Do you like to shop?
Would you like it even better if you could do it with other people’s money?
That is the concept behind JustRetweet, a website designed to give your content more visibility. You are literally shopping for your blog’s exposure on Twitter. The best part, you don’t have to spend a penny. Your budget, should you have one, can stay well intact.
JustRetweet gives you the money, called credits.
Just like in a real store, there are different prices for the amount, and type, of exposure you want for your blog posts.
How it works:
Step 1: Go to http://www.justretweet.com/ and make an account. You may use your Twitter account to sign in.
When you first log in, you are going to see the Dashboard. By looking at the screenshots, you see “Featured” members. Under them, you can search for a specific Twitter member or a hashtag. Since I write about blogging, that’s the hashtag I normally search.
Just for joining, JustRetweet gives you credits to get you going.
Step 2: Start collecting additional credits:
- Next to the member’s Twitter handle, a number of credits is listed. This is how much you will receive for retweeting each members’ Tweet.
Your retweets are all scheduled by JustRetweet, so you don’t have to worry about bombarding your Twitter followers with seeing your retweets all at once.
They will be scheduled up to one day in advance, so if you go back into the site the next day and see your retweets haven’t occurred yet, don’t be alarmed.
Another way to get credits are by following members. JustRetweet pays you ten credits for each member you follow. You don’t have to worry about losing credits if people follow you. The credits your new Twitter followers get paid come out of JustRetweet’s pockets, not your credit allotment.
Click Twitter Followers. Initially, you will see the same screen as in Step 1. However, if you scroll down, you will see additional Twitter users.
If you look closely, underneath their name and Twitter handle, a number of credits is listed. This is how many credits you will receive if you follow these members.
Step 3: It’s time to spend your credits! You do this by composing a retweet you want others to share.
Click Submit Tweet.
Write a Tweet you would like shared. Paste the link.
Type in how many credits you are willing to pay each member to share your Tweet for you.
Fill in Maximum times to promote. This will ensure you don’t run out of credits.
Make sure how many times you pay to promote and how much you pay to promote your Tweet doesn’t exceed how many credits you have. I am still relatively new to JustRetweet, and I keep spending many of my credits each time I go into the site, so I only have 265 credits left.
The Minimum Number of Twitter Followers to Promote asks you what is the least amount of followers you want someone to have who will retweet your link for you.
You only want serious Twitter users to share your links, so someone with 1500 Twitter followers is a good choice.
Step 4: Check to make sure you successfully submitted your Tweet. If you look at the screenshot, you can see my queue for the last day.
The Beatles once sang, “We all get by with a little help from our friends.” We certainly could all use a little help with blog promotion. JustRetweet has Twitter members waiting to do just that–for a price. The best part is, you don’t have to pay anything but credits you’ve earned. So, what are you waiting for? Just retweet!
Readers, if you think other content creators could benefit from JustRetweet, please share.
Do you have any experiences with JustRetweet? Are there any other ways you have found to promote your blog posts that work for you? I look forward to your views.
