Is your Twitter marketing working?
Do you want more engagement for your tweets?
Knowing how to write your tweets and when to publish them can increase visibility, boost engagement and drive traffic to your site.
In this article you’ll discover eight tips to deliver better tweets.
Tweet Without Links
Research shows that tweets without links get more engagement.
Remember that not everything you tweet has to have a link. If you limit the number of links you share on Twitter, you’ll add value to the ones you do.
For example, I tweeted this same quote with and without a link.
Use the Right Hashtags
If you want to get noticed, add hashtags that give your tweets context. It’s important not to overdo it with hashtags, however.
Handy tools like Hashtagify and RiteTag can help you find the right hashtags to use.
Find Hashtags With Hashtagify
Hashtagify allows you to search for a hashtag you want to use. In the Search box, type in your hashtag (socialmedia, for example) and press Enter.
The results let you see the most popular related hashtags. By default, you see the results in Basic Mode view, which looks like a mind map.
Add Images for Shared Links
It’s no surprise that tweets with images stand out and get more engagement than tweets without images. Fortunately, there are a variety of tools you can use to find the right images to use in your tweets.
Twitshot is an online tool you can use in any browser that makes it easy to find images to use when you share links. It’s also available as a Chrome extension and iOS app.
Compose your tweet in the Twitshot tweet box and paste in the URL you want to share.
Tweet With the Proper Format
To compose a tweet in the proper format, you need to have all of the individual elements in the correct order.
Start your tweet with text and then add a link. Make sure to include the attribution with @mentions if applicable. Then add hashtags and insert your image.
