Why Share Other People’s Content?
It’s all about becoming a valuable resource. When you can dig up great articles your audience is interested in–regardless of the source–you’ll become more respected and your content will be widely shared.
And when you have some of your own content to share, people will be more likely to help spread the word.
Here’s where to find valuable content:
#1: Watch Large News Sites
Depending on your industry, you may find topical and interesting articles on large news sites such as USA Today, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. If you have a news site or magazine for your niche that provides industry news, make sure you have that bookmarked as part of your content.
The Huffington Post has a lot of different categories to draw your content from.
Social sharing is critical.
But how can you make your content as shareable as possible?
Follow this process, and consider the following 7 tips.
#1: Identify Your Most Popular Posts and Keywords
Take stock of your current content. What topics are already popular with your audience?
Look at your top content and keywords in Google Analytics. If you’re using a social sharing plugin like Shareaholic or Digg Digg, you may be able to get some free analytics on your most popular content that can help you learn what your audience wants.
