Want your loyal readers, website visitors, and/or employees to easily share your content through their Twitter channels? You’ve come to the right place. Creating a tweetable link is far easier than learning the custom code that you have to embed into your content. It’s as simple as having the right free tools and resources at your disposal. ClickToTweet does that.
This is a Twitter-related service called ClickToTweet and it creates a clickable link that users can use to share anything on Twitter with one click. Recently, they released a Chrome extension which has only made this service even simpler.
It’s a web app that is helpful for agencies and digital marketers for sharing links with others to get more tweets. With ClickToTweet, I can create a single link, which when clicked, will take users to their Twitter account and they can quickly share it on Twitter. Clicking on the link above will take you to this (You can click to try and also share since the article is worth sharing)
Well, this is a service that is worth bookmarking and with the new chrome extension, creating a Tweetable link is an absolute breeze. The ClicktoTweet service offers a dashboard where you can create such links and also see the performance of earlier created Tweetable links. There’s also a plugin for WordPress.
To create a new tweetable link, simply use the message you would like tweeted box to compose your tweet and click on Generate New Link. If you are adding a link to a webpage along with your message, you have the option to track click stats and also shorten the URL from the compose area.
There are many practical use cases of ClickToTweet, but there is one way I use this service to avail its benefits.
I usually create a link for users to share when they join any of my free courses. This has a ripple effect and helps me get new users as well. The key here is the message that you type to ensure your tweet copy is something worth sharing.
When I send an email newsletter about a new blog post, I often encourage my readers to share it on Twitter. I make it easier for them by using such clickable links and so far I have seen significant results with this practice. With the ClickToTweet chrome extension, now it’s actually easier to create such tweetable links. An agency that hires an influencer marketer to tweet branded content can also use this service to give them a link to tweet without any error. Easy-peasy!
Overall, this is an interesting and useful Twitter-based service that should be in your bookmark. They do have a pro version too but it is recommended for agencies. For a blogger and an influencer, the basic version offers all useful features which you may need. Where do you think you could best utilize click-to-tweet CTAs in your inbound marketing campaign?
