Producing and Spreading Shareable Content on Social Media (Infographic)

Creating regular content is great, but you should always remember to make it shareable in the sense that people will want to spread it.

Read on for some simple ways you can make your content more share-friendly and therefore more optimized for social media.

Before starting a blog, these are the things you should know about crafting shareable content:

  • Create share buttons with counts to show how many others shared it. This appeals to our sense of social validation
  • Positive content gets shared more than negative or sad news. Try to stay positive in your content.
  • Answer a commonly asked question and provide a takeaway for readers. This will encourage them to share.

When you start from the beginning with the focus on creating content that people want to share, you set yourself up for success.

  • Hi David,

    I like all the facts and quick stats on social sharing… frankly, I’ve found that every audience is a little different. And every platform and audience requires testing and responds a little differently.

    But these are a great place to start, and I especially love the portion on irresistible headlines.

    Nice!

      Totally agree – you have to test what works for your audience on each platform.
      If you love the portion on headlines then you’re going to be drooling over next week’s post. It contains everything you need to know about crafting, analyzing and testing your headlines!

      Stay Tuned!
