People love pictures. They will like, share and comment on them more than any other content, so remember that when posting your pieces online. If you couldn't get the copyright for a compelling image that relates to your piece, post it your Facebook and link your article to the picture. More people will see the image; if it's good, more people will follow to your article.
2. Don't be afraid to get a little emotional.
7) Do Gangnam Style dance in video.
