The Tao of Twitter-A Must Read
How To Write Your Effective Tweet
There are several different ways that you can learn how to write an effective tweet for your business. The key is knowing how Twitter operates. To be honest, many people fail to promote their business because they don't know how to write effective tweets. Twitter is a fast paced social media platform. Twitter is much different from other social media platforms. At Twitter, you only have a few seconds to catch someone's eyes. If you don't, your potential sale is long gone.
How can you catch someone's attention within seconds? Since you only have a few seconds to catch someone's eyes, you have to make sure your tweets are effective. You need to get straight to the point. I see many people posting their link first and writing their promotion afterward. This is not effective tweets. Nobody is going to click on your tweets if you post them in this manner. Personally, I've always had success when my link is in the middle. This is a effective way to write your tweets. For example, if I am trying to promote my SEO business, I would send my tweet like this.
- Do you need professional SEO? (LINK) Get SEO help now!
This is an effective tweet to promote your business. Notice, the first thing people see is "Do you need." The read automatically knows that this is a promotion. They want to know what for, so their eyes are directed to the rest of the tweet. As they are going through the tweet, in the end, they see "Get SEO help now." Within seconds, the reader knows it is a promotion and they know exactly what for. This is one way to use effective tweets to promote your business.
Another effective way to promote your business using twitter is with interaction. The key to this is grabbing the reader's attention. What does your business promote? For example, we will say your business promotes motorcycles. Remember, this is just for examples. My object is to interact with my audience, as well as promote my business. This is effective tweeting because others can share and re-tweet your tweet. If this happens, your tweet could be seen by a lot of people. Engage your audience and keep them interested. My purpose is to get my audience interacting with my tweet. Since I sale motorcycles, I am going to send a tweet similar to the one below.
- Have you seen the new Harley Davidson? (LINK) Wow, check out this bike!
Since you are asking a question, you are engaging your audience. You are basically asking them to respond. This is also a great way to pick up leads. The point, you want to send effective tweets to promote your business. If your sending tweets out by the hundreds, but your not writing them right, they won't be seen. You can send a million, it won't matter. Sending effective tweets is the only way to successfully promote your business.
Promoting Within The Same Niche
Another way that you can effectively promote on Twitter is by joining people that are in the same niche. This can create leads, sales, and important contacts that you may need down the road. There are many benefits to gaining followers in the same niche. For one, they have and share similar interest as you. They may even be a buyer, looking for similar products that you may have. If your promoting a service, they may be interested in your service or know someone that is.
For example, if you are promoting music, you would want to follow musicians. I'm not talking about celebrities, I'm referring to men and women that are associated to the music market. You may want to look for music business owners, CEO's, or affiliates. Since your niche is music, it only makes sense to promote to people in the same niche. It wouldn't do you any good to promote your music to football fans or car dealers.
Twitter is one of the largest social media websites and it is still growing. There is a huge market within and there is plenty to go around. Once you know how to properly construct your tweets, you are going to get more hits. It is up to you to close out the sales though. So, if your going to promote your business on Twitter, make sure you know how to close your sales and leads.
