How to Increase Your Social Media Click-Through Rates

Published April 23, 2014

social media how to

Want more traffic to your website?

What if you could double the click-through rates of your social media updates?

Extra traffic from Facebook, LinkedIn andTwitter would be nice, right?

In this article you’ll discover four steps for crafting a great call to action that improves click-throughs.

Why Driving Traffic Matters

Your website is the hub of your online marketing efforts. It’s where your audience can find the answers to their questions and where you deepen relationships with readers, offer value to visitors, and yes, maybe even encourage email signupsand purchases.

In an ideal world, you’d be funneling all of your social fans and followers to your website so you could do just that.

Jim Natal reading poetry at the Prescott College’s Sam Hill Art Museum



Like dealing with the Devil, or being under a

witches’ spell, I’m compelled to know how many

memories can be held far down in my brain.


If they’re lost, I’ve got to know where they

go. Did they saddle up and ride away, like a

cowboy drifting across the range for a change?


Are they only out of mind for a while to ride herd

over memories that have strayed? Will they all one

day come riding back and fill the corral inside my head?


Or have old memories escaped so there’d be room

for new ones to take up residence because there’s

only so much space inside my head for them to live?


If they’ve escaped the inside of my head where’d

they go and how? Wouldn’t I feel a memory escaping

through my nose, or maybe my ears?


Have I pissed them away? Did they mix with something

I ate and become shitty memories? Can they escape

through my pores when I sweat, or in my voice?


Do memories take up space? My memories of any evil

I’ve done can escape and make me happy, but ones of

those I love and ones I enjoy, I never want to lose.


When the day comes I can’t recognize your face, I’ll

know memories do disintegrate and leave behind an

empty space that’ll never be filled with another like you.

Medical Marijuana

Unseen waves of pain arrive

as we age. Medicine cabinets

become the place to go when

we want a little peace and pray

that the pain will cease.


Open the door and see so many medicine

bottles sitting there. Some to help sleep arrive

and others to stop the ongoing harm that makes

one want to see the light at the end of the tunnel

when we’re about to die.


Take that pill often enough and

every afternoon you’ll have to

take another to counteract its effects,

and soon you’ll need another to combat

its consequences too.


Like a polluted river, kidneys and liver slowly

corrode, until you’re taking pills for them too.

The longer you’re alive and want to survive,

the more important your medicine cabinet



Massages and hot tubs temporarily relieves

our aches stemming from our mistakes, but

we can’t survive and stay alive without fulfilling

our pharmacological needs that doctors insist

are the only way to stay that way.


Then one day, the legislature in your state

has an epiphany and declares Marijuana

can be used for pain because after all, it’s

only grain. Hesitant to try and not believing

it could possibly reduce any agony, you buy

a few strains to see.


Eat it, smoke it, or do both, you don’t know,

which to do, but try one or the other and after

sleeping all night, you awake and feel like leaping

from your bed, because the bleeping pain that’s been

with you for years and years has gone missing and you

wonder why it has taken all these years to legalize a plant

put on Earth to relieve some of our pain.
