    Kim nice video.

    I have used this idea for over a year.. and tested posts without it recently and have seen lower tweets shares.

    I used to used click to Tweet.linked to an image… but they were getting a lot of spam complains and links would get blocked.

    I now just hand code the url which takes a few sec, but the links are safer and always working.

      Hey John :)

      Can’t you just use the code that ClickToTweet.com generates – instead of the actual ClickToTweet.com link itself?

      Thanks for commenting!

      I’m a HUGE fan of your blog :)

      - Kim

      Hey John

      I was checking out your blog and love the email forms you have, what do you use? Also at the end of the post you have popular posts on one side and the share stuff on the other…I believe this is done through columns, but what plugins or how is that set up…very nice…

    Awesome advice, as always, Kim! I’ve been hearing a lot about how great Twitter is for traffic and these tips are a good way to bypass the learning curve.

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Thanks Jessica :)

      Twitter and Facebook are two of my biggest traffic sources!

      - Kim

    Great tip Kim. That idea can definitely be utilized in all sorts of ways. The creative juices are flowing :).

    Another site that I see utilize this from time to time is Hubspot.

    Just goes to show you if you make it super easy for people to do something, they’re more likely to do it.

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Soooo true.

      The less friction you create – the more likely people are to take action.

      Applies to so many different aspects of marketing.

  • http://www.shalusharma.com/ Shalu Sharma

    I have not heard of this before but I think its the best tip I have read so far. I am going to try this method. I am getting some retweets and there is no doubt that tweets generate a lot of traffic. Does this mean that for every post, you have to do it manually every time?

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Hi Shalu :)

      Well, it’s not really manual per se because ClickToTweet.com will generate the code for you.

      I can’t wait to share more of our results as we continue testing it :)

    Hello Kim, I just found your blog and you hit me with some fab tips. I’m going to be releasing a new plugin to help you easily make those attractive boxes complete with icons. Now, you have given me additional ways to make my plugin better. I’ll keep you in mind when it is out. Thank you!

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Oh my gosh Lynette!

      I was just thinking today about doing the VERY same thing :)

      Because a plugin would be so perfect for this.

      But now I’ll just let you do it ;)

      I’d love to beta test for you!

      • Lynette

        Great! I put in a note to myself about that. You’ll hear from me about this.

  • http://GabeJohansson.com/ Gabe Johansson

    I use this here and there, and I have only gotten a few RTs. It does work though!

    The only thing is that those RTs haven’t resulted in any traffic according to the Google Analytics social tracking. Even then, I have noticed those posts that have been RT’d have been getting more search traffic.

    Coincidence? Nah.

    Thanks for the awesome tip and I read all the same blogs :)
    -Gabe Johansson

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Hey Gabe :)

      To get more accurate tracking – I would recommend that you setup a specific Pretty Link OR a tracking link through Adtrackz Gold.

  • http://unwireme.com Rich Polanco (from UnwireMe.com)

    Great tip! Immediately implemented it on my last post.

    Will let you know how it works :)

    -Rich Polanco

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Can’t wait to hear your results Rich!

      I LOVE your speed of implementation :)

  • http://eddiegear.com/ Eddie Gear

    Very interesting post Kim. I love the tip and have already implemented it in one of my recent posts. I would love to see this work and bring in a lot of traffic.

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Hey Eddie :)

      I just checked out your blog and your “Click to Tweet” boxes look great!

  • http://www.freemakemoneyadvice.com Erik Emanuelli

    Great tutorial, Kim!

    I think Twitter is a must have tool for every blogger and marketer
    and there are so many ways to use it.

    I will add this strategy in my next blog post! :-)

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Hey Erik!

      Can’t wait to hear how it works for you :)

      It definitely adds up over time.

      Cheers,

      Kim

    Hi Kim,

    awesome post and share a s always :-)

    Very timely for me, as I get a lot of traffic from facebook, but was wondering how to use twitter properly.. going to test it now

    thanks indeed and keep up a good work!

    best wishes,

    Aigul Erali

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Hi Aigul :)

      I just checked out your blog – LOVE the design!!

  • http://best-subwoofer.org Richard

    Thanks Kim, that’s an excellent tip, looking forward to putting it into action!

  • http://www.onlineincomestartup.com Dr.Spencer Jones

    Great tip and great results Kim. But I guess there must be some plugin to make the whole thing much easier instead of going through all different steps. Looking forward to implementing the functionality in my blogging.

    tweak my brain! Thanks!

  • http://menajo.com Mena Jo

    I’ve seen these click to tweet buttons on other people’s blogs, but I’ve been slow on the uptake. I think this is one kick A strategy for getting your content out there and now you’ve filled in the gaps for me. I’m sooo going to start doing this.

    Thanking you kindly!

    - Mena

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Let us know how it goes Mena :)

    Thanks Kim for the great Twitter tip. We are always looking for new ways to increase traffic and you always have such great ideas. Looking forward to implementation!

    Thanks for sharing this AWESOME tip with us, Kim!

    You’ve been extremely consistent, and very giving in each of your posts and during your webinar trainings, because you ALWAYS provide useable, valuable content.

    Thanks for being the “Complete Package” (smart, cute as a button, fun, and giving).

    Take care :-)

      It’s comments like this that keep me fired up!

  • http://mission0ps.com Tony B

    That’s got to be the best tip I’ve had in a while Nice one Kim – Just going to see what it brings forth myself now ;)

    Keep Buzzing!

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Thanks Tony :)

      I like to bring the bacon…LOL

  • http://www.majormarketingtools.com Jon

    You always bring such great ideas to your readers Kim. I always look forward to your e-mails and this post has inspired me to reboot/redesign my blog that I have been neglecting for quite some time. I will be putting this to use very soon. I love the idea of applying this to top 10 type posts. As mentioned above, a plugin to automate this a little more would be awesome. Would love to beta test that too.

    Keep on rocking Kim.

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Yes, a plugin would be VERY cool for this feature. Can’t wait to see what Lynette creates!

  • http://marketingwithsergio.com Sergio Felix

    Just implemented this, works like a CHARM.

    Thanks Kim, you freaking ROCK! ;-)

    Sergio

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      You ROCK :)

  • http://www.missionphilippinesfundraiser.org Mark Butts

    Kim, I am going to try using this strategy for my missionary blog fundraiser site. But, what message do you think would work best for the blog. I am trying to raise $30,000.00 and need as much help as possible so the if you have got some great ideas about what message I should use, I am willing to listen!

    Thanks and God bless,
    Mark

      A message that your community would WANT to spread.

      It comes from thinking about your particular prospect.

      And you know them best :)

      So you’re really the best person to think about what message you would
      like to share. And one that others would want to share as well.

  • http://www.mobilephonebizopportunity.com/ Gary @ Solavei

    I really cannot stand Twitter. But I guess we all have to use it if we want to bring our blog to the next level. I have an account for my blog but I have not been using it to it’s fullest potential. I think I am going to give it another try though after watching the video. Thanks again for the excellent post. :]

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Twitter is a great way to start driving traffic to your blog.

      But also remember that your LIST – is the biggest, most important asset in your business.

      So be sure to setup systems on your blog that convert visitors into subscribers.

      Cheers,

      Kim

  • http://babyitems.bellaroy.com Isabella

    Thanks Kim!

    That was a great tip that I will definitely use on my site. I will definitely report back on how it goes. When it comes to traffic, you truly are the expert!!!

  • http://www.ericstips.com Eric Holmlund

    Good tip Kim! I’m going to share this on twitter, etc.
    I think the same principle would apply for FB likes and G+1 also, although the implementation might be a little more complex. It seems that many people have become “banner blind” to the standard social buttons, so setting it apart like this makes sense. I’ve actually done something similar on my blog for awhile to draw attention to my coaching club or other links that I really want to highlight.

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Oh my gosh!!!

      Eric Holmlund has commented on my blog :)

      Does happy dance in chair…

      Thanks so much for your kind words Eric! It means a LOT to me.

      I’ve been a LONG time fan of yours. LOVE what you’re doing online.

      I was following you all the way back in high school.

      Great idea on applying this to FB likes and other platforms.

      I hadn’t thought of that :)

      You ROCK!

      Cheers,

      Kim

      • http://www.ericstips.com Eric Holmlund

        Haha, that’s awesome thanks Kim :-)
        Hmmm… looks like I just got an idea for a new product or WP plugin…
        I love your blog too, and I’ve even recommended it a couple times on my coaching calls :)

  • http://dcincome.com/blog Matthew Loop

    Good video and traffic strategy, Kim. This function makes it very simple and obvious for readers to re-tweet your content. It’s right in their face, which I like.

    Thanks for the tip!

  • http://www.womaninleadership.com Stacie Walker

    Hi Kim,

    Great post! I just started using this strategy about a week ago. It has done wonders to increase my blog readership and following.

    Keep up the great work!

    Many Blessings,

    Hi Kim!

    I just so happened to be checking my Yahoo mail today,
    when I spotted your email, which led me to your post.

    By the way, KUDO’s on your tutorial video, it flows so nicely
    and your step-by-step is ‘spot on’.

    I actually took your instruction and applied it to my website.
    It looks SO GOOD, I placed a quote in a place where it can’t
    be missed.

    I’d love to hear what you have to say, so let me guide you to it.
    http://AutomatedRecruitment.com

    Your comment there would go a long way, and I’ll be forever
    grateful to you for doing so. A social share would be cool too.

    Have a highly inspired day…your friend Steven Suchar

    • http://www.buzzblogger.com Kim Roach

      Hey Steven!! Way to take action :)

      But I have to say the white text on a blue background is VERY hard to read.

  • http://LiftMyDepression.com Kat MacKinnon

    Love it, Kim!

    It would be perfect to implement in my blog posts. Can’t wait to try it.

    You are such a great teacher and your explanations are just perfect for those of us who just need simple and clear instructions to follow.

    Thank you!

    Hi Kim! I´m a new blogger and I spend several hours online trying to learn SEO and Emarketing stuff. Most things I find are garbage or things that are useless for someone who´s not trying to sell some spammy content. This click to tweet thing looks great, I´m updating my posts with it right now. Thank you for something usefull!!!

  • http://www.socialmediafollowing.com/blog/ Gary

    Thanks for the awesome advice and the nice little tweak. I think this could absolutely help get more retweets and I am going to try it, for sure. Another great tip is to actually ask for retweets when you tweet. You would be surprised how many more you will get. Thanks again.
