A blogger always tries creating riveting content so that a thousand shares are received that drives more traffic to their business. When website visitors share out your content you get numerous links to your site because it gets more popularized among people. This is a big aim for many businesses who want to build their brand, extend their reach and make the best out of their various online marketing efforts. You must be wondering how to reach the peak of likes and shares of all the people there. So, in order to be in the limelight of your internet fans here are some tips that will help you to get many social shares.
SPREAD THE WORD OF SHARING YOUR CONTENT:
The first step you can take to make your blog post go popular among internet users is by asking people to share your content. The more shares you ask for it becomes obvious that you need help and people might get ready to help you. For example some sites have a pop up in them that says: “If you liked this post click the subscribe button below or share it on Facebook.”
CREATE ENGAGING CONTENT
People are always on the lookout for content that captures their every bit of interest and is informative too at the same time. Great content gets shared that flows as if one is making a candid conversation with that blog reader. The content should also be unique and you should make great insights too.
TRY CREATING A BUZZ FOR YOUR BLOGS
For better likes and shares for your blogs, promote it in a highly shareable and compulsive way. This will prompt your fans to share your blog numerously in the internet. Add excitement to it by using a creative marketing hook, making use of teasers and sneak peeks and by offering freebees.
WRITE A SUPER ENGAGING HEADLINE
Write enticing headlines for your blogs to have more social shares for it. The headline should have an appeal to your target audience, creates mystery and relates to current events too. The headline should manipulate the natural curiosity of the internet audience trying to be more beguiling for a great number of social shares. One can also engage in a headline that announces exciting news and appeals to the reader’s hunger for knowledge.
INSTALL SOCIAL SHARING BUTTONS
To make social sharing convenient for your blog readers, engage in bright, colorful social sharing buttons that are more likely to be clicked just like the ease provided in certain download buttons on landing pages. Sites like AddThis and ShareThis make it easy for the availability of slick social share buttons that also offer a considerable amount of detailed customization.
PICTURE IT ON PINTEREST
Pinterest also offers great traffic building opportunity over the internet. If you photograph the products or services of your blog beautifully and have great ideas or inspiration to share, do so in a Pinterest account. Here you can pin your images and re-pin other related ideas too. Your unique ideas in your blogs will get shared via re-pinning or sharing further on Facebook and Twitter.
MAKE THE SOCIAL SHARING BUTTONS LOOK PROMINENT ON YOUR BLOG
The correct placement of the social sharing buttons at the top of your blog can work as a social proof for the visitors who will read your blog. There is also the floating buttons option which allows the social buttons to be present in your blog but is quite an annoying thing for some.
INCREASE THE TIME ON SITE BY INTERLINKING YOUR POST
The more time spent by the target audience on your blog the better for you. When this happens you will see your blog getting many comments, and shares too. Good content will always help for better SEO and increases the perceived value of the content too. Also, within the body of your blog, provide links to the past blogs that you have written and include relevant content too. Another tip is to write blog post series where each blog will be a guide to achieve an overarching goal. Your readers will get so engaged in your reading that they will click on link after link to go deeper into your blogs.
INTEGRATE A CONTENT UPGRADE
Have a content upgrade in your blogs by having an email list that will be full of people of your target audience. Have this content upgrade in the form of a worksheet, checklist, table or even a spreadsheet. This creation of content upgrade will help you to promote your new blog post and will increase the ’know, like and trust factor’ of your target audience towards you.
POST WHEN YOUR AUDIENCE IS MOST ACTIVE
It is said that the best time for posting content is either mid morning or mid afternoon on weekdays. This will help your blog to receive optimal sharing and likes too. But it is best to judge the time of posting by targeting your key audience. For example, if your blog is for students, the best time for posting would be the afternoon time or the weekends. Judge this time wisely to get maximum shares in your blog posts.
OFFER A PROPER FORMAT TO YOUR CONTENT
Some users of your blog will either be finicky and flighty or will not even finish reading an article before sharing it. This is the reason why one should break up the writing into paragraphs, use subheadings, add bullet points, take help of bold text and implement images for an engrossing read.
CONCLUDE YOUR BLOG BY INVITING AN ACTION FROM THE READERS
After a target audience finishes reading your blog, the next question that should come naturally to them is “what next”? This is when you should explicitly state your target audience to take action so that they get their desired results as soon as possible. This will ensue that your content is viewed by the target audience as something valuable and that fits their specific needs too. sAlso ask your readers to add their comments or to come back and share their ideas once they have achieved their results after reading your blog.
These steps will help every blogger to streamline their blogs post creation process and make the content go viral to get innumerable posts and shares.
