If you are a business owner and you’re looking for simple ways to improve your Twitter strategy, here are ten easy-to-apply Twitter tips that you can use.
1. Optimize your brand’s twitter profile
Use your brand logo as the user photo. Do not use your personal photo or stock images. Use your brand name as the user name and not your personal name. Don’t forget to put your brand’s or business’s location, website address, description on the profile.
2. Be consistent with your tweets
Your brand’s Twitter activity should be planned and consistent. Whether you decide to send 5 tweets or 10 tweets daily, it’s all up to you. What’s important is to set up a daily goal and try to stick to it.
To help you feed and track your Twitter account, use Buffer. This social media tool has tremendously enhanced our twitter account, @successcitylv. We were able to compose, schedule and create an image, all in one app.
3. Interact with your brand’s followers
Interact with your brand’s followers by replying them and retweeting their tweets. You should do this every day. Engaging with your followers is vital in growing your audience. Your followers typically unfollow inactive users. Be sure to visit analytics.twitter.com, to find out when most of your followers are online.
At Success City Online, we’ve set up a time to interact with our followers. This way we can build relationships with our audience as well as the top influencers in the industry.
4. Use keyword hashtags in your tweets
