If you plan on marketing your business on social media, Twitter is one of the top social platforms that you should consider using. However, don’t go into using Twitter thinking that all you have to do is throw out a few tweets every day. In order to get the most out of Twitter, you need to create a marketing plan.

The following are some of the things that you should consider when putting your plan together:

  • Decide on an objective – How do you know if your Twitter marketing is effective if you have no objective to measure it against? Decide what your objective is going to be, like creating brand loyalty or brand awareness.  
  • Choose relevant topics – Don’t tweet topics that have nothing to do with your brand. Make sure that the topic you choose will be meaningful to your followers.  
  • Use compelling hashtags – Hashtags are important because they help get your tweets found, so be sure to pick one that is catchy, relevant and short. Look at the hashtags that your competitors are using in order to get some ideas for what types of hashtags to use on your tweets.  
  • Partner up – Look for the influencers in your industry and partner up with them. You can benefit from attracting their Twitter users and vice versa. Be sure to retweet their tweets and have them do the same to get the maximum amount of exposure.  
  • Provide incentives – Get your followers to engage or to contribute by providing incentives such as contests or giveaways.

These are just a few tips that you should keep in mind when planning a Twitter campaign for your business. For additional advice on marketing your business on social media, be sure to contact us online at MediaFirst today.
