Why Family and personal posts get fewer Automatic Likes

Would you share some else’s family photo tweet? Would you still share the photo if you didn’t know the family in question? Most probably you wouldn’t share it. I wouldn’t either, and here is the reason. Twitter is a bit sensitive to personal and family private lives. People tend to interact on social things that are non-personal. After all, most people barely know their follows on person to person basis. However, other than automatic likes, family photo posts do attract a high number of likes. In fact, more often than not, family related tweets attract a higher number of favorites than there are automatic likes.

On another note, very few people love it when pictures of their private lives get to trend on social media. But then, that does it mean that is wrong to post anything about your personal life? No it’s not. In fact twitter is not always about professional topics. It is also not all about jokes and roasting public figures. Sometimes you may share something you do on your private life and ask people to give their comments about it. This way you get more likes than just posting selfies.

Consider Automatic like

Sometimes people ask themselves this question, is it really important to like or get liked? Well, it depends but generally there are several benefits or advantages of liking.  First and foremost when liking someone is almost the same as promoting a particular individual or the message they have posted on twitter. Likewise when someone likes your tweet it implies that your message is relevant and they probably want to share it with other followers on twitter. However, at this point you should be aware of both automatic likes and manual likes where someone following you has to physically like your post.

The greatest advantage of liking whether its automatic or manual is that you get be noticed by as many people as possible. Let’s say for example you approximately have 200 followers on twitter and at least 40% of those like your post, how many people do you think will get to see your message? Without a doubt several hundreds if not thousands considering that all your “followers” followers will also see the same message. This can be a good platform of advertising assuming you are a business selling some products or services since you will be able to reach very many people.

Making your Tweets reach your target audience

Perhaps, many of us even those active Twitter users are not very much aware that it is possible to schedule our tweets. If you’re one of the many who isn’t very much familiar of this idea, it is quite helpful to know that you can try using apps which are designed to ensure that as a user you do not swamp your followers with burst of tweets and automatic retweets and make certain that only meaningful and valuable tweets spread at times they can create the most impact.

In the same way, many of us might not be fully knowledgeable about so-called browser extensions which enable users to add web pages to their app’s queue, then, this shall automatically schedule your tweets and post them to Twitter. Another relating news is that there are apps which are readily available today that is specially designed to consolidate with several complimentary iPhone and iPad apps.

In reality, the reason why many Twitter users cannot completely take pleasure in their tweeting experience is that there are applications and latest features which they do not know how to use to make their sharing ideas and communicating activities more worthwhile.  It is high time to make your research now regarding the best app that can make your social media activity fun-filled, informative and substantial.

How Twitter Cards Help Brands Get Many Automatic Retweets

Twitter cards have been around for a couple of years now and they have been helping businesses gain from twitter marketing tremendously. If you have never used them to promote your brand, listen carefully. Twitter cards are basically tools that help add images, diagrams or drawings that help make your tweets stand out. They help attract engagement to your tweet, get more likes and better yet attract more automatic retweets.

With the tools, not only do you include you post a picture of the items you intend to sell, but you also add a little description about it. This, in turn, helps you capture more attention from people and get them to buy your products. Again, the tools allow you to include the price of your product, its availability and its dimensions as well. In the end, your tweets send out a more elaborate message about what you are selling even when twitter only allows 140 characters.

With that in mind, twitter cards can be great tools for all businesses, especially because they help you tap on all the things that make people react to a message quickly. By including a product description and picture, for instance, your customers feel more inclined to retweet it than when you simply send a plain tweet. And as automatic retweets increase, you dramatically increase your chance of getting more sales from your efforts. Note also that twitter cards are designed to make it easy for fans and followers to share your message, and as such are very simple to use.

So, when can you maximize on twitter cards’ potential in order to get many automatic retweets? Use the tools while promoting a product. Add an image to every tweet you send and evaluate the feedback you get. Images as most studies have shown always better the chances of getting reactions from fans. However, you probably want to get more than likes and favorites as reactions. You probably want an automatic retweet that can, in turn, help you attract customers. And this is where creativity comes in. While including the images and drawings, ensure you also add a call to action for people to retweet and read a blog post you wrote about your product.

Another way to attract your automatic retweets while using twitter cards is by relating your message to current events. Quote a popular TV show alongside your product and tell your followers how the two relate. Alternatively, simply tweet about the TV show but ensure you mention your product in the tweet. That way you get people to like and retweet because of your message, but at the same time promote your product.

Twitter cards also help you embed videos and audio files in your tweets. And while sending a tweet with a video doesn’t always reflect in multiple automatic retweets, adding a call to action alongside such a tweet can have a better impact. Finally, these cards help you collect email addresses from willing fans, which is yet a better way of marketing your products.
