I’m sure you’ve asked yourself this question.

Getting people to share your content ain't easy!

Plus, Facebook reach is down & it’s hard enough getting people to even see your posts.

In this article, I point out 5 reasons why your awesome Facebook posts aren't going viral.

5 Reasons Your Awesome Facebook Posts Aren't Going Viral

1. They Lack Emotion

Your content simply lacks emotion -- it doesn't feel like it has any soul.

What to Do

Personalize your posts. Behind-the-scenes stories or even a selfie or two are easy adds to your content mix.

These posts humanize your company, which helps set you apart from the competition.

2. Not Share Worthy

Yawwwn... your content is so boring!

It puts me to sleep!
