9 Powerful Twitter Marketing Strategies

Did you know that the younger generation mostly gets its news from social media platforms? We are talking about people aged 18 to 35. Rather than wait for the 7 o’clock news, they log onto Twitter and other social media platforms to catch up with news in real-time. Of course, this has caused a dip in traditional ad revenues. But do you know what has grown exponentially because of this trend? Twitter! Now, here is how you can take advantage of this change to better your brand:

Updating Your Profile

Is your profile ready? Before you even start tweeting and retweeting, you need to ensure that everything looks good on your end. Set up your bio and follow people with whom you share similar interests. Is this step necessary? Sure! When you tweet or retweet something that catches people’s eyes, the next step will be to follow the link to your profile. Users will want to know who you are and if you are worth a mention or a follow. So, imagine if they find a blank bio with nothing about who you are and what you stand for. Would they follow you? Would you follow such a person? Enhance your chances of success by cleaning your house before heading out to welcome visitors.

Getting an Audience

How many followers do you have on Twitter? Most new and even existing accounts have few followers. Of course, if you have not been very active in the space, it’s hard to attract a large enough audience. So, how about you buy cheap Twitter followers to get things started? It creates the illusion that you have something good to offer (after all, you have people following you!). You can then use these followers as a base to grow your content and attract more people. But how do you do this? Keep reading for more.

Setting Up Your KPIs

If you want to fail in your Twitter marketing, go in without a clear goal. You need to understand what you want out of the marketing. What do you want? Are you looking for more followers or networks? Do you want to get more leads or more traffic to your site? These are the metrics you will use to gauge if your content marketing has been successful. Figure out how often you will measure your metrics, e.g., every week or month. Then whenever the numbers don’t make sense, you can alter the strategy.

Deciding on a Voice

You are almost ready to start tweeting and retweeting. But before you do so, you need to be true to yourself. Why are you on Twitter? Twitter is awash with different voices- politically, economically, geographically, etc. It’s easy to get lost in this world that always has something to offer. To avoid getting caught up in all the noise and losing your voice, understand what you want to communicate on Twitter. For example, if you are on the platform to market your new music, you must ensure that you follow trends and hashtags relevant to it. While that does not mean you cannot entertain other angles, you should not lose your way. Else, you will not meet your KPIs, which will derail you from your goal.

Creating Content

Like all other social media platforms, you need to be authentic and entertaining/ educative to your audience. Again, you must connect with why you are on Twitter. For example, if you want to sell more bedding, how can you go about this? You could post videos on folding bedding, washing bedding, or even why good bedding is essential. Or you could post blog links or even website sales on your account. Don’t be afraid to veer off the salesy path, and instead, embrace a more entertaining way to sell your products and services. Given that you have a limit on how much you can say about your business, you should keep it short and fun. Also, do not forget to post high-quality pictures and videos. It makes a lot of difference.

Scheduling Your Content

We recommend that you post regularly on your account. Twitter is ever-changing, and what’s trending now will probably be history in a few hours. So, you need to keep it fresh with your followers. Otherwise, they could unfollow you and opt for companies churning out regular content. Of course, it’s hard to stay on top of content, especially if you have many other moving parts. How about scheduling your content? You can decide when the tweets will go out, ideally at least once every day. Consider investing in a marketing automation tool to help you send out tweets at the same time each day.

Gauging Your Content Performance

First, you’ll need to analyze your insights to see when your tweets perform best. There’s no such thing as the best time for tweeting. Some people’s tweets do well in the morning, others at noon and others in the evening. So, you need to understand what works for you by looking at your insights. Then you can schedule your content accordingly. Secondly, you need to look at how responsive people are to your tweets. Are they liking, commenting, or retweeting them? Which tweets have performed best? If you can find a pattern in the most popular tweets, you can create more like these to reach an even bigger audience.

Engaging With Followers

Twitter is a two-way street, and you cannot tweet without engaging with other people on the platform. It comes down to commenting on and retweeting what other people have posted on their accounts if it’s relevant to your niche. You should also reply to people who comment under your tweets, and in doing so, you can build a Twitter community. This online space might be what your business or brand needs to take off in this digital world. Don’t just post. Instead, interact with people, and you will get to know more about what they want to see on your account.

Using Hashtags

Do you want to be more visible on Twitter? Then you cannot escape using relevant hashtags to reach your target audience at the right time.

You barely need to reach into your pockets to actualize the strategies above, and yet, they have paid off for countless businesses. You, too, can be another Twitter marketing success story. Good luck!
