  1. Direct Messages

You can even send Direct Messages to the people you have mentioned in the post. If they like the article they can share it in their circles.

  1. Share Comments

If people are discussing and sharing interesting stuff in the comments section you can post  a short discussion and link it to your post.

  1. Create a Teaser Campaign

Teaser campaign is very popular where target audience is provided with bits and part of the information before the actual launch of the product. This same tactic can be used for well received or anticipated posts for a particular month say January like Latest Internet trends for upcoming year etc.

  1. Piggy bag on Old Posts

If your old post did really well you can piggy bag on that post to promote your current article. E,g You wrote a post on Internet Trends last year that was well received then you can link it to your current title and say that If you liked that post then you will surely like this post too. It is a way to remind your target audience that they like your post and consider it worth reading and sharing.

Thus all the above strategies coupled with analytics will help to achieve the desired results.
