Are you aware of Twitter aggregator called Tweetmeme? If you are, then you’ll be glad to know that the folks at Tweetmeme will be rolling out some new “image buttons” that you can use in other sites to give your valuable tweets more chances of getting “retweet”. This image button is similar to Techmeme’s retweet buttons which show the number of retweets your post has as well as the link for those who haven’t done so, to retweet your updates.
The new image buttons can be placed anywhere on the web, be it a WordPress.com blog, an email signature, or even in RSS feeds. This is in a way a promotional gig, especially if most of your tweets contain valuable links and other bits and pieces that are informative enough.
Putting a retweet button in your articles’ RSS feeds gives your reader a quick way of promoting your articles. Once they see the retweet image buttons in the RSS feeds they can easily retweet your posts.
For email, you can paste the retweet image button in any HTML-based email. You can even use it as an email signature. If you published weekly blog newsletter, this new retweet image button is a valuable tool for promoting your newsletter.
In addition, Tweetmeme is also about to launch a more detailed analytics package. With this new tool, you can track the trend of a particular story, and more importantly get a list of people who retweeted your store.
These new Tweetmeme features will be rolled out in the coming days or weeks. In the meantime, if you’re not using Tweetmeme yet, now may be the right time to do so. Check out the Tweetmeme page here.
