First, you were told to post daily.
Then, you were told not to.
Now, I’m telling you to interact daily – and why this is a direct replacement for posting daily.
Why Daily Posting Seems Like a Good Idea
Writing every day gets your message out there for the world to see. Day after day, week after week… and so on.
Publish a great new post and your most devoted readers may jump on it on the day it goes out. They’ll read it, comment on it, and share it very quickly. You’ll feel a buzz… and you’ll want to post more.
What’s Really Going On Here?
You’re seeing the benefit of saying something memorable, getting people’s attention, and having them spread the word.
Publishing a new post isn’t the only way to get your message out there.
Interaction Reminds People You Exist
Saying something every day reminds people you’re still out there.
Comment on blogs. Email other bloggers. Post on social media sites. All of these things get you interacting with others.
You don’t have to post links to interact. Sometimes you shouldn’t post a link at all. Just make sure you say something memorable.
Don’t Do the Disappearing Act
If you only show up to tell people about your latest post, and you don’t talk about anyone but yourself, people will ignore you.
Do You Interact Daily?
Yes, it’s time consuming to keep up with everything – but are you interacting daily?
