With over 300 million registered users, and 100 million active log ins daily, Twitter is a great social media platform for business. It’s also a useful way to engage with current customers and interact with potential ones.
Prior to our business workshop, ‘Tweeting Goddess’ Samantha Kelly has shared some of her hot Twitter tips below:
First things first, Twitter is a social media platform so remember to chat! Make conversations, comment on people’s posts and build relationships. Be careful not to get caught up in posting too many self-promotion posts as this can become predictable to your followers.
Avoid Facebook links. It has been voted by Twitter users that seeing Facebook links on their newsfeed is very frustrating and that they would never click on them. The whole point of Twitter is to engage, interact and build relationships with your followers, and posting a Facebook link will give the wrong impression.
Welcome newbies of interest. We all enjoy getting valuable notifications so be sure to welcome newbies to give them a boost because you never know what business they can bring your way.
Did you know automated DMs have been voted the number one most annoying thing on Twitter? Are you guilty of sending them?
Create lists and categorize people you follow and engage with so that you can enjoy what they are saying. You can also build lists for leads or potential clients but be sure to name the list something appropriate and make it private.
Ask for help! If you’re struggling with something, ask your followers for inspiration or create Twitter polls to get feedback for content or blog posts.
Be authentic! Use Twitter to get your brand’s tone of voice across and build up a reputation that followers can rely on and trust.
