By making a few adjustments and concentrating on the way you create, publish and engage with your audience will increase the chance for your content to get shared by your followers.
In this article, I will be talking about how exactly you can maximize your social media shares just by changing some small habits which you might be already doing it but failing at the end.
So, let’s get started
1. Know What Are The Trending Topics In Your Niche
Did you ever think how many audiences you could have got for your website if you had just written something about the trending topic and posted on social media?
Having a better knowledge of what is going on in the world under your niche and sharing the content about it can increase the chances of getting shared.
There are plenty of tools out there which can help you in that.
These sites can help you to research about the contents and topics that are in trending in your niche on social media.
Identify the popular topic and then write about it, people will definitely find your content at that moment and will share it.
2. Use Social Media Plugins On Your Blog
Ya, this sounds silly.
But guys I have seen many blogs who doesn’t have a social media page icon or social share icons or both.
This is another call-to-action strategy. Your audience will more likely share your contents when you show them.
Sometimes some things get so used to it, that we just overlook them. That idea just skips through our mind.
By reminding your audience that they can share your content on their social media will jog off their memory and will make them share it on their account.
You can also use Better ClickToTweet to write a text in a textbox and embed it inside your content so that your readers can tweet that text instantly to their Twitter page.
Make sure you add a link back to your blog for more effective result.
3. Create Compelling Headlines

“How to Increase Your Social Media Shares”
Which headline do you think you will click instantly if you see?
You will definitely click the first one, right?
What Bloggers fail to understand is that the headline of an article is much more important than the body.
You must have an appealing headline which will drive people to come to your blog.
If you want to get your content shared, start thinking about headlines.
4. Create Visual Interest
No one wants to see one or two liner text content on your page.
Use photos, videos and infographics for your social media post to make it more mouthwatering.
They are very easy to design with lots of premade eye catchy templates ready for you so that you don’t need to struggle while creating an awesome photo.
5. Post During Peak Hours
Want to get best results on social media, go to Analytics and check out at what time of the day your followers are mostly online or active.
Posting at those hours will help you reach out more followers and increases the chance to get shared by them.
Remember that there is no universal peak time for posting a social media post. Every page is different and has their own peak timings.
Depending on your social media platform, region, age and gender, you need to experiment with your page.
Find out what is the best time for your content and at what time your followers come online and then post it accordingly.
To score on social media, you need a little bit of patience.
Changing some of your strategies will definitely rock your social media page.
So, start doing it right now.
