Traffic Efficiently: Build it With Twitter and this Wordpress Plugin

By: Doug Samuel

Everybody says Twitter is a great way to promote your website. With exceptions ... I respect enormously, and he says Twitter is a waste of time.
Armand things that Twittering all day long is a big fat waste of time. Do you have important things to do, like make money? Then you and I both agree with this statement!
The key to using Twitter effectively is to spend as little time using it as possible. If you don't even have to go to the Twitter website (getting sucked in to reading and responding to other people's tweets), so much the better.
Efficiency is great! Reusing your WordPress content on Twitter is especially efficient!
I wanted a plugin that tweets every time I post on my blog, and spend quite a bit of time finding it.
This is really great because with very little effort, each post on my blog gets tweeted on Twitter.
I decided on WP to Twitter because it seems to be both easy to use and well packed with features ... yet not bloated.
The no extra effort option is just exactly that: just post, and a tweet magically appears saying I just posted to my blog.
Just take a little more time and you get better results: add a custom message when writing your article, and the message is tweeted, instead of a dull message saying "New post: [title] [url]".
Either way, you can set Cligs to automatically insert a short URL to your blog post with absolutely no effort. Set it and forget it, I love it!
Speaking of Cligs, this tool offers some great analytics tools showing you how many people click the link and when. It also integrates with Google Analytics. Since I haven't had this running long enough to see how Cligs activity from Twitter shows up in Google Analytics.
Certainly, all that tracking should answer, over time, just exactly how useful Twitter is to promoting your blog (or whatever else).
And here's the cool thing: if you train your Twitter followers to train your Clig links,then you can always drop in the odd promotion into your Twitter stream - as long as it is very useful, relevant and of high value to visitors, otherwise you'll just irritate everyone and lose credibility.
The main point is that if you install WP to Twitter, you can happily blog away, knowing that at the same time you are giving your Twitter followers something to read and an interesting link to follow.
