Why All Artist-Bloggers Should Use Twitter
Are you using Twitter?
From Facebook to Twitter to Flickr, social media is taking hot, hot, hot!!! As a blogger, you should already know this! If your blog is your primary social media platform, should you use other social media resources?
That a BIGGGG YES!!!
At the very least you should be using Twitter…you simply can’t afford to NOT use Twitter.
It is pretty simple to use (once you understand the jargon!). It creates real value for your blogging efforts and the potential reach for you and your content is huge.I recently wrote a series demystifying Twitter for those who don’t know how. Part 1 of the series is here.
Over the next few MMMs, I will go over a few reasons why you should start using Twitter in addition to your blog.
Promote Your Blog Content & Art
The most obvious reason that you should use Twitter is to promote your content and your art!!! Bottom line-People find blogs and art to buy or collect through Twitter. Many people access blogs directly from their Twitter feed now.
Every time you publish a new post, you should be tweeting it also! Your title should be interesting enough to make those who see it want to read more! FYI, use a link-tracking method like Twitterfeed or Bit.ly to measure how much traffic is coming to your blog through Twitter. The numbers may surprise you!
Looking forward to your feedback and insights down below 🙂
