for a strong, fast pick-me-up
Here’s how you can use certain words and sentence combinations to make your tweets more compelling.
Here’s a word to help you get more people to click on any links in your tweets.
Any what’s that word?
YOU is too.
You grab a reader’s attention and get them to click on any links in your tweets.
I learned these tips from following US “Social Media Freak” Stephanie Clegg on twitter.
Here are some of Stephanie’s tweets that compelled me to click on through and read the blog posts at Convert With Content.
Stuck in a blogging rut? Here are some places to find your MOJO. LINK
Do you tag yourself in your images shared on your FB business page? You should be. Here’s why.LINK
Where are your influencers lurking? Here are some places to find people talking about your business. LINK
Here’s what I liked about Stephanie’s tweets that made me click on the link.
1. They start with an engaging question that was relevant to me
2. Inclusive language – YOU and YOUR sound as if you are “speaking” directly to the reader.
Even “Stuck in a blogging rut – sounds as if it is written for YOU – (Are YOU) stuck in a blogging rut?
3. The word HERE – (to me) is conversational and yet compelling – like one of those cartoon fingers pointing and saying CLICK HERE!
Even in blog posts, the word HERE can encourage you deeper into the post.
Here’s Stephanie’s tweets again – this time with emphasis in CAPS.

Do YOU tag yourself in your images shared on your FB business page? (Q) You should be. HERE’s why. LINK

Of course not all her tweets are written in that structure. It’s better to vary your tweeting structures or else they get boring and lose their appeal.
I’m not connected with Stephanie in any way – other than being a follower and fan and “student” of all her tips.
She is in California. I’m based in Australia.
As a word nerd – I help Australian and Asian businesses improve the WORDING and WRITING of their social media – especially twitter and blogging.
I’m still learning about the more “technical parts” of social media from “SOCIAL MEDIA FREAKS” and aficionados like Stephanie.
If you are interested in learning more about social media, I encourage you to follow her and study her blog as I do.
