Just Retweet Helps You Spread Your Tweets Even Further
Lets face it there are so many sites out there these days that offer you the chance to increase your followers and the majority of these sites can fall foul of the Twitter Spammers, but when I heard about Just Retweet, I had to check it out for myself, the title just made me think, “Now that sounds interesting”
First of all Just Retweet is quite basic and there isn’t any of all that pop and circumstance of promising you the world in the TwitterVerse, it’s just there to help spread your tweets to the ever-growing Twitter users.
JustRetweet is a Web site that drives a lot of traffic to your Twitter account and your blog when your tweet gets retweeted and goes viral. There’s no question that Twitter drives website traffic. This is particularly true when one of your updates blog post, Website, etc.is retweeted within the industry. And the effect is two-fold: You not only get a good dose of traffic to your site, but will also likely gain new Twitter followers as a result.
How To Get Yourself Started Using Just Retweet
It’s really easy, just stop by Just ReTweet and do the following:
- Log in with your Twitter account via Twitter Oauth, you’ll get 100 tasty credits for doing that.
- Go in to your settings in Just Retweet and update your details, that’s another 25 credits.
- Enter a Tweet that you want others to ReTweet and use your credits to pay for it.
- Add your website.
- Add your websites RSS feed.
- Go and ReTweet some of the great articles and visit some of the websites, all of which will gain you credits.
So now your listed now what?
What I personally like to do is find some blog posts on my blog, that could may be do with a little viral retweeting and I add those to the section for my ReTweets, simply add the tweet with the URL shortened by your favourite URL shortner and your away, don’t add the RT USERNAME as this will automatically done for you.
You can also visit the Exchange ReTweets section where you can also earn credits for ReTweeting fellow tweeters tweets, but don’t just RT everything, tweet out what you think your followers will find interesting and valuable, you don’t want to be deemed a spammer for ReTweeting just for the sake of it, do you!
Don’t Just ReTweet, Visit The Blogs!
If you do see a ReTweet that is offering a few credits, then don’t just ReTweet it! I usually take the time to visit the link to the post as well, mainly when I see it’s from a Tweeter I trust,comment on the blog while you are there as well, this shows that you have some appreciation for the work that the blogger has put in to their post
Making Twitter Friends
Since the time this article was published JustRetweet no longer has this option available:
I took out the ability to follow users for credits on the site. You will notice that there is no longer any explicit follow button underneath any member’s avatar as there used to be, and I’ve also taken out the Twitter Followers tab. – Source
You will also see that there are options to follow other Tweeters, such as the section on the main page for “Featured Users”
Ideal for finding new like-minded Tweeters and following them will earn you credits, you will also find a “Twitter Followers” section to earn credits for follows. But always remember the golden rules when following anyone:
- Check out the Twitter profile first before following.
- Don’t follow just for the sake of credits
- Never, never CHURN on Twitter (following and dropping in quick succession, it’s the right way to get banned from Twitter!)
If you follow these simple rules, then you shouldn’t (hopefully) get those annoying spammers etc in your Twitter DMs.
My Thoughts On Just Retweet
I’ve used Just ReTweet for a while now and I can honestly say that so far I’m impressed, there seems to be a better bunch of tweeters using it compared to the likes of Twiends. But where Just Retweet excels is the viral power of getting your tweets ReTweeted and for me, since using Just ReTweet, my RTs have gone a lot further than they previously did.
But don’t take my word for it, give it a go yourself, it’s free, so how can you go wrong!
