So, What are Re-Tweets? Re-Tweets is when someone writes a Tweet to their followers and then one of those followers re-sends that tweet to their own followers. It doesn’t sound like much at first glance, but consider this scenario; You tweet to your 500 followers. One of those followers re-tweets it to their 5000 followers. One of their followers retweets it out to their 200,000 followers. Whatever you tweeted to your followers is now exposed to 205,000 people in this scenario. Actually more, since chances are that more than just one of these followers re-tweeted it.

Do you see the power of re-tweet? When you tweet something that others see as worthy to be shared with their followers, your material is exposed to many other people, who may in turn follow you, and in time, go to your other sites.

So how do we go about having our tweets re-tweeted more often? Here are a few basic steps to help increase your re-tweets.

1. Re-Tweet Others Tweets!

If you expect to have people re-tweet your tweets, then you have to be re-tweeting yourself. What goes around comes around. As you find someone has tweeted something useful, share it with your followers.

The more you re-tweet other peoples tweets, the more others will share your tweets with their followers. If you like something, retweet it. Of course, keep balance in how much you retweet; don’t spam. So, Re-tweet others.

2. Don’t use Tweeter’s Built in Retweet Link.

Twitter has a built in Retweet link under each tweet. Don’t Use it! Use the “traditional” method of Retweeting. This “traditional” method is where you copy the first tweet as a new tweet and paste it into a new tweet. You preference it with “RT @username” with username being the username of the one who tweeted it before you. There is a space between RT and @, but not between @ and username.

It would look like this:

RT @johndoe This was the original tweet by John Doe Twitter user. www.johndoe.somewhere

Why use the “traditional” method. By putting the first person’s Twitter name in the retweet, you are publicly recognizing them. You are introducing this other person to your followers. You are raising their worth in the eyes of your followers.

If you use Twitter’s built in Retweet process, it does not allow you to edit the tweet as coming from you and recognizing the first person. This is a big difference. So use the “traditional” method of retweeting.

3. Make your Tweets Re-Tweetable.

If you want to be retweeted, then your tweets need to be worth retweeting. Make sense? Tweet things that others would want to share with their followers.

When someone retweets what you tweeted, they are telling their followers that they approve of what you wrote. For someone with lots of followers, say, 100,000, they will probably think twice before sharing a tweet from someone else. So make your tweets worthy of being retweeted.

Keep your tweets short. If you fill up the characters allowed in a tweet, it’s hard for someone to retweet it and add your username.  Make the content good, worthy of being passed on to others.

These are just a few simple tips to help increase you Twitter success. Use these simple tips to increase your material being retweeted by others.

Here’s to Your Re-Tweeting Success!

Beginner’s Guide to Online Business Success!

A Beginners Guide to Starting and Succeeding in Online Business.

If you’re new in this Internet Marketing thing, you may be scratching your head trying to figure out, what actual steps do I take to succeed? Even if you are not new, you may be trying to find ways to get your online business moving ahead at a faster pace.

Sometimes we just want to know the simple, do this, then do that, steps to building our business successfully. For me that was a big issue, especially when trying to market with traditional network marketing, mlm methods. I was told to write out my goals, and contact my friends and family, but after that I wasn’t given good specifics on how to grow my business further in an effective way.

I’d like to share some simple tips to growing your business; Some specific, take this action type things. These are some simple actions that if taken day after day can greatly boost your business success. I’m not going to cover the details of how to do the action, but instead, what action to do. There is much information available giving specifics of starting a blog, for example. Here I’m giving the action steps.

I preference these points with my own admission that I haven’t always stuck to my own schedule with doing these actions steps; but when I do stick to them, I see results. When I fall short, I try to get back in the game as quickly as possible, and back into the rhythm of doing these action steps every day.

I also preference it with the point that these are simple steps, but not necessarily easy to put into practice, in the aspect that it takes determination and persistence to do them regularly. But when you do them regularly, you will see results.

Here are my 4 simple steps to online business success.

 

1. Produce Content Every Day

What does that mean? Write a blog post every day, if blogging is what you are focusing on. Post a video on Youtube. Write an article. Whatever the methods you are using to put yourself out there on the Internet, put something out every day. You may write a blog one day, make a video another day and write an article another day. The point is produce some form of content every day.

If you produce content every day, in one month you will have 30 items on the Internet. By the end of 3 months, you’ll have close to 100 items on the Internet. Just think, after one year, you’ll have over 350 items on the web. Every item you put out on the web, gives you that much more chance of being found.

As you link these items together; for example, putting your blog address in your articles or in the description of your videos on Youtube; you interconnect your content together which compounds your effectiveness of being found by the search engines.

Simply doing this one action item of producing content every day will boost your business success. Be consistent. If you fall back on days, get back in the game as quickly as possible.

2. Grow your Followers.

You’ll need to share your content on Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus and/or other social media sites. Using Social Media is a great way to let others know about your content, but to do that you need followers. There are several automated ways to grow your followers, but here is a free method that will help as well.

Follow 10-15 or more people in your marketing niche every day. When you follow others, the tendency is for them to follow back, which will grow your followers. Re-tweet good content from others every day. Post about your content every day. Post about good articles and content you find. These principles apply in general to most of the social media sites. Don’t overpower your followers with tweets or postings, but be practical. You’ll notice others who are blasting tweets out all the time and mostly about their content and no one else’s. If you see someone doing too much in this way, use their example as something NOT to do.

There are other writings about specifics of how to share content on the various social media sites, as well as specifics on other methods on how to grow your followers in them. Continue to learn about and implement these methods as well.

3. Comment on other Blogs.

Find leaders in your marketing niche and post comments on their blogs. Comment on 10-15 other blogs in your niche every day. Find 25-30 of the leaders in your marketing niche and try to be one of the first 5 people to post comments on their new blogs. This will cause you to become more known among the leaders of your niche. Also, the first few comments are usually more visible and more reviewed than the later ones, so people will more likely notice your post and link back to your own blog or site.

4. It all works together.

You might be wondering how you do some of these things; Such as what do I write about in my blog or articles? What do I speak about in my videos? The answers to those types of questions will come as you do all of these action steps.

As you work to write a blog post, you’ll find other good material on the subject you’re writing about. You’ll learn who the leaders in your niche are as you search for material to write. You’ll find sites to go back to and comment on. You’ll find good posts you want to share on your social media sites.

As you work to find items to share on you Twitter, Facebook, etc, you’ll find material that teaches you more about how to maximize Twitter, Facebook, etc. As you look for blogs to comment on, you’ll find material you’d like to bookmark and write about later, or share on your social media sites.

As you work every day to put these action items into practice, you will learn more about Internet Marketing Success and find more and more material for your future comments, blogs, articles, videos, tweets, etc. It will become a snowball affect as you put these tips into practice.

Again, these are simple steps to take; they are not complicated. But they are not necessarily easy to put into practice, because it takes making yourself do them when you may not want to. This is where you have to decide that building a successful online business is a big enough goal that you are willing to sacrifice time away from more trivial things now in order to have time freedom in the future.

Put these and other business success tips into practice and you will see your business grow toward the success you are looking for.

Here’s to your online business success.
