What are some tips and tricks to mastering Twitter for business use?

For a while now I've built a twitter profile for any website I set up. I mainly do this so that people can't take my username if the website starts to become popular. If the website doesn't work out, oh well, it's not like I paid to register lol What are some tips and tricks to mastering Twitter for business use?

My question is, if you'd like to share, what tricks and techniques do you do in order to master twitter for business?

What is an affective way to build your followers? Do you contact people and invite them to connect with you or do you just let it happen? I've been trying the natural way and it's been working, but at a snails pace and by the time I have 10,000 followers I'll be dead What are some tips and tricks to mastering Twitter for business use?

How do you entice people to retweet? Do people retweet certain tweets more often if they have an offer or something beneficial to someone? Or are the retweets completely random and you have no control over them?

Can you purchase a campaign to build your followers that will actually build real followers? How much does this tend to cost? I know you can get 10,000 followers for around $10 but they don't seem to be real followers and they drop off after a week or so. Do you know of a credible seller here on seoclerks.com? If so, could you share their service URL?

Any tips and tricks you guys and girls can offer up would be amazing What are some tips and tricks to mastering Twitter for business use? If you ever have a question and I know the answer, I'll gladly answer it for you What are some tips and tricks to mastering Twitter for business use?


Thanks,

We use Hootsuite which lets you make scheduled tweets, posts etc and manage social media more easily. However, one of the features that I really like is the ability to find tweets relating to specific hashtags and then create a stream for those hashtags, so that if anything relevant is tweeted, it comes up in a feed. Just making replies to relevant content has produced a pretty good result. And, I think that technique is offering exposure to a whole other group of freelancers/writers outside the platform. So it's basically like we are out breaking out of our bubble. So long as the replies are relevant, it has amazing response.

Using a hashtag finder to get more relevant hashtags is a good idea, and another thing that has worked so far to put our tweets out in front of a the right audience, who is not already part of the SEOClerks Marketplace.

We get better engagement, retweets, etc when tweets have a nice image, meme, something relevant or eye-catching. And, what type of image you post will be solely dependent on what you offer.

Consistent engagement on a regular basis is likely the most important aspect of our social media strategy at this point. Just being ever present, all the time, in a helpful non-spammy way.

I'm always looking to pick up more relevant techniques for reaching our Twitter audience and bringing people in and will love to hear what others are saying on this.

I was actually looking into hootsuite What are some tips and tricks to mastering Twitter for business use?

What kind of conversions are you seeing, Beverly? Are you getting instant sign ups or does it take a few back and forth conversations before the person decides to sign up?

Now I'm selling a product that is usually $500+ so my conversions aren't always high, but the profits are pretty good when I do get a sign up lol. We do offer a sale price every once in a while, do you think that would be a good way to get people to sign up with us? A few times a year we'll give a $200 discount on all services in order to create new clients, but I'm just not sure how well it would work on twitter since I'm pretty much a newbie on there lol What are some tips and tricks to mastering Twitter for business use?

Do you think I'd have to build up my profile a lot before getting any conversions?
Time is money, but if I can automate my twitter business profile using a third party software/website then it would definitely be worth it to sit down for one day a month and push out a social plan of attack.

Can you advertise on twitter? I think I read somewhere that you could but it was pretty expensive since they want to work with certain budgets and don't offer cost per click to just anyone What are some tips and tricks to mastering Twitter for business use? If they offer a cost per click option and it's not ridiculously priced then I'd definitely be interested.

Well, there are a few more questions for you Beverly What are some tips and tricks to mastering Twitter for business use? Sorry I didn't think about them for my original post.


Thanks,

As you said, you're dealing with a much different price point, so your conversion is probably different. And, at this point, we're on a public relations campaign so it's more about introducing the company brand to an entirely new audience; convincing people out there who don't know about us or are with the competitor(s) that 'we are the one' and it's an on-going process, time consuming but worthwhile. Engaging with social influencers is helping a lot, and who that person/people is will vary depending upon your niche or product. We're seeing a very positive influx of quality buyers lately, and that can be heavily attributable to a variety of factors including stronger social media presence.

My question is, if you'd like to share, what tricks and techniques do you do in order to master twitter for business?

Make sure your Twitter profile page has a nice cover image and you're using your logo as the profile image. Make sure you put what it is your business is about in the description and put some relevant #hashtags there too. You'd be surprised how many people neglect that. What I do is find my competitors twitter accounts, then follow all their followers. Their followers are going to be interested in their products so the chances are they will be interested in yours too if it's the same or similar products/services you have. Obviously not everyone will follow you back, but seeing as there are hundreds of twitter accounts that are related to your site/service/products, you can find other accounts and follow their followers as well. Also when people follow you back, send them a DM to thank them for it and ask them to tweet you too or do tweet4tweet. It can really help if they tweet you and ask their followers to follow you, not everyone will do that but it's still worth doing.
What is an affective way to build your followers?

The above way of finding your competitors accounts and then following their followers is an excellent method to go about getting followers that are REAL and are likely interested in your products/services. Another method is to the same thing but on other social media sites like Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Instagram etc. Search for your keywords, identify your competitors, view their followers and start following them. When they follow you back, message them (if that option is available) to say thanks and ask them to follow you on twitter too.
Do you contact people and invite them to connect with you or do you just let it happen?

Both, eventually it will just start happening when you get big enough. But if you don't want to do it yourself you can always hire a social media manager to do it for you. If you want to know more about that, check here on how to find a social media manager.
Can you purchase a campaign to build your followers that will actually build real followers? How much does this tend to cost?

You can now purchase several types of Twitter ads for tweet engagement, website clicks or conversions, app installs, video views, leads or followers. You can filter options, choose a country to target, You can add interests, tailored audiences, behaviors and event targeting, set your ad details and set a daily budget. The price will vary depending on which filters you chose, it's best to create a demo ad first so you can get a feel for it but it's all pretty straight forward. If you've ever spent any time playing with Facebook ads you'll be right at home!
Do you know of a credible seller here on seoclerks.com? If so, could you share their service URL?

There are some highly recommended freelancers on the Hire a Freelancer page. There are some twitter promotion services but most of these just add egg followers (not real followers) to your account which is completely useless in terms of the engagement they provide.

Hope this helps! What are some tips and tricks to mastering Twitter for business use?

Twitter is a powerful tool that businesses should make good use of. There are various ways how you can become a master at twittering ;)

  • Show that your business has a Twitter account, so include the Twitter logo on the website, blog, product, email signature and wherever else you contact your client or can encourage them to become your followers.
  • Retweet content
  • Ask for retweets and offer something to those who retweet, such as a discount, a coupon code.
  • Get into conversations that relate with your business or product/service so as to get noticed.
  • Consider advertising on Twitter.

Just like any good marketing activity in social media, using Twitter for your business would require you to be discretionary in your tweets. It is not a good idea to tweet 5 times in a day and all about your business, I guess you know what I mean by that. But before starting the marketing of your business in Twitter, you have to establish your presence by tweeting informative items to gain more followers. The more followers you have, the more effective your marketing will be.
