Are you struggling to get others to share your post on social media sites? Do you need to grow a large following to promote your business too? Learn how to create posts that will get you more exposure with shares, comments, likes, re-tweets, and more by simply following a few tips.
First thing to know, is not to be a spammer. Many new marketers don’t realize how much they turn others away by spamming.
This is why I will describe a social media post in either of two terms:
1. Active Posts
2. Passive Posts
Active posts are the types in which you create curiosity among the readers. This is simply where you have them curious as to what you are posting about. It will get a much higher amount of views and clicks, than a passive post.
Passive posts are where you basically spam your readers. You create ressistance and the reader just keeps scrolling down to something they want to see. Big mistake by so many marketers is trying to “Hype” their products and opportunities.
Always be sure to use social posts, or tweets, that will create a curiosity among your readers. This is the first steps in gaining more engagement to your posts.
Here are just a few other tips to help with engagement:
- Ask a question. Asking questions is a great way to capture a target audience. Ask a question that would be directed towards your customer in mind. This works well most of the time
- Engage with others. By sharing others content and commenting on others material, this will help increase your engagement as well. If you aren’t sharing, re-tweeting, liking, and commenting on someone else’s material, they more than likely will not do it with yours. It’s called “Social Media” for a reason, so get social.
- Another tip to always keep in mind, is to be sure when you are posting, you are not posting what it is you want you readers to do. Instead, post something that you know they will want, and it is special to them. This can help you a lot in more than just social media, and should be considered in all your content as well.
