TweetMyBlog”: A Great WordPress Plugin
In the true spirit of WordPress plugins, this one is completely free! It works like this..
Each time you make a post on your blog, it automatically, and instantly, makes a new tweet on your Twitter account. Now there are other WP plugins that do this, but, being produced by two internet marketers (John Merrick and Soren Jordansen), TweetMyBlog has got some clever twists.
Not only does it post a tweet when you update your blog, but on your blog, it also puts your recent tweets in a WordPress widget in a sidebar. So it both drives your Twitter followers to your blog and your blog readers to your Twitter account.
But it gets better.. John and Soren have added some rather tempting off’ers to people signing up for their free TweetMyBlog plugin. And, when you sign up, you automatically become an affiliate of TweetMyBlog. You get commission when someone signs up for their plugin through your link and takes up one of those off’ers – and they are good products.
And where do your affiliate links appear? In two places! In your blog’s sidebar widget, under the list of your recent tweets, there’s a little “Powered by TweetMyBlog” message. That’s linked to the sign-up page through your affiliate link.
When one of your Twitter followers hits one of your blog tweets to go to your blog, they see, in addition to your blog page, a banner across the top promoting TweetMyBlog – again with your affiliate link. Oh, and the banner is only displayed when a visitor comes to your blog through one of your automated blog tweets.
I really like this win-win integrated system – and it only takes minutes to download the plugin and install it. When you’ve done that, you immediately get these benefits:
- Automated tweets which look, and are, genuine.
- Visitors to your blog from your Twitter account (get more readers of your blog)
- Visitors to your Twitter profile from your blog (get more followers)
- A chance of commission when someone goes from your tweet to your blog
- A chance of commission when someone checks out TweetMyBlog from you sidebar widget.
