Are you looking to get more engagement on your posts and potential viewers to your site? Social share links can be a great way to do just that!
What’s a social share link?
Social share links are buttons on your posts that make it easy for your audience to share your post to their social media accounts. For instance, if you publish an article and you have a social share link to Facebook, they are able to share your post to their Facebook account which allows other people to share it and so forth.
Why is this helpful?
Having these links can be helpful because it can give your posts more exposure to people that aren’t already viewing your site and in turn, draw more traffic to it and potentially create new clients. You’re already putting a lot of work in coming up with content, writing that content, and posting it and it deserves to be shared and seen! With social share links, this becomes super easy.
What social share links can I have?
You can have social share links that branch out to a few different social media accounts! For example, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Email to name a few. With these buttons, the viewer can share to their social media or even email it to a friend!
Can I have social share links on more than just posts?
Absolutely! You can have social share links on anything that is relevant to your audience. We typically do them on events, that way your event can easily be shared on social media in hopes of peaking people’s interest and increasing turn out! They can also be used on pages too. Basically, anything that is its own separate page/post on the site can have social share links on them.
