I’ve always had great success with Twitter and at times, it is my biggest traffic source. It is great to create connections and stay updated with industry news.
Such a big site, which is definitely one of the industry favorites, has a lot of business trying to fight for the market, so you can find hundreds of tools to help you grow the following, schedule tweets, manage your accounts and so on.
I ran into one of those recently and wanted to share a few tips about using it with you. I am talking about JustRetweet here.
What is JustRetweet
JustRetweet is a service that lets you pay for others to RT your posts and at the same time you can collect points by retweeting other peoples’ content.
How much will it cost
Technically, you do not need to buy any points with money, you can just collect them and then turn around and use them to send your message out.
If you do want to spend money on it, here are the prices:
Don’t blindly retweet
I retweeted several posts but I checked every one before doing that. You don’t want to randomly tweet links without knowing what is behind them, because you can be surprised!
For example, here is a screenshot of two tweets, same person, same site, that pays 60 points for a retweet. That is a pretty high price, most tweets I’ve seen are between 15 and 30 points.
I checked it out and landed on a newly launched site, pretty much with no content, with a pile of I would say affiliate links. No way you want to retweet that!
I ran into some blogs I’ve never seen before, that are very nice. One of those examples, I just had to share on my Facebook page because it was great:
I have to say I didn’t see a lot of people on it. It is same 15 people or at least it appears like that to me after two days. Unless a lot more join and start using it, I don’t see the point because you will have the same 3-5 people retweeting your posts and you will be retweeting the same few.
Give it a go – JustRetweet. I am not sure if it will grow to some significant size but you never know, you can at least connect with a few users that are using it. If you write your tweet nicely and offer enough points for retweeting it, you may be lucky enough to use other peoples’ following to grow your readership.
Make sure to send the traffic to a very good informational page and you won’t have to worry about anything.
I am wondering, have you tried JustRetweet yet?
