Some people are claiming that 2013 is the year of video. In a Happy New Year email to one of my blogging friends, I committed to leaving my procrastination with this tool behind me. Disclaimer:I am a novice at instructional video like this. Move on if you are expecting to see a Hollywood-like production. However, if you want a quick overview of an easy tool to get more Retweets, Facebook likes and Goggle+ of your content, or bloggers whose work you admire, then this Just Rewteet, is a tool to consider. And if you are an introvert who wants more retweets more easily, this is a time and energy saver. Hooray for disconnecting from overwhelm! Here are some highlights, or watch the above video for similar.
Share and you will be rewarded.
When you create an account by logging in with Twitter, you are gifted 100 credits. As if free isn't enough of an incentive for some! You will need credits to submit posts you want retweeted, liked or Google +. Also, if followers are what you are after, you offer others credits to follow you. This an more is all controlled on your Dashboard.
All you do is ask.
You've got the free account, you even have some credits and lo and behold, you have a blog post that would be so helpful to so many more people than you have already reached. Move over to the right with the tabs and you find Submit Tweet. Type in your tweet , with the link to your content - and do remember to use a hashtag for the relevant terms you want to be picked up. The controls are in your hands as to how many credits to offer, how many times to retweet or share and where to promote your content. Note: To avoid spam and the like, request retweets for sales pages, direct affiliate links, squeeze pages, and other overly promotional or low quality content, get deleted.
No overload here.
I love this rule as an introvert because it helps me to focus and keep to my preferred slower pace: only 3 total tweet retweet requests in a 24 hour period. Pick your best content to share and you'll find you get retweeted more often, more easily, by more people.
Keep your eye on serving.
My experience has been valuable in various ways. And my process is generally the same once I log in: I look for good content to share, Just Retweet does that automatically once a select posts appropriate for my audience. My Twitter followers are growing every day, with greater regularity. My blog is being visited more which is going to raise it in Alexa and Google page rankings. But best of all, which makes it easy on this introvert, I'm building relationships with people who I already value by seeing the content they are writing.
There is a faster track to MORE.
My confession is, as a go-giver and being interested in sharing valuable content, I've always got enough credits for the pace I want to build my online social networking presence. If you want to go faster, you can actually purchase credits fairly inexpensively. What does buying a credits package get you? I took a peek for you: First, you become a featured member which means your profile shows up in prime areas on the site. When I see those featured members, after I assess our blogging compatibility, I follow them. Secondly, your tweets as a Featured members are highlighted and stand out more in the Retweet stream. Third, your tweets are rotated in the first position, ensuring maximum exposure to members of the site.
