You will reach a high authority website having the same type of content and request him to place your website URL(yourwebsitename.com) in his content under a relevant anchor text(A word or heading of content matching with your type of content or purpose).This anchor text will be a backlink to your website.

High authority social media websites provide strong backlinks to your website and it generates real organic traffic for your website.
