Do you want your posts shared by big bloggers?
Getting a share on Facebook from the page of a big blog, can be HUGE for traffic!
But how do you get the bigger pages to share your content? Some pages allow you to post your content to their walls every day! Some pages and bloggers consider this spamming, but others welcome it and even ask bloggers to share on their walls. I don’t share unless I’m sure the page owner has put their wall open for sharing! I’ve compiled a list of pages that allow sharing, each of the pages on my list have over 7,000 followers!
But let’s get to work on how to make your posts stand out to the big pages!
- Images – You need a solid, crisp image! Text-only posts don’t do nearly as well on Facebook, so you might notice that a lot of the bigger pages RARELY if ever post a link with no image. Make sure yours are stellar.
- Square photos – This isn’t a deal breaker, but square photos do best on Facebook, so sharing something square is definitely a step in the right direction.
- Niche – Make sure you are sharing posts that fall within the niche of the blog where you are sharing. They are looking for content that is relevant to their readers, so keep that in mind when considering what post to share where.
- Study up! – Take some time and scroll through the page’s feed, get a feel for the type of posts and images they share, and leave similar links from your own blog. If you are familiar with what they like, you are more likely to be able to share something that they will deem share-worthy.
- Share from your page – log in to facebook from your page when you are leaving images and links on other pages. This way what you post will be shown to more people. Even if the big page doesn’t re-share from you, lots of people will see what you posted and you can still get some good clicks out of it!
Remember not to get discouraged if pages don’t share from you…just use it as a chance to improve, as you look at what is working for others. Maybe your images need some sprucing up, or you need to work on creating more engaging content. If you use it as an example to figure out what does well and what doesn’t, it can be a great growing opportunity, even when you don’t get shared!
