Sure you’re doing lots of writing, but is anyone reading it? Social media is a great way to promote your newsletter and blog to get more reading and more subscriptions. Particularly on Twitter, you could post a different call-to-action as often as daily. And with the new saved templates functionality in Hootsuite, you can create them once and then schedule regularly.
I’ve created this Excel spreadsheet with some newsletter promotional tweets already composed. You will need to fill in the blanks and make them your own, but it’s a starting point. With a little more tweaking, you can also use these tweets to promote your blog.
Note: Keep in mind that Twitter now counts all links as 20 characters regardless of actual length.
