How to Use Twitter for Business – Generate Leads and Traffic
If you want to generate more leads and traffic through Tweeting, learn these basics. It’s another great marketing method that can extend your reach and help you get leads.
Since it’s the tenth most visited website in the world, take advantage by leveraging the people who are already there! That is what social media is about and it doesn’t take a lot of time.
- Create an attractive Twitter profile. This is your first step. Upload a friendly, smiling photo of yourself. I like to work with fun people, do you? Smile! Write a profile bio that is friendly and relates to people. Everyone is selling something on this social platform and the salesy bio is just another boring one. Be different! Stand out from the crowd and write something fun and interesting about YOU. Not what you are selling. This is key in learning how to use Twitter for business. People buy YOU.
- Automate to save time. This is well worth it. I personally use SocialOomph. It has 2 powerful features that you must use. The automatic DM (direct message) and automate follow. When someone follows you, a message will automatically be sent to that person. You determine what the message is. Keep it friendly and NOT a sales pitch! For followers, you’ll be able to automatically follow them back. This is a huge time saver especially if you are getting 10 to 20 new followers a day.
- Write attractive Tweets. Since everyone on Twitter is a sales person, be different. Sure, you can sell but who are you? Use the rules of attraction marketing by providing content and value to your followers. Talk about a book you read, a seminar experience, or something like that. What you learn about gives you content to talk about. And don’t forget to retweet and reply to others with compliments and other interesting content.
Thank you for your great post on using twitter for business. Twitter should be an important part of the social media strategy for any business that finds success through networking.
