When you take time to share content online, you want it to be seen. Here are five no-fail techniques that need to be part of your content sharing strategy in 2015:
- Post regularly
Get people hooked in your content by creating original content regularly. Make your posts useful, insightful, and worth reading.
2. Accept guest posts
Give your readers access to a roster of experts. Guest writers can offer a different perspective. Most guest authors will share their content with their audience as well, which generates new traffic and attracts new readers for you.
Write with keywords. You want to be on the first page of Google search results. Optimize your content with relevant keywords, especially in the title, subheads, and link text. Also include links. Work a related post into the text of your article and link to it. Encourage related site to link to your content.
4. Edit and proofread before you publish
Proofread and edit your content before publishing it. You can correct errors after the fact, but you can’t take back the reads that occur before you do so.
5. Use social media
Use social media channels to publicize your content. Post links on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, Instagram, and your other platforms — making sure to use best practices for each.
