Twitter, the micro blogging site has transformed into a first-hand news source and people do read a lot that gets posted on Twitter, hence, it is a crafty idea to use your twitter account to promote your business. Many are already doing it already and are benefiting too. So why haven’t you started yet? Here’s how to generate sales from Twitter!
- Build Your own Community on Twitter
Doing this is simple and it will ensure that you are being heard. So when you post something on Twitter and there are people who are reading your tweets, offer them incentives in the form of coupons or freebies so that they take a chance with your business.
- Discuss with your Audience and Retweet Relevant Stuff
In case you have tweeted something that has been retweeted by someone else, you must follow it and ask the person his/her views on your tweet. This will benefit you in two ways. Your audience will know that it is not a one way highway and second, you will get to know, what exactly the expectation of the person who retweeted is. Two birds with one shot.
- Make your Posts Retweetable
This is an important step as this will help to promoteyour brand to a great extent. People who like your tweets are sure to retweet and thus, your tweets must be concise so that the person who retweets is able to add his views to your post and retweet.
- Hashtags are the Way to Go
A hashtag is highly beneficial as it enables you to invite followers to a specific place. Using a hash tag that is related to your business and then tweeting will lead your followers to the address of the hashtag and all the information related to it will also be displayed.
- Conduct a Chat on Twitter
A twitter chat is something that can be a blessing in disguise, provided that you conduct it in the right manner. You can get people have a discussion on something that is related to your business and this will help you know about the areas that need improvement. Doing this is easy, all you need to do is, include a hashtag with your tweet and keep a specific time when you would start the discussion. Simple, isn’t it?
