How To Capture Their Attention & Engage Your Leads

Twitter Customer Business Engagement

Engagement is defined as the people that are directly interacting with the content that you are creating. They can engage by recommending your product, commenting, clicking your link, or sharing. Sharing is the most powerful way for your content to get to a massive audience.

It is great to engage with other brands, products, services as well. When you share, like, and comment on their content it grabs their attention right away and they are more likely to take note of your posts.

The reason retweeting others content is so powerful is because Twitter works on a reciprocal model in where sharing others content those brands and people are much more likely to engage with you.

When putting out your content, studies have shown that short 80-110 word tweets are the most effective. Sharing a large variety of links to your best content is also very important. Make sure that you are sharing others content. If it’s all about you and your brand awareness it won’t work well.

You want to be sure you are not tweeting too much as that can be annoying to your followers. I know that it’s important to space out your tweets. I always provide valuable content that is highly targeted to my particular customer.

How To Turn Twitter Business Leads On Autopilot

According to Hubspot the most effective posting time is fromĀ 12:00 to 3:00 PMĀ on weekdays. Another noteworthy time is 5:00 PM with the highest retweets and posting between 12:00 PM-6:00 PM showed the highest click through rate.

With those times being mentioned it is best to have posting management tools such as Socialoomph, Agora Pulse, and Sendible. These programs all have free trials ranging from 7 days to 30 days. These programs let you schedule tweets at exact times, with your chosen content, and track your tweets. You’ll know exactly how effective your tweets are be able to see if adjustments are needed.

I want to review how you are able to place your campaign on autopilot. Create great relevant content for your business or niche. Post that content with no more than two hashtags. Hashtags are key terms that relate to the content such as #photooftheday, #fashion, #beautiful. More than two hashtags takes away from the content. Use a posting management and analytics tool to make your campaign organized, efficient, trackable, and with consistent content. Be aware of the best posting times that were learned from extensive research.

    After reading this I’ve been taking Twitter way too lightly. I hear about everyone tweeting all the time and haven’t thought that much about actually getting into Twitter myself.
    But as your stats point out, Twitter is huge and extremely beneficial for business.
    There’s some awesome information here about Twitter that I never knew and I slacked off when it came to Twitter, but not anymore. It’s great to know when the best times are for tweeting and how many words you should use! Thank you!

    Wow, as a relatively new Affiliate Marketer I found this article very helpful. I haven’t really considered the benefits of pursuing Twitter leads for my business, mostly because I am not much of a Twitter user in my personal life. I think it will be a really nice compliment to my more in depth blog posts on the my site and help me create more consistently posted content. Many thanks for a great article!
