19 Simple Twitter Retweet Tips

  1. 1 9 S I M P L E T W I T T E R T I P S T H AT G E T M O R E R E T W E E T S ( A N D TA K E 2 M I N U T E S O R L E S S )
  2. A f t e r u s i n g Tw i t t e r f o r a w h i l e , e v e r y o n e h a s t h e e x a c t s a m e q u e s t i o n …
  3. H O W D O Y O U G E T M O R E R E T W E E T S ?
  4. ANSWER!
  5. You have to do some work!
  6. You can’t just put anything out there and expect people to blindly pass it on. You have to actually make an effort.
  7. It’s different for celebrities. Their fans will happily share any old dross. ‘ s u p
  8. Big brands have a major advantage, too.
  9. But for common or garden folk like you and me, getting retweets takes a lot of work.
  10. But…
  11. There are some shortcuts!
  12. 1. Share unique and original content Everybody loves to retweet the new stuff.
  13. 2. Break news People retweet breaking news stories more than anything else on Twitter.
  14. 3. If you can’t be the first, be the first to make it interesting Put your unique spin on the story.
  15. 4. Give the people what they want
 Figure out exactly what it is that your Twitter followers expect to see from you. Give them that. Repeat.
  16. 5. Always upload a picture Tweets with images generate at least twice the engagement of text-only tweets. But only when you upload directly to Twitter.
  17. 6. Don’t talk about yourself all of the time Seriously, nobody cares about you. But they do care about themselves. So tweet about them.
  18. 7. Leave plenty of space Not everybody uses the Twitter retweet button. Many folks still like to add their own comments to retweets, sharing via the old- school RT @ or “quote tweet” method. Tip: start thinking of tweets as 100 characters or less. This leaves plenty of room for a link or an image, and some extra room for old-fashioned retweeting.
  19. 8. Retweet others Really, it has to work both ways.
  20. 9. Have a short and sensible username Twitter allows a maximum of 15 characters for usernames but the longer yours is, the more awkward it is for people to retweet your messages. No problem: you can change your username at any time.
  21. 10. Use #hashtags … otherwise it has a negative impact on retweets. But don’t use more than 1-2 at a time…
  22. 11. Use an exclamation point! Studies have shown that tweets that contain an exclamation point generate twice as many retweets as those without.
  23. 12. Including a link? Place it in the middle or the end of the tweet.
  24. 13. Ask Simply asking for a retweet can generate 3-4 times the amount of engagement. But you must use the word ‘retweet’ in full (not ‘RT’ or ‘R/T’).
  25. 14. Figure out when everybody is around Not much point tweeting to yourself.
  26. 15. Pay attention to spelling, 
 grammar and overall readability Typos, WRITING IN ALL CAPS or twtng n txt spk can dramatically reduce your retweet chances.
  27. Seriously, one tweet a day isn’t going to cut it. The more you tweet, the greater the chance your content will be seen and retweeted. Aim for at least 5 tweets per day. Every day. 16. Tweet a lot
  28. 17. Keep to a schedule Spread your tweets out over the entire day, and use Buffer or Hootsuite to plan your tweet calendar well in advance.
  29. 18. Stay on target Consistency goes a long way on Twitter. If people know what you’re about they’ll look out for your content and proactively retweet your best stuff.
  30. And remember…
  31. 19. If you aren’t getting the results that you expect… … change the formula!
  32. Now here’s the good news…
  33. If just one in every 100 of your followers retweets your stuff… … you’re doing better than almost everyone else on Twitter
  34. So…
  35. Let’s go to work.
