Flipboard Really Does Work!

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage 209100

After reading Anita Clark's blog about Flipboard - Content Sharing - Flipping Out Over Flipboard, I decided to finally break down and give it a try. So, I went ahead and created 8 magazines of topics that have proven popular on other social websites. These included tips for buyers, sellers, and home owners.

The Cameron Team on Flipboard

The first 2 days, I went through all my green content and flipped it using the handy browser button for Firefox. Not much happened in way of traffic or followers, but research of other bloggers told me that it would take some time.

The next day, I started flipping other people's shared articles/posts. I also commented on a few, but I'll be honest and tell you I didn't spend much time on doing this because I had to focus on more pressing manners.

When I went back the next day, I was surprised to see that we had 49 viewers and 692 page flips. So, I popped over to check my website analytics. We had 20 referrals from Flipboard and it's only multiplied since then!

If you're hesitating to add another website to your arsenal, stop and give Flipboard a try. I haven't seen as good a response as this since Google Plus created their Collections. I'm very excited to see where it goes.

Oh, and don't forget to follow The Cameron Team on Flipboard!

This is interesting. I saved the last post on Flipboard to go back and review. I think it's about time to do that.!

I particularily like the layout and with names like Martha Stewart. If it is professionally done I think people will be interested in your effort hoping to get more business from them.

Thanks for sharing.

I use it daily but it is still not as good as Zite was. Flipboard bought it and shut it down. I did import my categories but I still miss Zite.
