A lot of entrepreneurs now know that Twitter is a great top social media tool for your Berkshire business. Even though only 140 characters are allowed on a single status update, people will always find ways to shorten their posts. Actually, it is also the 140-character limit that many individuals like–it means they don’t need to write a lot just to update their profiles.
Just like with any other social media sites, Twitter also has private messaging and photo uploading features. These can be used well for business.
Many have already tried and failed at Twitter. They have spent a lot of time tweeting, and some have gained business, while for others, it just didn’t work. However, there are many entrepreneurs who don’t know how to maximise the use of Twitter to gain business.
Twitter as a top social media tool for your Berkshire Business?
Basically, Twitter is a very useful social tool. People from all around the world converge and chat on this micro blogging site. Because of this fact, for businesses, it has become a tool that could easily engage followers and customers.
When your clients ask you a question, you can respond in real time. Just make sure to respond in a timely and professional manner.
Promoting on Twitter
As with any other social media site, you can easily update your status. With Twitter, because of the 140 character limit, updating shouldn’t be that difficult.
You can also post photos of yourself, your office and events. Remember as well that your followers would be able to respond better to real photos and not stock photos. They also want to see a real face behind the brand.
What’s more, it’s important to avoid constantly selling or marketing on your Twitter page. You get followers because these people are mostly interested in quality information about your brand or any knowledge that you can share.
Sure, they would still like to know more about your products that would make them lose weight within 7 days or gain 6 pack abs or win a new iPhone; but if you keep doing this, of course it would get annoying for your followers.
Make sure that you balance your tweets between business, information and a little bit of entertainment. If you get new followers, you can follow back as well because your followers like the feeling of being followed back.
If you want to know more about marketing, The Prudent Marketer has an upcoming seminar on marketing and business growth. It will be held in Berkshire on the 19th November at 10:00 AM.
