Are Your Tweets Getting Replies or Retweets?

If not, you’re not alone; fortunately these methods may help

According to Sysomos, a maker of social media analysis tools, 71% of all tweets receive no reply or retweet. This information was released in a recent article from Mashable.

If your audience doesn’t share your tweets, you aren’t alone. Now that 71% probably includes a slew of tweets that can be considered as non-sense. I’m sure you’ve seen the tweets I’m referring to; “just made myself a turkey sandwich” would be a good example of one. It’s fluff, there’s no real substance.

But for those that aim to share real content, here are a few methods for getting retweets that our Social Media Specialist Amanda MacArthur wrote about earlier this month.

According to the article, adding, “Please retweet” and other similar phrases like “check out…” and “help me” are often found in successfully retweeted tweets.

Furthermore, adding your copywriting skills to tweets can help greatly. Engage the audience, appeal to their self-interests or make them an offer they can refuse in order to get a retweet.

Finally, understand the type of tweets that do get passed out. Newsworthy and entertaining tweets are interesting to people. The same goes for instructional content, freebies, contests and warnings about consumer issues.
