We have been talking a lot about Twitter lately, and if you have missed How to get more followers on Twitter, I highly recommend you to read it.
Twitter is one of the top 5 Traffic sources for ShoutMeLoud. I often get into a 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 a follower from different parts of the world and probably when you have tweeted your post, another side of the world may be sleeping, and you are missing a great amount of traffic. Moreover, 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 Should you tweet your blog post multiple times?
I work on simple strategy,
- If it’s a news post: I schedule it to be posted 2-3 times in next 24 hours.
- If it’s an evergreen post, I schedule it to be published atleast 7-8 times in next 50 days.
For daily tweet, make sure you do tweet other articles also. This is because your followers might get annoyed seeing same twitter updates multiple times. Eight-hour gap make sure that most of your followers won’t see the duplicate tweets.
Wondering how to repost same tweet multiple times?
There are many social media tools that allows you reposting the same content. This is a huge time saver for a blogger and busy marketers.
Here are three options for you:
- SocialPilot (Budget-friendly and easy to use)
- AgoraPulse ( Great features and perfect for marketers and agencies)
- Repost by Elokenz
Here is a screenshot of adding a repeated tweet using SocialPilot app.
Though, I suggest you to use Tools to find the best time to Tweet.
You can use many Twitter web tools to schedule your tweets. I use AgoraPulse 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.
