What Results Should You Expect From Twitter?

Twitter is a great way to build and engage an audience with short, timely, relevant messages, but if you’re trying to drive traffic to your website, what results should you expect in terms of click-through rates?

Check out this Infographic by Joanna Franchetti from Sign-Up, who analysed tens of thousands of tweets sent through Sign-Up’s Twitter marketing tools in the first seven months of 2012 to find out the answer.

Sign-Up looked at average click through rates (CTR) from tweets and how this varied by the number of followers, day of the week and time of tweet.

They found that the average click through rate for a tweet is 1.64% (just over half the rate of email, which averages 2.95%), and that this declines rapidly as your number of followers increases. They also found that clicks tend to increase later in the day, peaking at around 6pm.
