When you write a blog post and hit publish there is such a good feeling behind it. The worst feeling is the crickets that come when you don’t get much or any traffic, interactions, or comments. So today let’s talk about ways to get your posts shared.
Ways To Get Your Posts Shared
Share In Groups: I am a part of A TON of blogger related groups. I personally love them for a few reasons. One, it helps you find a ton of new blogs to follow. Most of the blogs I read daily I would have never found otherwise. Two, it gives you an opportunity to share YOUR posts and social media with audiences that may not have seen them otherwise. Lastly, it gives you a chance to connect with others. There are so many threads in groups to leave your posts for the day, leave social media links, etc. The great part is you share and comment on what fits with you and vise versa. These are GREAT ways to get your posts shared and get traffic to your blog. Go on Facebook and search blogging and you will find tons of groups! Also search locally for example Texas Bloggers. I promise by joining and participating in these groups you will see your posts shared so much more.
Rock The Social Media Game: Do you share your own posts? Daily? Even when you don’t have something new? If you are working social media right you are always posting. You are pinning, you are recycling pins (I use Boardbooster), you are tweeting out old posts, you are posting on your Facebook page, etc. If you are utilizing social media to it’s fullest to promote your own blog you are going to get your posts shared!
Share The Love: Going along with sharing your own posts all the time you SHOULD be sharing things from other bloggers. Bloggers both in your niche and in other niches. I use Pinterest and Twitter the most for this but something as simple as Retweeting a post from a blogger or sharing the love on Facebook makes them feel so good. In return they will probably share things of yours. The more you share the love the more the love gets shared right back. Don’t be social media selfish.
I hope you found these ways to get your posts shared helpful and that it gives you a new perspective.
