Promoting British Articles: Example
Anglophile writer? British writer? How I promote you
Have you reviewed a British book or film? Or written about somewhere in the UK? I'm looking for any articles here on this site with a British angle to share with the world.
Why am I promoting your work?
Because I think that the UK is underexposed in other countries, especially the USA. (And after all, this is one of the USA's top websites.) So, because I am British and living in Florida, my role is to promote your work. It's not that I want us to take over the world or anything...
Social media and more
Below you'll see just some of the ways that I have been promoting an article by a fellow-writer. Take a look at the wonderful Lake District.
Of course,I want to promote only the very best, so if I can ask just one favour - please check your article and make sure that it's truly wonderful :)
Here are the promotion examples
1. One of the first things I'm going to do with your British-themed article is promote it on Pinterest.
As a long-time pinner, I have quality followers who are interested in what I post.
I post to many boards - some have tens of thousands of followers - so I'll find the right niche for your article.
For some of my own work, the majority of hits come from Pinterest.
2. If your article has a stunning product that will interest readers, I'll pin that too.
Please be sure that the products you have are not discontinued or temporarily unavailable though.
We want to maximise your opportunities, not send people down a blind alley :)
3. Here, you see the article uploaded to Rebelmouse.This is a service that I love. Note that I have the following sections; reviews, recipes, gift ideas, design and general articles (which covers just about anything).
Just for cranky-designer reasons, I like to post black and white images to the general articles section so if you have one on your article, that's terrific.
4. One of the splendid features I like about Rebelmouse is that when I post there, that post automatically goes to my site, britflorida.com.
Here you see it in the image.
The most recently posted will always be top left, until they are replaced by the next post.
But the page has an infinite scroll so your link and image is permanent.
5. Twitter next - which is self-explanatory.
As you can see, the tweet goes to over 3,000 followers.
Let's hope for a few good retweets - your link could go all round the world. :)
6. This is my Spot On UK account at Scoop.
Your article will be posted there and the chances are that I'll ring the changes and post a different image.
Even more exposure.
7. Your article will be at the top (or near the top) of the Carry on Britain online daily newspaper.
Even though this paper is daily - and tweeted to all my Twitter followers, your article will be permanently in the archive section.
8. If I really really love your article, then I might write a page about it on britflorida.com.
The site is comparatively new - just about a year old - but gets plenty of hits and Google comes a-calling every day, as do other search engines.
9. Here you see how the article looks and where is located on the site. In effect, your article becomes the top article until it's replaced by a new one.
Then it moved to the right and gradually down the page.
However, the article is permanently on the internet and in search engines, plus can be found using the site's built-in search function.
10. Tumblr comes next.
Both the red headline and the image link directly to your lens.
I don't normally add copy - for the sake of speed - but if you'd like me to add a few sentences, just send me the copy via the contact button on my profile page on this site.
11. I nearly forgot the famous Facebook! Here you can see that the article was added to the Carry on Britain page.
With all the social media accounts, please feel free to share, retweet, re-pin and bring exposure to your article via your own followers.
12. Finally, Google +.
Although I say 'finally, I also create periodical newsletters and other promotional items too.
Plus, I have specific pages on this site to promote books, films and so on.
It all just depends on the time I have available (it's better to ignore me altogether when it's a Formula One race weekend!)
