Share on Facebook

Websites make money by people visiting their pages, clicking on advertising and generally being ‘engaged’.  So generally speaking, your article (no matter how well written) is only worth as much as the number of readers it can attract.  If publishers don’t get the same (or more) value from your articles than what they paid… why would they pay for more?

We provide our publishers with statistics on the number of readers your articles are attracting…

Your publisher can also see traffic from other sources (Twitter, Google+, Reddit) – so you should also share in as many places as possible.  But for now the fastest and most effective way is by sharing your article on Facebook.  When they are considering who they should use for future projects, having your post at the top of their social media performance is a big plus. Every time an article is shared, the reach (number of people who see the post) is multiplied.  This also increases the possibility of another person sharing.  This creates a ‘viral’ effect which can end up with millions of people reading an article (and instant fame for the author).

Remember – you can apply these same methods to promote articles you publish on YOUR blog too!

Share on Facebook

Step 1 : Find the Published Article

Remember you are paid to write the article – but having it published and credited to you is a privilege. Do not harrass the publisher for information about when your article will be published.  Instead, follow their newsfeed on social media (Facebook, Twitter) and keep an eye out for your article.

If you think you missed it on social media, you can also do a Google Search for the title of your article and you should be able to find it.

Follow the Publisher on Social Media

Step 2 : Share to as many people & groups as possible!

There are a few different options – you can choose the one most appropriate for you.  Of course, we recommend the biggest audience possible!


Choose the Audience

If you have a Facebook Page, or are a member of any Facebook Groups that might appreciate your article, then you should also share to them – it helps to ask your friends to share too!

Public vs Private

Your article is on a public website, and you’re supposed to be reaching as many people as possible… you can decide – but again remember that publicity is the point of this exercise!

Message & Hashtags

Write a short message to whoever you’re sharing the article with… explain what it is – and maybe ask them to share it too!  Include some hashtags as a way of telling facebook what topic the post includes.  The original post from your publisher would have had a few hashtags in it – but you can add more if you want!  Include things that you referenced in the article that people might be interested in.

Finally, share the post …

Then… go back to the training homepage for more ways to increase your article’s engagement.

Share to related Pages & Groups…

There’s tonnes of ‘interest groups’ on facebook with alot of members.  Sharing your articles on these groups will almost certainly boost your page views.   Many groups need to be joined first, and have rules about posting.  Try not to annoy or spam the group, just share your work and let people decide whether they want to read or not.

Here is a massive list of Facebook Groups…
