How Often Should You Post on Twitter?

Want to learn how I increased traffic from Twitter by 7 multiples? Try this ONE simple Twitter marketing tip.

First, you should be posting multiple times per day. I remember I used to post only once or twice on Twitter. And we recently tested this out again.

I’ve been doing this Twitter posting test multiple times, but with testing things over time. So we recently did a test over a period of one week. During this test, we decided that hey, let’s only post once per day. When we did this during the seven-day period, we averaged 749 visitors for that whole week. It’s not too bad.

Then we decided to do a test where we started posting 40 times per day. I know that’s crazy and insane. I kid you not, 40 times! Now, the traffic didn’t grow by 40 times, but it did go up. The traffic from Twitter went up from 749 to 5,623. The only difference was, posting once a day, to posting 40 times a day.

So if you’re wondering how many times you should be posting on Twitter, well it’s however much content that you have to post. If you only have enough content to post once or twice a day, that’s fine. You can post other status updates, photos, whatever it may be. But ideally, shoot for posting on Twitter at least 10 times per day.

If you do that, you’ll get more traffic from Twitter. It’s that simple. Now all of your posts don’t have to be with links, but some can. I try to put almost all of mine with links.

And when I’m not doing that, I try to engage with the community, have conversations, reply to other people. When you’re replying to other people within your field, you’ll get more engagement.

So then that way, when you do post links back to your site, more people will click on them!
