Cornerstones of driving traffic to your blog from Twitter 

Driving traffic to your blog is not nuclear science, especially when social media platforms attract this many people. You can start bit by bit. For instance, share the link to your blog among your Twitter friends and relatives. Subsequently, it will move beyond your close circle. 

What is important is to turn blogging and its promotion into a habit! Do it on a daily, weekly basis! 

Tweeting and retweeting is not a sin. 

Thank God Twitter hasn’t put any ban on our account, so make use of this opportunity! 

Imagine you have written a blog post about global warming – a trending topic. Therefore, you will find many popular hashtags to add to your tweet! In your tweets, don’t forget to mention celebrities, professors, politicians, or anyone famous for their work in this domain.

On the day of publishing, draft 3-5 tweets linked to the blog post that you will be sharing at different times during the day. 

What I like to do is to extract quotes from the writing and build my tweets around it! Also, data shows that quotes are receiving 50% more retweets

But there’s a kicker, and can you guess what it is?

Your overall Twitter activity and impression plays a crucial role for your content to reach out to a broader audience. It would be best if you were friendly to everyone:

  • Like others’ activity
  • Join the discussions under the tweets of others;
  • Retweet others’ tweets;

I assure you that the Twitter community is amicable too. If you’re active under someone else’s tweet, wait for the reciprocity. 

Additionally, you can be straightforward and ask others to retweet your tweet. Finally, don’t forget to mention and thank those who engaged with your tweet in any form. 

Oh, wait, how could I forget?!

Please, be intriguing in your tweets! In that case, you will entice followers to go beyond your mere tweet and check all the text in your blog!

Repurposing your blog content

“Rome was not built in a day,” they say! So it would be best if you continuously work on your blog’s content to adapt it to Twitter. In other words:

  • Look for popular keywords on Twitter and use them in your blog post;
  • Use infographics, tables, statistical analysis in your blogpost;
  • Employ more visuals, such as videos and images;
  • Organise interviews on your blogs with celebrities and share them;

And the good news?

The above content is loved on Twitter. Thus, use it to get more engagements! 

If you are not a guru in visuals, you can use platforms like Canva to design your images. Also, look into Fiverr to find someone who will create colourful content for a symbolic payment.

Another critical point is to find trendy keywords and topics to express your uniqueness. Believe me, it is possible!  Just go to Google Trends to match your interests with the trends. Ultimately, you will see increased interest when you share it on Twitter.
