Another way I’m getting more exposure for my Tweets
I love deals. To the point that it’s almost an obsession. I can’t buy anything for full price anymore and I buy too many things that I don’t really need just because they’re on sale.
So when I found out Groupon was coming to Vancouver I had a mix of excitement and fear. If you don’t know, it’s a site (and app) that gives you a daily deal of 50% off or more from a business in your city (if you live in a big enough place) that’s only released when enough people sign up. It’s a pretty awesome concept, and the deals are even more awesome (click here to check it out).
I was of course on their waiting list months in advance and then the day it went live in Vancouver I went up as the first person to have their tweets featured on the site. On the right side of the screen (toward the bottom) is a section called “Tweets Around Town” and it’s getting the things I write on Twitter in front of a lot of local eyeballs.
How did I get this? I asked for it! I was proactive and contacted Groupon to ask that they include my Tweets and explain why I felt I was a good candidate to be shown on their site. I didn’t wait for them to ask me if they could feature my tweets (wouldn’t that be nice?!?) or just hope that one day my tweets would magically start showing up on their site.
So, another way to get myself out there, get what I’m talking about seen by more people, and get more followers. Every little bit helps because the more people who follow you on social media, the more they’re reminded about who you are and what you’re doing!
What are you going to do to get your tweets seen by more people?
