TWITTER – THE TRAFFIC HOARDER!
Nowadays, no one can deny how popular Twitter has become. From its original purpose of
being a platform of communication for small groups, this social media site has evolved into
something that businessmen interpret as ‘list-building’ and eventually as a traffic generator.
TWITTER IS MADE TO COLLECT TRAFFIC
Yes, it’s true. It’s packed with interesting tools that are attention-grabbing and most especially
revenue generating. Check the details below to find out how you can collect traffic from
1. Future Tweets.com
It’s a free service which allows users to schedule their Twitter messages. You can send a tweet
at a specific time in the future.
If you have prepared messages for your followers, you can manage and plan when to send it
using this tool. You will be able to update your status even without your PC or mobile phone.
Your daily updates will inform your followers that you take responsibility for your tweets
seriously. This will make them more interested.
2. Tweet Adder.com
This tool is designed to automate the building of followers as well as to manage both incoming
and outgoing direct messages. You can have 150 new followers in just ONE day! The more
followers you have, the more traffic you can get!
This tool is very useful especially for business users who are using Twitter to connect with their
clients. It allows you to manage multiple accounts and track trends. Some of the huge companies
who use CoTweet .com are Coca Cola, Dell, Microsoft, Ford and Twitter.
This is an application that shows who the biggest and most popular users of Twitter are. On its
homepage, you will be able to see a table of Twitter users arranged from the highest number of
followers - how many are following them, how many updates they’ve made and how long they
have been with Twitter.
If you find it hard to follow individuals from Twitaholic, this app would probably give you
better results because your targets are arranged by categories. With specific categories, you can
find industries or people that matter to you.
How to Increase your retweet potential
1. Don’t exceed over 120 characters. When your message is to be re-tweeted, it
would look like this:
RT @<username-max of 15character>: <your message>
Username 15 (max)
Colon (: ) 1
@ sign 1
If you will use the maximum characters allowed which is 140, your follower would have to
edit the message before they could re-tweet it (and there’s a big chance they won’t edit it).
Create messages that are less than 120 so your followers just need to click the Retweet button.
Make it easy for them so they will be motivated to help you with your exposure by retweeting
2. Make use of hash tags (#)
It’s a symbol placed (without space) before important topics or keywords within a
Ex: I love #socialmedia so much!
Using hash tags will categorize the word/topic and anyone who clicks on #socialmedia
will see all the other Tweets about that category. You will also notice that there is no
space between the hash tag (#) and social media. Keep this in mind always.
With hash-tagged words, your followers can easily retweet your message especially
for specific audiences.
3. Do #followfriday or #FF the right way.
#Followfriday lets you suggest people you believe are worth following.
The wrong way:
“#FF @AGreatGuy @SomeCuteLady @MsTweeter @MrInfluencer”
This example fails to state why these four people are worth following.
The right way:
“#FF @AGreatGuy He reveals tips on writing an attention-grabbing headline.
In this example, readers are told why this person you are suggesting is worth
following. When people see that you are referring worthwhile individuals, they will
start to trust you and retweet your messages often.
