If you want to help spread the word about the Fediverse, try politely asking your favourite sites, organisations or projects what their Fediverse/Mastodon/PixelFed etc address is.
Obviously not everyone has the time or the spoons to maintain social media accounts, but just casually asking for an address will indirectly let them know the Fediverse exists.
The more people that ask them, the more likely they are to find out more about the Fediverse and join 👍

Mastodon lets you "Favourite" a post and "Bookmark" a post, but what is the difference between these?
Favourite - Adds that post to your Favourite list, tells the post's author you've favourited it and adds 1 to the post's total favourites.
Bookmark - Adds that post to your Bookmark list, doesn't tell anyone and doesn't do anything else.
If you want people to notice your posts on the Fediverse, use hashtags!
Most Fediverse platforms like Mastodon only allow searching by hashtag, so if you don't include tags your post won't show up in search results.
It is ok to use lots of hashtags if your post deals with lots of different topics. Don't be embarassed to have a list of tags at the end, for example.
