The best promotion is self-promotion. The http://entapriseentertainment.blogspot.com blog is set up so that you, as an artist, can make the best use of the blog by promoting it yourself on social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Digg, and StumbleUpon. This will keep your hardcore fans in the loop as well as reel in new fans.
To "up-vote", "share", or "submit" your blog, follow these steps:
- Go to http://entapriseentertainment.blogspot.com and find the blog about you. You may have to click "Previous Entries" at the bottom.
- Click on the Title of the blog post.
- You will notice 4 counter badges on each side of the post that will follow you down the page.
- To the left is Twitter, Facebook (Like), Reddit, and Digg. To the right is Delicious, StumbleUpon, Google Buzz, and Mixx.
- The best promo is the Facebook "Share" button. Use that badge to share to your wall. Facebook is our #1 traffic source.
- To retweet on Twitter, click the "retweet" button (top left badge), allow tweetmeme access (it's safe), and tweet away.
- To like on Facebook, click the "Like" button directly below that.
- To Up-vote on Reddit, click the up arrow on the third badge on the left.
- To Digg the blog, click the Digg button. A pop-up will appear, click Digg (or submit) the post. Close the pop-up when finished.
- To bookmark on Delicious, use the badge on the top right. A pop-up will appear. Add appropriate tags in the tag box (space separated), and hit "save".
- To like/add on StumbleUpon, click the green/blue badge (second from top on right). The blog should already be submitted, but if not, just add in the categories and a comment before adding it. If you have mutual followers, please share the blog with them.
- To Buzz using Google Buzz, click the 3rd badge down from the top right. Everyone who uses Gmail is automatically signed up for this service. It functions much like Twitter.
- To Mixx, Click the bottom right badge. If it is already submitted, it should be no problem to upvote it, and if not, make sure you include description, tags, categories, and a comment. Don't forget about the captcha in the lower right hand corner.
