Success in Social Media With The Rule of Ten

Building a strong following on Pinterest and StumbleUpon can be the linchpin to increasing daily traffic to your blog. To do so, you need to follow the Rule of Ten.

Always post ten community engaged links between each self-promotional piece you pin or stumble.

It is that easy!

Find photos you love, products you'd like to buy, or fun projects, and pin/stumble them. If all you do is post from your own site, you will fail to gain followers on Pinterest and will not have posts picked up by StumpleUpon. (Tip: With StumbleUpon, make sure you are placing a quick description in the comment section of each post.)

After every ten pins/stumbles, post something from your site and watch your numbers grow!

Marketing creative, community engagement specialist, technophile, photographer, food and wine enthusiast, and the founder and editor-in-chief of The Road to The Good Life, a lifestyle blog about appreciating and enhancing your life by being grateful for the "haves" instead of lingering on the "wants." There you will find personal stories about my life and family weaved in with real-life, achievable entertaining tips, recipes for hearty home cooked meals, and DIY projects for capturing and sharing memories. I believe the best place to swap stories is over a shared meal, preferably a Thai-meal served family style, and teach an online introduction class to Thai Flavors and host the Family Dinners at The Station supper club in San Francisco.
