How To Write An Interesting Tweet

Have you ever wondered what the secret is to writing good tweets that will result in your link being clicked?

The importance of learning how to write a good tweet should not be under estimated. No matter how interesting the page is that you want to send your followers to, unless you have an eye catching tweet, you will get a very low click through rate to the site.

I have great success with getting people to click through on my links. I have received over 13,000 clicks through to a site in seven days.
What’s the secret??

Here are some tips I recommend:

1Write in a non obtrusive way
2Do not make it sound like a sales pitch
3Grab your followers attention and peak their interest
4Make it sound like there could be an interesting article to follow
5If possible, make it funny so that it will be retweeted also for a viral effect!
6Write about topical subjects such as big celebrity bust ups or major news!

An example of a tweet I used for the Subliminal Power product (http://www.bit.ly/L5tln) was “People fear public speaking more than death! At a funeral, people would rather be in the coffin than giving the eulogy! ”. It’s the subtle differences that can make the difference of 1 sale a week to 50 sales a week to the same followers purely by getting people to click into the sales pitch or other.

I agree 100%!!! I don't have as many followers yet but I have had some really good click through rates!

Good advice. I already do most of that and will take the other advice to heart. My click through rate is okay, it's the conversion rate that needs working on. Thanks.

Hi Mili & Paul,

Good article! I was pleasantly surprised to find that I was already doing a few of these. I will add the rest to my repertoire.

Thanks for the useful advice,
