Getting retweeted is a great way to extend your influence online.
Retweets lead to more traffic, more followers, and more clout.
To maximize your retweet potential your best bet is to have a catchy headline, clean grammar, and some cool content to drive your tweet home.
Write a tactical tweet, and even if it lacks monumental importance, the science of retweeting will help it spread.
Write a bold tweet and there is a good chance that someone will retweet it.
By using powerful twitter tools and acting on the following ten tips you will get more followers and your tweets will be retweeted far and wide!
1. Install a Twitter button into your website/blog
Twitter recently launched the official Twitter tweet button, which I really like (you’ll notice it at the bottom of this post). Installing this button into your website makes it easy for people to retweet content on your page.
I like the official tweet button because it uses the custom url shortener t.co and because it gives you the option to suggest users for the person using it to follow after they tweet.
2. Message your friends and ask them to retweet you
If you have a tweet you want retweeted try sending a message to your friends asking them to retweet it for you.
You can message your friends with DM’s via twitter, with facebook, or even with good old email when asking for a retweet.
3. Repeat your best tweets
If you worked hard on a blog post that you know deserves some attention don’t be afraid to tweet it out a few times.
When you repeat your tweet, mix it up. Don’t tweet the exact same tweet every time. Re-word your tweet and you will appeal to different people each time you tweet it.
There are almost 100,000,000 tweets a day. It is harder than ever to get noticed these days, due to the sheer volume of tweets.
As long as you don’t spam, and add value, it’s fair game.
4. Say thanks!
When you start getting a ton of retweets it is difficult to thank everyone who retweets you, but if you notice that someone has retweeted you several times then take the time to say “thanks” and they will be more likely to retweet you again.
5. Use Backtweets
If you have a popular post that has gotten some retweets, there is a good chance that it will get retweeted by some people who will not mention your username.
Use backtweets to find everyone who has tweeted your link.
Thank these people for retweeting you and you will gain a new follower and friend that will probably retweet you again.
6. Build Retweeting Relationships
Promote the content of others more than you promote your own content. The ratio that Chris Brogan uses is 15 x 1, and it seems to work well for him. Help others get their message out and they will be much more likely to do the same for you.
7. Include @mentions to those referenced in your post
Include the twitter user name of others in your blog post, and then send a shout out to them on twitter letting them know.
There is a good chance that others will retweet your post when they find out they are in it!
8. Use www.pleaseRT.me
www.pleaseRT.me is not a very mainstream link shortening tool, but for that very reason it might net you a few more RT’s.
Use this url shortener and you will be seen as a savvy trendsetter.
9. Schedule your tweets for maximum effectiveness
I use Hootsuite to schedule my tweets, but tweet scheduling is built into several twitter apps, such as TweetDeck and TweetAdder.
By scheduling tweets you can ensure that your content will be sent out during peak times for maximum exposure, even if you are not there to manually tweet it.
Tweets scheduled in TweetAdder post as “from web” so it seems like you are tweeting them live.
10. Tweet Quotes
Take a minute and dig up some great quotes.
Great tweets seem to always retweet very well for me, and I’m sure they will do the same for you.
There are plenty of quotes websites online, and you can follow @GreatestQuotes and @Motivational for cool quotes on twitter.
