I like to try new things that might be helpful for online marketing efforts.
One new format I have learned about is Snip.ly, which has free and paid subscriptions.
Here is the basic idea:
You find an article you want to share with others on the Internet. You copy the link to the article (I used a Wall Street Journal article link for sharing on Twitter) and paste that into your Snip.ly account.
Then after you enter that link, you can attach to the article you are sharing a link of your own along with a message and link text for your link.
When you share the Snip.ly created link, you are sharing both the original article and content of your own. And presumably, you share content of your own that relates to the original article.
Look at this Snip.ly that I tweeted after creating it — and then click on the link to my blog post that “fits” the topic of the shared Wall Street Journal article:
