Welcome to our food blogging Podcast and here we are with Food Blogging FM 008.

Today we are talking about social media. You know that dreaded type of traffic that normally takes over our life! Actually as a food blogger you probably spend more time on social media than you do eating your creations!

I can’t remember the first time I discovered social media and the value of what it had for my business. It just always felt like it was there. The first social media I ever joined was MySpace and quite frankly it did my head in. So boring and so many sections you had to fill in. Then after a month you got about 5 visitors.

Talk about a waste of time and energy!

Thankfully things have improved since then and since we started Recipe This we have had just short of 10,000 visitors, so it has certainly changed over the years.

But then again, back then you had a lot of forum marketing, SEO was easier and you could make a lot more in ebook sales.

Though I do prefer blogging in 2016 compared to blogging in 2008.

In this Podcast though the focus is on getting yourself about on the different social media channels. What to do on each of them and where the majority of your time needs to be spent.

I will also be showing you what to do is a bare minimum on just 6 minutes of your time a day!
