Do You Want More Social Shares?
Do you wonder how some bloggers get so many more social shares on their posts? I noticed some posts lately reaching into the thousands of shares.
Do you wish you could have more social shares on your own blog posts?
I asked a few bloggers who get a lot more social shares than average on their posts how often they share their own.
If you have read my blog for years you know how I love the 80/20 rule. I share 80% of others’ posts and 20% or less of my own.
The numbers below from these bloggers may surprise you!Do you wish you could have more social shares on your own blog posts? #bloggingtips Click To Tweet
What Others Have to Say About More Social Shares from Their Blogs

A Few More Share
I don’t have a set amount for Twitter, but I’d probably say on average: Twitter – 5. Facebook – 1. Google+ 1.
These figures only include my personal accounts. I do have branded accounts but it’s difficult to give an average on those. That’s in total for my personal accounts. Over a period of 1 day to 45 days. For popular posts, I’ll go back and schedule additional shares although that number varies.
I have a social media manager who posts my articles out on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and LinkedIn approximately 5 times a week. The following week that most current post is only promoted maybe 3-4 times on these. The following week it is promoted 2-3 times and onward. She does this so the older posts are continuing to be promoted.
I also use Triberr to help my work in being promoted. My social media manager uses Hootsuite to schedule all the posts she promotes.

I do share my posts on Twitter and Facebook but only once per post as in to notify the new post 🙂 I used to share away old content on my personal Twitter profile, but not anymore.
Mostly readers/visitors promote my content.

More Social Shares – Are You Surprised by the Numbers?
Are you surprised these seasoned bloggers are mostly sharing 1 to 5x per day for Twitter and less on the other social networks?
I certainly was. I would say the magic number is 4 tweets on a new post to get more social shares. (Remember that tweets have a short life!)
