You already know that you’ve got to create great content if you want people to share it. You’re doing that. And you’re waiting for the floods of traffic, right?
It’s a bit of a chicken and egg thing… you can get traffic from social media when you share your posts and lots of others share your posts, but that only works if you’ve already got a following, and how do you get the following if other people aren’t helping you share your posts… and round and round it goes.

They use these secret weapons!
