In our previous article on 10 Super Easy Tricks for a Successful Marketing in Social Media, we showed you 10 simple ways you can boost your sales through Facebook and five simple things you can do on Twitter! Now, we’re continuing the second half of our social networking marketing strategy on Twitter and Pinterest!
Don’t forget to interact with followers
Your followers are the driving force of your Twitter. With more followers, you get more chances of showing off your business, your website, and the products and services you’re selling. But to have more followers, you need to be very active on Twitter as well.
Link to your site appropriately not obsessively
One of the problems that make your followers unfollow you on Twitter is your obsessive need to plug your business or your website. It is a big NO-NO. Always posting about your business will make your tweets seem spammy and everyone hates that. No one likes ad-like tweets or posts popping up in their social feeds.
You can link your website from time to time but never every time. It’s always best to tweet about relevant information that is related to your niche. Reposting funny images or jokes also related to your niche is an excellent way to attract followers. The increase in sales will come later on.
Leech on your niche influencer
The great thing about Twitter is that you can follow anyone without them following you back. You can also mention anyone at any time. You should follow influencers in your niche, and if you have relevant information you’d like to share on the same niche, you should mention influencers in your niche. Their followers will be able to see what helpful tip you can offer and will soon look you up.
Build an amazing Twitter experience
A Twitter experience will give you a significant increase in your social following and indirectly towards selling your products and services. Here are some cool ways you can improve the Twitter experience.
Make your tweets all original
Don’t easily retweet (in fact, barely retweet at all). You should only retweet those that are selectively amazing tweets.
Always respond to mentions and comments on your tweets
Speak the lingo, don’t be sooo stiff when you’re tweeting. That would be a major turn off.
Get your people to tweet!
Like Facebook, if you have a brick and mortar business, you should also make the most of your employee’s Twitter accounts. This will help you maximize your social network marketing strategy by getting your employees to be active in engaging on your business Twitter account.
