Driving Traffic to Your Website
MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, RSS, blogs. etc., are forms of social media that can be employed to steer traffic to your website. Most of these can easily link to a website.
Blogging is one of the more effective social networking tools and Mercury supports two blogging solutions:
Quick Blogcast gives your customers two tools in one – a blogging tool and a podcasting tool. A blog, or “Web log,” is similar to an online journal, while a podcast is an audio or video recording broadcast over the Internet.
Businesses have adopted both blogs and podcasts as inexpensive ways to lure visitors back to their Web sites for regularly updated news, tips and advice. Quick Blogcast comes with over 60 customizable blog templates, a podcast recording tool with CD-quality recording and an On-Site Player that visitors can use to listen to podcasts right from the user’s Web site.
Native applications exist for Android, iPhone/iPod Touch, and BlackBerry which provide access to some of the features in the WordPress Admin panel and work with WordPress.com and many WordPress.org blogs.
