5 Simple Steps to Going Viral on Twitter

Going Viral!

Successful viral marketing on Twitter is not as simple as many assume, however, with the right guidelines and steps, it can be done and bring about a rewarding outcome!

Therefore, for today’s post, I will be sharing you 5 simple steps to going viral on Twitter:

1. Call on Action:

Don’t take retweeting, or lack of it, lightly. An RT is a way to show your Twitter friends and followers that you care about them and about the content they share with you. If retweeting is the action you wish your readers to take, the best way to persuade people to do it is to motivate them to by asking or offering incentives. When tweeps retweets your content, they’re very likely to also repost your call to action, lending it their credibility and influence.

However, make sure you do mix it up with other types of tweets now and then and do not spam your followers with ads! Continue reading »

Recently, we came across an interesting post by Soren Gordhamer in which answers a very important question when using tools such as Tweepi “When do we decide to unfollow or no longer receive another user’s updates?”

Here is what Soren has to say as a response to this infamous question:

1. Update Overload – Hold Back on the Posts, Please!

I want to know what people are doing and thinking, but I do not want to hear every little thing. If someone discovers fifteen news items a day, I would rather they put some time and thought into choosing the best three to post, instead of submitting all fifteen.

Short updates (or tweets) on social networks like Twitter allow us to do something quite phenomenal: we can now quickly and easily transfer small amounts of data from our mind into someone else’s. Large numbers of tweets often reveals that someone gives little consideration to this privilege, and as a result easily overwhelms others with information.

I generally find that if a person regularly posts more than five times a day, it is more information than I am interested in consuming, and I tend to inflow. Continue reading »
