Most people believe that it’s easy and then wonder why it isn’t working in their business.  Quite often it’s not.   If  you think it’s as simple as writing up something quickly, then uploading it to a social media app from your smartphone, then your process is wrong and the lack of leads you’re getting from it likely reflect that fact.

Instead, social media marketing requires a lot of skill within  marketing strategy and creative ideas and concepts and how they come together.  It’s a bit like juggling, not just a group of balls, but balls, flaming torches, and kittens, how do you balance all the components.  The job of a social media marketer does not end with creation, post, , and deployment.  It starts with a plan.   Plan your work, then work your plan.  Create a social media strategy that converts is social media promotion.

How can I increase my social shares?

Sometimes getting shares is as simple listening to what people are talking about on various channels and what they need, then engaging accordingly.   Don’t just post and run.  Here’s a step by step example that illustrates the mechanics and clockwork agenda of getting more shares :

Listen and engage.

  1. You wrote an article.
  2. Through using Twitter Advanced Search you found that XYZ user also wrote an article on the same topic and shared it on his account.
  3. You then share XYZ user’s post first (give before you ask for something in return). You later engage the user and say  something chatty and friendly like “Hey, I noticed that you wrote and shared an article on the same topic I recently wrote an article about, would you mind RTing my article? ”  We’ve tried this strategy and 9 times out of 10 it works!   It gives credibility to both parties.

You could also use this same strategy on other social media channels. It tends to be a little harder on Facebook since some personal pages are private, but it is possible.

The really great element about this strategy, is that it also helps you build robust relationships with other users who have similar interests. Strengthen that relationship with them moving forward with other ideas and articles– each relationship could turn into a partnership of sharing each other’s content.

Utilize social media advertising.

The first two options we discussed were free (with the exception of how much your time coss). This next way to get shares for your social media marketing requires a small budget.

Oftentimes for as little as $5 a day you could run a Facebook Promoted Post, Twitter Promoted Campaign, or Linkedin Sponsored Story – guaranteed to get your social media marketing more reach. If your content is good enough, it will naturally get more shares.

Check out a case study I did here on how much just $10 helped this client on Pinterest!!!

Be sure to also include calls to action in your content that notes “Share this post,” or “Like what you see? Click to share.”

Let’s face it part of business is getting more shares from your social media and optimizing your brand awareness.
