It’s 2013 and by now we all know that a strong social media presence can be a game changer.
Twitter and Pinterest took the world by storm and drew millions of visitors and hits every hour.
And as we all know that equals traffic galore. And more traffic means more conversions, sales, partners et al. Everyone wants results and many people I know are following one path only to get there.

As we all know blogging is my avenue of choice. However I don’t rely on a few words on one blog to do all the work. Initially I started with a Tumblr blog. And it was awesome. The app was easy and I liked that it would post to my twitter and facebook as well. I increased my social media range and saved me time. Every post hit 3 different locations in the social. media realm. I effectively tripled my reach while reducing my efforts. And hey folks, who doesn’t need more time?
Not long after I realized a mentor used WordPress and decided I’d try it. It was my secondary blog so I just duplicated there manually. After about a month two things happened.
1. Tumblr became buggy.
As in it didn’t work right and then was yanked from blackberry so what was left on my smartphone was effectively wasted kb’s.
2. WordPress had so much more to offer.
The app was crisper and more fluid. It also had vastly more options like statistics, easy link adding, Bold, Italics, and I could add and or buy a .com and hide my info- All from my Dashboard.
I’ve preached on knowing your stats before and if you didn’t read it just know that you need to know where you are to get where you need to be. Good statistics and analytics will show you what works and what doesn’t. Let’s say you have a linkedin account that gives you zero traffic, but your twitter gets you 400 views a month. Well folks now you know where your efforts are paying off. You know where to put more emphasis for the greatest reward.

Lastly, WordPress also had the ability to post to Google+, Twitter, facebook, Yahoo, Linkedin, and TUMBLR.
Now I could not only keep my tumblr but have my reach exceed its grasp? Was that clever or did I muck it up? Either way the point is salient. WordPress provided better tools, better advice, and a better app. And they support blackberry as zealously as android or iphone. So I’m not short changed, I’m simply blessed.

As I write this blog post on my blackberry I’d like to say this isn’t a paid endorsement just an example of the provider who suits my needs. I get nothing for this collection of thoughts wrapped in a WP Post. What I did get was a way to expand my social media presence simply and professionally. More time, more money, more happy. I won. So folks find the way that puts you in the winners circle too.
