Understanding the essence of Twitter not just as a platform, but as a virtual space for real-time conversations, and how to harness it for business growth.
While many businesses have a presence on Twitter, not all harness its true potential. Engaging in active conversations can result in brand visibility, trust, and growth. If you’re not in the conversation, you’re missing out.
Most businesses believe that just tweeting regular updates or sharing promotional content is enough. They miss the boat on the “conversational” nature of Twitter.
“Mastering social media engagement for business growth is less about the technology and more about genuine, human-to-human conversations.”
I once worked with a local bakery, ‘Sweet Delights.’ They posted pictures of their pastries daily, but engagement was low. It was only when they began actively conversing – sharing baking tips, responding to comments, participating in baking challenges, and starting conversations around popular dessert trends- that they saw growth in followers and in actual customers walking through their doors.
Here are 5 tips that you can do to maximize the power of Twitter marketing:
- Listen First: Before you tweet, listen.
Example: A popular ice cream brand noticed a trend where users were talking about “midnight ice cream cravings.” They chimed in, starting a conversation about favorite midnight flavors, which went viral.
- Ask Questions: Engage your audience by asking for their opinion.
Example: A shoe brand once tweeted, “High heels or flats for a Friday night?” The responses were numerous, and it sparked a whole conversation.
- Utilize Polls: Twitter polls get people involved.
Example: A bookshop used a poll to ask which book they should offer a discount on the following week. Not only did this engage users, but it ensured footfall the next week.
- Respond to Mentions: Every mention is an opportunity.
Example: When a customer tweeted about their love for a restaurant’s new dish, the restaurant didn’t just ‘like’ the tweet. They responded, starting a conversation about ingredients and sharing a related mini-recipe.
- Collaborate with Influencers: An influencer’s voice can amplify your brand’s voice.
Example: A skincare brand partnered with an influencer for a Q&A session on skincare routines. It drove massive engagement and product inquiries.
Relation to Adding Twitter Feed to Websites:
