#SocialMediaHacks: Feedly

Does social media ever seem like a beast your business must constantly keep feeding? A hungry lion on the prowl? Or worse yet, a cranky toddler who wants his snacks NOW!!! Here's a secret: You don’t have to comb the Internet for hours searching for content to use. Save time and get the job done with a social media savior called Feedly. If you’re not already using it, get thyself to Feedly.com and get cracking.

All you have to do is set yourself up on Feedly and start personalizing. At Idea Decanter, we wanted a feed of all the stories out there in the blogosphere about Washington and Oregon wines. Feedly walks you through narrowing down your content with keywords and then you’re set to go. Every time you go back to the site, there’s a hyper-local online magazine just waiting for you.

Now, all you do is curate. We like to cherry pick the most relevant pieces on Northwest wine and share them with our followers. Did we mention you can push content straight from Feedly to your social media platforms? Your beast can be satisfied in a matter of minutes and you can get back to work. “Shut the front door!” you say. Did we mention it’s free? You're welcome.
