How to Shop for Retweets Without Actually Spending Money: Just Retweet

Shopping Bags

Just Retweet It enhances your content’s visibility.

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.

Just Retweet’s Dashboard

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.

Members offer different amounts to follow them.

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.

How to submit a retweet on JustRetweet

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.

 

Conclusion

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.

      Hi Haley,
      I saw you over in Grow Your Blog on Facebook. Page views were initially low, so I am grateful you chose my post to click on and read. Thank you.

      Hi Sydne,
      Thank you so much for reading what I wrote and commenting. You know, I have over 100 articles just like this one explaining how you can “get some new views” on your blog. It’s totally free, and you even get a free private advice post for signing up. Here is the link: http://wp.me/P5jxvv-hM
      At any rate, thank you for the kind words.

    Hi Janice,
    So I tried this retweet website and yes I earned credits however I also found that the things I were trying to retweet or share on google+ or Facebook, once published, were not the links I had followed and read but instead were advertising to buy something. Maybe the problem is on my end with my computer but I had to cancel. I am already feeling concerned about what harm may have been done to my own website email, and social media accounts. Disappointed.

      Hi,
      I tried writing you back yesterday when I read about the stress. While it is true that most of what I checked was the default to Twitter, I am sure I also checked Facebook. Not once was I asked for money. I am so sorry. Did you watch the video?
      Janice

      • memeethemuse | at 8:01 pm

        Yes, I did watch the video before giving all of my information to retweet. It wasn’t that I was asked for money, it was that my retweets were advertisements asking others to buy something… even though what I had gone and viewed and decided to retweet were not. Just felt spammy and scammy. So I deleted my retweet account. I am helping a friend with marketing a book and was disappointed to find that retweet isn’t as secure as I’d hoped it would be.
        Not your fault. You’d asked for us to reply with our experiences, so I did. That’s all. Keep doing what you’re doing!

    Hi it’s easy and fun. I am sorry you’re having stress about it. Did you watch the video?
    I am actually the featured blogger for the week, and my account was credited with 5000 credits because I wrote a blog post about their site. At no time was I ever asked for money.

    Hi Janice, just popped over from community pool. I saw this on my reader when you posted it, I think the reason I didn’t really have a look is couldn’t make out what it was really about from the title and since I only opened my Twitter account literally 2 days ago, I’m still trying to work how to use it. I will visit this site once I feel a bit more comfortable with Twitter. Thanks for this

      Hi,
      Twitter is easy. However, there is an “art” to it, and I’ll tell you why. Twitter is a feed that goes quickly. There is a way for like-minded people to find each other which I explained in my post. I wrote it a long time ago, so I got you the link. http://wp.me/p5jxvv-i6 Read the part about Twitter hashtags which will enable you to find other bloggers. Thanks for writing.

      How fun Michael, and the site really is fun! I am so glad. Write me back and tell me what you think of it.
      Thanks for coming over from the Community Pool. Nice meeting you yesterday.
      Janice

    This is an interesting idea! I’m still not sure if I want to go that route, but your post was certainly informative and you did an excellent walk-through. It almost feels like I’ve been scrolling through the site myself.
    P.S. I’m stopping by from the Community Pool!

    • Janice Wald | at 7:16 pm

      Hi Jhaneel,
      Nice to meet you.
      Thank you for your kind words about my post. Maybe try it once, and see what you think. I did, and now I’m hooked!
      Thanks for writing.

      Hi! Thanks for clicking on my post when you were over at SITS. JustRetweet is actually more fun than shopping. If you have any questions when you check it out, write me back and let me know. Nice meeting you.

      Hi Brandi,
      I was writing with Bridget who says she likes to be in her own section of comments on the schedule. By not being in my own comment section, I get to interact here with you guys. I know you visit others anyway. I’m just saying, it’s nice seeing you here.
      Thank you so much for complimenting the redesign! I wanted something contemporary. I’m not a travel blogger, so the camel in the Sahara desert didn’t fit, and readers often said they found the camel confusing. I replaced a camel Brandi; that’s not something I do everyday, LOL.
      Thanks for writing.
      Janice

    Hey Janice,
    I felt really attracted to this post, being the second I’m reading on your blog today.
    The reason is that I just published a post on JustRetweet too 😉

    I must also underline that this platform came up as an EasyRetweet clone. I developed EasyRetweet in 2011 and a friend in Nigeria cloned it.

    We both sold our platforms out to new owners and the guy who bought JustRetweet has been doing a great job keeping it clean.

    So thanks for introducing it to your audience 😉

      Hi Enstine,
      I have been busy reading your post on JustRetweet. If you don’t pay to be a featured blogger on JustRetweet, do you find you get traffic from there? I did but I don’t know it was worth the time invested, and I haven’t been back in a while.

        Hey Janice,
        Thanks for checking out my blog 😉

        More of the traffic I get doesn’t even come from being featured on the platform. It comes from social media. I use TweetDeck and see the retweets by members who are real bloggers.

        You may want to give it a try now, use some tracking tool to track clicks generating by it. How about that?
