How to Get Your Blog Shared On Facebook and Twitter

Every blog writer knows how difficult it can be to get your blog noticed. There is nothing worse than writing a witty and informative blog and having no one read it or share it among their friends. To help your blog receive all the attention that it needs to survive among the millions of others on the internet we are going to offer you some helpful tips that will help your blog get read and shared on Facebook and Twitter.

The primary reason that blogs exist is to draw attention to a specific cause, product or company. Many businesses have discovered that featuring a blog on their website provides them with the opportunity to give their business a more personal touch while sharing information about their business or products. But with so many blogs out there it is hard to ensure that each one gets read by the targeted audience. The following steps will help ensure that your blog gets read and shared.
  • Choose Your Title Carefully - You may think that coming up with a witty title is a good idea, but people tend to decide within three seconds if they are going to continue reading or not. Choose a title that will draw your reader in and make them want to read more.
  • Write Quality Content - In order for your readers to believe that you are an expert in your particular field you should write content that shows you have an understanding of how your products or services can improve their lives. Writing a blog is different than writing an article; remember that you have a limited amount of space to get your point across.
  • Take Advantage of Other Social Media Outlets - Simply publishing your blog isn't enough. If you would like to reach a larger audience Tweeting about your latest blog entry is an excellent way to drive traffic to your blog. You may also want to place a Tweet or Share button on your blog making it easier for readers to share your information.
  • Post Blogs Regularly - Creating a successful blog can take a lot of effort on your part. To keep people coming back for more it is important that you regularly publish new material. This can be done by either writing new blogs or taking advantage of posting video blogs. Offering your readers a variety of ways to view your content is key to keeping them interested.
  • Don't Be Shy - Commenting on other blogs is a great way to get your business noticed and encourage other bloggers to visit and comment on your own blog.
A blog is an excellent marketing tool to promote your company, but only when it is done the right way. If you follow some of these suggestions you will more than likely notice an improvement in the amount of readers and shares that your blogs receives every month.
