Guest blogging and Twitter are two great ways of getting traffic to your blog, but not only that, you can get great targeted traffic which is the best kind of traffic every blog needs. This can also help us to gain exposure by guest blogging and also tweeting if we do it the right way.
Blogging and Twitter go hand in hand. We tweet about our blogs and our blogs attract Twitter followers.
So what do a Guest post and the Retweet button have in common?
Why Guest Post?
Well the purpose of a guest post is to gain exposure. Many bloggers are looking to post articles on popular blogs in hopes that people will link back to their blog. Typically, bloggers find other blogs within their niche to link back to. A great way to increase traffic and comments to your blog is to leverage the success of another blog within your niche.
Having your name and your content on a popular blog helps develop credibility; readers automatically think “if the author of this blog posted someone else’s content on their page it must be good.”
So What’s Up With The Retweet Button?
The Retweet button is like Twitter’s version of a copy and paste. You like something someone else tweeted and you want to share it with your followers. By doing this, the person you Retweeted is notified plus your followers view the content as well.
Retweeting builds a connection between you and the person you Retweeted. It builds a connection between your Retweet and your followers. This connection has the potential to make you a resource, your followers will know they can trust you to Tweet/Retweet exciting, helpful information and the people you Retweet will be grateful that you are sharing their content with additional viewers that may not be in their network.
Did You Catch The Common Ground? No?
Ok, the commonality between a Guest Post and the Retweet button is that it develops exposure. After a Guest Post and a Retweet your name appears in more than one place, offering more avenues for people to get to know you, check out your blog, and follow you on Twitter.
There is a powerful level of synergy between blogging and Twitter; a Guest Post and the Retweet button raise the bar.
The common goal is to share what we know. We all learn from each other, so why not give credit where is credit is due?
Guest Post and the Retweet button provide individual recognition. Face it, we all enjoy a little praise here and there, so why not be recognized for sharing what you know, better yet, what you’ve learned.
