Use Twitterfeed to automate most of the time consuming notification process. Use Twitter at conferences and trade shows. You can let your customers see what you are seeing and doing in real time. It can be fun and captivating to them. Watch what others are saying. Be diplomatic when necessary, fun when opportunity presents, contribute to the conversation because it is a two way street. Compliment as often as possible and thank those that compliment you and make good on any complaints. In other words, interact on a personal level as well as a business level. Include some of the same information on Twitter as you do on your website to keep customers that follow you on Twitter informed. Promote events such as upcoming sales or special events that are about to occur that would be of interest.
Direct people to other resources you use for marketing like your blog, website and other social media. You can customize your home page and use a template that mirrors your website with your logo etc. Use a follow me graphic that grabs their attention and it can also be customized.
Twitter Marketing Needs To Follow The Basic Premise Of Twitter…
Keep things casual, light, with a touch of humor. Heavy or too serious turns them off. The basic reason to follow is so that it is entertaining. In case you don’t know it, Twitter allows for multimedia additions. So, you can include video plugins on your page to post videos. You can subdivide you Twitter page to include members of your staff which makes it more interesting for people to follow the goings on of your business. And, you can also divide your followers into groups like customers, competitors, personal contacts etc. Don’t forget to get mobile. There are plenty of Twitter mobile apps available so
you can keep those busy on the go customers informed. Google Maps and other map websites now integrate with Twitter for you to get on the map. Contests are tons of fun on Twitter. Host an impromptu giveaway contest on Twitter. You can do this every day, every week, monthly, whatever you choose. A great way to keep your followers following. Ask for feedback which can help you deliver what people want. Use colors and fonts that fo along with your theme or template. These are important to the impression you make to your followers. Keep it in line with your business format. Make Twitter followers feel special by offering “Twitter followers only” specials and coupons. This encourages new purchases as well as new followers. But, be sure not to use Twitter only as a promotional site, add to the dialogue letting people know what else is happening aside from your promotions. What Your Twitter Marketing Should Not Do…
Never mention a resource without lining itif at all possible. Back up your tweets with links and your followers will place more trust in your opinions. And please, never use foul language even if it seems necessary. It’s a page one NO! NO! Don’t abbreviate too much, don’t be so vague they miss the point. Avoid arguments at all costs if possible. While some people are belligerent and obnoxious, if you interact with them, you can dig a hole and make yourself look bad. By all means, do not be boring!! What you had for breakfast is not that interesting. Keep you r post fresh, interesting, and fun. Don’t worry how many followers you have. It can distract from the quality of your content. Keep spammers and spam in any form out of your Twitter feed or it can ruin your Twitter page period. Do not stop abruptly.
