1. ASKS QUESTIONS & CREATE A SENSE OF URGENCY

A good question makes a reader linger in thought and pushes them to gather more information. Once you have your audience hooked with your question, the next step is to explain the details of why whatever you're saying is so important. For example, you can use the cause and effect concept by stating "If you don't consider this, then so and so will happen, and we don't want that." The key is to emphasize why immediate action is required. Try to avoid being over dramatic but rather use logic and reasoning to prove your point and help the audience understand your position.

2. A POWERFUL PICTURE

" you are not equal I'm sorry". A picture is worth a thousand words but not all pictures are created equal. Some pictures may portray the best or the worst moments of history. Pictures can symbolize happiness, truth, loyalty, love, ignorance, tolerance, abuse ext. A photo can move mountains and what i mean by this is that people from all over the world can come together and relate to one another, support one another, or simply acknowledge the situations going on around them.

3. USE A VISUAL AID

Visual aids such as pictures, slides, models, charts or an overhead projector may emphasize a point. Some people can retain information better when they see information represented in a visual way instead of purely verbal.

5. BE RELATABLE

Knowing how your audience can relate to you. When people see that you have experience similar things as them, they are more willing to listen to what you have to say.

6. PROVIDE FACTS

Stating an opinion and backing it up with evidence. An argument is only as good as the facts behind it. People are more likely to believe someone that uses logic and reasoning in contrast to someone who just blurts out their opinion.

7. USING HUMOR TO ESTABLISH TRUST

In the sea of depressing and serious posts, it's good to see a post that'll make you laugh. It happens that people will tend to feel more comfortable around you if you can make them laugh. Comedy is a good way to grab people's attention and introduce a hard topic in a non serious manner. It can help the audience digest what you're trying to say a little bit easier. In addition, when people read something funny online, they tend to want to show it to their friends.

8. LIKES WILL GET YOU LIKED

A large amount of likes will show your social media followers that you might actually have something important to say. The more likes you receive the greater chance your followers will gravitate towards your mentality.

9. PROVIDE REAL LIFE STORIES

"Some parents, likely now in their 70’s, still looking for their missing child." Stories have power and they inspire, motivate, challenge and touch individuals. A real life story pushes individuals to research more about the subject, to share the story such as this one to maybe be of assistance. You can make a point or choose an issue by creating a story or providing a true concurring event.

10. SHARING YOUR POST MEANS SHARING YOUR IDEA

You're end goal should be getting your post across as many people as possible, so being able to generate a multiple amount of shares will work in your favor. If one of your followers shares your post not only will you have access to your followers but now you will have access to their followers.
