With the rise in the number of social media platforms, we must use the right tools to get the most out of it. Here at ShoutMeLoud, I share a lot of social media tools and hacks that you can use to improve your social media marketing. Today’s post is about one service that I have been using for the past couple of years and it is needless to say that I am mighty impressed!

This is a Twitter-related service called ClickToTweet and it creates a clickable link that users can use to share anything on Twitter with one click. Recently, they released a Chrome extension which has only made this service even simpler.

What is ClickToTweet?

It’s a web app that is helpful for agencies and digital marketers for sharing links with others to get more tweets. Let me explain this with an example.

Suppose I want my readers to tweet this text:

“An Epic collection of 100+ #Blogging tools worth bookmarking: https://www.shoutmeloud.com/blogging-tools-mega-collection.html via @shoutmeloud #Blogger”

I can paste it like this and ask them to share which is handy but not very effective for everyone. With ClickToTweet, I can create a single link, which when clicked, will take users to their Twitter account and they can quickly share it on Twitter.

For example https://clicktotweet.com/34lfn

Clicking on the link above will take you to this (You can click to try and also share since the article is worth sharing)

Got it?

Well, this is a service that is worth bookmarking and with the new chrome extension, creating a Tweetable link is an absolute breeze.

The ClicktoTweet service offers a dashboard where you can create such links and also see the performance of earlier created Tweetable links.

To create a new tweetable link, simply use the message you would like tweeted box to compose your tweet and click on Generate New Link. If you are adding a link to a webpage along with your message, you have the option to track click stats and also shorten the URL from the compose area.

To tweet the above message, simply click on the link below and you will see it in action:

Isn’t it a cool Twitter hack?

How I use the ClickToTweet service:

There are many practical use cases of ClickToTweet, but there is one way I use this service to avail its benefits.

When users join a course:

I usually create a link for users to share when they join any of my free courses. This has a ripple effect and helps me get new users as well. The key here is the message that you type to ensure your tweet copy is something worth sharing.

In email blasts:

When I send an email newsletter about a new blog post, I often encourage my readers to share it on Twitter. I make it easier for them by using such clickable links and so far I have seen significant results with this practice. With the ClickToTweet chrome extension, now it’s actually easier to create such tweetable links. If you are a reader of ShoutMeLoud newsletters, you would see it in practice more often in times to come.

Influencer marketing:

An agency that hires an influencer marketer to tweet branded content can also use this service to give them a link to tweet without any error. Easy-peasy!

Over to you.

Overall, this is an interesting and useful Twitter-based service that should be in your bookmark. They do have a pro version too but it is recommended for agencies. For a blogger and an influencer, the basic version offers all useful features which you may need.

    Perfect timing.
    I have been using this quite a bit on my own blog to increase traffic from Twitter.
