There are plenty of things you can do on Twitter to get more tweets.
But what can you do to get more tweets and followers without ever leaving your site?

These tips are very useful, not just for Twitter, but also other social networks where the principles are applicable.

I can tell that lots of time and thought went into the article.

Looking forward to the next one.

Mark: Yes, it helps. I was mixing the blogging post with Twitter. I have seen automatically summaries and picture cards on Twitter's own tool.

Kick butt Twitter tips, Mark!

These are really awesome. I'm looking to beef up my Twitter marketing and these tips will definitely help me with that. I had no idea about a "Twitter Card". Sounds pretty neat. I've booked marked this post for future reference. Thanks a bunch for sharing!

Hey Ti,

Sorry for the late reply, and thanks! Glad you liked the tips. Yup, Twitter cards can help improve the percentage of people who click through from twitter to your site quite a bit.

I personally like Dustin Curtis' tip the most. Its interesting that just adding the word "you" can increase the rate at which people follow you on Twitter.

Mark: If you use Twitter's own tool, will the card image show up automatically?

Hey Lyceum, which tool are you talking about?

Maybe I am wrong but I would have to say no, because there are a few types Twitter Cards and you choose which you want to use for your site (or post). Unless the tool explicitly asks for which type of Twitter card you would like to use, I would guess that the tool does nothing about the Twitter cards.

Hope that helps.

Wow Mark! This is the first time I have heard of twitter cards as well as pay to tweet. I definitely learned a lot from this post and picked up a few things. In your own opinion, why do you think that last strategy Dustin used was more effective compared to the others?

Thanks for the vote Tcamba, glad you found it helpful. The last strategy by Dustin worked so well because it was commanding, personal, and gave a direct action to take.

What great suggestions and thanks so much for sharing them with the BizSugar community. I like especially the specifics you've added here in terms of the benefits to be gained with some of these techniques. Probably everybody with a Website uses Twitter to drive traffic these days, but this post answers the question of how to take those efforts to the next level.
