Hi WAers,

Guess what? Flipboard is a free social media magazine that is available to everyone. The platform can help boost engagement and increase website traffic. It provides us with another avenue to reach more people with our content. Another member here at WA told me about this platform. Its worth checking it out.

We can benefit from this platform by taking the time to research and see how it will help our marketing strategies. In this post, I will explain what Flipboard is, why it's worth using, and how to gain more reach and get more eyes to our blog posts with a marketing strategy.

What is Flipboard and How Does It Work?

Flipboard is a social media platform with over 145 million monthly active users. It enables users to discover and share content in a visually appealing magazine-like format.

The Flipboard app is a personalized news aggregator where users can select from various topics to find what interests them.

You can also use it on the website.

Flipboard curates articles, videos, images, and social media based on users' preferences. Its magazine-style layout catches users' attention and lets them flip through pages quickly.

On Flipboard, users can follow magazines or publishers for tailored content. They can also create magazines to save interesting articles and share them with others. They also have a Flipboard TV that you can view.

How it Works for Creators:

  • Sign Up: Signing up for a Flipboard account requires an email address, username, and password.
  • Customize Profile: Creators can customize their profiles by adding a profile picture, bio, and other information to make their accounts more appealing.
  • Create Magazines: Click the "Create Magazine" button on their profile page; creators can create magazines on specific topics. They can add a title, description, and cover photo.
  • Add Content: Creators can add content to their magazines in two ways - by flipping articles from other sources or by creating original content directly on Flipboard's platform.
  • Interact with Other Users: By liking, commenting, or sharing other users' content, creators help build a community and increase their visibility.
  • Promote Content: Sponsored flips and paid promotions are some tools Flipboard offers creators to promote their content.
  • Analyze Performance: With Flipboard's analytics dashboard, creators can track the performance of their magazines.

Flipboard allows creators to interact with other users, promote content, and analyze performance. It also provides a visually engaging interface and personalized curation capabilities, making it an excellent platform for businesses to boost website engagement and drive traffic.

Why Flipboard Can Boost Your Website's Engagement and Traffic

You might not have considered Flipboard before, and neither have I. I did learn that it can boost your website's engagement and traffic in ways you never thought possible.

This is very interesting, indeed, Brenda! It might take me a while to look into this, but eventually, I might make it there. I have too many physical tasks taking up a bunch of my time lately, but I have definitely saved all of this for future reference!

Thank you for all that you do here in WA!

Jeff

I get that there is just not enough time. You do have an outside physical business which I get. Sure you are welcome. I think it is a great place for you to promote your book.

Very much appreciated, Brenda! Likely, between Mel and I, we will promote WA there too!

I think it's beneficial. Just hope you guys have more time for it. Thanks for being an excellent support for Mel.

I think so too, Brenda! Thanks for the kind words!
