Learning How To Use Twitter For Blog Distribution
Getting your blog posts tweeted and establishing yourself as an insightful, useful resource is actually not complicated at all.
This is a simple and fun process.
But, before delving into how to get people to notice your content, we will first examine how to make tweeting your posts easy and convenient for the average reader.
Here are a few easy guidelines to follow when trying to get a tweet.
Your blog should be up and running in an attractive, readable format design. The design you chose should assimilate well with all major browsers.
In other words, be sure your web design is current. It may sound excessive, but make your blog an eye-catching piece at first glance. If your blog is not interesting at first glance, people will move on to the next one pretty quickly.
However, if your first page shows character people are more likely to read it. Keep in mind that you have only about eight seconds to capture someone's attention.
Add a Tweet This Button:
After you have optimized the look and feel of your blog add a "Tweet" button. You should add this button to the end of each blog post you write. Allowing your readers to tweet your posts to their own Twitter is an excellent way to promote your blog.
When followers tweet your blog easily and quickly, it makes this aspect of social media promotion that much easier to accomplish.
Each time someone tweets out one of your posts their followers can then re-tweet and so on and so forth. The more times your post is tweeted out the higher chance for re-tweets.
There are many simple tutorials online that can show you how to create and add this button to your blog posts. However, you should first make sure that the tutorial you choose is compatible with your blog's format.
Once you've created and added a "Tweet" button to each of your posts test out the buttons. You should always tweet your blogs, anyway. Then start publicizing this new addition. Use all your social media outlets (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc..) to show everyone how excite you are about your "Tweet" button being added to your blog.
Once you have the proper framework established on your blog for successful tweeting, make sure your blog posts are current, relevant, and informative. Keep them simple and to the point. Ideally, make your blog into a friendly resource, that is likely to bring positive feedback from your readers.
The more fun someone has reading a blog, the more they can connect with it, the more likely they are to tweet.
Make sure that your blogging efforts consist of material that is relevant to your industry. Then, people who follow you will be happy to read, and your "Tweet" buttons should see a lot of use!
