One of the greatest things about Twitter and other social platforms is the ability to go viral. Your tweet can be shared by people over and over again and bring in thousands of new visitors. Here are a few ways of getting people to share your content on Twitter.
Get People to Retweet You
Getting people to retweet you can be as simple as including a "Please RT" in your messages. However, this works best when your content is truly something that your followers would find interesting enough to send to their own followers.
An even better way of getting people to retweet you is by offering a reward for doing so. For example, if you sell t-shirts, you can give out free t-shirts to 10 random people who retweet you to a friend. This is a great way to get more exposure and followers.
Use a Click To Tweet Plugin
Use a click to tweet plugin to get your users to share your content on Twitter. Carefully choose a line or quote from your article that users will be likely to enjoy and share. Set it up so that when they click that button, your own Twitter @username is included, along with your blog URL.
Use Social Sharing Buttons
Use social sharing buttons on your site. To maximize their effect, make them conscious and include a tagline encouraging people to share. You can also include a count of the number of times your blog has been tweeted -- social proof always works to encourage more sharing.
You can also use a plugin such as SumoMe that will allow visitors to share individual images on your site.
