For those who haven’t had the time or inclination to get down and dirty with social media, it can seem pretty pie-in-the-sky. It can also seem like a lot of work is involved. Well, ‘work’ is involved in anything worthwhile, but the smart ones find the marketing tools and techniques that leverage their efforts while saving them time.
A lot of those marketing tools and techniques are being written about online. One just has to know which sources are reliable and which are, well, less than reliable. One lady I follow on Twitter for how-to and neat new social media or blogging tool information is Kristi Hines. She’s a freelance writer, but more than that she zeros-in on the practical how-tos of marketing online and on building a social media network.
Her writing style is to-the-point, she covers a lot of ground in a post and presents a lot of valuable information. One such example of her how-to writing style is this gem of a post Kristi wrote for The Daily Egg covering various social media badges and various techniques to assist you in making your blog or web site “more social”.
Kristi’s recent list of tools include adding the social media badges, some pretty cool WordPress plug-ins and she included a section on how to stimulate more comments. Check out Kristi’s post on how to Make Your Business More Social.

When you find someone who delivers the goods, the only right thing to do is to share. Let me know if you find Kristi’s information to be of value to you in your online marketing efforts.
