What is Sharing the Smart Way ?
Sharing the smart way is a powerful social media sharing strategy developed by TechReviewPro, that provides you a smarter way to share news, articles or blog posts of other blogger friends in such a way that it not only helps you build good connections with them but also boost your website traffic in a profitable manner.
To make it easy, the concept behind “Sharing the Smart Way” is to share others work on social media to drive traffic to your website smartly and increase conversion to earn more revenue. Thus, it creates a win-win situation for everyone.
So, How to Drive Traffic and Earn Revenue by Sharing Others Work ?
Well, let me tell you the step by step process to help you learn how can you do it.
First of all, Visit Sniply and create a free account – it is simple and quick process.
What is Sniply ?
Sniply is a powerful URL shortening tool that lets you share other people’s work but still bring visitors to your site easily. Snilpy is Social Media Conversion Home where you can effortlessly attach a call-to-action button to generate sales based on the conversion rate of links you share.
Next step is to find out the stories worth sharing. Look out for the popular articles, news, blog posts or any thing else which is trending on internet right now. You have to be smart here because your goal is to find something which is worth sharing and people will love to click on your link.
So how do you know what is getting from hot to hotter on internet ?
There are many ways to do so but let me share few free tools to find out links worth sharing on social media.
Checkout what’s trending on Twitter. Simply, visit Twitter and discover what’s trending.
Pro Tips : Use Hashtags.org to know what is trending on Twitter in your niche.
Another way to find out trending content is to look for Tending section on Facebook.
Similarly, Google+ has also What’s Hot section where you may look for hot, popular and interesting things being shared on Google+.
Pro Tips : Though you may lookout anywhere to see what is worth sharing but I recommend you to share something which is within your niche. The evergreen content from your niche subject is not only good for your target audiences but also increase CTR [Click Through Rate] and conversion.
For this, you may search for your target keyword in free tools like Topsy and Buzzsumo where you can filter the most shared or highly popular content by date and time like past 1 hour, past 12 hours, past 1 day, past week, past month, all time popular etc.
Topsy focuses more on Twitter but Buzzsumo is where you get details about other social media platforms also including Facebook, Pinterest, Google Plus and LinkedIn.
Now the real game starts – the game of smartness.
Copy the URL of post you want to share and paste it into Sniply to snip and get shortened link. Here you may customize it to look like whatever you wish including color of button, call-to-action text and link etc.
Look how I shared Harsh Agrawal’s post on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. If you take a close look on how I customized this link, you’ll come to know that I promoted his post about Net Neutrality in India as well as brought visitors to my own blog post – Trick to Browse Faster Without Internet Connection.
So you think, I’m smart ?
If yes, then you are again wrong here. Because, I’m not !
Wondering how ? Let me prove it.
I forgot to include #SaveTheInternet or #NetNeutrality in my social updates. Including these hashtags (which were trending then) could have increased the organic reach of my post on these social media. Thus, I couldn’t leverage the best from this social share considering the potential this post had got.
What you should learn from my mistakes ?
Well, you can be smarter than me and drive more visitors to your blog as well as increase your revenue. If you go this way :
- Share something that everyone cares.
- Share evergreen content which would be valuable for people even after 5-10 years from today.
- Add your most relevant blog posts link as promoting beauty tips along with blogging tips doesn’t make sense.
- Create attractive call to action button that users can’t go away without clicking your website’s link.
- Use proper hashtags or @mentions to boost your social updates reach.
For example, see how Social Media Examiner shared QuickSprout’s post smartly and creatively promoted their own blog post also.
So just start snipping and you’ll be surprised to see the results like this :
Isn’t it surprising that visitors end up spending 1 second more on my site compared to those links which I promote for others websites ?
More importantly, if you promote any of best affiliate programs like WP Engine who offers $200 commission for each sales that your referred link makes, you’ll end up earning around $200 x 6 = $1200 with just 6 conversions.
Yea, that’s what is the power of sharing others work.
I hope now you must have understood how to use this “Sharing the Smart Way” strategy by TechReviewPro to grow your revenue as well as drive traffic to your website.
I know these stats are not much impressive but think this way :
If you share the trending news of popular sites like Mashable, TechCrunch etc and promote your similar blog posts along with it, how much visitors you’ll be driving to your blog posts considering that people are usually in a rush to read news from these popular sites.

Are You Going to Use Sharing the Smart Way Strategy for Social Sharing ?
Well, if you ask me about this strategy – I personally use it more often and the results have been awesome. Though I personally use it more to make good connection with other bloggers. . . .
If you use it, you’ll be easily making good relationship and connection with other influencers in your niche. But the magical moment happens when top influencers like Neil Patel, Sujan Patel, Jeff Bullas, Darren Rowse, John Morrow etc. start following you.
Look at this screenshot from my Twitter mobile app :
You’ll be surprised to see the number of visitors coming to your blog site with just one share or retweet from them because if not millions, they certainly have thousands of active followers every now and then. And more importantly, their one retweet has potential to make your blog look like this.
Also, it is not all about traffic only. The conversion rate also generates good amount of revenue and you’ll be happy to see frequent notifications like this :
Considering you are just sharing others blog posts smartly without much hard work, it is not too bad to have few sales from your affiliate links and commission credited in your wallet. What do you think ?
The Pro Review from TechReviewPro
Depending upon your social profile strength and your influence in particular social platform, you might find it tough to make sales happen and increase your revenue specially if you have comparatively low social following. But this doesn’t mean you can’t increase your blog traffic and earn more revenue just by sharing others blog posts.
However, if you do it frequently – you’ll certainly be able to have social connections with powerful authority in your niche which is profitable in long-run. Do let me know, what you think about this strategy [Sharing the Smart Way].
