Are you on Twitter, but still not really sure how to use it efficiently? Well, good for you because I’ll break down some tips to help you on your Tweet game!
How much time should you spend on Twitter? Well, that all depends on your audience. What times during the day are they most active and attentive? You’ll learn that as your really start engaging with your audience. As you build more followers, you’ll realize how you can be of most service. Typically, you’ll want to tweet during the morning, early afternoon, evening, and of course – primetime. Find out what people are genuinely talking about around this time and really learn to pitch your stuff. Once you start allocating your time better, you’ll find that you have more opportunities to do other things.
Retweet Relevant content
If you are doing a blog site on Internet Marketing, then retweet things related to your niche. Maybe write a small response to the person that tweeted. Nothing says interesting than a nice engaging convo even on a micro based site such as Twitter. They’ll more than likely be enticed to share your information and give you a shoutout. Due to their particular demographic and the type of stuff they just retweeted, you may get some followers because you share similar interests. Who knows? You can even set up a joint venture of sorts to get some income.
Your profile picture/profile
A lot of people sleep on this particular element. Don’t you know that you are marketing yourself with your profile? Having a great logo to represent your brand will draw in more initial attention then simply having that egg in place. People will associate you with something tangible. Also, it’s good to have a picture of yourself so that people can see that you actually a living and breathing human rather than a spam bot looking to solely promote a product. Also, in your profile you tell what you do and you actually post a link. What’s the point of all of that traffic to your Twitter without promoting what you are all about? It’s the perfect introduction for brand!
This is tricky because there are people out there that will follow you then unfollow you just to get their followers up. However, find some people you really enjoy and follow them. Not just for the sake of following them but to actually engage and build a relationship! This is how you actually develop long term followers. There is value in both parties.
One of the greatest things about Twitter is that since your messages get straight to the point, using Twitter mobile is really your best bet! You can link your accounts to Tumblr, Facebook, Instagram, and more. You don’t always have to be at your laptop or desktop all the time. You can really be active with your followers while you have a small rest time in between your busy schedule. There are apps out there such as Hootsuite that will post to your multiple accounts at designated times to not only save you time, but help you to get the most of your content reception. Definitely take advantage of this feature!
Getting acquainted with Social Media will help your business thrive. Twitter is a great start.
