Today's Links to Writing & Marketing Blog Posts

By: Ross Simmonds

Sometimes people will favourite your tweets, other times they’ll reply and if you’re really lucky you might even land a retweet. While each of these interactions are great, the retweet often has more benefit than any other.

You know just as well as I do that generating retweets isn’t easy. You can send out as many tweets as you’d like but unless you’re an internet celebrity, it’s not easy generating a consistent stream of retweets.

Have you ever sent out a tweet and wondered why no one responded? Have you ever wondered why people would favourite a tweet instead of press the RT button?

One thing I’ve learned since joining Twitter many years ago, is that there’s both an art and science to getting retweets. While it’s a complex challenge, it’s one that I’ve studied and hope to shed light on in this very blog post.

Here are four of my own tried and tested strategies that will spark retweets:
