Building a successful brand on Twitter is not rocket science.
Twitter success takes persistence and patience.
By making time for Twitter you open your brand up to a world of possibilities and with the following 7 steps you can build your twitter brand in a very powerful way.
1. Make Tweeting a Daily Habit
Install a Twitter app into your phone, and sign up for a Hootsuite account. Try to respond to any @mentions you get as fast as possible. Engaging on Twitter is the key to success, and the more you put into Twitter the more you will get out.
2. Tweet Valuable Stuff
3. Don’t Spam
Noone likes spam. Spam people and they will unfollow you. Report spam to @spam, or by clicking the gear icon and then selecting “Report spam” in the web browser based version of Twitter.
4. Timing is Important
Timing on Twitter is vital to spreading your message far and wide. Twitter is far busier during the week than it is on the weekend. Peak traffic time on Twitter is typically between 3-5pm, and is busier as the week winds down, on Thursday and Friday especially. Use tweet scheduling tools like Hootsuite to ensure that your bestcontent goes out during these times.
5. Don’t Hide Behind a Logo
People connect with people, not logos. If you do not use a picture of yourself for your profile pic you are missing out on many people who would rather follow someone who is not hiding their face.
Just because your logo is not your profile pic does not mean you can’t custom brand your Twitter profile. Your background is customizable, and a great place for company logo’s and information.
6. Reciprocity is Key
On Twitter it’s often true that you get what you give. Retweet others and the chances that they will follow and retweet you increase exponentially.
Suggest others for #FollowFriday and you will often find that they will to do the same for you.
7. Link it up
Throw down links to your Twitter profile wherever possible, and more people will follow you. Use links in your tweets and more people will retweet you.
