Check Out: A Simple Tactic to Write Blog Posts that Go Viral

The first time when I first started my coupon and discount promotion blog, YouLoveCoupon, I was unable to promote my website offers to people effectively because of the lack of knowledge of doing the job. My site became a barren in terms of visitors for months. Nevertheless, the moment I started to share discount and coupon offers like gravity defyer and 48hourprint to my followers on twitter, everything began to change for the better and the site started to experience traffic spikes on regular basis with the use of Twitter marketing technique.

Driving traffic to blog from twitter profile timeline is not an easy task though, you need the required skills like using the right marketing word and some other things to raise people’s curiosity to learn more about the free offer you are sharing with them on the site.

I have carefully outlined below three steps to use twitter to promote your blog or website with discount and coupon offers without spending much money on search engine promotion.

Follow the trend

The first secret that I found useful when I first started using the technique I am sharing with you is that, I make sure that I follow all the trends about the world and make proper use of it to promote my coupon and discount offers to make people come to my blog.

I followed many people on twitter in order to attract them to read my blog by signing up for my offers.

Following the trend in this sense means, that, to know what people want and then try to share a link to a resource post on my site that shows them how to get it at a discounted price.

Share your message with the right word

Another thing you need to take proper care of is the use of words. When it comes to marketing on twitter, there are different types of words you have to ignore and there are words that are supposed to be included in your tweets to make people to consider checking your offers. By understanding this word, you can be very much sure of impelling more people to your blog.

Do not spoil your timeline with bamboozle offers

Any offer that you know does not mean that it is worth promoting – you had better avoid writing anything about such because people that will come to your blog from twitter will have to click out of your site if they later get to know that the offer is not genuine. By following this, you can retain your website integrity and that will increase your traffic from twitter.
