Twitter is my favorite social network on the web. When utilized properly, Twitter can become a powerful way for you to get more traffic. Most of the people who visit my blog come from Twitter. In a given day, more than 50% of the people who visit my blog came from Twitter. I am going to share with you how I was able to go from getting 0 visitors on my blog from Twitter to getting hundreds of daily visitors just from Twitter alone.
There are three main components that allowed me to see a big transformation in my blog’s traffic, my books’ sales, and my blog’s Alexa rank. The first component towards my blog’s success on Twitter was that I decided to follow targeted followers instead of just following anyone on Twitter. I am not “following random people.” I am following people who are already interested in what I tweet about before they click the follow button. This has led to me making strong connections with renowned entrepreneurs and social media experts.
The second component towards my blog’s success on Twitter is that I sent out tweets at a frequent and consistent pace. Every 30 minutes, I send out a tweet. I send out tweets in the middle of the day, but I also send them out on midnight. If it is midnight at one location, it is the middle of the day in another location. I was amazed when someone tweeted that he would be going to bed at around 6 pm. Then, I realized that person lived in another continent and that 6 pm was really 11 pm where that person lives.
The third component towards my blog’s success on Twitter is being persistent. Doing this for one day will not bring forth a dramatic change. You will most likely experience a big change on the first day you implement these tactics, but then it may take months of consistently following targeted people and scheduling tweets until you see the next dramatic rise in traffic. I am assure you that each dramatic rise in traffic that you experience is better than the last.
