That’s a Twitter-related service called ClickToTweet. Also, it creates a clickable link that users can use to share anything on Twitter with one click. Newly, they released a Chrome extension which has only made the service even simpler.
What is ClickToTweet?
It’s a web application that is helpful for agencies and digital marketers for sharing links with others to get more tweets. Let me explain this with an example.
Suppose I want my readers to tweet this text:
“An Epic collection of 100+ #Blogging tools worth bookmarking: https://www.shoutmeloud.com/blogging-tools-mega-collection.html via @shoutmeloud #Blogger.”
I can paste it like this and ask them to share which is handy but not very useful for everyone. With ClickToTweet, I can create a single link, which if clicked, will take users to their Twitter account and people can quickly share it on Twitter.
For example https://clicktotweet.com/34lfn
Clicking on the link up will lead you to this (You can click to try plus also share since the article is deserving sharing)
Well, here is a service that is worth bookmarking and with the new chrome extension, building a Tweetable link is an absolute breeze.
The ClicktoTweet service offers a dashboard wherever you can create such links and also see the performance of earlier established Tweetable links.
To create a new tweetable link, only use the message you would like tweeted box to make your tweet and click on Generate New Link. If you are joining a link to a webpage along with your message, you have the choice to track click stats and also shorten the URL from the compose area.
To tweet the above message, click on the link below, and you will notice it in action:
Isn’t it a cool Twitter hack?
How I use the ClickToTweet service:
There are several practical use cases of ClickToTweet, but there is one way I use the service to avail its benefits.
When users join a course:
I frequently create a link for users to share when they enter any of my free classes. That has a ripple effect and helps me get new users as well. The key hereabouts is the message that you type to ensure your tweet copy is something worth bestowing.
In email blasts:
When I send an email newsletter regarding a new blog post, I often help my readers to share it on Twitter. I perform it easier for them by using such clickable links, also so far I have seen significant results with this practice. With the ClickToTweet chrome extension, now it’s easier to create such tweetable links.
An agency that hires an influencer marketer to tweet branded content can also use this service to give them a link to tweet without any error. Easy-peasy!
Over to you:
Overall, this is an exciting and useful Twitter-based service that should be in your bookmark. They do have a pro version too, but it is recommended for agencies. For a blogger and an influencer, the basic version offers all useful features which you may need.
