4 Blog Tools to Get Your Articles In Front of More Blog Readers

social media toolsDo you want more blog readers?

Are you looking for creative tools to increase your exposure?

When people share your blog content with friends, they help build your readership.

In this article you’ll discover four often-overlooked tools that encourage social sharing to draw more readers to your blog.

#1: Reveal Content After Shares

When a person clicks a social share icon on your blog, your post shows up in their news feed where their friends can see it. This explicit endorsement (social proof) of your content draws in new readers.

After all, those friends probably have similar interests. When they see a trusted friend recommend your blog post, they are more likely to click through and read it.

If you want more shares—to get that all-important social proof—you have to ask for them, right? Including a specific call to action in your blog posts is an effective way to get shares, but have you thought about adding an incentive?

Social Locker is a clever WordPress plugin that allows you to show part of a post, and then ask your readers for a social share in order to see the rest. It’s a win-win exchange. Your reader gets access to additional content and you get the social shares you need to reach more people.
