With so many tweets being delivered to every Twitter user, it can be difficult to get your tweets seen and clicked. Twitter has 320 million current active users and growing so it’s no wonder why the average Twitter user’s tweets aren’t seen (but you’re not average).
But done correctly, Twitter can still be a great source of traffic.
And as you know, if your Tweets aren’t driving traffic, then they’re not doing you or your business much good.
That’s why I’ve compiled this list of 15 ways to get your Tweets seen and clicked on by your followers.
1: Add Images
Did you know that tweets with images receive 18% more click-throughs, 89% more favorites and 150% more retweets?
And you can create multiple images for each blog post, using attractive colors, centered headlines and interesting textures.
Posing questions to your followers is an effective way to engage people.
Be sure to follow up with everyone who answers you so they know you’re listening.
And you can always highlight answers by retweeting them with your response, keeping them alive and inspiring even more interaction.
10: Use Polls
Twitter Polls are a great tool for attracting attention and engaging followers.
Click the “Add poll” icon beneath the tweet box, add up to four questions, and choose how long you want your poll to run.
11: Thank Profusely and Often
When your fellow tweeters have promoted your content or even contributed to it, thank them. This makes you look like a really nice person, plus it’s great for building relationships.
12: Use @ to Get Specific Attention
If you want someone specific to see your tweet, mention them by including their username preceded by the @ symbol.
13: Use an Image to Grab Group Attention
If you want to get the attention of a group of people, include an image in your tweet. Then when Twitter prompts you with “Who’s in this photo?” you can tag the image with up to 10 users without affecting your character count.
14: Use Twitter Cards
Twitter cards let you include additional media types – such as images, videos, audio and download links – in your tweets.
