How to Find Unbelievable Content to Share on Social Media
Finding amazing content for your blog, social media accounts, and e-mail campaigns are tough. If you own a business or run social media accounts for a living, you know how challenging it can be to keep your followers interested in your brand. The good news is, the internet is here to help. There is an abundance of great websites that find the best, most shareable content on the web, and deliver them to your fingertips. You just have to know where to look.
Here is a list of our favorite places to find amazing content.
[su_heading size=”18″]1. StumbleUpon[/su_heading]
Founded in 2001, StumbleUpon is a discovery engine that finds content for its users. All you have to do is sign up, select your topics of interest and start stumbling. The great thing about StumbleUpon is that within a few minutes, you can find content to last a few days. Warning: Highly addictive.
[su_heading size=”18″]2. Reddit[/su_heading]
Reddit is a social networking site where users can submit content, text posts, or links to be voted upon by the community at large. What’s great about this format is that the best content always rises to the top, meaning you won’t have to read through the bad. There are thousands of subreddits (like categories) ranging from travel to real estate – no matter what industry you’re in, Reddit can help find you great content.
[su_heading size=”18″]3. Google Currents[/su_heading]
If you have a tablet, Google Currents is a great app to find content. You can add streams that revolve around your industry, or be more specific and follow individual feeds like the Wall Street Journal. I’d recommend saving the content you like in Currents to a service like Pocket so that you can keep all of your content in one place.
[su_heading size=”18″]4. Feedly[/su_heading]
Feedly works seamlessly across all devices and allows you to follow RSS feeds from relevant content providers. Spend half an hour exploring feeds in the app, and Feedly will push you articles daily that you can use in your marketing campaigns. You can even add the articles straight into Buffer or Hootsuite.
