Social media.

We talk about it a lot on Beyond Bylines. You may have read some recent posts about Twitter chats and online tools and apps for publishers.

We run into good social media sites all the time.

RazorSocial covers social media tools, blogging and SEO, content marketing, and analytics.

The company itself was founded by Ian Cleary, who’s the “blood, sweat and tears behind one of the most trafficked social media /content marketing blogs in the world.”

Indeed, RazorSocial’s “tribe” includes more than 20,000 subscribers; the site itself received more than a million in 2014.

Popular posts include How to Build a Content Conversion Funnel, Social Media Campaign Planning Guide – The Rocket Formula, and Google Tag Manager: An Essential Tool for Website Activity Tracking.

Buffer’s Social Media Blog offers “thoughts on social media and online marketing.”

This is a great blog. It features good writing and interesting posts.

Among the ones that caught my eyeHow to Keep Your Social Media Images Looking Fresh (Even if You’re Posting Every Day) was probably my favorite.

“Not only do you have to post consistently to gain traction, the content has be to timely, relevant to your audience, and engaging,” says Alan Cassinelli. “Social media is for conversations after all, not megaphones.”

Other interesting posts include Snapchat is Growing Up: Everything You Need to Know About Snapchat’s Latest Update and The Always-Updated Guide to Social Media Logos.

Pushing Social is a boutique agency that helps clients with social media and content marketing strategies.

The company was founded by Stan Smith. It also keeps a great blog.

Some of the posts that I enjoyed include Shallow Hal Social Media. Check Yourself., How to Create Better B2B Content, and Read This Before You Give Up on Blog Email Subscriptions.

Smith says in his post about better B2B content that creating stellar content is “tough but essential.”

“That’s a good thing, because content marketing will cease to be valuable the moment it becomes easy,” Smith writes. “Tough strategies create profitable competitive advantages.”

Social Media Slant is the blog of Cendrine Marrouat.

It features “social media from a human perspective.”

This is a really helpful blog – it got me thinking about a number of things that I don’t typically consider, like protecting your blog on social media.

Other notable posts I found include Guest Post: What to do When Your Blog Goes Viral, Yes, Social Media is a Lot of Work, and Guest Post: These 5 Brands will Make You Consider Including Quizzes in Your Strategy.
