I actually made this tutorial video a while back, but it is still useful today. Now I recall what a loud computer I had back then, sorry about the noisy background!
Using HootSuite to schedule posts will allow you to generate free traffic to your blog or website.
By coming up with creative tweets and hashtags, you can recycle and repurpose your content to target different groups of people. So, what I don’t recommend is tweeting the same tweet over and over again, because Twitter will consider this spam. But if you come up with creative variations of tweets that lead to the same link, you can continue to get free traffic to your posts even long after you have posted them. I like to come up with fun taglines that encourage people to engage and retweet my tweets.
What is a hashtag?
When you put a pound sign symbol in front of a word, it becomes a searchable hashtag. Note that you cannot have spaces between the letters or the words. It will only hyperlink the word immediately after the pound sign and anything that comes after a space will not be hyperlinked. So if you want to hashtag a phrase, ie “Super Friday”, you will want to type it like this:
Whether or not you use lowercase or caps does not affect the hashtag. But it can help people read it easier.
