Why Click to Tweet?
Have you been using Click to Tweet in your blogs and newsletters? You may have noticed my images that have text and then “Click to Tweet” with Larry the Twitter Bird at the bottom. It’s important to use for two reasons: readability and increasing engagement.
First, it is a great to use in your blog or website so that you can break up the content and make it a little more readable. Have you ever been to a website that just had paragraphs and paragraphs of text to look and then just left because it looked long and boring? Click to Tweet can help break up the text and make it much more readable and enjoyable experience for your readers.
We read lots of great information online and sometimes we share it and sometimes we don’t think about sharing. Adding a Click to Tweet image and link gives your audience something right in front of them to tweet so they don’t have to think about it much and it’s already done for them. They are more likely to tweet and share your information online if it’s made super easy for them!
Click to Tweet Reminders
Remember when creating your link to include the text that you want to be tweeted, your Twitter username and a link to your blog. These are the primary components you don’t want to forget. And remember, when someone tweets it and mentions you, interact on Twitter with them! Like the tweet and reply thanking them for tweeting it.
Click to Tweet Tutorial
Last week I showed you how to create an image using Canva. I typically use a 600 x 100 size image, but you can use whatever fits into your blog post. In this week’s video, I show you how to create a link that will open in Twitter and have everything ready for your readers to share just like my image above. Click to Tweet has a free version you can start using immediately.
I have a free checklist in at the end of the video to create your click to tweet link.
