Site Promotion – How to Promote Your Website With a Strategic Tweeting System

So your site is sitting pretty and hardly anyone is coming for a visit? You can change that in a hurry. Read on to discover how to get traffic fast with strategic tweeting.

Twitter is great for getting fast traffic. However, in order to make this strategy work, you need to have a few things in place:

1) Your website or preferably a blog

A website with great content. Preferably a blog, actually, because blogs make constantly adding up-to-date content a piece of cake, and they also invite your visitors to get involved. And in this age of web 2.0, visitors like getting involved — if properly motivated.

2) EzineArticles

If you want to make your system more elaborate, add EzineArticles into the mix — that’s because most people on Twitter don’t really like it if all you do is send them to your blog. That can get old fast. But if you send them to informative articles, they may forgive you even if most of them are yours.

Note: Do send them to someone else’s article too on occasion. Some of those could be your friends’ articles (and you can do a round robin of returning favors for each other), and some of them could be articles you simply came across that you found really useful.

In fact, go looking for some of those and share them with your followers.

3) A URL abbreviator

And unless you have a really short and snappy website URL, be sure to use a link abbreviator. In fact, link abbreviators are helpful because you get to track your click-throughs. Do the same for your articles.

Just in case you’re new to link abbreviators… I like, which gives you click-through stats in real time, plus daily and weekly statistics as well.

But there are many others, including and so on. Before you settle on one in particular, test them out a few times. You want a URL abbreviator that will work very quickly. There are some out there that either work really slowly or, occasionally, don’t work at all.

Of course, you also need to make sure to type the URL in correctly.

How to put it together

Next, you put it together. You need to send out strategic tweets that get your followers to take you up on your offer, and ideally retweet your tweets to THEIR followers. But how do you get them to do that? Here’s how:

Start with keyword and/or an attention-getting short question or statement. Follow up with some more detail (maybe a tip?). And finally tell them where they can find the rest of the info, which is your link, of course, taking them either to your outstanding blog post or one of your EzineArticles.
