Twitter Mistakes Businesses Should Avoid

Posted by on Mar 16, 2010 in Twitter | 0 comments

This post is for all the businesses that are jumping on the Social Media bandwagon. You’ve been told to leverage the power of Social Media Networks like Twitter, however, mistakes can be made and it is my objective to give you a brief outline of Twitter mistakes businesses should be avoiding. Don’t become a Tweeting White Elephant About 28 percent of all Twitter accounts lie dormant after the user has set up their account. Don’t send the wrong messages to your followers or those that come across you by not Tweeting regularly. Don’t Follow Anyone If you’re following anyone on Twitter and they’re not following you back then there’s a problem. Start by unfollowing all the randoms and search for a select few Twitter accounts that are associated with your line of work and start to follow them. As a general rule never let your following counts exceed 10 percent higher than your followers count. Are you Tweeting too much? If you’re trying to dominate the Home Page feed by Tweeting every minute of the day then you’ll annoy your followers very quickly. Concentrate on only Tweeting useful stuff 2-3 times a day. If your Tweets are being Retweeted by others then you’ll know you on the right track. Don’t be Selfish A large amount of self-promotional Tweets will have you skating on thin ice with your followers. Instead of concentrating on yourself and what your business is doing, try to become a thought leader in your industry by Tweeting content that adds value and is relevant to everyone. Engage in Conversation Get to know your followers by engaging in conversation with them. You can do this by answering and asking questions. Look at @Travelstart if you want an example of a company that is doing things the right way on Twitter. They’re an online travel agency based in Cape Town and sell cheap flights online in South Africa. Don’t be Afraid of Mixing Business with Pleasure Even businesses need to show a more human side. A mix of non-commercial human Tweeting is fine. Comments about the weather etc. are fine. Stay away from profanity, personal attacks on other companies, politics, and religion. Avoid making Twitter Business Mistakes. Read about who should manage your Social...

Using Twitter to Generate Leads and Get Business

Posted by on Feb 26, 2010 in Twitter | 0 comments

Social Media Marketing is in the process of turning into a mainstream advertising medium because it provides the perfect platform to find the people looking for your products and services right now. Gone are the days of relying solely on methods like cold-calling to find your prospective customers, they’re now waiting to be found on Social Media. Twitter is a social networking site at the forefront of this phenomenon. Get on Twitter now so your business doesn’t miss out on the action. And if you’re already on Twitter then you should be ready and willing to respond to the wants and need of people out there with your products, services and solutions. However, many people don’t know how to turn a random Tweet into a lead. The few pointers I’ve outlined below should help you generate leads on Twitter. Target your area with Twitter Geotargeting Use Twitter Search to find Tweets in your region Use a Twitter Client like TweetDeck or Seesmic to receive real time results so you can reply on time TwitHawk is a tool that fins tweets for you. This tool uses custom search queries to target potential clients and sends you an email notification when it finds a match. It’s perfect for those of you who just don’t have time for Twitter. Participate in Conversation Always respond to Tweets directed at your organisation and try to respond to Tweets that are about your industry. Tweeps (Twitter users) will feel special if they find a deal through Twitter. For example, if you run a pizza joint and you come across someone Tweeting about pizza, then you can respond with a Tweet like “@pizzalover Come in and get a pizza from me and I’ll give you a free Coke with it.” Using TwitHawk you can setup a list of auto-responders that can rotate in reply to Tweets. Make sure you keep an eye on the results so you can reply personally when necessary. Do Something Different Turn your virtual followers into walk-in customers by offering something different on Twitter. A good idea is to distribute discount codes that are for exclusive use for those following you on Twitter. Run a Competition Offer a prize that make your followers Retweet your message. Competitions run on Twitter are attractive to Tweeps because they’re easy to enter and free. Twitter Marketing Works Twitter marketing works and if you spend enough time with it you’re bound to reach a level that few businesses achieve without spending huge amounts on traditional media. Become a thought leader in your industry on Twitter and people will follow you. They’ll be influenced by your knowledge and honesty and will start buying from you because they...
