With Facebook getting more and more strict, social media sites such as Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, and Instagram have been picking up steady growth. Although Facebook still holds the top spot, there is a ton of traffic to be had using some of the other networks.
Here are 3 quick tips for getting better results using Twitter:
1. Use It
No, that’s not a joke..lot’s of people sign up for a twitter account but don’t use it on a regular enough basis to get any type of real results. They then assume it doesn’t work, and give it up all together. I have noticed the best results come from posting multiple times a day…between 6 and 8 tweets. This sounds like a lot, but you can use a service such as Hootsuite to schedule the tweets in advance to help manage your time.
Besides just posting, you need to engage with other people you follow. Take 5 or 10 minutes per day going through what others have tweeted and either re-tweet the post or add it as a favorite. People love seeing their stuff shared and will most likely return the favor.
3. Mix It Up
Don’t just hammer your followers with the same old pitchy stuff about your products or your business. Mix up your tweets by adding value, pictures, and cool content. Try using the 80/20 rule which is 80% content to 20% selling. The more your followers view you as a provider of value, the more likely they are to share your stuff..and the more receptive they will be when you do share a business or product link.
