18 Ways To Drive Traffic To Your Blog Using Twitter

Published on 7/3/2017
For additional information  Click Here

Twitter users don't use Twitter to read tweets that are statements, although quotes are popular, Twitter users want to link to useful content. Furthermore, it is good to share content from the web, content from your newsfeed, and content from your blog. As with all tweets it is best not to go overboard with any promotions of your content, as it becomes spammy to push the same tweet every minute of the day. As a consequence, people will refuse to acknowledge it.


Below I describe 18 ways to drive traffic to your blog using Twitter.

1. Tweet How You Talk


No one wants to see the same pictures and advertisements everywhere. I was on Twitter a few weeks ago and was checking followers' newsfeeds and I saw the same picture of a sports car on five Twitter User's pages. I thought for one second I was viewing fake accounts. I then realised that these were sponsored posts where the Twitter user was paid to tweet at a certain time.

People want a unique experience with a unique voice and the best way to do that is to tweet like you speak and choose images according to your tastes, not the most popular image.

2. Ask Your Blog Readers To Follow You


If you've got eyeballs on your blog and they are enjoying your content, you may as well include it in your call to action to follow you on Twitter. To make it easy for them, provide a link or button on your blog to follow you on Twitter.

3. Comment On Other Twitter Users Tweets

When you find a tweet worth retweeting rather than retweeting it, quote tweet it and comment what you think of the article they are linking to, or the quote they have posted. Your followers are interested in your views, and why you have retweeted.

4. Follow People Who Follow Influencers


If they are interested in the influencer's content and your content is in the same industry as the influencers, they might also be interested in reading your content, and following you.

 


5. Ask Your Followers On Other Social Media Platforms To Follow You

If you are on Facebook, you might frequently get an invitation to like someones content. If you ask your followers on other social media platforms to follow you, you can grow your fan base more quickly and sometimes virally as friends of friends could follow you.


6. Pin A Tweet To The Top Of Your Newsfeed

Once you pin a tweet to the top your newsfeed this will be the tweet that gets seen first and will give your audience the first impression of what you're about. Your choice of tweet could include a popular tweet that received many retweets and likes, or it could be an affiliate promotion you want your audience to interact with. It is recommended to change the tweet every week or two in case a Twitter user mistakes your pinned tweet for an account that has become inactive.

You may decide to test which type of pinned tweet gets more engagement. You could pin an affiliate link tweet to the top of your newsfeed for two weeks and then test a quote for two weeks, and finally try a link to a blog post. All these tweets and results will vary as it will depend on the affiliate offer, the chosen quote, and the blog post. To counter this you could choose these tweets that have already received retweets and engagement, and check their results after two weeks as a pinned tweet.

7. Use A Number In Your Tweets

Using a number in your tweets gives twitter users a goal as to how many tips they are going to read. Which sounds more attractive.

8. Attract Views With More Than Headlines

Think about your blog post and how you can persuade people to read it other than just typing in the headline and a link. Think of an aspect of it, what its goal is, what it is promoting and keep it short and interesting. An example of this would be "Twitter users don't use Twitter to read tweets that are a statement...link"

Try to capture the audience's attention in a way that makes the audience curious.

Practice this several times and then pick one that you like.

When this is done right, your tweet and blog could go viral and attract tons of traffic to your blog, as well as increasing your follower count. Make sure when someone retweets your tweet, to acknowledge it. Thank them as they will appreciate the credit and the mention, and be more willing to help you in the future.

9. Include Hashtags To Increase Engagement

Hashtags are like keywords. When you add hashtags, people can find your content when they type a hashtag into Twitter Search. If you are marketing a product, you could set up a hashtag #nameofproduct so people can find your product and update information about your product.

A hashtag is simply a #. It is advised by many Twitter users not to cram your tweet with hashtags as it borders on spam. Recommended practice is two hashtags per tweet, even if many of the words within your tweet are known hashtags.

Hashtags allow you to extend your reach further than your followers who read your feed, and get found by Twitterers that are interested in the topic you are tweeting about.

You can search for the most popular hashtags related to your niche on google and then use Hashtag.org to find related hashtags. Hashtag.org shows a web of hashtags and their popularity.

?10. Use @username Mentions To Tag Twitter Users And Get Them To Pay Attention To Your Tweet

@mentions is a way of getting a Twitter user's attention (especially if they're an influencer and they're not following you). If done enough times to be noticeable the influencer might mention you and you will get exposure to their audience. But don't over do it to the point they want to block you. If you @mention them more than 3 times a week, day after day, it could be looked upon as spam.

Retweet @mentionsOfYourName and your blog material to drive sharing and make your content go viral. Anything with your name on it should be Retweeted to take every opportunity for your brand to go viral. Extra comments are advisable too, as it adds to the virality, and enables you to keep track of engagement.

Asking your audience to retweet your content is the best way to get people interested in your content and to get it to go viral. If you don't ask, you don't get. Unless you retweet their content and then they may retweet your content as a reciporical action. For influencers to notice your retweets, amongst all the other retweets, it is advisable to retweet several of the influencer's tweets that are not getting much engagement.

Answer mentions and replies as you can begin to build relationships this way. Don't discount a Twitter user with a small follower count. A Twitter user with an engaged Twitter follower base is better than a Twitter user with an unengaged large Twitter following.

Get involved in Twitter Chats as this is an opportunity to network and build your Twitter community.

11. To Get More Impressions Use Images

There's no need to use images with every tweet but it has been found that tweets featuring images get more engagements in the form of impressions, likes, retweets and replies. Use images that support your content. If you are wishing your audience a happy Christmas then an image of a decorated Christmas tree would be a good choice of image to support this content.

Pictures also help to break the monotony of text and give the eyes a break. But even though you are a part of the Twitter newsfeed, you are also constructing your own newsfeed and when people view your profile, you'll want your newsfeed to be well constructed with a balance of text tweets and tweets with images.

12. Create Curiosity With Questions

If you ask questions and then answer them with links to your blog posts this will drive traffic to your blog. E.g How can I get more traffic to my blog? www.yourwebsite.com Many Twitter users will be carrying partly answered questions, and some of their questions will be about getting more followers, engagement, and traffic. But you have to make your answers unique as many answers are regurgitated material. You could take a quote from your article and turn it into a question to show that you have unique content.

13. Share Useful Content Consistently

If you are consistently sharing good content that people find useful, people will want to know more about you and whether you have a blog so they can read more about you and your offers. And your Bio is the place to place these links.

Think about your audience on Twitter and what links you would like them to click and whether you would like them to land on a landing page specific to your Twitter audience. This could be an email capture page or an affiliate offer. Although it can be annoying when Twitter users write,"As a token of my appreciation, here is some free training", and they are offering an advertisement and asking for payment.
It is better to offer real free training to build a good customer relationship, rather than a grab for cash that often ends in an unfollow.

14. Get Them On To Your Blog With Half The Story

Cut your tweet short rather than giving Twitter users the whole story. If they want the whole story, then they will have to click the link to find out what you meant. If you give them the meat and nothing to chew on, they may make an assumption based on what you have told them, that they would prefer to move on. If you give them something to think about and wonder that maybe your information sounds intriguing.

An example of this is 20 Tips Why Twitter Users...link

15. Get Exposure For Your Tweets

Repeat your tweets to ensure everyone sees them, as not all of your audience is looking at the newsfeed all the time. Experiment with different images. And rinse and repeat.

It is considered spam if you retweet the same content more than 4 times a week as if people see the same content over and over they will just ignore it and you won't get the engagement you are looking for.

Reporpose old content and reinvigorate it. Then share it again if it has no use by date. Creating posts for one off events is not wise as it is not evergreen content, meaning that it can't be reused next week, next month or next year. You need to create content for any occassion that can be repurposed and reused whenever you choose.

16. Retweet To Get Retweets

Retweet influencer's content repeatedly to get a mention or retweet from influencer to get on their audience's radar. Retweeting influencers' and your follower's content will help improve your Twitter reputation and will increase the amount of engagement you get and increase your follower number.

Sites like justretweet.com reward you for retweeting other people's content with points for you to reward other people for sharing your content. Some of the content is high quality that many people are happy to share.

17. Tweet Often To Stay On The Twitter Radar

It's good to tweet often. Every 20 minutes is best, to ensure your audience understands that you exist. People essentially want solutions to their problems. Therefore how to articles are popular, as well as tips articles, and what you don't want to do articles.

?18. Tweet Industry News To Show You Keep Pace With The Trends

Sharing your industry's news is something you don't want to forget to share, as your industry changes, business needs to keep up with the latest trends.

?If you follow even one of these methods you should see some traffic from Twitter to your blog.
