Managing multiple streams of content across a variety of themes can be difficult, but Feedly is a handy RSS and Keyword app that helps you to build out feeds across topics or brands as well as Boards for later use.
We must admit, it has only been a recent addition to the TMM applications of choice, but it is quickly finding a nice home on the screen for keeping an eye on news and ideas.
Quick Ways to use Feedly
- Follow all the publications you currently enjoy e.g. ABC News, Business Insider, Mumbrella, Hubspot, Lifehack, The Collective Hub, Pedestrian TV….
- Follow suggested blogs for themes that you are interested in e.g. Marketing, social media, SEO, technology, finance, cooking, productivity…
- Create Boards and save articles for inspiration e.g. Board for Blog ideas to inspire writing, Board for recipes to brighten up cooking, or longer reads for when you have a bit of time.
If you aren’t already using Google Alerts, this could potentially be life-changing. You don’t have to use Feedly for this, Google has it as a function: Google Alerts
Step 1. Set up alerts for your name, business name/s, key terms that you should or want to know everything about and you might want to set up alerts for your competitor’s names to keep an eye on mentions of them in the news.
Step 2. Review in a weekly or daily email.
Feedly has a pretty great basic free option and their paid service is incredible. Plus there is a phone app that means you can flick through mobile and come back to the same lists and boards.
For anyone trying to find content to share on their social media presence, it can be really hard to find content every day that feels relevant. Feedly can help building out lists across key topic areas. Have a think about the industry your business works in and what would be topical for that as well as topics or themes that you want your brand to present as part of its identity. If that doesn’t quite make sense for you, don’t worry, that is what we do.
Still not 100% sure or want a little more strategic help with your marketing? That’s what we do!
