I am new to this forum and would love to interact with you all.
Here is my first contribution to this forum. Feel free to ask any questions or queries you may have.
Twitter is a powerful platform to engage with your readers, connect new people and drive traffic to your site.
However, there are very few people really teaching how to take full advantage of this powerful platform.
It took me quiet sometime to drive traffic from Twitter.
1. Post in Blocks: One of the best ways to drive more traffic from Twitter to your site is by posting in blocks of 3 -4 tweets at a time. This way your tweets show up in a row giving you more exposure.
Make sure that all your tweets are of high value, last tweet being the most important as that is the one that's going to show up on top. If you do not know what to tweet about, you get some really good content to tweet in the below sites.
2. Label Your Tweets: Another way to get more clicks on your tweets is to label your tweets. For example, FREE PDF: , VIDEO: etc..
"FREE Report: Grab this free report in which I revealed all my traffic secrets ......."
You also need to re-tweet your most valued content 3 -4 times a day. If you re-tweet them at different points of time in a day, your tweets will be exposed to an entirely new set of audience.
The best times to tweet your most important content in Twitter: 12am to 2pm, evening after 6pm.
From my observation, people are least active on Sunday.
3. Su.pr: This is the only URL shorterner that puts your content infront of 8 million Stumbleupon users. You can schedule to tweet your posts at any time or date in future. Thus, allowing you to retweet your posts during peak times through out the day.
4. Hash tags: Use the most popular hash tags in your tweets. Any word that starts with the sign "#" becomes a Hash tag which inturn links to all other mentions of that word.
For example, if you go to Twitter search and search for "#marketing", you will find a long list of tweets containing
"#marketing" in them.
So, including popular hash tags in your tweets can give you lot of exposure.
Few resources to find popular hash tags.
If you want to follow people talking about Facebook, you can search Twitter using #fb hash tag and find a list of people talking about Facebook. If you have a very good content or article on Facebook which you want to tweet in Twitter, then you can use #fb in your post.
I suggest you to use one or two popular hash tags in a single tweet, without diluting their effectiveness.
