    Hey Carol,

    Great overview of the program! I’ve been working with it for about a month now and I have been able to get a handful of visitors from it (around 100), but they just don’t seem all that interested in what I have to say.

    Since I track comments and subscribers in Google Analytics, I can see that no activity is generated from these visits. Of course I haven’t put all that much effort into it, but I have found that I would get much better results with 100 visitors from forums or something else like that.

    I’m sure some people are getting results from it since the site is doing pretty well, but maybe it would benefit other niches more than mine.

    Thanks for the post,
    -Gabe Johansson

      Hi Gabe!

      I think 100 visitors in a month is GREAT! “Activity generated” is relative…….check the bounce rate from these visits…. I am pleased to be able to provide value and know that they stick on my site for a certain length of time. It takes several “trips” in order to get the conversion in my experience, but we all provide unique content, a an individual user experience when they land on the site. Engaging them to gobble up the awesome content straight away is key. I think you ARE getting good results. If you are getting 100 visitors per month for free, I would say that is good! :)

      It’s all in the perspective I guess, everyone has a different view. I just found JustRetweet so don’t have stats yet, but preliminary numbers look very good!

      Have a Blessed Day!

        Yeah I am still running some tests, but my overall blog average conversion rate from first time visitors is about 10% which is why I’m a tad discouraged.

        You’re definitely right about more conversions happening if you can bring visitors back though, which is why I am going to keep it going. I might join Blog Engage as they are giving 1500 Just Retweet credits away for signing up for the $10/month package. Plus the links and traffic from there can really help

        Thanks again,
        -Gabe

          Hi Gabe,

          Sounds like you’re a numbers guy, which is great! Yeah, I am going to do the featured member for JustRetweet.

          Great ideas about Blog Engage! Yep, for sure a good idea. Thanks for stopping by to share your thoughts. :)

    Hello Carol,

    I am new to JustRetweet and so far, the service and features they offer are great. You are right about the benefits of using JustRetweet as I can use this to promote special offers and discounts to my customers. The feature that I like most is the tracking feature which allows me to see who has retweeted my posts, track new followers, see who has viewed my website and more.

    This is very informative article Carol. Thank you for sharing this with us.

    I have used a different site to get people to share my content but haven’t used Just Retweet yet although I may have heard of it before. It looks like a great way to get twitter followers and for people to tweet your content.
    Will definitely check it out and start using it once I get my twitter business profile set up.
    Thanks for the info!

      Hi Jonathan,

      How nice to see a comment from you! Thanks for stopping by.

      Yeah, JustRetweet is a nice way to get the ball rolling and provides a bit of momentum with traffic and social shares, but these are folks that usually don’t comment, so just know that going in.

      You have to go to their site and start engaging with them in order to build the relationship, which I have and it’s a lot of fun and beneficial to all.

      Appreciate it, and hope you have a great rest of your Thursday!
