Promoting with 7 social media

Animated GIFYesterday I created a post about animated GIFs.  On this page, 7 different social media are used to promote the blog post about how to create this special GIF.  This page show how those social media were used.


Facebook, Twitter & Google Plus

The website was promoted twice on Facebook.  It was on the Social Media Marketing page and the YouTube Video Creators page.

To find the Twitter post, go to the latest post that has the above picture of the yellow affiliate marketing button.

See the Google+ post. When you post a link to a web page on Google+, the picture at the top of the page automatically shows up.  In this case the first picture was an automated GIF.


See the LinkedIn article.
