Create Custom Promo-Tweets, Promote on Facebook and Linkedin

This week I'm really excited to announce the launch of two great features to help you increase engagement and reach new audiences: customized Promo-Tweets and auto-posting to Facebook and Linkedin.

As the Twitter community grows, so does the competition. Over the past months you have told us that getting your message heard across Twitter is becoming more difficult by the day. You asked for control over your Promo-Tweet messaging as well as more options for promotion.

Create custom messaging:

Now you can tailor your message to best fit your niche. You know best what makes your community tick, and click. Add a #tag, modify your mentions and customize your text. Read more about getting started with this new feature here.

Don't want to change a thing? No problem. The "daily is out" is set as the default tweet. Changing it is up to you!

Automatically promote on Linkedin and Facebook: 

We've added auto-posting to Facebook and Linkedin. Create a custom post and share your paper url, or just the featured article, automatically, with each new edition.

Branding tip! Add a thumbnail cover image to represent your paper when shared.

Paper thumbnails increase clicks. When your paper is shared across social platforms you can share your branding along with it. Create graphic or upload your and replace the standard "P" with each share.

If you choose to share an article from your paper, we'll post the article image instead of the cover image.

Leave us a comment below, or Tweet us @SmallRivers and let us know what you think once you've tried them out. We look forward to hearing from you.

Tuesday Tip! Join us Tuesday for #Blogchat Europe

The week has only just begun but I am already looking, this this week's Tuesday tip is: join me and @Smallrivers for #blogchat Europe on Tuesday, October 8!

Whether your company has 2 or 2000 employees, blogging ranks as one of the most widely trusted and sure-fire way to build authority, grow relationships and generate new business leads. But how? Well, that's what #blogchat is all about!

Mack Collier's #blogchat is a Twitter power-house Tweetchat dedicated to helping YOU get the most out of blogging.

Whether you are a small business owner or a marketer working for a large mega-company, Mack and the #blogchat community provide great insight and help answer your blogging questions.

Because the North American version of #Blogchat is tough for us Europeans to make (it takes place at 3am, CET) Mack offers a European friendly version at 20h, every second Tuesday of the month.

Don't miss out! Pencil in the last three European #blogchats of 2013 into your calendar now:

Tuesday, October 8 - Blog Plug-ins that increase business networking and productivity
Tuesday, November 12 - tba (aka: something really cool)
Tuesday, December 10 - tba (aka: something really cool)

20h CET, 1pm Central.

Just because this chat is called '#Blogchat Europe' it doesn't mean it is for Europeans only. This just means it is held at a time that the European, North American, South American, African and Middle Eastern continents can manage. How cool is that? (Sorry Australasia, we'll have to work on that)

You'll find me there @kdhungford and don't worry about language barriers or making mistakes. We learn a lot and even more important -- we have fun! (And, we score cameo's in blog posts like this one from Tom Martin on Social Media Examiner!)
