Forgetting to like or share your posts, well, that’s one of the hugest issues I see people do. I’m not sure if you’ve been watching the Field of Dreams movie too much, but “if you build it, the will come,” isn’t exactly true in the online world today. People are busy. If you never like and share your posts, they are only going to see your website if they search for you.
And this is just putting your marketing strategy on hope. I’ve come to love Chris Lema’s quote “Hope is NOT a strategy.” You really can’t just publish a post, rely on optimizing it, and just hope someone will share it, or hope someone will stumble on it through Google or some other search engine.
To like and share your posts, it probably seems either really tedious, or for some of you, you feel like you’re spamming people. Well, unless your content is crap, and/or you’re sharing in the wrong places, your blog posts aren’t spam.
Like and Share your Posts – It’s Free
People make social media marketing tougher than it really is. For the beginner blogger, learning where to share, and how to share is important.
For example, knowing your niche and how you can properly use hashtags or keywords are extremely important. There are people who really look for specific topics on most social networks like Facebeook, Twitter, and Google+.
Aside from linking and sharing your own posts, you should be linking and sharing other people’s posts in your niche. This builds your trust and authority amongst others, by saying “because so and so, who is trusted in this niche says so, I agree with them, and recommend you to check out what they’re saying.”
The rule of thumbs has been that you should be at least sharing 80 percent content made by others, and then 20 percent that is your own. This balance allows you to be less seen as a spammer, and for your content to be more welcomed by your followers.
You certainly could invest in advertisements for your website, but the cheapest method of advertising is to like and share your posts. Wait… cheap… I mean free. 😉
Like AND Share My Posts?
Yes! Like and share your posts. In Facebook, when you like and share your posts, the like bumps your posts into your Facebook stream.
Of course, some of your closest friends may like and share whatever blog post you only shared, however, everyone, especially if the post is set to a public status, it has more potential to being seen by more people.
Don’t Forget to Like and Share Your Posts
