Attract NEW Fans by Cross-Promoting

Psst! Want new social fans that LOVE you? Cross-promoting is a powerful way to draw your fans from one of your social sites to another.

Picture this: You probably have Facebook fans who are also active on several other sites—and would love to connect with you. Yet they may not know you're active on any other sites. Tapping into this art of cross-promoting will help you build stronger relationships across a variety of social networks.

Consider these strategies:

1. Add your latest blog to your social postings. Think Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, Google+.

2. Create video. Do you have some new photos you've just uploaded to a Facebook photo album? Take those same photos and create a short video. Then, in the video description box, invite people to see more of your photos on Facebook and provide them a link to the Facebook photo album. Here are some tools to help you create videos from your still images.

3. Maximize your Facebook posting options. Consider carousel posts, slide shows and Canvas.

You'll reap the rewards of brand advocates who will help you market each time they like, comment or share your great content.

This Wouldn't Look Better as a Lake

"Wouldn't this look better as a lake?"

I was staring out into Yosemite Valley. Half Dome and El Capitan loomed in the distance—two natural landmarks accomplishing what I thought impossible: Make the giant sequoias gathered below look small.

"What?" I turned to the man standing next to me.

"A joke," he said. "Someone once thought this valley would make a great lake."

Get Your Kicks on ... Route 50?

Route 66 sure gets a lot of hype, but have you sent groups along U.S. Route 50 lately? Probably not. In July 1986, Life magazine dubbed the Nevada portion, "The Loneliest Road in America." And yet, from rural mountain ranges to desolate deserts and miles upon miles of rich farmland, Route 50 stretches across 3,073 miles from Ocean City, Maryland to Sacramento, California. It spans 12 states and links four state capitals—offering the most complete cross-sectional journey along the United States midriff.
