When you are done with posting, don't just share on social media platforms. Do a proper word coordination before sharing your latest blog post.
The post you share must be captivating for people to click. So do a proper word coordination before hitting the share button.

DON'T always expect or assume people know what you want them to do when they come across your post on social media.
Sometimes, it's advisable to let your audience know what you would like them to do. That's where you employ words like; ' read', ' share', ' read and share', ' check this out', ' pin it', ' tweet' and many others that you can lay your hands on.
