Here are a few tips:

  • When uploading visual content, use hashtags (1-2 on twitter and 4-5 for instagram)!

  • Find a creative way to turn your words into a visually stimulating info graphic

  • Evaluate your website; make sure there isn’t too much text. Add pictures, videos, colors–make it appealing to the eyes!

If all else fails, use cats. We all know cats get shares. (kidding! Don’t just post anything, be relevant!)
