    This is a big help. As a sole owner of a professional service, I want to have a social media presence, but don’t have staff to do it. I am the one and finding time to find good content can feel like climbing a mountain. I either don’t have time, or I can’t find content I want to use. So this gives me a few more places to explore.

      HI Dawn πŸ™‚ It can be an absolute mission to source good content all the time. I’m glad this list has made it easier for you! You can also try setting up some Google Alerts. Have you ever done that before?

        That’s exactly what I was going to recommend. I work within the automotive industry, primarily classic cars, and receive Google Alerts of “classic cars,” “antique cars,” and “muscle cars.” I have crafted several facebook posts from this, and it’s sent straight to my inbox! No searching required.

          It’s really an essential tool in the social managers arsenal. But be careful when using only one source – it can make your content a touch one sided if you do it too often. Thanks Dustin!

            Now, I’m trying some RSS feeds on some sites of some of the leaders in the field and some I just like. That is bringing more targeted articles.

            Let me know how it goes, I’m always interested to hear if you discover any new ‘tricks’ for making Google Alerts easier to use in your specific niche. Hope to hear from you soon Dawn πŸ™‚

        Yes, John, I do use Google alerts as a main source. My topic is marriage and relationships, so I also receive a lot of current political debate which is not what I want. I’ve tried refining it and although I still receive a lot of that, it is not as much and I do find some good tidbits.
