can be great tools if applied correctly.
- Remember, it's social media. Don't post your blog and forget about it. Read the comments, follow up with your readers, engage in dialogue.
- Know your subject matter. Local or specialized reporting/opinion can give you greater authenticity and expertise. Your value and impact will establish your brand.
- Set a goal for posts per week and stick with it. Quality over quantity. But quantity is important. Timing is essential if your content is time-sensitive.
