Congratulations. You've opened your editor and written a BLOG (if you need some guidance on writing a BLOG post refer to "Better Blogging Tips and Tricks").
Once you publish those words of wisdom... what next? Why write at all if you aren't taking advantage of free social media?
Once you hit that Publish Button, your BLOG posts just sit idle, awaiting an audience. Chances are if you have a new website, you don't have an audience yet. Here is exactly how to build an audience and get folks sharing your posts:
After you hit PUBLISH, your post is Live on the web. You need to open your site ( not the editor) and go to your Blog page. There you should see your post in all its glory. Hello post! You could stop here and just hit the Twitter and Facebook Links... but that is NOT enough. (hit Twitter anyway!)
Go to your live site in another tab. Now "click" on the headline of your post. Look to your navigation bar. You should see the address of your post written something like this: http://www."YOUR SITE".com/1/post/2014/05/post-title.html". Copy that address ( now a link)!
Now - open Facebook. Open "update status". Paste that link right there.
Watch as FB loads your direct link to THAT post. Do you see it there? Now delete the link in the status bar. Your post should still be visible.
Write something pithy above your post. "Great Fathers Day ideas", etc.
Are you on a Places Page or a Business Page? Make sure to start the sharing by "liking" your post as yourself. i.e. Julene Hunter likes a Post on J HilburnNV page.
Now repeat in Pintrest, Google+, or wherever you share... maybe even a group page?
