    Content marketing is only successful if your content is shareable, whereas the definition of ‘shareable’ in this context means a couple different things: attention-grabbing, relevant, amusing, unique, never-before-seen … and so on. If you can create valuable content that wows people, you can undoubtedly generate more traffic, effectively improving your bottom line.

    So how does one go about it?

    I analyze the content that gets a lot of likes, upvotes, etc. I also analyze the content that I share with others. So far, the content that gets the most shares seems to resonate or validate a feeling people have about a subject. So a share is like a "thumbs up."

    I think you can show the value be clear about what the reader will gain or learn. you should use keywords and highlight lists and you speak in the second person this is the way for creating more shareable content this is helpful.

    Yep, that's the way to do it.

    OP, if you want an AUTOMATED way of doing what the poster above said, you can use tools like Buzzsumo and others They help you find content that gets a lot of social signals.

    You can then write your own version of niche content that's already popular in your niche

    Create content that has an attractive title. Try to include numbers in the title as well.

    I don’t think that making content that is shareable is something you can plan. Buzzfeed has been trying to do it for years, but their strategy is to have a bunch of overworked creatives putting up insane amounts of content until something goes viral. And now most of their stuff gets a lot of views because they’re recognizable. You just want to make something that encourages strong emotion in your readers, charm them or anger them. But that doesn’t work for most IM sites, like Amazon Affiliate sites. I don’t think those sites are very sharable, by nature, they’re meant to be informative, not provocative.

    If to analyze the direct meaning of "shareable", i.e. sharing on different platforms by people, you need to create meaningful and valuable pieces of content with catchy titles, well page structure with paragraphs, pictures etc, add share buttons.

    If your content is good and has value it will be shared.

    Increase in traffic will be a benefit for all your effort.
