Increase the Effectiveness of your Tweets

Let me just start off by saying that in this post I am simply sharing the information I have found. I am in the process of creating a plan to increase my click through rate, as frankly it sucks right now :)

But I wanted to share with you the information I have found, so that you too may be able to increase your click through rate. Please note, this graphic links back to the original author's blog.





Main pointers here:
- Tweets should be between 120-130 Characters
- Links should be 25% into the the tweet. Or if you look closely at the end also does well
- Tweet once per hour for a good return
- Some words get a higher click through than others: Via, @, Retweet, Please, Check, ect
- Action verbs result in click action
- Weekend tweets get a good return
- Good Tweet times. 8-10am, 1-3pm, 8-10pm (from the graph)

I will post others later. However I am collecting an extensive pinterest board of this information. If you would like to follow along, you can follow at  http://pinterest.com/aprilwilliams

  2. Great points! Have read some of the same things somewhere else. Also that shortening your links with bitly (or one of the others) helps. Short and sweet

  3. Great info! Thanks!

    I have found that I get more views on tweets early in the morning or after 5:00PM CST. I also found that treasuries and Collections get more views about 9:30PM CST. (Thank goodness for the iPad!)

    Sam from swag store asked that everyone pray for her family. (No details)
