5 Simple Steps to Going Viral on Twitter

Going Viral!

Successful viral marketing on Twitter is not as simple as many assume, however, with the right guidelines and steps, it can be done and bring about a rewarding outcome!

Therefore, for today’s post, I will be sharing you 5 simple steps to going viral on Twitter:

1. Call on Action:

Don’t take retweeting, or lack of it, lightly. An RT is a way to show your Twitter friends and followers that you care about them and about the content they share with you. If retweeting is the action you wish your readers to take, the best way to persuade people to do it is to motivate them to by asking or offering incentives. When tweeps retweets your content, they’re very likely to also repost your call to action, lending it their credibility and influence.

2. Timing is King:

There is a window of time during which sharing on Twitter occurs more often so you should keep an eye on the following:

  • The first few days of the business week.
  • Monday through Wednesday (weekends are usually slower).

3. Links Rule:

Almost 70% of all retweets contain a link. Therefore, if you want to spread your off-Twitter content, you should make sure that you do utilize links in your tweets. However, make sure you do mix it up with other types of tweets now and then and do not spam your followers with ads! Continue reading »

10 Tips for Success on Twitter (2)

Welcome back to part 2 of our Twitter success tips. Here are 5 more tips to help you make better use of Twitter:

1. Invest in Efforts:

A quick direct message to thank a new follower, or a simple message sent to a Twitter friend you have not seen in a while says a lot about how important connections are to you. These extra efforts don’t take much time or effort, but mean the world as you are building and sustaining your network.

2. Ask Questions:

Never hesitate to continuously ask questions. Questions help initiate conversations and they help you and others learn new things all the time.

3. Proclaim:

Don’t be shy about proclaiming the accomplishments of others. Twitter is not only about self promotion but rather the promotion of all who can make the conversation better.
