The Most Effective Marketing Technique on Twitter!

==================================================
ANNOUNCEMENT: 01/22/2012
==================================================
The IDRTG website has been recently updated:
- Website is now much faster.
- Earned points don't expire anymore. Members can save points for big campaigns.
- Maximum retweet value is 200 points to give members more retweets.
==================================================

Dear Indie Developer,

Your effectiveness on using Twitter as a marketing tool is not measured by the number of followers you have, but rather by the number of times you get RE-TWEETED (RTed)!

Do you want to be RTed by 100s of people? Do you want your tweets to reach 1000s of people? If that's possible, imagine how much exposure your tweets will have. That will eventually translate into higher number of downloads for your apps $$$. We have good news for you! This is possible TODAY!

We have formed a retweet group for all indie developers that want to help each other get the maximum exposure. The group is called "Indie Developers RT Group" #IDRTG

Here is an explanation of why using the recommended template to request retweets.

PLS RT <Your Tweet> #IDRTG


PLS RT (Highly Recommended)

Take a look at this article (The Science of ReTweets)

Quote:
When we start to analyze the semantic content of highly-ReTweeted tweets, a few trends start to become apparent:

- Calls to action (as in: “please ReTweet”), while they might sound cheesy, work very well to get ReTweets.
So this part of the recommended template is optional, but it's highly recommended. Member can also use other forms to call for action like Please Retweet, RT Please, Retweet, RT PLZ ...


#IDRTG (Required)

This is the hashtag that will be used to mark tweets by our group members. Here are the benefits:

1- If a team member uses #IDRTG in a tweet, that means other team members should read it and take action. It could be an informational tweet or a retweet request. But #IDRTG should be used mostly for requesting retweets and it should not be misused.

2- Tweets with #IDRTG can be tracked using this website http://trendistic.com/idrtg or hashtags.org - idrtg. This is an excellent way to find out the best time to get retweeted (When most group members are active). So far early morning [EST Time] seems to be the best time to get more retweets. This is also a way to track our progress.

3- As we get more group members, the Tweets steam for the IDRTG list will get very busy sometimes. You can click on the #IDRTG on any tweet and it will show all tweets with that hashtag. You can also search for tweets with that hashtag. This is very helpful when using Twitter app on your iPhone to quickly retweet other members. Click here #IDRTG

4- If someone views the information of a tweet that has #IDRTG hashtag, Twitter will show other tweets with the same hashtag. This gives tweets more exposure.

5- There are more benefits ...
