How to Create a Tweetable Link and a Tweetable Quote

By Nick Churick

What’s so good about tweetable links and tweetable quotes?

The answer is simple: They bring you more traffic from Twitter.

If you have a sentence, quote or a sound bite that you think people would love to share, you must make sharing super easy for them.

People are usually lazy, and after they’ve read your awesome post they will not take the time to open up Twitter and paste in the quote to share it. And sure thing, nobody will bother to add your handle and a link to your blog post before tweeting.

I’m sure you have noticed a lot of blogs, using tweetable links and quotes, embedded in their content. By clicking these links you can instantly tweet specific quotes and sound bites alone from the whole post.

Every tweet like this has a link to the post itself, which naturally brings you more traffic from Twitter.

I’m going to show you how to create a tweetable link and a tweetable quote inside your content.

There are several ways; it’s up to you to choose what is best for you.

1. Creating tweetable links manually

You can create tweetable links in your content manually by embedding quite a simple HTML code in your page.

<a href=”http://twitter.com/home/?status=…”>tweet this </a>

Where “tweet this” is a call to action, an anchor text your visitors will actually click.

Let’s see how it works on a telling example.

Say, you have a quote and you want it to be tweeted with a link to your post and a reference to your twitter handle.

Here’s what you do:

1) Pick up a text or quote to be tweeted

Content marketing’s really a question of marketing your content

2) Go to bitly.com, tinyurl.com or goo.gl and get a shortened version of your post link

3) Put it all together into the HTML code

<a href=”http://twitter.com/home/?status=Content marketing’s really a question of marketing your content http://goo.gl/zPU4VX @nickchurick” target=”_blank”>Tweet this!

Using target=”_blank” will make a tweet window open in a new tab of your visitor’s browser.

Here’s what you get:

                                                                                    Tweet this!

You can check how it works by clicking “Tweet this!”

Alternatively you can use whole quote text as anchor text, but as for me, that does not look too good.
