One of the things that you will discover, once you have embarked on your blogging adventure, is that its a crowded world out there. Whatever it is that you are doing, chances are high that thousands of other people have already been there before. It can be difficult, in this regard, for you to make the breakthrough that you are looking for. There are, of course, a number of things that you can do to increase your visibility, including SEO, but, as everyone knows, SEO works in mysteriously slow ways. That is why it’s so important for you to tap into the power of Social Media to give you the boost that you need to get off the ground. If you own or run a WordPress website, the good news is that you can automatically share new posts with your social media friends.

Once people click on the button, the post will be shared to their own social media accounts. To enable this service, simple drag and drop the social media buttons that you want to have appear on your posts into the relevant section. Available buttons are;
The advantage of doing this is that it allows you to reach out to many more people than would have been possible using organic, search engine driven traffic alone. That’s it. Now all the posts that you publish will be shared to your social media accounts. You will also have Social Share buttons appear in your posts.
