40 Ways to Share a Blog Post

Sharing a link to your post isn’t enough to guarantee that it gets read. While 80 percent of readers will read your headline, only 20% will click through to the post itself. Give users a compelling reason to click your link. What can you do if simply tweeting and Facebook posting isn’t enough?
