Can I get a Retweet?

TweetAre you up on your social media? Do you have a Facebook and Twitter account? Are you getting the best out of it?

These are just some of the questions you should be asking when it comes to social media. Social media such as Twitter can be a really useful tool in spreading the word about your brand.

Here we give you some top tips on how to spread the word and get your Tweets re-tweeted:

  • Use one or more ‘#’ to increase the likelihood of it being retweeted – don’t go overboard and use more than three as it can become hard to read.
  • Include a picture – this can be through the twitter system or from Twitpic, Instagram or Facebook. Photos are magnets from attracting people to view your tweet and then pass it on!
  • Call-to-action tweets can help increase retweets – use phases such as ‘please help’ or ‘please retweet’. Don’t forget your manners too!
  • Get the length right – include enough substance to be worth sharing but over 120 characters and people lose interest.
  • Most importantly choose your words carefully and when characters are limited ensure you message is clear!
