What NOT To Do On Twitter and How To Best Avoid Wasting Valuable Time
I hoped you’d click through and see this and here you are. Twitter is an important part of my business and it has brought great exposure and clients my way. It isn’t for everyone though. How do i know? Once upon a time i ran a retail business and it didn’t work so well, despite having a 1000’s of followers. Facebook worked the best for that business. But Twitter has done an amazing job for me in helping other businesses and there is a reason for that.
So, what NOT to do on Twitter
STOP making your newsfeed all about you. It’s just boring and not what people want to read/see. Also stop trying to ‘sell’ to people all day long. Booooring! People want value, not pushy sales people.
What you want to be doing is sharing motivational quotes, valuable tips that relate to your niche. So if you’re in the coffee business, you might share a meme that say’s ‘Coffee makes you do silly things faster’ You want to make people smile, you want to evoke an emotion, so that they share that post, retweet it or comment. This goes for Facebook too.
Another tip, don’t open a twitter account and then follow everyone you see. Surely if you are a business you want to target people who might be interested at some point or another in what you sell? Are you getting my drift now? You need to have a strategy, not play the guessing the game. One way of doing that is by using the advanced search feature within Twitter.
I have come to love Twitter. Yes it is a noisy place, however once you know what you’re doing, you’ll find yourself building wonderful relationships.
