I recently posted that I was going to start using Twitter again because I had seen such a drastic drop in my numbers. Keep in mind that my numbers are low in general since I’m still a new blogger, but I thought this may be interesting to some of my fellow newbies. July 31st- August 2nd are after not using Twitter for about a week. As of August 3rd, there is a dramatic jump THE DAY that I started back up. Social media combined with regular posting makes a huge difference. I haven’t seen much of a change using Facebook or Bloglovin (in fact my numbers plain suck there), but Twitter has been an amazing tool for me.
Basic Twitter do’s: Play nice: follow people back and retweet interesting posts that others put up.
Share: tag authors with positive reviews and use #’s Picture perfect: put up a fun picture of yourself in your profile. Your friendly face is unique and upload a picture for each post. It draws attention. I often just scroll through my feed looking for photos that catch my eye.
Have fun: Use a little personality in your posts. There’s a reason why TV commercials use larger than life characters, humour, and catchy jingles. It draws you in and gives them a way to stand out and be remembered.
Hope this little snippet helps. Happy tweeting…and don’t forget to look me up while you’re there! @eclectic_books
