Just Retweet is a social sharing platform dedicated to helping you get more Retweets, +1
shares and Facebook “Likes” – but don’t confuse it with social media managers like HootSuite
For one thing, Just Retweet is adamant about:
It’s a fast way to boost your “social proof”. Part of the reason for this, no matter how new you
are to the social sharing scene: Just Retweet promises that “active users of the site will
automatically gain more followers”.
It has an affiliate program, featured member and V.I.P options… And it’s free.

Things You Need to Know
JustRetweet has its own requirements and rules, and it will simplify life if you learn these right
Works on a “credit” system. You start out with 100 and earn more by Retweeting
other JustRetweet member messages. (This means everyone is highly motivated to
Retweet your messages!)
Only posts containing URLS can be Retweeted, so you will need to sign up with an
URL shortener such as Bit.ly .
You cannot request Retweets for “sales pages, direct affiliate links, squeeze pages,
homepage links, and other overly promotional or low quality content” (they’ll be
You are allowed to submit a maximum of three Tweets in twenty-four hours. You
can use multiple Twitter accounts – but you cannot post Tweets to the same URL
from your other account. (Think of it as one URL per twenty-four hours.)
All Tweets must contain an URL
All signed up with an URL shortener? Right. Let’s begin.
There are three easy steps you’ll need to take, to get up and racing out of the starting gate:
1. Sign up
2. Post your Tweets
3. Acquire more followers.
So let’s not waste time wondering if this particular platform is right for you. Let’s just check it
out for ourselves.
And yes – JustRetweet does seem to be in flux (like so many social platforms – old and new –
these days) and some former features (such as “Retweet Exchange”) seem to be unavailable.
The important step to take is to just sign up and experiment – while you’re still in on the ground
Step One: Signing Up and Signing In
JustRetweet is based on a “credit” system – but these are not paid credits.
a) First you have to log in using your Twitter account from JustRetweet’s home page. Press
“Sign in with Twitter” button in the top right corner. (Don’t worry: JustRetweet won’t
be able to see your password.)
Enter your Twitter name and password.
You will be directed to a “Welcome” page, where you can create your account by
entering your email address.
You’ll be immediately redirected to your JustRetweet Dashboard, where you can see
different sections accessible by tab.
Step Two: Familiarize Yourself with JustRetweet Tabs,
Settings and Options
Let’s take a moment to acquire a quick overview of JustRetweet’s options and features by
exploring these tabs…
a) Twitter Followers – Here’s where you can find Featured Members, as well as other
types of Twitter Followers:
Note that, using a drop-down menu, you can filter these Submitter types by time frame
(E.g.: “Last 7 Days”.)
Begin selecting a few members to follow straight away, so you’ll have someone to
Retweet your posts – starting with JustRetweet itself.
b) Activity Summary – This is going to be a tab you’ll use a lot, once you’ve got a bunch
of Tweets posted via JustRetweet. You can filter the results by day and activity type:
You won’t have any activity to filter or look through, so go ahead and submit a Tweet.
c) Buy Credits – You are started off with 100 credits, which allows you to play around a
little and learn what works for you. When you fill out your profile under the next Tab
we’re going to visit, you can set a default amount of credits you are offering to promote
your Tweets as well as a time interval between Retweets.
There are four basic packages, which you can easily purchase through PayPal…
For now, let’s stick with your basic free 100 credits, to get you started.
d) Settings – This is an extremely important section. Here’s where you set up your blog
URL and specify other things you want to add to your profile, or change within your
Fill in your email address, and use the drop-down arrows to select your country and the
interval at which you’d like your Tweets to be Retweeted.
Leave “Credits Per Follow” at the default “2” for now, until you start getting a feel for
what works and what doesn’t.
Fill in your website Title, URL and a brief description containing your keywords.
You should now see a notification in bright green that your update was successful.
1. Affiliates – This link will take you directly to the Affiliates sub-site, where you can
familiarize yourself with how the program works by reading the Overview and FAQ
sections, taking a Tour, and signing up for it, if desired.
JustRetweet offers 30% commission.
Step Three: Write Your First Tweet
Now you’re ready to start submitting Tweets with URLS you want shared – and Retweeting
1. Get started by pressing the “submit a tweet” link. (Note that your 100 free credits
shows up here.)
2. Go to your Activity Summary Tab. Write a Tweet that (a) you’d really love people to
share (b) includes your shortened URL. (Note: Your URL doesn’t have to be
shortened: It’s just that you’ll leave more room for Retweets, if you shorten longer
Be sure to check the radio boxes for social networks you’d like to allow access via
JustRetweet. (Twitter will already be pre-selected.)
Note also that your submitted tweet “will be moderated before going live on site”, so
you will have to wait a while to see what your new Tweet shared via JustRetweet
Step Four: Retweet Other Members’ Tweets
And here’s the really important part – share other members’ Tweets.
1. Go to your Dashboard Tab and scroll down. You’ll see a tasty selection of Tweets
you can choose from.
Notice that you can:
Find optimized Tweets using the drop-down categories and keywords; or enter your
own unique search
Weight your Retweeting decisions based on the number of credits being offered for
a Retweet. (This should not be your primary decision maker.)
2. When you are ready, simply click on “Schedule Retweet” and JustRetweet will take
care of this automatically, based on the criteria given by the Tweeter in his or her
You can also choose to “Like” the Tweet you’ve selected on Facebook, as well as
pressing the “+1” button for Google Plus.
And that’s all there is to it!
Ten Tips for JustRetweet Success
JustRetweet is still in its early stages compared to other social media managers, so there are no
hard and fast rules – conditions for success fluctuate as the audience changes and grows:
However, there are seven tips that will most likely always stay evergreen for this platform…
1. Choose your Retweets carefully. Avoid the temptation to Retweet all and sundry,
or you’ll quickly gain the reputation as an “empty” Tweeter. Use aids such as
keywords, categories and custom search parameters to make sure each Retweet you
schedule is well-suited to your own audience.
2. Make sure you share your highest-quality content. If you want others – especially
other influencers in your niche – to Retweet you, make sure you’ve got something
worth Retweeting. This is your fastest way to becoming one of the top influencers
yourself – delighting not only your own audience, but that of people who Retweet
3. Don’t Retweet suspected spammers. You’ll easily sniff these out because you’ll see
their profile photo almost every second Tweet offered up for Retweet! Whether
they mean to spam or not, members with this type of volume will quickly become
someone (a) everyone is tired of (b) no one “sees” any more. The eye will skim over
their Twitter inbox-cluttering Retweets – and your own reputation will suffer for
aiding and abetting them.
4. Use hashtags. Vary your own Tweets by using hashtags every second or third post…
but keep it to three or under (otherwise you’ll create visual clutter and – more to the
point – your post will look “spammy”).
5. Tweet others. That’s obvious, of course – but sometimes it’s easy to get carried
away and neglect this vital part of using JustRetweet. (Besides, you’ll gain credits!)
6. Study the list of posts in your Dashboard. You can get a feel for:
What appeals to you
What repels you
How many credits people offer on average (TIP: The site founder, Valentine
Belonwu, offers 10 credits).
Types of posts to Retweet
Types of posts that are missing – ones that you would like to Retweet. (Then go
7. Consider paid options. This is not necessarily a recommendation: Some people find
purchasing options fast-tracks them; others set great value by building relationships
naturally. But do be aware the option is always there.
8. Consider becoming an affiliate, if affiliate marketing is part of your business model.
However, never let this affect the quality of your Tweets and Retweets: Rather, it
should heighten the quality and care you use in creation/selection.
9. “Follow” JustRetweet Members, as well as Retweeting their Tweets. There are
credit rewards to do so and you can keep an eye on your favorite Tweets from these
10. Remember platform is built primarily for bloggers. If you don’t have a blog, create
one now – and make the most of its advantages and benefits!
