Do you use Twitter within your marketing?
Do you know all the possible ways to Tweet?
With the rise of so many different social media platforms, Twitter is still a big part of people’s marketing plans.
Twitter is a great way to build an audience, share fantastic content and raise the awareness of your brand. With lots of different ways you can market yourself, what different ways can you Tweet?
Within this blog post you will discover over 7 different formulas to Tweet. From tweeting with an image, text only, all the way through to retweets, this is a blog post full of business Twitter ideas.
Tweet With An Image
One of my favourite ways to Tweet (which I probably use 90% of the time), is with an image.
They say humans respond faster to images than we do to text, which is why a lot of Twitter marketers use this within their own marketing.
Use Buffer’s social media image size guide to help you use the correct image size dimensions for each platform. I use it on a weekly basis, I can’t recommend it more!
Tweet Without An Image
Much like Tweeting with an image, this is probably the easiest Twitter tactic out of these business twitter ideas, as it’s just a plain and simple Tweet.
Use the power of words to encourage and attract more shares of your Tweets. Quotes, Tweets without a link and more personal statuses are great for this.
Tweet Without A Link
Using a tweet with an image or without, use this technique to be seen as less ‘salesy’, and offer your audience the inside scoop.
I’ve found this tactic to be very beneficial to my account, as you’re not encouraging your audience to click on a link.
This is seen as personal to your audience as you’re not selling down their throats, which I highly recommend.
Retweet A Tweet
A way to share great content to your audience, but to also get on the radar of influencers is with retweets.
This tactic has been a part of Twitter for many years, and is great tactic to combine with other business Twitter ideas.
If you struggle to find content to retweet, create a Twitter list with all of your favourite content providers. Every time you access your list, only these users Tweets will appear.
Tweet With And Without Hashtags
Hashtags were essentially born and bred on the land of Twitter, and is a great way to broaden your exposure on the platform.
If you include a hashtag within your Tweets, and someone searches for that hashtag, your Tweet will appear.
You can use as many as you wish per Tweet, but I recommend you use a maximum of 2-3. Combine this with Tweets without hashtags for great effect.
Warning – don’t go too overbroad with hashtags as they can be seen as spammy and will detract users to follow you.
Much like retweeting a user, a Quote Retweet allows you to offer your personal opinion on a certain Tweet.
If you click on the Retweet button, you can then click on Quote Retweet.
This is a great way to be seen as personal, while sharing great content to your audience at the same time.
An interesting way to Tweet that is relatively new to the world of Twitter, is Twitter cards.
Something that I don’t use too much with my accounts, this is a great way to promote extra information to your users.
