By offering a way that your blog readers can follow you on Twitter you are giving them access to regular updates that will hold their interests until you can get your next blog post published. This was especially useful to me and it even decreased how many feed subscribers I was losing sense I normally just publish one post per day.
So here are some tips for doing just that:
Tip #1 – Place a widget on your blog that displays your recent tweets. That way if your audience stops by your blog and there are no new posts, they will still have new content to check out until you have a chance to publish your new posts.
Tip #2 – Place a Twitter button on your blog. This will allow your visitors or readers to follow you on Twitter with the click of a button. It is much easier for them to simply click a button then to go to the Twitter website and try to find you. And make sure you place it in a spot where it is visible to everybody, because if they can’t find it they won’t subscribe.
Tip #3 – Install plugins that will automatically publish your posts to Twitter. There are tons of WordPress plugins that you can work with, it is just a matter of find one that works best for you. This can keep you from wasting a whole lot of time traveling between websites and posting your links.
Tip #4 – Let your readers know how many people are following you. If you have 100 or more people following you on Twitter then you need to place a counter on your blog. This will encourage the newbies that come by your blog to follow you on Twitter.
Tip #5 – If you sell products on your blog, give away discounts through Twitter. This can be easily done using TwtQpon which allows you to generate your own unique coupon for your products and send them out to your followers. This help you to gain followers because they will want to be updated on any discounts you offer, and they would have to use the coupon on your blog. So it’s a win-win situation.
These are some really simple tips that can really pull some results for you. In fact, if you put them into motion right now you may start to see an increase in followers by the end of the day.
