How to Leverage One Social Media Site For a Flood of Traffic

If you are not using Twitter to drive traffic to your websites, blogs, and articles then you are missing out on a great tool and leaving tons of traffic on the table. And traffic properly handled turns into profits.

So let’s take a closer look at how to leverage Twitter to drive tons of traffic to your articles, whether your content is on your website, blog, or an Article Directory.

7 Steps to a Ton of Traffic

Step 1 – Tweet that you are working on a new piece of content. Include the working title and when you expect to have it done by. This builds the anticipation in your followers and puts a bit a pressure on you to get in done.

Step 2 – When you submit your article to a Directory, let your Twitter followers know your new content has been submitted. Include the title, and let them know when you think the article will be out by. This continues to build anticipation.

Step 3 – When you set up your account at EzineArticles correctly, your newly published articles are “auto-tweeted” to and announced on Twitter, including the title and the link. This is done automatically for you. If your article is coming out on another Directory, watch for it’s publication and then tweet that the article is out. Include the title and the link.

    One of the most powerful pieces of this article is the “anticipation” you can build for your upcoming articles…


  • Thanks for this article Jeff! I’ve had my nose stuck into learning Internet Marketing and all it entails since about June of 2007.

    I thought that I had learned everything there was to know about using Twitter for SEO and Traffic reasons that one can learn without paying $2000!

    However, your “Step #1″ I didn’t catch onto until just now! (Duh! I know, what was I thinking, right?). This is one of those things that, after reading it, I slapped myself on the forehead and thought to myself..”Why didn’t I catch-on to this before?!!” DANG! (yes, I say “dang” coz I’m from TN. 😛 )

    Thanks Jeff for freely giving! (I just might buy some of your stuff in early April. I hope you don’t mind 😀 )

  • Hi Jeff,

    I have seen you mention before about building the anticipation. I have even done it once or twice with my articles. However like Gary I am slapping my forehead because of the power that is in doing this consistently.

    I go to all the work of creating and posting the articles, best to do all I can to leverage off of that work. And using Twitter is such an easy way to do just that!

    Thanks for the reminder. AND it is OK to remind me again in the future

  • Brilliant, Jeff!

    I’m doing this, sort of, but your tips are helping me to take it up a few notches.

    And the way you send people from your blog to EZA for the next 4 tips is brilliant. Gotta start doing that myself!

    And as far as the building of anticipation goes… Haven’t done much of that yet, but will try that.



  • Excellent use of the very tips you are teaching Jeff. Great ideas.
