Twitter Landing Page
Few weeks ago I decided to set up a Twitter Landing Page for my new Twitter followers to visit from my Twitter profile.
See New Page Here http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com/twitterwelcome
My thinking was that it would be nice to have a more personal page for just my Twitter followers to visit and where I can Introduce myself and share more information on Twitter that they will be looking for
With a introduction to who I am and sharing posts about Twitter, it will make it much easier to reach my goals.
Below I will break down each section of the Landing Page and why I chose to do things the
way I did, also will share 2 BIG things you should NOT do on your Twitter Landing page.
Say Hello – Share What To Expect
Here I wanted to start with a simple introduction to who I am and the blog. This simple step should make it easier to first, build that new relationship and then attract a new Twitter and blog follower.
I tell them that I will be sharing 10 Posts about Twitter, that way it keeps their attention and they know they know what to expect. I also share more about what the blog is about and how I can help them. Throw in some nice anchor text links for some nice cross blog linking
I end it with a nice Thank You again, hopefully that was enough to get them to continue and read one or all the posts on the page.
Make Them See The Power
I added this image just to show the power Twitter has to drive traffic to a blog or website. Seeing these massive numbers on Twitter should get anyone excited haha I know It does for me.
This should work well for getting them excited for the potential Twitter has and nice lead in to how I can help them get that Twitter Traffic.
Post Design Idea
Here is where I added all of my Twitter posts I have. I went with 10 because I couldn’t choose the top 5 haha
I would recommend maybe 5 posts, but the 10 posts does help with cross linking in the blog, so it’s a good thing anyway.
I chose to do an image grab of the posts instead of just a link so people could see the number of tweets the post received. I believe people will be more ready to read a post that has 100 RTs then a post that has 2 RTs.
Help Continue The Learning
Here I do this at the bottom of most of my pages.. it helps with navigating the reader to the most important parts of my blog where they can learn more and again cross linking bonus.
To track the clicks to my Twitter page I use MaxBlogPress Ninja Affiliate Plugin, I added my url and shortened it to a nice looking link.
Well on Twitter if you shorten the link for tracking and add the link to your Twitter profile, people will be less likely to click it thinking it is an affiliate link.
But with Ninja Affiliate my link looks like this..
On Twitter, all they will see is the first half of that link, which is my blog url, so it will get clicked no problem.
Also you will get better click tracking too.. great simple tool.
Set One Up Today
There isn’t much you can do wrong with your Twitter Landing page, if you introduce yourself, and share some targeted posts and info then you are good.
The one BIG No No, is to try and sell them on a product or push a sign up form.
This is your first impression to a new Twitter follower, or potential Twitter follower and you don’t want the first impression to be you selling your shit.
This page should be all about welcoming them and introducing yourself, then give them some helpful posts you wrote about Twitter…That’s It!
I am working on an added idea for this page, that I can do with a few bloggers Twitter pages.. but I will share that another day
