Working with digital marketing strategy, and developing an inbound strategy, I’ve asked our marketers to put together a list of the best places for publishing content. Obviously, writing and publishing posts or articles via a Medium based blog isn’t nearly enough. It’s just one place people might discover your content.
I have asked Marketers to research social media groups and other places where our chatbot related content could be published. We investigated and gathered the top places you could share your content, from the mainstream to the narrow niche.
We don’t claim that it is the only, comprehensive list of useful sources, but it’s one that really works.
How did marketers selected sources?
- number of followers/visitors (from 1k)
- the target audience should be related to Business, Tech industries
- active post publishing (from 2 per week)
Marketers selected groups in the following order.
- LinkedIn — a place for professional networking allows for finding the right source and audience.
- Facebook — an unspecialised platform with a wide range of dissemination of information. Acts like a word of mouth.
- Telegram — fast-growing source to publish content that can be read at breakfast.
Others — resources that have good indexing by Google. There are easy ways to show expertise and readiness to interact with the audience.

Why did I exclude a few groups?
Looking through the list I asked the marketer to exclude a few groups that, at first glance, seem relevant to publishing content. I divided the excluded groups into a few sections:
Niche groups. There are gathered technical professionals that couldn’t be interested in marketing promotion. They’re looking for the latest technology news and innovations. It could be unclear for a wider audience that may be involved in non-tech industries. For example, Informational Technology Professionals, Agile Scrum Lean DevOps, AI Blockchain FinTech Microservices or Data Mining / Machine Learning / Artificial Intelligence.
Training and General business groups. It could be paid courses, training, webinars for developers, managers, entrepreneurs and others who are involved in the related industry. For example, Small Business Accelerator or IT & Business.
