Twitter often feels like the forgettable little sister to Instagram or Facebook. But Twitter can be a HUGE way to drive traffic to your blog in a non spammy way.

Despite using Twitter and loving it, it's one of the social media platforms I devote the least amount of time to. The reason? It's SO EASY to schedule and still gain followers and traction. 

So... why use Twitter?

1. It's super easy to connect and convert. If someone is talking to me or retweets me, chances are I'll follow them on Twitter. I think it's an easy way to start a conversation.

2. Post as you will. You can post 5-10 times a day on twitter without anyone blinking an eye! I try ot make multiple tweets about different posts throughout the day and schedule them on Hootsuite.

3. MASSIVELY easy to schedule. I use Hootsuite but there are many platforms you can use. 

4. Pin your tweets to the top of your profile to get more traction

Bottom line, Twitter is pretty awesome. Now, let's get to using it successfully. 

Twitter basics: Fill out your profile, don't be on private, have an image, and have a bio containing some focus keywords.
