Are you struggling to harness the power of Twitter for your blog?

You want more followers, more engagement and, of course, more traffic for your content.

You see other bloggers killing it on Twitter, and you want some of that success for yourself, but you don’t know where to start.

The platform already seems super noisy and has experts on every topic known to man. So what can you do to stand out?

You might worry that you need a sophisticated Twitter strategy, but don’t stress. If you focus on a few simple tactics, you’ll easily tap into a community that will support your work and drive the traffic your content deserves.

And even if you don’t have tons of followers just yet, you can make the most of those you do have, and start to get on the radars of the influencers that matter.

(Having 100 of the right people following you rather than thousands of the wrong people is always better anyway.)

Regardless of whether you’re a big fish or a tiny minnow in the Twitter pond, you can use the following tactics to get more traffic for your content today.

1. #getvisual

Stop thinking of Twitter as a text-only platform.

Twitter now features visual content more prominently by auto expanding the images in your tweets, so accompanying your content with an image is more important than ever.

Stunning visuals will go a long way to help your updates stand out amongst the other tweets in your followers’ text-dominated Twitter streams.

In fact, studies show that tweets with image links get two times the engagement rate of those without.
