How to make someone share your blog posts?
“Love only grows by sharing. You can only have more for yourself by giving it away to others.”
― Brian Tracy
Find and solve your audience problems:
This is the first thing to make your blog posts going viral. If you want to readers to share your blog contents, then write the blog posts which will solve their problems. Know your targeted audience before writing a single post on your blog. Find out what they want and take some time to research about those topics and create engaging contents.
Share others contents:
Don’t be selfish. You don’t get anything when you are focused only on what you want. You should be sharing and promoting others stuff on your network. Don’t ask others to share your blog posts without actually sharing their posts with your readers. There’s no need to specifically ask other blogger’s to promote your contents when you share their stuff regularly. Sharing and promoting other bloggers content can also help you build strong relationships over time.
Ask your readers to share:
If you have great content, offers and value in your products you can ask your readers to share with others. But remember that your readers will share your contents or stuff only when they get some benefits from them. No one will be interested in reading your stuff when you don’t add any value to your posts or products. You have to be something different and adding value to your posts no matter what to make your blog posts sharable.
Give enough sharing options:
Most bloggers, especially the new bloggers make a mistake of using too many sharing buttons on their blogs. Give enough options to make your blog posts sharable and engaging.
Be active on Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus:
Social media marketing is going viral, you simply can’t solely depend upon Google to bring traffic to your blog posts. In this penguin and panda world, you need to work hard to get more attention on social media sites. There are so many bloggers using social media sites like Facebook, twitter and Google Plus to promote their posts and to engage with their readers to create a great bond in the long run.
Always use attention grabbing headlines:
Headlines are what makes your readers to click on your posts. If you want to make your blog posts going viral on social media sites, write exceptionally great headlines. Spend time to craft the catchy headlines on your blog posts to grab your readers attention.
Make your posts scannable:
Most online readers skim through the contents, they don’t spend much time on reading word to word on any given blog. So try to make your blog posts easy to read by using lots of bullet points, bold word and sub heads. Don’t excessively over link your own posts or others posts. Don’t keyword stuff your posts just to get search engine traffic for few potential keywords. No one can easily understand what you are saying when your posts are embedded with the same keywords again and again. Give top priority to your readers first.
Use appealing images:
If you want to quickly grab your readers attention, appealing images can do it for you. Make use of images on each and every blog posts that you write and give the proper credits to the images to get rid of infringement and/or copyright issues. Most new bloggers simply use Google images on their blog posts, you will face problems in future if you don’t give proper credit to the images. Use the sites like Free Digital Photos.net to download appealing images, give a link back to the site.
Use plugins at appropriate places so that visitors can share with ease. I personally use Really simple Facebook Twitter share buttons plugin created by whiletrue.
