Using WordPress is great.

Using Twitter is a no-brainer.

But when you can use BOTH together?

Well, that’s a recipe to grow your business very quickly…

…because you’ll attract lots of targeted visitors to your website.

And today, I’ll help you do just that — I’m going to cover 9 WordPress plugins you can start using right now to boost your Twitter marketing efforts.

Some of them are free.

Some of them are paid.

But when it comes to making your live easier, all of them work like magic.

Of course, I don’t expect you to install every one of them. But if you take look through the list, I’ll bet dollars to doughnuts you’ll find at least one that can help you.

Here you go:

1. Tweetable Shortcode v.2 — Quick Tweet Sentences

“Tweetable plugin for WordPress allows you to make a sentence as a quick sharing tweet.”

The problem with your typical social media buttons is that you can’t share specific phrases or sections within a blog post. I mean, if you stumble upon a phrase or sentence you’d love to share with your followers, a standard Twitter button won’t help — you’d have to do the job manually.

Tweetable gets rid of this issue. It allows your readers to share sentences from your blog posts with the ease of a click.

All you need to do is install Tweetable, select the text you want to turn into a shareable quote, click the Tweetable button, and voila!

That simple.

Some of its top features include:

  • Integration with Bit.ly to shorten your links
  • Add your Twitter username at the end of the Tweetable sentence to attract new followers

Price: $12

2. Sumome Image Sharer

“Image Sharer makes it dead simple for your readers to auto-magically share the images on your site and link back to you, driving you viral traffic.”

It’s no secret that images make your content more engaging.

As a matter of fact, content with relevant images gets 94% more views than content without relevant images, according to Kissmetrics.

Not only that, a couple of years ago, Buffer found that visual content is more than 40X more likely to get shared on social media than other types of content.

In simpler words, Sumome Image Sharer can dramatically increase your traffic by allowing your visitors to share your visual content with the ease of a click.

Pretty cool, huh?

Some of its top features include:

  • Choose the social networks where your images can be shared
  • Choose sharing buttons placement

Price: Free

3. Social Warfare

“A WordPress plugin that adds beautiful, lightning-fast social share buttons to your website or blog.”

Social Warfare is our favorite social sharing plugin here at Social Quant (yes, you can see this plugin in action right in this blog post).

Here’s why:

Unlike the majority of social sharing solutions out there, Social Warfare doesn’t bog down your website. In fact, it loads lightning quick. And when you consider the fact that a slow load time can hurt your SEO and kill your conversion rate, this plugin is really helpful.

Also, Social Warfare provides you with some of the best looking social sharing buttons on the net, and you can customize them to match your brand colors.

Some of its top features include:

  • Customize Tweets that are populated when visitors click your Twitter button
  • Create in-post Tweetable quotes
  • Display Twitter Cards with ease
  • Mobile-optimized social sharing buttons
  • Analytics integration

Price: Starting at $24/year

4. CardZ

“CardZ makes it easy and fun to customize the social experience that you offer your website visitors. With over 15 themes and colors to choose from, your social stream can be integrated elegantly into almost any design.”

As you may know, not all your blog readers and visitors follow you on Twitter. So, a Social Stream is the perfect way to organize your most relevant updates and shared content into a single place and entice your “non-followers” to follow you.

Now, for those who aren’t familiar with the term “Social Stream,” here’s a good definition from ManageWP:

“A social stream, often referred to as a lifestream, is a single stream of posts and updates from various social networks. It displays your status updates along with items that you’ve shared like links, images, and videos. Some social streams even display your social interactions with others that you’re connected to.”

That said, CardZ is one of the coolest social streaming plugins we’ve come across. Some of its top features include:

  • Create your own custom posts and add them to the stream
  • Analytics integration
  • Fully responsive themes
  • 20+ optimized CSS3 loading animations
  • Complete control over the content that’s being pulled in

Price: $22

5. TweetDis

“TweetDis allows you to display shareable quotes within your content.”

Earlier in this post, I covered a plugin called “Tweetable,” remember? Well, TweetDis works in a similar way. It allows you to turn simple phrases into shareable quotes, but instead of just highlighting those sentences – like Tweetable does – you can create beautifully designed boxes.

This allows you to grab the attention of your readers more quickly.

Some of its top features include:

  • Beautiful templates
  • Image designs
  • Mention your Twitter username in every tweet
  • Shorten links via Bit.ly
  • Make the quote float to the side and wrap it with text

Price: Starting at $37

6. Revive Old Post

“Plugin to share about your old posts on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn to get more hits for them and keep them alive.”

Listen:free-twitter-ebook-1

This is one of the most powerful plugins for Twitter you can get. Why? The answer is very simple: It allows you to “re-queue” your old content and share it on Twitter over and over again.

This allows you to keep your account fresh, even if you don’t create new content. Some of its top features include:

  • Choose the time between posts
  • Filter content by hashtags
  • Exclude specific topics
  • Exclude categories
  • Choose the number of posts you want to share

Price:  Free (Premium Version Available)

7. Twitter Auto Publish

“The Twitter Auto Publish lets you publish posts automatically from your blog to Twitter.”

This plugin is really simple, but make no mistake, simple can still be powerful. If you want an easy-to-use solution to automate the sharing process on Twitter, the Twitter Auto Publish plugin works like magic.

With a couple of clicks, you can automate one of the most tedious tasks of Twitter Marketing and save a ton of time.

Some of its top features include:

  • Simple-to-use interface
  • Publish messages to Twitter with image
  • Enable or disable WordPress page publishing
  • Filter items to be published based on custom post types

Price: Free

8. JM Twitter Cards

“Easy integration of Twitter cards in WordPress. All card types provided.”

If you’re serious about Twitter Marketing, you MUST use Twitter Cards. Why? Because they’re the easiest, most effective to way to turn your Twitter followers into visitors and leads.

In words of Twitter:

“With Twitter Cards, you can attach rich photos, videos and media experience to Tweets that drive traffic to your website. Simply add a few lines of HTML to your webpage, and users who Tweet links to your content will have a “Card” added to the Tweet that’s visible to all of their followers.”

That said, the JM Twitter Cards plugin for WordPress makes that job much (and I mean, much) easier. All you need to do is install the plugin, follow the step-by-step instructions the plugin provides, and you’re all set.

Some of its top features include:

  • Customize Twitter Cards experience
  • Compatible with Yoast and All-in-One SEO plugins

Price: Free

9. Twitter’s Official WordPress Plugin

“Official Twitter, Vine, and Periscope plugin for WordPress. Embed content and grow your audience.”

This plugin allows you to embed single tweets, multiple tweets, moments, and even vines on your website. This is an awesome way to enrich your content and make it more clear, coherent and -more importantly – shareable.

For example, if you read the Kissmetrics blog, you’ll find a ton of embedded Tweets throughout their content. This simple “trick” increases the perceived value of their blog posts and entices you to interact with the tweets as well.

It’s a win-win.

Some of its top features include:

  • Embed Twitter content on your WordPress site
  • Add a Tweet button to public posts
  • Enable link previews and Twitter bylines with Twitter Cards
  • Twitter follow button
  • Periscope On Air button
  • Associate WordPress accounts with Twitter and Periscope identities
  • Add an advertising pixel with a shortcode

Price: Free

In Conclusion…

Before you go, I want to show you four stats — published by Business2Community — that prove the effectiveness of Twitter as a marketing channel:

  • Around 79 percent of users recommend brands that they follow
  • Around 42 percent of consumers learn about new products and services via Twitter
  • Around 85 percent of users feel more connected to businesses after following them
  • Twitter has over 316 million active monthly Twitter users

Of course, you don’t necessarily need Twitter to grow your business, but it’s one of the most effective channels in today’s day and age. And these 9 WordPress plugins will make the job much easier.
