Sharing is caring (about content).
Sure, there are some Tackks you don’t need to share with the world — that special thank-you note to Aunt Carol or the small-group assignment for your ninth-grade class. But too many Tackks suffer from SSD: Severe Sharing Deficiency.
#TackkTip: Don’t keep your Tackk a secret. Share the heck out of it.
What can you say? Your Tackk is hot. Your content has never looked better. So, why have only three people viewed it? Good news is sharing your Tackk is as easy as creating it. Here are some tips for going social with your content:
- Press the finish button! Click ANY OF THE 9 SOCIAL ICONS to spread your news on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, LinkedIn, StumbleUpon and via email.
- Customize your social speak. Replace our default message with your own. Take a minute to think about your content and the keywords that will catch your audience’s attention.
- Be direct in your sharing and outreach. Know friends, bloggers, influencers, businesses, organizations or tweeters who’ll love your content? Share with directed, one-to-one posts in the social sphere. Type up quick, personal messages that explain why your content appeals to their interests and what you want them to do with it.
- Jump in the conversation. Do a little research on who's talking about your topic, what hashtags they're using, how they're pinning it. Tackking about your DIY wedding invitations? Join the #DIY, #wedding, #budgetwedding, #craftywedding convos on Twitter. Pin the Tackk to your wedding board with a description that matches brides' searches. Engage people over your technique, materials, theme, colors, cost.
- Call your fans to action. Nothing wrong with asking for a little help. Invite your viewers to share your Tackk with their social networks, to comment on your content or respond to your post with their own Tackks. Don't be afraid to ask for retweets and shares!
- Be a repeat sharer. Social sharing isn’t a one-and-done deal. Improve, tweak, repackage your outgoing message at healthy intervals. Highlight different aspects of your content, use community-based hashtags when necessary, observe hot times to post to your audience. Hit the most of your audience as possible — without becoming a nag.
