A Quick Trick To Generate Multiple RSS Feeds

Finding
you haven't got a lot of RSS feeds to work with?

Here's
a little trick to help you automate and leverage the process using a
blogging site called www.Posterous.com

The short version is you can post to
your Posterous Blog by email, and once you set it up, it will
automatically repost those items to a host of other social media
accounts



There's currently 26 different services
listed and you can actually have multiple accounts in several of
them, so in theory you could set up 30+ different accounts and have
every blog post you write automatically posted to each of them!



That would be
overkill though.



Social Media
accounts work best when you use the service regularly and personally.



So what I'll
suggest is that you only use this strategy to automate the work
you'd be prepared to do manually
. ie. Only post to the sites you
actually visit regularly.



So to get started. Go take a look
at the service, sign up - it's totally free and set up your blog.

You
can added a couple of 'web pages' so adda bit of a bio and some sample
images.  Make sure you link to your other website/pages and post a short article to your blog to test it out.



It's worth noting that the 'autoposts'
will link back to your Posterous website, so you want to spend a
little bit of time making sure that 1. looks fantastic and 2. has
plenty of links back to your main website!



Make sure you use a relevant keyword
phrase for your username. (Try and slip photos or images
in there if you can!)



You have the option to use your own
domain name if you like. If you do, you
can register a domain here
for about half the price of the
service they offer!



Once you're all set up, have a look for
the Add A Service button under the Autopost tab. That will open a
list of all the social media accounts you can post to automatically.



Start with those you already use and
set them up with permission to post to your account.



Then you can set up accounts on any
other Social Media Services that interest you.



As you set up each of these sites, make
sure you copy the relevant RSS feed URL to your plain text list.



When it comes submission time, there is
little difference between submitting one feed URL or submitting 20, so it
makes sense to get as many as possible set up and then complete the
process just the once for all of them.
