5 Ways ‘TweetThis’ Increases Your Blog’s Exposure


No Material Connection Disclosure

 

Exposure. Finding a way to make sure your Blog is seen in as many places by as many people as possible. As a Blogger, the desire to increase our blog’s exposure is something I am sure we all have. Writing, Sharing, Supporting others are all ways to help bring more eyes back to our content but they aren’t the only ways. Your Readers can play a key role in increasing your exposure in a click and a tweet.

What is TweetThis?

PlugIns are available through WordPress to help add certain features, tools and unique designs to your site. tweetthis is one of those amazing Plugin that when added to your site allows you to offer your Reader specific quotes, points and phrases and more within your post in a simple to use share style hoping they choose to TweetThis and share with their own audience.

Once installed the tweetthis button will appear within your post dashboard as a cute little birdie. You simply click, insert your text for your post and then select Add Tweet This Box.

The Plugin gives you a preview of the Tweet as well as an estimated character count. I always test my tweets to be certain I have stayed within the Twitter 140 character limit. It can be easy to over-shoot because you have to account for both your handle as well as the post URL (in shortlink form).

Once you have inserted the tweetthis box that’s it! Your on your way to increasing your post’s exposure by giving your Readers a one-click option to share and spread the word about your content – just like this ↓

Highlight Key Points

I’ve often been in the midst of writing posts when I’ve known a certain point will be key to drawing in my audience. Before tweetthis I would just highlight them by underline, bold or italics. BORING. After  tweetthis, I can highlight those key points by offering my Reader a chance to share those points in one click.

Twitter is one of the biggest social media networks and it’s with good reason. In 140 characters you can  share your thoughts, reactions and tips as well as the direct link to the post you found them on. When a Reader shares a portion of your post on twitter it can draw new Readers in to click that link and find out what more is there. That my friends, is Exposure!

Spark Engagement

Key moments in a Blog post also spark engagement they draw the Reader in and most times encourage them to share. With tweetthis you can highlight those moments and offer your Reader an easy way to do it. With just a click they can share not only key points but your post as well.

Have you ever been reading a post and thought “Wow! This is a really good point! I should share it…” But then you think “I don’t feel like copy and pasting or opening a new tab to tweet.” Well that’s when tweetthis can become your Blog’s best tool.

See that right there? That is tweetthis in action! You Reader becomes engaged with your content and shares that engagement with their followers triggering a cycle of exposure.

Expose Your Blog To NEW Readers

As Readers hit that sweet little tweetthis button they send your content, your ideas and your blog to their followers – the eyes of a whole new set of potential readers.

 

Just think… if you have 1,000 Twitter Followers and they have 1,000 Twitter Followers you just increased your exposure by 100%! That’s the beauty of giving Readers an easy way to share content. Instead of simply noting how awesome something you said was and moving on they will share that reaction and give you a twitter presence you could not have achieved on your own.

Strengthen Your Twitter Presence

Right. Your Twitter presence can grow each time your Readers click a #tweetthis birdie giving not only your post but your Twitter – a larger and broader impact!

 

Twitter reads your influence by impressions, engagements, clicks and likes. How many people have seen your tweet, how many have shared it, clicked it and liked it. Each time a tweet from your post is shared, reshared, liked and seen by not only your followers but your followers’ followers (yup…I typed it right) you Twitter presence increases.

Custom Advertisement

As you see above, you can customize your tweet according to your post. Whether you want to share a quote, a tip or a bit of humor – it’s all up to you. You can approach your audience in whatever way you choose by composing your tweet your way.

The benefit of custom tweets is that you can add your Brand’s hashtag, post hashtags and even tag specific twitter accounts and in just one click your Reader can #TweetThis.

    Ooh, Tiffany! This is everything! I am choosing this post as one of my faves for Turn It Up Tuesday. I use the plugin on my blog, but your tips will allow me to take it to another level. Thank you for sharing.

    I personally love the Tweet This plug-in as well because of reasons that you've already mentioned! 😀 I also noticed that a lot of people like it for its efficiency — just one click; no need to open new tabs or whatnots.

  • Donna Ward

    I was using this great plug in as my blogging/social media coach had highly recommended it – but then found it was not compatible with my theme – so I have something similar that works better for me – because I fully agree with you!!

  • Mommy Hates Cooking

    One of my favorite things about WordPress is how customizable it is with all of the plugins. I'm always looking for different ways to increase promotion on my blog posts. TweetThis looks like a great addition!

  • Jen Lawrence

    I've had this on my to-do list for a while and just need to add it already! I'm sure it would be beneficial with Twitter being my favorite social media platform and largest audience out of my social media channels. My Goal: Do it before the end of the week! Thank you for sharing!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Yay! It is really one of the best ways I’ve found to further my reach and increase engagement all in one shot. Even if you only insert 1 per post it’s so worth it. Let me know if you have any questions! I can’t wait to see and share your first TweetThis 😀

  • Censie

    Thank you for sharing this. I have been trying to use my twitter more and get more engagement. I have not used Tweet this before, looks like i need to add this to my to do list.

  • Gwendolyn Mulholland

    I love seeing these in posts because it helps me to interact as share information from that post quickly. However, I have yet to set it up on my blog. This is going on my To Do List and I appreciate you taking the time to explain the way it helps. Saved this to Pinterest so I don't forget.

    • MrsTee Post author

      I do too…that’s how I first came across it. I did a bit of research and found out how to add it to my own set of assets. Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions I haven’t covered! Thanks so much – I appreciated the Pin support 😀

      Me Too!! That’s actually how I first discovered it. I think it may have been a different version but the basic idea was the same. It’s such a great way to enhance your posts! Thanks for coming by!
