Thanks to JD Lasica for including me in his latest post on Socialmedia.biz
I discovered GaggleAMP through the only man I respect and trust enough to get me to hook up all my social media profiles to automatically retweet and repost everything he tweets and posts, Shel Holtz. After all these years, all my favorite people get to work together: JD Lasica, for whom I blog; Shel Holtz, with whom I Gaggle; and Glenn Gaudet, for whom I Gaggle. Here’s a post that JD just wrote about our secret weapon, GaggleAMP: The ‘secret weapon of online influence’ — here’s the little bit about me:
Chris Abraham: 663 Gaggle members & growing
Two of my good friends and colleagues, social media marketing wiz Chris Abraham and digital communication legend Shel Holtz, turned me on to GaggleAMP some time ago. So I asked them how they use the service.
Chris Abraham: “As a reward for joining, I provide a constant stream of curated social media content.”
Said Chris: “GaggleAMP is my secret weapon when it comes to my influence online. In short, I manage a public Gaggle. Anyone can join and opt in. As a reward for joining, I provide a constant stream of curated social media content that each member of my Gaggle can Auto-Share for Twitter.
“I can share content to Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Google+. Anything posted to be shared with LinkedIn, Facebook, and Google+ will be held in a moderation queue until my members approve each post. In the case of my Gaggle, around 60 accounts are set up with Auto-Share which means that I can bank on around 60 guaranteed shares and retweets on Twitter.
“I currently have 663 members in my Chris Abraham Gaggle. That means that of those members, a number of them automagically pass through each and every Twitter and LinkedIn posts to their social media streams while the remaining members are given the option to posts my content based on how well each suggested Twitter, Linkedin, Facebook, and Google+ content fits them.
“There’s a tremendous power associated with sharing something via GaggleAMP. The service is smart, it doesn’t send out everything all at once, it distributes the content organically over time. That said, it’s a powerful tool that can really kick-start a content marketing campaign.”
Chris wrote about his effective use of GaggleAMP in this post last summer on Socialmedia.biz.
