Connect

Connect with other influencers in the sector. Make connections with other organizations or bloggers that have large followings. If you are using a piece of their information, give them credit and link back to them. Use tools like LinkedIn and your e-newsletter to push content in varied platforms.

 

Ask

Email

There are two options for email. If your organization posts once or twice a month, feel free to email your mailing list to inform them of new content. If your organization updates every day to every week, create a once a month newsletter with top blog post. This will let the audience know that there is new content without flooding their inbox.
