Twitter is a social network to which every web publisher looks up to gain maximum exposure. Getting your content “Retweeted” on Twitter can drive significant quality traffic to your site, which in turn can boost your subscriber numbers. This may help you to go viral on internet and gain maximum popularity. Take a look at these 7 steps you need to take into account to go viral on Twitter.
Call to Action:
The best way to get your update retweeted by your followers is to simply ask them. Just ask your followers to retweet your post to their followers. People will not retweet your content easily unless you tell them to do so. So use some common call to action words in your post to get high retweets such as Please, Check out.., Please vote, Help me etc. No sooner did they retweeted your post than the ‘viral’ snowball started rolling.
Timing is the most important point to consider if you want your content to go viral on Twitter. Researches have shown there is a window of time during which sharing occurs more often. Time of day also seems important for retweeting. First few days of the business week within 9 am to 6 pm is the best time to get more retweets. Tweriod and Buffer are the applications that you can use in this case.
Providing links to your post and updates helps it to get retweeted at a very fast rate. This is a helpful for those who want to spread their off-Twitter content. Links are an important constituent for a viral retweetable content.
Strike potential and knowledgeable influencers:
People tend to retweet a post that has been tweeted by a person having a significant amount of knowledge in that genre. I would definitely want to retweet a post written by Matt Cutts. Impress knowledgeable influencers and convince a few of them to retweet your post. So in this way you can grow your organic tweeting.
Providing valuable content to your followers will supplement the chances of retweeting. Therefore, give valuable and informational content as your followers would definitely want to share this information. Resourceful posts, News, and mainly contests work very well in Twitter.
No one is even going to take a look at your post unless you have a catchy headline. Headlines are the first thing that catches readers’ eye. Intriguing headlines automatically attracts more retweets.
