The Art of Getting Retweets [Infographic]

How to Get More RetweetsThroughout the close to three years I am on Twitter, I have tried a ton of different tips and tricks in the hope to get more retweets to my blog posts.

Some proved effective, while others weren’t quite what I hoped for.

It was also some months ago that I wrote a really extensive article that is all about helping you get more retweets (which you might want to check out)…

So now, more than two weeks after publishing an infographic for the first time on this blog and seeing the positive reactions, I believe you might enjoy seeing another one!

This week’s infographic comes from QuickSprout and it overviews the different aspects about tweeting and the way they affect the number of retweets that your content receives. I believe you will find lots of interesting insights and here a some main takeaways to start with:

  • Tweet length – how long should your tweets be for the best chance for retweets
  • Which are the top 20 most retweetable phrases on Twitter
  • Which is the best time to share your most important updates on Twitter

Scroll down to see the actual infographic!

I hope you enjoy it and please take the time to share it with your friends if you do!

  1. Great article Daniel and I love the infographic. One more thing I use your infographic picture in my similar article which I write recently 7 tips to get more retweets hope you don’t mind and I also link your this post in my article which may help my readers to get more information about retweets through your infographics.

  2. Thanks for this. I c find it challenging to get a retweet.

  3. Yet another great post!Just what I will do to increase my clients’ retweet stats.

  4. Hi Daniel,

    I guess it makes sense, that using a call to action such as “Please Retweet”, gets a response. CTA’s seem to work in most other walks of life, so why shouldn’t they on Twitter!

    Great post again,

  5. Great post, Daniel and I love the infographic. Personally, I’m not a big fan of people who ask for RTs unless it’s for a great cause. If someone asks me to RT their most recent blog post, I ignore. If someone asks me to donate a RT to help a homeless shelter, I’m much more inclined to do so.

    I’d be curious to hear what you think of those who ask for RTs for personal gain.


    • Hey Sean,

      You have a point mate. I have to admit though, I’ve been guilty of asking for retweets recently. It really makes a huge difference to how much retweets a tweet will get with a “Please retweet” request and without one. In my defense I can say that the posts I asked for retweets on are not random ones. One was a guest post of mine that got published and the other two new blog posts that I wanted people to pay attention to.

      Thanks for stopping by Sean! :)

  6. Great article! And I appreciate the tips-I’m trying to use twitter more these days, while getting away from Facebook more. Thanks!

    • Joanne,

      Good to be of help! :) As for what you are doing, can’t the two go together? I am currently mostly involved in Facebook, Twitter and Google+ and can’t really say I have a problem keeping up with them.
