3 Things You Have To Do Before Submitting A Post To A Social Site

I will be writing on social sites like stumbleupon, digg, sphinn and more. Before writing posts about those social sites, you have few basic things which you need to do before starting to submit posts to the social sites. A deep thinking may bring up more than three, but if you consider the top 3 very basic things you need to do, they are:
1. A Good Image
2. Well Written Profile Page
3. Good Knowledge About The Site

Now let me take you into every point and make it clear on what I mean by every point.

1. Good Image
A good image is something which looks really unique. It should look good and at the same time something no one has ever had. The purpose of doing this is to build a brand for you with the image. There are certain people in social sites whom you can easily find out by seeing the avatar picture. People like Muhammad Saleem, Maki and many more have the same picture (as far as I know) in all the social sites. You can have an image of yourself or a cartoon of your picture or some creative logo. Come up with an image and use it in all your social sites.

2. Well Written Profile Page
Every social site lets you to write your own page or at least they let you to write the ‘about me’ column. You have to use this space to your advantage. People who don’t know about you will check your profile and if you clearly tell about you in your profile, it will be very helpful for them to get to know you. You can also put the url of your blog to make your blog popular among people. Tell them who you are, what you do and your contact information if possible. Would you believe if I tell you that I have got freelance writing gigs through stumbleupon messaging option? That is the advantage of having a well written profile page. Knowing

3. Good Knowledge About The Site

It is a must to have some good knowledge about the site before submitting any post to the social site. So what does a good knowledge mean? It is knowledge of which kind of posts have more chances to hit the front page of the site. Say, in sphinn SEO related posts have more chance of hitting the front page. Likewise every site has its own favorite topics. To know this, read the posts in the popular page of the social sites. The more you read, the more you will know about the site. Also in few sites, you don’t need to have many friends before you can hit the front page. In stumbleupon, you don’t need many friends to get a post to the buzz page. Even if you have 20 fans it is enough. While in few other sites, you need to have many friends before you can get a page to hit the front page. You will know all these only by observing the social sites closer.

What all do you think as a ‘must do’ before joining a social site? Do you have the above things? Please share your views in the comments.
