When it comes to Twitter its one of the best source to drive traffic to your blog. Despite having character limitations you can still be able to drive decent amount of traffic. Its not a rocket science! Its achievable. In this post I am sharing few tips on how you can drive traffic to your blog using Twitter.
- Grow your network
Twitter is all about followers & building a loyal readership base. So be the first one to follow people, engage with them by interacting, retweeting & liking their tweets so that people will start noticing you & some of them will follow you back.
- Be active
Make it a habit to be active in interacting with people on Twitter & posting tweets regularly. Don't just abandon your profile.
- Be creative in composing tweets
Your followers are reading tweets on a fast paced timeline & mind it, they are following many others too & not just you. So to gain their attention you will need to come up with direct-to-the-point/ interesting/ catchy tweets along with the blog post link.
- Use images
Content with relevant images gets more engagement in terms of clicks, retweets & likes. So be innovative & be brave to include images in your tweets which will be relevant to your blog post. If you want to create images on your own, then try websites like Canva & Pablo.
- Use hashtags
If you want your tweets to get noticed by people who aren't following you then using hashtags will be the best option as it will help you in getting your tweets noticed by the target audience. Use relevant hashtags related to your blog post but don't use it in excess.
- Tag relevant people
Do you know that you can tag 10 people in a tweet which contain images? Yes, so tag relevant people in your tweets. They can be your friends, influencers, people from the industry.
- Tweet more than once
If you are someone who publishes the blog post & share it on your Twitter only once, then imagine how many people would read it. Because not all of your followers will be online at that very moment. If you want your tweets to reach out to as many people, try to post more than once & at different times so as the tweets will get noticed by people in different time zones. Tip: Use different context & different images in every tweet to gain attention. Make the use of Buffer's Power Scheduler feature which comes with the Chrome extension.
- Discover the best times to share content
To find out what is the best time to post on Twitter, use Buffer's Optimal Timing Tool which helps in discovering the best times to share content on social media.
