Do you want more exposure for your website content through social shares? Does your site make it easy for readers to share on social media? In order to be sure you say yes to those two questions, let’s take a look at the tips below…
1 Images: Visuals are driving more results for brands than ever, so it is important that your images are appealing and shareable on all social networks. Keep in mind that images that look great on a web page won’t necessarily look good in a social post. To evaluate images, create a social post and add the URL of the page you’re evaluating. You can quickly see if there are any issues with the cropping, sizing, or formatting. If your images are cut off or appear far away, then you may need to revisit your image sizes. Square images typically look clean across all social networks.
2 Share Buttons: You want to make your content easy for people to share on their social networks. Major blogs excel at this, so let’s take a look at two particular platform examples, Pinterest and Twitter… It is a good idea to get the Pin It button from Pinterest because it lives on top of the images on your site, instead of just along the side or top of your regular content. Then, Twitter is especially customizable when it comes to share buttons (aka Tweet) because it can be added to every post that is shared directly.
