How to Share on Social Media

What is a "Share"?

Sharing on social media is like forwarding a great article to friends or family. It's an easy way to highlight things in your industry or in your area that you find interesting!
If you find something on social media that you think your customers and followers would enjoy, sharing that content helps the right people see it.

Why Sharing is Important

In order for your social page to be a real asset for your business, they need content.  That content helps show what is important to you as a brand, brings in new customers, and drives engagement.

Sharing relevant posts is probably the easiest way to build that content for your page. Sharing posts when someone mentions you is also an excellent way to recognize the original poster and gives excellent social proof that your brand is out there doing things right!

Sharing social posts is a critical component of a good digital strategy.  Let's check out how it's done!
