Love finding someone else saying what I say to my clients:
After you publish your post you need to share on all of your networks yourself to kick start the promotion of that piece. So each share button on your site should have at least a 1 right off the bat. I see so many zeros out there and I shake my head. You’ve likely spent a couple of hours creating your post, hopefully did some basic SEO, put in some photos, and spend no time on promoting your work. That’s a huge mistake.
What a golden point!
How many of us click publish and go on our merry way without taking time to share our own content right away in as many places as possible?
I think it boils down to not wanting to be ‘self promotional’ – but that’s a hang up we have to shake off. If you’ve written something you’re proud of – share it proudly!
(And I would add – come back and share it again the next day LOL!)
