CHAMBERANSWERS - TIPS AND TRICKS FOR SOCIAL MEDIA, MARKETING AND BLOGGING
After a considerable amount of focus on creating ChamberAnswers, I am now spending some time to post again on StackIdeas Forums. My focus is to help people to learn new skills, by posting Tips and Tricks I have learned, and what I gather for my own business and social network - ChamberAnswers.com. This will be at least one new post per week as a thank you to my favourite team of hard-working people - the StackIdeas Team and the loyal supporters that gather here.

The first tip and trick were written by Brendan M. Egan • Guest Writer Founder & CEO, Simple SEO Group for Entrepreneur Network & Magazine.

All that time can easily go to waste if the post doesn't drive traffic and no one is reading it. Before dedicating one, two, or even more hours of your life to writing a blog post, follow these tips to make sure you're heading in the right direction.

NOTE: Part of my daily routine is to create visual posts for my own network ChamberAnswers, and also for @chamberanswers on Twitter, which has 3,200 plus followers and is growing weekly. Creating the visuals is really easy, by typing in positive quotes into my Facebook post, making the change to the background, posting it, then taking a snapshot using Jing. I use Jing as my favourite tool of choice, to help me with the visuals in my Page feed, and then save them into a folder for use on CA, and Twitter.
I make it part of my routine every more and early afternoon. I create 6 new visual quotes a day, for each chamber of commerce and small business owners to use and share. It is to lift them up by sharing something they can use. The following visual image of a quote I like is below. Time to create, post and then snap and share was less than 2 minutes.
