I want you to ask yourself these 3 questions…
Are you increasing your followers on a weekly basis?
Are you using #hashtags to promote your tweets?
Do you constantly monitor twitter insights to get a better idea how well your account is performing?
If so and you still find that engagement levels are low, then perhaps something is wrong. In this article you will find out how to get noticed on Twitter through a range of different tips and tricks known within the digital marketing world.
There are roughly 313 million monthly active users using Twitter generating about 500 million tweets per day. That’s more or less 5800 tweets posted each second. When you put it in those terms, its crazy to picture how much content escalates on a daily basis right? So here goes the first tip…
Building meaningful relationships with your followers, influencers and affiliates is a great way to start. The more people share and engage with your tweets, the higher reach you will get. And this does not mean simply retweeting one’s tweet, but actually taking the time to build a relationship. You need consistency and support from others.
We have asked industry experts to share their experiences and top tips to succeed, generate traffic and increase sales using twitter. But before we get into the nitty-gritty of it all, lets take a look at some of the problems, marketers and we business owners experience with Twitter.
Answering messages sent from those we follow
Not enough content of our own to publish and share
If you have realised, they are all time consuming activities.
Problem 1: Answering ALL messages sent from those we follow can be a real pain in the neck. HOWEVER, it is therefore important to recognise messages, which are automated, or from individuals who truly want to build a relationship.
Problem 2: The quote ‘content is king’ is popular for a reason! And that’s because people are searching for good content and solutions to their problems. If you don’t have the time to write good content or it’s simply not your thing, find someone who is passionate about writing and offer him or her the opportunity! This is really one of the most crucial parts to your business, if you want to improve your SEO and drive traffic to your website. Remember you can also share rich content with PR and not just on your social media platforms.
Problem 3: Surprisingly enough the other day I came across a platform called likeablehub, which gives you FREE access to thousands of engaging content ideas to share and schedule all in one place. Super easy tool to use and save time.
Now here’s some insight into what industry experts suggest.
We contacted 5 Twitter experts in the UK and asked them these 3 main questions:
How long do you spend on twitter each day?
Do you use social media management tool? If so, which one?
Suggest one way to boost engagement on Twitter.
These were their answers:
“Your twitter profile reflects your personal brand. One of the best ways to get noticed is to use the “pinned tweet” feature. When people check out your Twitter profile, they will see which tweet, subject, event, or what ever subject you want that is “top of mind”. You therefore have the ability to get the subject most important to you, to the reader. You will also find this Tweet is more likely to be retweeted, shared, liked etc.
