Share Text
This is your chance to connect with people and let them know you understand their struggles. Address who you are targeting and hit them with your short unique selling proposition (USP).  Let your audience know how your business or organization can help solve their that pain-point problem.

Featured Image
This is the very first thing a potential customer will notice when scrolling through their feed. If the featured image for your homepage is boring, broken, or just doesn't convey the image you want, it can make sharing your website on social media very frustrating.

Facebook, LinkedIn, and other social media sites will either pull the feature image from an image they find on your homepage, however, the featured image can be specifically assigned with a properly configured WordPress website, even if it does not appear on your homepage at all!

Business Title
When you share your homepage in social media, the title that appears below the featured image is the same title that will appear in Google for your business! Make very sure that the title clearly identifies who you are, what you do, and where you do it. Look for typos, lack of clarity, anything that doesn't look right.

Business Description
Like the title above, this is likely the same description that will appear on your business's website in Google and other search engines. Triple check that it clearly describes your business and contains important keywords.
