For a long time, I assumed that this was a well-known technique, but after talking to some clients I realized that it’s not as common as I thought.

...In social media that is. And to be really specific, on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. Some 81% of moms would buy more from a brand if rewarded, and over 50% are willing to engage with a brand on Facebook and other social media platforms if provided incentive, according to a recent report.…

If there’s one major flaw with the way that many businesses use automation tools, it’s that they’re not able to properly control the flow of content from its longest form down to it’s shortest form. This is unfortunate because using RSS feeds to post to Facebook and Twitter from a blog, for example, doesn’t save much time at all but minimizes the effectiveness of the networks.
