One difficulty I hear about all the time is creative people complaining that they don’t have enough time to be creative AND share their creativity. In other words, they either don’t have enough time to write blog posts and social media updates or they run out of content to share very quickly. Usually this is because the person share’s it once and moves on. Well, here’s a great tip for you: start sharing your old posts along with your new ones! Doing this can greatly increase your traffic.
One caveat, if you do it poorly, it can alienate some of your followers. Here are 3 precautions you can take:
1. Space out your posts, taking care not to post something several times in a row on the same site.
2. Change the description of your post each time you share it to avoid it being labeled as spam.
3. Maintain your ratio of promotional to non-promotional shares (whatever percentage that is that has been working for you).
