    How many social shares did your last blog post get? I know it is less than 50. No need to worry, you are not alone in this. Most of the blogs cannot get people to share their content and I know it is frustrating to see some other bloggers get hundreds of shares on their every post.
    How they get it done? Exactly what are these people doing that you are not?
    Here are few ways to boost your social media shares:

    1.Make Your Blog Responsive
    At present nearly 60 percent of searches concerning local business are done using a mobile device.it is clear that mobile search will continue to get higher in future. That means your blog should be responsive by means of getting high number of searches. If your blog is not responsive, it may result in loss of huge traffic because responsiveness will have direct impact on your content share frequency.

    2.Identify Why People Share Content
    People share content because of self interest. They share your content not because they want to build your brand image, but they share it to build their own status. They do social sharing because they want to look knowledgeable, smart or you can say controversial.

    Your content should give them a tough reason to share. Identifying this point is very important to develop a great and engaging content.

    3.Create Striking Content
    If you want to get social media shares, you need to develop engaging and informative content. If your content is impressive and informative, your readers are much more likely to share it or they even pay for it.

    Nobody wants to destroy their image by sharing bad content.

    4.Create Lengthy and Informative List Posts
    The list posts are quite effective and highly loved because reader can read such posts quickly and learn lots of things in less time.
    Create posts in depth and break the content into points.

    5.Make Use of High Quality Images
    Images defining the content help the readers to understand the post quickly. Adding high quality images to the blog post increases the chances of attracting more readers and gets more shares.

    6.Add Links to Your Social Media Profiles
    Adding your social media profiles and linking them to your blog is important. Adding the social media profiles to the blog makes your readers aware of your social media fame.

    7.Integrate The Blog With Social Media Comments
    A lot of time when we share a post on social media, we get more comments and shares that that of blog comments. So, integrating social media comments with the blog is an effective way to increase social shares, comments on the posts etc.

    8.Offer Giveaways with Shares
    Offering giveaways on your website or on social media shares can be very effective and helpful in increasing the followers and give the blog a boost.

    9.Post At The Right Time
    The timing of post on social media networks is very important. If you make a post at right time, you can attract more readers to your blog. You can use various social media tools to schedule the posts.
    Schedule your best posts for more engagement and high traffic. Also, make sure to use call to actions with along with the social media shares. You can even use multiple descriptions for the same posts.

    10.Share Posts With Social Media Groups
    Joining social media groups and posting in them can be a quick and effective way to gain more traffic and shares. What you need to do is to join relevant groups with lots of members.

    Getting your readers to share you content is not a difficult task as it seems to be, the most important thing is to make your blog informative, reader friendly and off course easy to understand.

    Share your views in comments.
