Greet New Followers
Source: slymarketing.comSometimes when I meet new friends on Facebook I often thank them for being my friend & add a link of my homepage. The tactic which I follow is this–I drop a link as how can I help them & point a link toward my blog. It is same as saying “hi”. This promotes my blog in a simple & most of all in a non-spammy way. Greet them with a question & if they need any help then attach a link of your blog. Instead of just posting your article on social media ask some questions (basically try chatting) & provide simple answers to their problems. If you will follow this approach you will not come as desperate. You will get more hits on your blog indirectly with the help of this technique (it will work because you were not behaving like a Hitler asking them to share your blog post).
Increase the Use of Hashtags

Let us take an example: You are on twitter and you are having a difficult time finding suitable users on twitter. You tweet but are not able to listen to what you tweeted (here hashtag comes into play). You can add hashtags in every second tweet which you are writing. Google plus & Facebook users do not depend much on hashtags, but Instagram users go crazy to use hashtags. So, make #hashtags work for you & target your readers (grow your following with the help of the hashtags).
