An excellent way to promote and drive traffic to your site is to add a Tweet This Widget. This widget allows visitors to your site to easily share content from your site directly to their Twitter feed - without having to leave your site!
Here's how to add the Tweet This widget to your site:
- The Tweet This widget is found by going to Widgets.
- Select Social from the drop-down menu.
- Drag and drop a Tweet This widget onto your page.
- Click Edit on the top-left corner of the widget, and you will see the following editing options:
- Button: In this menu, you can edit the layout, change the margin and change the alignment of the widget.
- Tweet Text: This is the text that will be included in your visitor's tweet when they share content from your website.
- URL: This is the URL of the page you'd like to share. You can type in the URL of your site, or you can type in the URL of a specific page. Alternatively, you can set it to "Automatic", and the widget will use the URL for the page it's on.
- Language: You can choose the language that you'd like the Tweet This icon to display in on your site.
- Recommendations: If you want to share your favorite Twitter accounts with your visitors, you can recommend up to two. These will display after they've shared content from your site.
- When you're finished setting up your button, click Save.
- Save your site, and then click Publish to make your changes live.
