What are some ways you all are finding success in promoting your articles on IB.  It seems the old ways are obsolete and not allowed.  Looking forward to your answers.

Hi I am new here and was not aware one had to promote our articles too.

Well, hopefully a catchy title and small, relevant points regarding the content should help. What kind of promotion apart from discussing the relevant article on this forum and sharing the links on your social sites might help - or is it the old way?

Pinterest is one method that is apparently doing quite well.

Facebook and Twitter work ok.

Google+, Twitter, Pinterest, and Reddit all seem to work fairly well.  I use those mostly on my personal website, but am looking to starting promoting my infobarrel content as well.

If you post to FB aren't you just promoting your article to your friends? How do you get a wider audience?

Create a separate Facebook page for your "writerly" activities. Works for me.

How do we find you on FB?

I also use Stumbleupon and Linked in. I am also exploring the idea of joining special FB and Linked In groups. If you use Pinterest put lots of pics in your articles and try to use really attention grabbing ones.

Search for 'Vic Dillinger' on Facebook--l think I'm the only one.  If I'm not, my avatar pic will let you know you found the right one.

So everyone is using different social media to promote articles. Sounds like FB and pintrest are the most popular for it. I'll have to try these out. I wonder what else works well...

Maybe if you have a personal blog with a following that's related to your article, you could promote it there?

Not that I have a blog with much of an audeience (yet, I hope) lol.

I always promoted my Girl Scout articles on my Girl Scout blog and vice versa. It was done via anchor text-nothing blaring. Pinterest is what generates a lot of traffic for me. Create one great image to pin and you can use that image in a Tweet as well.

My latest article tells you how to "set it and forget it" (with apologies to Ronco) for article promotion via a variety of channels. Take some time to set things up once, once a month do three or four clicks, and you're good to go with all your articles, no matter how many or how few. And best of all, it's free to use and doesn't require complicated technical know-how, and new articles will be automatically added.

Right now I have 1500+ targeted promotional spots scheduled throughout the year, through a half-dozen channels, and it all occurs automatically, including those time-sensitive articles for the holidays, hot weather, cold weather, etc. And that's only on my business website; once I get around to doing all my articles on IB and elsewhere it should be amazing! Check it out if you are serious about article promotion.

BTW if you have a sales blog, this makes affiliate sales a snap.

What's the name of your article for the "set it and forget it" for the article promotion?  I'm new here but I'm at the point I'm thinking about making some money here. 

I definately want to set things up once, right way the first time so anything that can help me to that is greatly appreciated!!!

It is never too late! Stick with your niche and make that one image a great one. I go to my most pinned articles and add a different picture to it so I can have it repinned again...it makes it appear fresh to the other pinners.

I have a FB page aleady.  If I want to create a page for "writerly" activities, is there a special way to do that?

Is this page completely separate from my existing page?  Just want to set up my stuff correctly the first time.

Thanks!!

It's called a "facebook fan page."

This may not appeal to all, but, if you get involved in some of the games on fb, you are encouraged to build teams which needs lots of friends, so players of those games add lots of friends. Although this does mean you have a lot of friends you actually do not know, they all get to see your feeds. And of course, they then may share to their friends if they like your article.

When I used to write for helium, I was running around 3000 friends on fb.

added, as I cant find a way of editing my above reply, join groups on fb that are relevant to your article subjects. often, something will crop up in the group posts that will give you an opportunity to link to an article. just done it lol

It's a bit time consuming, but I am using Google and Facebook to find special interest groups. Using Travel for example, in Google, I use "communities" and look for ones that focus on travel. It tells you how large the community is, so you will know whether it's worth your while posting your article. For Facebook I would google "Facebook travel" to discover Facebook blogs, etc on the topic. Ones that you can post to that have received a large number of likes are the best. (note - some are private communities or personal blogs that don't allow public posts)
