How To Drive Traffic to Your Sites

This is a repost from April of Eluna Jewelry. What a great way to drive sales and blog readers.

This wonderful idea was started by ChristieCottage and has already brought in sales and promotional opportunities to those involved.  Remember “A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds. Francis Bacon. ”  I saw that quote posted on Twitter and it seems to fit the idea, so let us create more opportunities to be seen.
The Twitter Tree will be hosted by a different shop each business day.

Tuesday: http://audreyscountrycrafts.blogspot.com/
Wednesday: http://elunajewelry-nc.blogspot.com/
Thursday: http://aneedleinthehaystack-debbie.blogspot.com/
Friday: http://sweetybird09.blogspot.com/
If you follow me on twitter - please let me know. I don't follow everyone back if I don't know who they are :)
The Twitter Tree Instructions:
You post the item(s) you tweeted for me along with your twitter account so I can follow you, and list 1-3 items (clickable links, Twitter Ready please) from any of your online shops that you would like for me to tweet for you. ( No "mature" items, please). Be sure the item is twitter ready. (Please include a description, not just the link and any #hashtags you would like to use.) 
You may list from multiple stores. However please respect other twitters and post no more than a total of three items. 

Some tweeters use applications like Tweetdeck. This application automatically shortens URLs, and has a difficult time distinguishing between hashtags and URLs when they are not properly spaced. Please place spaces between your URLs and hastags. Failure to do so may result in lower views as your tweets may get corrupted in the system.

Check back throughout the day to tweet the other items listed in the comments. To make life simpler for all those tweeting, please add the hashtag #bluebird to your links. This way it will be easier to re-tweet later in the day. Also if you add the #bluebird hashtag to your items, it will give you a random chance to be featured in the #bluebird daily twitter paper. 

By reaching out through our blog and twitter network, we hope to increase promotion for all our stores and hope to gain a new audience and possibly some sales. 
 
Hope you have a wonderful day and see you in tweetland.

Here are the three items I posted today:







Thanks again to April for a great post! Don't forget to check back on Saturday for the big reveal of the Bead Soup Blog Hop. Until then ......

Cheers,
Stacy

Hi Stacy.

I re-posted your comment with corrections so you will get the traffic to your shop.

I deleted your original post to prevent any confusion for those who are tweeting. Just wanted to let you know in case you stopped in looking for your post.

I will be tweeting soon provided my air-card does not disconnect again.

Thanks
April

That sounds like a lot of work - is it?

I am able to do most of my tweeting during my breaks at work.

Since we ask that links be twitter ready, it becomes a simple case of copying the link from the blog then pasting it to twitter.
