Tackk for bloggers

The ins and outs of using Tackk alongside your blog.

What comes to mind when you think of a modern laptop? Probably not a portrait of typewriters or word processing. As creative writing has evolved over time, so too has blogging.

Many blogs these days are as much about establishing a community as they are about spreading a message. We'd like to help you learn how you can use Tackk to get your community more engaged:

1. Get feedback from your readers.

  • Ask them to create Tackks in response to your blog posts;
  • Use a Tackk to gather feedback on a topic — give them a more powerful, more sharable platform than anonymous, text-only comments. Let readers' responses light your content on fire!

2. Use Tackkboards to collect community content.

  • Invite content events, content submissions, pitches or press releases onto a community bulletin board under a selected tag.
  • Run contests, inviting readers to build your body of content... and win rad prizes too!
  • Spark discussion over a recent blog post. Learn how to create Tackkboards to funnel the conversation into one spot, like the #UnmiserableCLE board

3. Organize a meet-up!
Taking action can be an excellent way to get your readers involved. Like starting a monthly breakfast club!

4. Tell a side story.
It may be related to your site's content or it could be a one-off, off-topic rant about something that doesn't belong on your topical site. But it can link back to it!

5. Embed Tackks in your blog.
You can still drive traffic to your blog, even if you're Tackking. Learn how to embed Tackk in your blog.

6. Sell something.
For-sale flyers probably don't fit into your editorial scheme. So, Tackk it up! You can create for-sale flyers for whatever you have on the block. Then you can share it on your blog (see embedding, above) and across all your social networks.

7. Use Tackk to write blog drafts or notes.
Tackk is always at your side with easy mobile access. Consider live-Tackking your next event or using Tackk as your on-the-go ideas board.
