A snippet of each of our blog posts goes out to twitter and posts to facebook. Lots of people follow on twitter (we don't follow back) and lots are fans on facebook. We make four to ten blog posts per day. This activity brings in hundreds of visitors per day to our blog with twitter and facebook as the referrer. We do nothing else to cultivate these followings.
We also have buttons for twitter, facebook and other social sites on every page of our website and according to addthis.com those generate 300 to 500 shares per day.
Do we depend on this? Absolutely not. We are doing a least effort approach to that allows people who want the information to receive it automatically.
