Yeah, so I’ve definitely been talking about Twitter a lot here on the blog.
It’s a fun place to be, I learn a lot from the people I follow, and it’s my number one source of traffic to this here blog.
Honestly, I spend a lot of time on the site, and that’s about to change.
But maybe not in the way you’d expect.
I’m about to multiply the time I spend on the site by 10, and today I’m going to explain exactly why.
My Old Twitter Gameplan
When I started my 30 day challenge, my secondary plan was to grow my Twitter account to get more exposure to my blog content.
My gameplan (if you could call it that) was to tweet my daily blog post, share relevant thoughts, and attract new bloggers to follow my account.
What really happened was I tweeted too much about lifting weights and drinking coffee.
Very few tweets about blogging.
But even then, according to my Twitter stats for July, I tweeted about 10 times per day and got a little over 100k impressions.
What’s more important is the number of people who clicked over to the blog as a result.
It’s pretty amazing if you ask me.
But I know I can do a lot better, so it’s time to step it up.
My New Twitter Gameplan
10 tweets per day just isn’t cutting it at this stage.
If I want to grow faster, I gotta take things seriously and ramp up my efforts.
I’m talking 100 tweets per day.
And if you want to see proof of this high volume tweet strategy working, just look at Alexander Juan Antonio Cortes grew his account to 38k followers by following his own very straightforward strategy.
There are many other great people on Twitter using a similar strategy and getting amazing results.
So now it’s my turn.
UPDATE: After attempting to tweet at this level for a few days, I’ve found out it’s not sustainable for me right now. Instead, I’m aiming for 30+ per day. Much better.
What About The Blog?
You might think it’ll be harder to keep up with the blog while tweeting so much, but honestly it’ll probably be easier than ever.
Think about it this way:
I’ll be writing a lot more content and spawning new ideas by the minute.
When it comes time to publish on the blog, I can compile related tweets in minutes and bam, there’s a new post.
This is especially easy when you use the tweet thread strategy, which is essentially a blog post already.
So as of writing this post, I will still be bloggin’ daily for as long as I can.
And if you want to get updated when I publish new content, be sure to join the email list to be notified.
Until then, I’ll be tweeting my face off.
