Tweet With Photos










Hubby bought a pink LED flashlight for me--just because it's pink. I thought that was so sweet of him :-) While this photograph may not be very inspiring or artistic, I posted it on Twitter. This morning, the results so far were:

I know if I had simply posted a sentence, it wouldn't have received as much attention. I also know that posting from Instagram would not have gotten such results either because Instagram only posts the link. The same is true of Hootsuite, where a link is given to the photo.

My last post on this blog was simply a graphic I made up on Canva.com with a quote from my latest release pasted over a photo I took of Marlu Lake. The results on Twitter were:

Obviously, if I had more Twitter followers, I might have had even better results, but in comparison to my results for a sentence, a link, and some hashtags, this is a much larger percentage of hits. (Of course, I should have added a hashtag to the flashlight as well.)

In one of the best photos I posted last week, I did everything right. I posted a short quote from my latest release, added hashtags and a link to the book on Amazon. Below are the results for that:

A picture is worth a thousand words. On Twitter, a photo can actually stop people from scrolling for a moment.

I suggest you Tweet with pictures. It helps.
