What is Twitter Chats and how to use them to gain more exposure

twitter chats

When I first started blogging I had no idea what Twitter Chats are. I was curious how my blog can gain exposure and how I can connect with more people with the same interests as mine. I would spend hours searching and reading “how to” topics for bloggers. I came across some useful tips a while ago so I am sharing today how to easily be noticed out there and build friendship with fellow bloggers over the internet.

What is Twitter Chats & How to use them

Twitter Chats build a great community for bloggers. While you participating you can chat to people in your niche and gain some new blogging knowledge. Some Twitter chats have specific topics and others are free  for everyone to share latest blog post, recent interests and all that kinda fun stuff…

At the end of each chat every blogger has a chance to share their blog link to the community. This is a great way to popularise your blog and gain more blogging friends. I have noticed that if you write a catchy message and include an image to your tweet people are more likely to click on it other than just sending the link to your blog.

Few useful tips

Tip:

Sometimes Twitter Chats can be overwhelming to keep up with all the tweets, so I found a website called TWEETCHAT.COM where you simply type the hashtag of the chat and it takes you to a live streaming page on your computer. This way is much easier to participate in the chat and not miss any tweets.

Tip:

Useful plugin to keep your old blog post live on Twitter is Revive Old Post Plugin for WordPress . This plugin allows you to set old posts which can automatically be sent on Twitter. This helps you to promote your content and drive more traffic to your blog. You can set a time when you want your posts to be tweeted and also you can choose if you don’t want some of your posts to be shared.

Buffer is another great marketing tool to share your blog posts and gain more exposure. I talked about  some of the most Powerful Marketing Tools to help you build a successful blog in recent article. So if you are interested click here to head over for a quick read.

Also, you can always use some hashtags to share your posts on Twitter. My most used are #bbloggers and #sundayblogshare (this one is great to share your content only on Sunday). There are popular hashtags for each day of the week which are very useful too.
