You are writing good posts for your blogs , but nobody is sharing it . As SEO takes time to show results , so social media sharing is the first thing your blog needs . But what if nobody is sharing it ?
Three reasons you are not getting social shares
Hello everyone this is Arpit Rana from learnsomebusiness.com and today I am going to tell you the main three reasons that why nobody is sharing your blogpost .
First of all , see how my posts are perfoming in social media .
Okay , if these posts which are not more than a week old are getting this much shares then what is the thing that I do that people want to share my post .
Reasons you are not getting social shares
Now , the three reasons can be –
- No sharing buttons
- Wrong or no advertising
- Not having good content
No social sharing buttons –
You can see at the end of my every post , I use sharing buttons but why ? People can also share your post by directly copy pasting your link .
But , why you are expecting that someone will copy paste your link and do that sharing for you . If you can’t even put sharing buttons in your blog . If something is harder and not important for people , why would they do that . But if something is easier , people would may do that . So , by just adding social media sharing buttons things can greatly change for you .
The social media buttons is okay , but which social media buttons you should use ?
See , this is much dependent on your target country . If your target country is India , see which social media Indians use mostly . If your target country is China , see which social media Chinese use .
As, my target country is India and USA most of shares I get from these nations only .
Wrong or no advertising –
See you may be creating the best content on entire web , but more importantly if nobody knows about your content nobody is going to read it . Yes, you need to advertise your content a bit and even it is free to advertise if you follow my tricks .
To make a content shareable first people should know that your content exists . I have shared the best tricks on web to promote your content here in this blog and totally free .
Okay , but what if you are advertising in wrong space . I mean you can’t advertise your ebook in youtube as good as you can advertise it in linkedin or facebook .
So , the point here is that you should know that where you are advertising your stuff . It should be advertised in right place. I covered all this in the post link I shared .
Not having good content –
I am not saying you are not writing anything good but I am saying that you may be not writing what readers wants to read or may be your writing style is not as appealing as it should be . See , in schools when we complete our first class we are moved to second one . Second one has something new in it . If we are always taught old stuff , do you like that ? In same way if you are just writing the same content that has been already explained a tons of time on web , people will never share it unless you add something new to it . So , the answer here is that you should add something new to your content .
Apart from it , your reader should enjoy your content . Try to write in such a form that makes people feel like you are talking to them . Your content will be shared only and only if readers are enjoying it .
Bonus mistake –
What if I start to write my blogs in very difficult english and you need to search for words again and again on google to know what is the meaning of this word and what is the meaning of that word ? Will you read my blog then ? Will you share my post then ?
That’s the point , in business people should understand what you are trying to sell . If it is very complex to understand nobody will like it . We all want something which is simple . So , try to write with such words that anybody can easily understand .
The more simple it is , bigger group of people will like it .
That’s all ! Feel free to share your views in comments and if you know more mistakes feel free to tell in comments . Please share the post if you like it , spread the knowledge .
