How to Create A Solid Twitter Presence

How to Create A Solid Twitter Presence

You want people to visit your site to make a purchase, but it has probably been a bit difficult. This is why you need to do everything you can to integrate Twitter into your marketing plan. Having a few followers will do you no good since that means only a few people will have access to your content. This article will show you how to create a solid twitter presence.

Post photo of yourself

Post photos of yourself and some of the products you are offering. Many people will not follow anyone that does not have any photos. The idea is that anyone who is real will not hesitate to post some pictures.

Make sure that the photos you put are professional and they make you look positive. The last thing you want is to post something that will cause people to doubt your ability to successfully run a business.

Engage with your followers

When people try to engage you in conversation, allow that to happen. People that are not following you will be able to see this exchange and it will make them feel better about you.

Many business owners try to get customers without taking their feelings into account. They ignore messages and spend most of their time touting their products. If this is the way you present yourself on Twitter, you will have a very difficult time gaining a solid following.

Encourage people to follow you

Promote your Twitter on your website and encourage people to share the link. If you have a good product or service, people will not hesitate to share this information with their friends.

You should think about offering others the opportunity to get incentives in exchange for referring others. This is a great way to build your number of followers in record time.

By the way if you’re not following me on twitter it is time to do so, you can follow me here.

Take advantage of influencers

There are many people that are considered top users on Twitter. They have a ton of followers and many of them trust the information they pass on. These are the type of people you should try appealing to. If these users follow you, there is a good chance that others will follow suit.

The best way to engage these types of users is by approaching them with information you know will offer them something they need. It wouldn’t hurt for you to offer them some type of incentive.

Use a contest

People like to win free things on twitter, use this in your favor. Hold a contest that requires people to follow you in order to qualify. This may seem like it is a bit underhanded, but it isn’t if you are perfectly clear about this from the beginning.

Most people understand the idea that you cannot get something for anything, so they would have no problem following you in exchange for a chance to get a great prize.

Final words

Those are some actions you can take in order to create a strong twitter presence. All of the information above should have you well on your way to increase the number of followers on your Twitter account.

The more the merrier since this will increase your chances of making a profit. While it may take some hard work to create the type of fan base you would like, it will be worth it once you see the profits come in.
