We all want readers, website visitors, and/or employees to easily share your content through their Twitter channels. But maybe you aren’t quite sure how to make that possible. We are here to help! Here is an easy how to guide to generating click-to-tweet links for your content.

 

clicktotweet

First, visit clicktotweet.com.

 

Compose your tweet

While on clicktotweet.com, craft the tweet you would like to make shareable. Keep in mind that just like twitter, you only have 140 characters to work with. So if you are going to add links make sure you shorten them with a url-shortener like bit.ly.

Hyperlink Text

Once you’ve composed your tweet, click the “Generate Link” button to create a custom link. Then, copy the generated link from the “Here’s your URL” field and hyperlink the text you want shared.

For example, if you found this article helpful, just click here to share it!

If you’d like to take things a step further, you can craft a click to tweet button for users to share your content. Here is a great guide on how to do that from the awesome people at hubspot.com.

How to Craft a Button Click-to-Tweet CTA

1) Create Custom Button

First, you’ll need a social media image and/or button to link to. If you don’t have time to design or create one, have no fear! We have an array of pre-built social media icons in our collection of 135 free icons you can download and use in your ebooks, blog posts, and other content.

2) Craft Tweet

As per the instructions above, go to clicktotweet.com and craft your tweet.

3) Hyperlink Button

Click the “Generate Link” button to create a custom link and copy the generated link from the “Here’s your URL” field. Instead of hyperlinking text, though, insert your social media icon into your blog post, ebook, or website, and simply hyperlink it with the link generated from Click to Tweet.

Here’s my last chance to get you to tweet out this post … I mean, see some examples of how this looks once all is said and done:

For what it’s worth, I am by no means suggesting you use four Twitter CTAs in your content. Just trying to show the different options available for hyperlinking with our free icons set.
