A big part of the social media landscape is about sharing and reciprocation, you have probably noticed, when you share someone elses posts, they are more likely to check out what you do and maybe even share some of your posts. However there are also various other ways to get shares from other people with platforms like Triberr or Empire Ave who now offer missions.
And now its time to tell you about this great platform to get more shares on social media, there has been many similar like this that have come and gone, and I don’t know why because I think they are a great idea.
How to get some extra cheeky shares on your blog posts
Its a platform called JustRetweet owned by Chris Fong – I’m not sure if he was the founder, it doesn’t say. JustRetweet has actually been around for a couple of years, but I think at the time I signed up there wasn’t many active users, and I sort of forgot about it, because you need active users for this type of platform, or it just doesn’t work. The good news is its more active now, I’ve already had a few shares. I also believe it used to be for just RT’s twitter (hense the name) but now you can also share on Google+ and like on Facebook which is awesome.
The way JustRetweet works is brilliant. It works on a credit system.
You need credits to offer people so they they will share your posts on social networks – so unlike Triberr where you offer your posts to share and some people will share and some not, or Empire Ave where you aren’t actually supposed to ASK people to share but suggest they look at your post in return for “eavs” (like credits) both these systems can seem unfair if the other users aren’t reciprocal or fair with their actions.
How does the credit system work on JustRetweet
If you share someones posts or follow them you get credits – these credits can then be used to submit your posts to share. So not only are you quickly finding great content to share on your social networks you are also building new connections and gaining more followers.
You can also choose how many credits you want to offer – some people might offer as little as 5 credits to share a post – and others offer 50 credits, it probably depends how many credits users have accumulated.
I love also that you can search for posts you want to share by
and then by categories such as
- Social Media
which makes it easier than having to scroll through loads of topics that are not relevant to your own networks.
Another great thing as when people sign up using their Twitter account and authenticating their email address, the first post they submit to JustRetweet will be moderated, so cutting out spam or overly promotional posts.
You might worry when you are using these sites is that they might send autotweets or follow people without your permission – JustRetweet does not do that, its very serious about no spam and no scams has a lot of rules that you need to follow to prevent yourself getting banned.
There are even categories that aren’t allowed on the site
- Payday Loads
I think this list is a bit too stringent personally – as I do sometimes blog about music and I know some great relationship blogs.
I would suggest that you read in full that JustRetweet Frequently Asked Questions to find out about all of the rules, to see if you fit in. I hope you do – and I hope you see you there, so you can find out – How to get some extra cheeky shares on your blog posts!
