Have you recently visited a site that has many followers to it ? Here are simple tips on how to get more social media shares for your posts.
You may have noticed the social buttons on a specific article have large numbers indicating how many times it was shared to social media.
It’s because they have built up their fan base and they now have the luxury of having many social media shares automatically because of that.
You may not have that many followers yet, but with some hard work and smart thinking, you can have many more social media shares than you’re getting now as well as get more followers on Twitter.
Following the suggestions from this article, you will see these kinds of results I have for Internet Dreams:
I may not promise the same results for you, but if you put the work in, you may never know!
You might just get high numbers on those social media buttons.
You are going to need visitors to come to your website and use your sharing buttons to share your content onto their social profiles.
In today’s blogging, many of those people are going to be small connections you have created over the course of time you blogged.
With the competition rising in the blog world, connections are even more important than ever.
Everywhere you are, try to create connections just by having a chat once, and share some of their own content.
At the same time, always recommend them to get your free eBook if you have created one.
Also while you’re at it, exchange follows on social media so both of you can stay in touch for the future.
Join a Social Sharing Group
Social media is an excellent medium to create groups based on the same interest.
Grab a few other interested individuals that are looking to get more social shares on their articles and form a social sharing group.
Use Facebook groups as the place to converse and organize who is sharing what, each day.
Each day should be assigned to an individual and have the others share his piece of content to their social media profiles.
Social sharing groups are going to get you more social shares as soon as your appointed day of sharing, arrives.
As a bonus, you will be receiving traffic from almost every share that happens.
Encourage sharing using “please share actions”
As a visitor comes to an article, most of time they will have a short read and move on to another site.
This is something we can’t control and the only thing we can do is influence his stay.
Call to actions help influence your visitors to take action.
This action might encourage him to comment or share your article to his social media profiles.
Many times you will add it to the end of the article even though that is absolutely fine to do.
But the most effective call to actions happen within the content called “please share actions”.
Visit Internet Dream’s latest articles and you will see them within the articles, all over the place.
Add a couple of those to the body of your article.
While reading, this is a constant reminder to the visitor for him to share onto social media!
Remember when I said that connections are more important in today’s blogging?
Yes, they really are and bloggers need to get together to form alliances that will benefit everyone in the group.
This is where Triberr is the perfect solution.
Triberr is a community where “like-minded” bloggers are coming together to form tribes.
You join a tribe and all the members of it have to pitch in and share the member’s content.
Similar to the social sharing group from above, Triberr displays each member’s content automatically in your stream where it is easy to share from there.
Plus tribes are much larger than the social sharing groups I told you to create, as well as in addition.
Share for others
You know how it goes?
If you want something done to you, you first need to do it to others.
It’s one of life’s golden rules and it applies to getting social media shares, perfectly.
If you share all the time the content you see around you, you will gain the attention of those around you as you do so.
After some time of consistent sharing, those around you will start sharing your content for you, thus increasing the amount of social media shares your articles are getting.
