Then you can just sit back and let the millions come rolling in.
Yep. If only there's some way you could make it easy for people to share your great article or blog post with the masses…on twitter.
Well that’s exactly what we’re going to show you how to do.
Alright, you’re gonna to go the site clicktotweet.com. clicktotweet.com is one of the easiest ways to promote your content on Twitter, by letting others spread the word for you. They don’t need to think about or write anything – just click on a link and your message is shared by them on Twitter quickly and easily. And you get another 3rd party endorsement. Which is key and social media marketing, the effective social media marketing.
There are other tools out there as well yet this is one that we like and use. So first you login to click to tweet with your twitter account. And you see this page, sign in with twitter to get started. Then you go ahead, you log in with your same twitter info. And that’s how you use it. So no need to set up an account or anything, you just use your standard twitter log in information.
Next, you write your tweet, you know we're gonna promote your article, webinar, your latest product, etc. like this one here. It says 'Behold the world's most AWESOME article @SMTopTeam' then the link. So, that's how you do it. So, now, let's go back here..and let's do, let's put this thing..i guess it would help if i just grab the message. Now, here's one cool things. You notice there is a URL. This URL to the blogpost that we are gonna be promoting. Watch what clicktotweet does. So, we paste it in here, paste the message in there and...we wanna check the box that says 'Track click stats' and 'Track links in this tweet'. Because what will happen is it will actually track all the clicks on this link. So for the people who share it, the people who click on the link here, it'll actually track it and show it in your analytics. So we have it in there, we're gonna click on 'Generate New Link'. And it works as magic, it does what it does, and then when it finishes, generating the new link. It looks like this. The first you see is the tweet preview here, and right here you see it shorten the url. Now underneath of it, is the embed code, so if you don't want an image, this is what you're gonna paste into your website or your blog post,..the code. If you don't want an image, you just want to link and the link will then say, it'll say with the words 'Tweet: Behold the world's most AWESOME article' and you'll have the link..they won't see that..you can use that. If you want an image, you see you get the embed code for that. So we can just scroll across we can choose from this. Let's go for this one, little cute birdie. And you see it has the embed code. So we're gonna click here it says 'copy code' bam!! the code has been copied.
Now before we go on pasted, let's take a look down here. You see, remember before we clicked on that link that said to track the links. Were here actually it tracks it. You see, everyday, when people are sharing, also you're posting now, even 30 days from now, people are reading your great article, your video, your webinar and your sharing and other people are clicking on it. Clicking on the link to go, and read on the blog from selves, it will register here. And you will be able to come back and track the links, and how many daily clicks that you get. This is all for FREE!
Ok so we have the code, so let's go inside and let's paste this now into the blog post. And this is the blog post we're gonna paste..this is what we do awhile ago..google page and link juice what is it and how to check it. And you see right now. There is nothing at the end of the post. So, we're gonna go in here to the editor, this is the same post and we're gonna click in here. At the bottom, go to where it says HTML...don't freak out! Don't let this startled you...So, just go down here and we're gonna click paste. That's all paste. We're gonna go back here where it says 'Compose'. And all is well...Ok so look at that! Look at the cute little birdie. Right there, that says tweet this, and all we do now is to click 'Update'. And it's updated. And let's now refresh the article of the post and let's see how this looks. And look at that, that cute little bird. They come out here, and they say 'oh it's awesome article, i have to share it with hundreds and thousands of people' And all they do, you see that? hyperlink, all they do is click on the image now and another window opens up, and that window looks just like this. So you click on it and BAM! and inside your tweet auto-populate in this field. Now they can go in it and change it, they can put their name, they can do something where you know, they could re-tweet and put it whatever there or put their name, with their name is, right there it could do the same thing. And they can customize, it's the whole point, that’s why it does that. And all they do is type in their username and their password. And click on sign in and tweet. And once they do that they automatically logs in and tweet and then bamm!!!! hundreds or thousands of people now have this tweet in your twitter feed. And your clicking on that link, checking out your article, your blog post, your video, your webinar, your new product or your new service.
And that's it . It's FREE. It's awesome, and it's a great tool to use when you are starting out.
Remember a few last small business social media marketing tips to get the most out of this social media strategy.
One. Put your share links at the end of your post or WITHIN the article or special offer itself. We see here, we put the share link at the end of this post yet you could also put it within the post in various places, sometimes you may have 3 to 10 page article. You think you just want to wait to the every end of the post with your share link there? You wanna have those MTA's, somebody call them CTA's,'call the acts'.. we actually call them MTA's..motivate to act..we can't call someone to act, we can motivate then to act..so you think put MTA's at various places throughout the article. So if they are reading your article, reads your pages and they're loving it, they may not wait til the end and share, They may not read your article all the way to the end. So throughout the article, you may have, your share links there! So they'll read through they'll click boomm! and they'll share. They don't need to read your whole article, know that its good,. and know that they wanted to share it with people.
Number two.Include a link within your tweet where people can find out more information about what you’re marketing. That's what you see we do it here. So in the tweet itself. There's a link. So when they see the tweet in your twitter feed, they can click on it and go back and see more either read the article, after video, your webinar, your new services or product.
Also remember to include your @ name in the tweet so you know who used it, and this also makes it easier for you to think and track it. Oftentimes, when people tweet your @ name on twitter, twitter lets you know that someone mentions you on twitter. That say, hey you're mentioned on twitter and you'll go an look and see the people you mentioned your @name. And this way, you wanna always reply 'Thank you' and again this is how you form those relation or connections online. In addition, with regards of what analytic software you are using, this is how the analytics are able to track that is you. And also gives you a social signal as well. When you do it this way.
Lastly, remember to send your link around to your contacts to tweet it for you. So, that's same share link that we embedded in the blog. You wanna send it around to your inter circle, you know, your colleagues, your buddies your friends, and have them tweet it for you to get the ball rolling.
Now here is a very important tip to know if you are serious about making money from this social media stuff. A lot of small businesses want to leverage social media marketing to get more customers for their business yet what happens is they really don’t know how to do it. You know they do articles online, and different videos and nobody tells them how to make money with it. So they contact some social media marketing company or coach who has them posting all of this content, investing a lot of time and ultimately they still don’t make any more money. The reason why is most social media marketing companies don’t know how to generate ACTUAL leads from social media marketing. What they specialize in is social media management. You'll see it in your website and you listen to the measures talking Which is posting your content, replying to posts, tracking your analytics, etc. Whenever you actually ask them directly how they are going to get you more customers with their services, they stammer and stutter and then almost always answer “We use search engine optimization and Pay per click along with your social media campaign.”
