Guerilleros, this will be quick because my offline guerilla is taking up too much time. What I’ll show you today is a quick tip for lazy viral marketers.
I bet you’ve already seen the tweetmeme plugin, which automatically inserts a new status message into a user’s own twitter account.
That is a major twitter marketing tool, and I highly recommend you install it on your blog. After all, the easier you make for people to syndicate your content, the more they will. If you do nothing, you’ll receive nothing. That’s guerilla karma.
But what if you’re looking to add some twitter marketing juice to a good-ole website? What? No wordpress plugins?
Viral Twitter Marketing Snippet for Non-Wordpress Sites?
Yeap, there are still places where a widget doesnt quite work. For those places, you can use a simple HTML guerilla code:
The only thing you have to pay attention to is that you cannot leave any spaces on the code, so you have to use + whenever you have a space.
For example, if I wanted to tell you to please retweet this awesome post, I’d write the following line of code:
<a href=”http://twitter.com/home?status=RT+@leosaraceni+Gave+me+this+cool+twitter+tip+at+http://socialmediaguerilla.com”>RETWEET ME</a>
It works even better when you have a banner image, or even a simple twitter logo. Check out how I merged this technique at my non-wordpress site, while I was writing about keyword research with google insight.
That’s it for today folks. Be creative with your guerilla, and always include viral twitter thingys on your content. As you know, twitter is profitable for a bunch of people (except its creators), and it will help your social media guerilla.
Talk to you soon!
