Retweeting your PDFs
After the effort of writing that whitepaper, case study, or eBook, wouldn’t it be great if it could grow legs and walk?
Of course you have a call to action and, naturally, visitors flock to your landing page to download and savor your outstanding content. Your reader may share your content with a colleague or friend and email them a link or a copy.
But, wouldn’t it be way cooler if they shared your genius with everyone in their network?
