Twitter has a whopping PR 10. Which means that there are more than tens of millions of visitors that sign in, post a tweet (that is 140 characters or less), post a picture or video, share a link, or just plain say Hi to their followers. It’s so easy and can be accessed conveniently onto today’s smartphones and other handheld devices that have access to the Internet.
If you’re on Twitter, then you may have already known the endless possibilities that you can gain from the social media site. If you’re a marketer, it’s an absolutely glorious place to promote your products and/or services. Or it may just be a place where you can have any persona that you want. It can even get you Internet famous if you work hard enough.
Now assuming that you have a good number of followers, here are 9 Twitter techniques that will get you Internet famous in no time (or if you’re a marketer, then you can get good results from your b2b lead generation campaign).
Think before you tweet
It’s so easy to post random stuff in Twitter. But think about it, will this get the attention of other users in Twitter? If you want to get noticed then make sure that you tweet something other than “I saw a bird.”
Share great and compelling content
Now if you’re a blogger or one who does content marketing then Twitter is a great place to share your write-ups. Just put the appropriate hashtag on your post, insert the link of your post, and watch visitors to your blog to skyrocket!
Engage with other Twitter-ers
It’s meaningless if you just tweet, and tweet, and tweet, and tweet, AND tweet without talking to other people within the site (let alone your followers). Spend a few minutes within the day to engage with other Twitter people. You can even gain more followers by doing this.
Find your group
Twitter has a search bar at the top of the page. Use it.
You can search for a specific topic or a tag where people engage in. Talk and interact with them to gain more followers. For instance, if you’re looking for energy sales leads then just search for the appropriate tag in the search bar to look for people interested in getting energy procurement or consultation services.
Be Good. Always.
Nobody likes a douche, a prick, a liar, and the list goes on and on. People that tweet about mean stuff usually have the lowest amount of followers for they use Twitter as an outlet for their rage and whatnot (which is actually quite annoying to read all the time, mind you).
Mix up your tweets
People will get bored seeing the same tweets over and over again. Be flexible. Mix up your tweets with something different from time to time. Posting text tweets all the time? Post a picture! Posting links all the time? Post a conversation with your followers. The possibilities are endless here.
Set up lists
If you have hundreds or even thousands of followers, or have been following a lot of people as of late, then you’ll notice your dashboard to be quite cluttered. Create lists in order to organize them into small groups so that you can see which group of people have the same interests. This will allow you to get into a better conversation with them.
Know which hashtag to use
Hashtags are a great tool to get your tweet noticed by the same people using the same tag. However, they kind of look a bit spammy inside your tweet. Hence you should know which hashtags to use and use them sparingly. It is advisable to use 1 or, at most, 2 tags within a post.
Follow people that converse a lot
When you follow other people that engage a lot with their followers, other people will get to see your conversation. Ergo, they can join in as well. This can make your follower-base skyrocket even further.
Take note of these top tips and you (and your site) will be Internet famous in no time.
