Why you Should Tweet your Post Multiple Times?

Multiple TweetsWe have been talking a lot about Twitter lately and if you have missed How to get more followers on Twitter, I highly recommedn you to read it. Twitter is one of the top 5 Traffic source for ShoutMeLoud. I often get into discussion with my fellow bloggers on the way of tweeting the post. Most common question I was asked is : Is it good to tweet your post multiple times or just tweet it once ? .

I always suggest and recommend to tweet your blog post multiple times. As followers you have on twitter are from different time-zone and you have to make sure that your tweet is reachable to most of the people who are following you.

You have follower from different parts of the world and probably when you have tweeted your post, other side of world may be sleeping and you are missing a great amount of traffic. More over your readers are missing a useful blog post. For example, I have most of the followers from India and U.S and I have different effective time for sending tweets to target both the country followers. This is also similar to sending Email at the best time.

How you Should tweet your blog post multiple time?

I work on simple strategy and that is tweeting single post multiple times in a day. I tweet maximum 3 times any single post in a given day. I maintain a gap of 8 hours before tweeting the same article and make sure in between I have tweeted other articles also. This is because your followers might get annoyed seeing same twitter updates multiple time. Eight hour gap make sure that most of your followers won’t see the duplicate tweets.

Though, I suggest you to use Tools to find best time to Tweet and use it with Bufferapp account and add such Tweets into buffer. I usually use Tweet button to send first tweet and add the post again in Buffer stack, this ensure that tweet will be send out again and will reach out to maximum people.

You can use of many twitter web tools to schedule your tweets. I personally use Hootsuite for this purpose. You can also make most out of it be scheduling the same tweet after every 7-10 days. This will make sure your old posts will keep getting traffic. Meanwhile you can also follow me on my personal twitter profile @denharsh to connect with me.

Do you tweet your single post multiple times or you tweet once and leave the rest for your readers?

    Hi Harsh

    Tweeting a post multiple times is best option for base articles and not for all.

  • jon

    I think tweeting a new post a second time is ok but tweeting out posts that are old is a definite no in my book. i would unfollow anyone who did so, there is promoting your content and then there is overselling it.

  • Harshad

    Tweeting a post multiple times in a day is good strategy to bring traffic from different countries, but we need to make sure that it should not look like spam tweets. I have used this strategy with my blog and it definitely works!

  • Uttoran Sen

    i have never thought of re-tweeting my tweets more than once, this is a good idea for sending traffic to old articles :)

  • Malhar @ MyTFace

    I follow the strategy of tweeting tweets from different category. Keeping variation in tweets will help getting your followers attention.

  • Technologian

    I think 2 tweets for a single post in a day will work better. First, to avoid multiple tweets of the same link. Secondly, you still have the option og using other micro-blogging platform to get inorganic traffic…

  • Anil Gupta

    Interesting thoughts about Retweeting. Before going through your article, I was tweeting my blog post once only, but now I’m thinking of doing it multiple times may be 2-3 times for some of popular posts on my blog.

  • Ilija Brajkovic

    I also tweet 3-4 times per day, it think it’s not too much, and it’s definitely very useful.

  • Vijay

    Now I know the reason, why your updates comes multiple times. Initially I thought I have read somewhere…

    Nice tip.

  • Saksham Talwar

    Great article friend! I will try HootSuite now!

  • Dana

    Hem — i just know about it, i will try . And it give me an idea that we should tweet our old post.

  • Avi Singh

    Yups Thats a very good strategy..
    And yes If you want to tweet a post multiple times in day, then you can use service like hootsuite which provides you scheduling option.
    You can schedule a same tweet multiple times a day.

  • Tushar

    i was skeptical about tweeting my own posts….but you gave a good strategy to follow

  • Karen

    I’m not too sure if this is on the fine line of spamming your followers, if they see the same thing over and over again they are going to unfollow you like a shot!

    • Harsh Agrawal

      Karen It depends how we take it. For example when I work I stay online for 8-10 hours and after that I’m gone. And similarly after 8 hours your followers from other zone come online and they must have missed your updates which you have made earlier. Retweeting will make sure that your followers will not miss that update.

  • Sagar

    That was a healty tip!
    I re tweet my older posts every week but didn’t repeated the posting of tweet every 8 hours..

    Will surely follow it.

    • Harsh Agrawal

      Sagar even retweeting your post every week is a good advice as you will keep driving traffic to your old posts. Even I do that and my upcoming post is based on it :)

  • Pubudu Kodikara

    I agree with you mate! but we should not over do it, so our followers may get irritated! :D

  • Avinash

    Harsh, Nice Strategy will try this out in the next few days, also having more followers also helps increase the reach in this strategy.

    • Harsh Agrawal

      I’m sure it will help..but don’t over do it and make sure to include hashtag into your tweet keywords.
