How to use Onlywire for WordPress blogs with social bookmarking

After writing or recording a great blog post, the next step is to promote it through social bookmarking. These accounts include digg, propeller, furl, bebo, delicious, and tumblr, among many others. The problem is finding time to bookmark your content across dozens of accounts. Fortunately, services like Onlywire can automate social bookmarking on dozens of leading websites, and including plugins or buttons on your WordPress blog will make blog syndication easy.

Onlywire is the leading online software for media syndication to major social bookmarking sites. Professional bloggers, publishers, and webmasters trust it to market their online businesses and those of their clients. Best of all, the service is very profitable for paid users and easy to implement to promote users. Follow the step-by-step instructions in these videos to promote the service on a WordPress blog and get the same benefits from paid users.

Here are some helpful tips for dialing when using Onlywire:

1) Make it easy! I prefer to use larger icons for buttons and plugins to increase visibility. If you’re only sticking with the button, try placing it above the fold so viewers don’t have to scroll down the sidebar to find it. This increases the likelihood that readers will participate amidst all the clutter that fills blog pages.

2) Create amazing content. This goes without saying, as quality content is the cornerstone when it comes to contributing on social media. Only the best content will be flagged by others, so strive to exceed the norm in your market. It will also stimulate viral bookmarks where friends or followers spread it further among their social networks.

3) Give instructions and directions. Automated social bookmarking services are relatively new. Encouraging the use of bookmarks in your post is acceptable as long as it doesn’t sound desperate. However, showing your readers ‘how’ to add bookmarks gradually is much more effective as they will need bookmarking accounts to get started. Current Onlywire users following and liking your blog posts are like gold!

4) Bookmark other content. I highly recommend this for several reasons. For one thing, social bookmarking websites like Digg are looking for spammers who simply bookmark their unique content. Many marketers risk account termination if each bookmark is a different blog post from their single domain name. Strive for a 3-to-1 balance where you bookmark other people’s content (or at least, their other domains, like articles or press releases), in addition to your own blog. Forming an advocacy group based on cross-promotion will benefit everyone.
