Mix is the replacement for the popular platform StumbleUpon which sadly closed down last year. It’s a social media platform that encourages you to discover interesting articles across the web.
It’s also an opportunity for driving traffic to a new blog and I’m trying it out on my new lifestyle blog Love Life Be Fit
What Is Mix?
Mix was created by the owners of StumbleUpon and has now replaced the much loved former platform. The jury is still out over how useful Mix will be as a source of traffic.
Mix can be used as a research tool to explore articles in your niche, as a networking tool or to share content with your target audience.
How Useful Is Mix
At the moment it’s hard to tell. The site is really easy to use. Once you’ve set up your profile, all you have to do is post the url to add a post and Mix does all the work for you.
Unlike Medium, where you’re adding your content to the platform, Mix is a direct link to your site which should make it better for traffic.
I’ve been using Mix for around 3 months with the Simply Hatch blog. I get a big boost of traffic when I post but at the moment visits to my site quickly fizzle out.
Mix is really easy to use. Whether it’s going to be a good source of traffic time will tell. I think it’s worthwhile just because it only takes a few minutes to add your posts to the Mix!
I’m up to 18 posts now on my new blog. Read all about why I’ve started a new lifestyle blog…
