3 Simple Steps to Increase Traffic to Your Website Using Storify
I’m not ashamed to admit it: Storify is one of my favorite social media tools.
I curate content for my professional job and for my personal brand and other interests. And I use Storify to do that.
A Storify primer
If you haven’t used Storify before, here’s a quick primer: You create content by curating from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, websites and more. You publish your content when you’re ready, and then you can notify people that you used their content and embed the content you created onto your website.
It’s that last part that I’m here to help.
Picture this: You create your Storify content and then embed the content on your website.
The next step is to send out notifications to people that you used their content. (Just make sure you optimize your Storify notifications.)
But you can do better than the default Storify notification. And all it takes is three simple steps.
Once you have finished your Storify and hit publish, hit the “Distribute” tab and then copy the embed code.
Paste the embed code on a page or post under your domain. Publish the page and grab the shortened URL for the page or post.
Then, again on Storify.com, hit the “Distribute” tab and then “Notify mentions.” Storify offers a default message to send to Twitter users. Instead of the Storify domain-shortened link, paste your shortened URL over it.
Simple steps, big difference
If you do those three simple steps (combined with optimizing your Storify notifications for one person per tweet), you will send all those you notify straight to your website, where they will see the embedded Storify.
Without those steps, you would send those Twitter users straight to Storify.com.
They’re an easy few steps to take, but if you don’t do them, you could be losing out on easy website traffic.
