Top Six Business Tips to Tweet Effectively

Tweeting effectively is about building relationships, engaging with your followers, and being genuinely approachable. If you provide interesting and consistent tweets that offer help and/or advice, you will continue to have a flow of followers.

Check out the following Top Six Business Tips To Tweet Effectively:

1. Engage with your followers

Reply and re-tweet the posts of your followers. You might find that someones tweet may benefit your own followers. Search for opportunities where YOU will be able to offer advice and/or help. Engage on what others are tweeting about and create an ongoing relationship. Don't just tweet for the sake of tweeting. Make your tweets irresistible!

2. Use Hashtags

Every twitter conversation has a topic with a hashtag(#) and a time. If you're promoting an event, make sure and use a hasgtag(#) to promote it. Sign up with tweetchats.com and allow people to converse with you in real time.

3. Use Twitter Search

Use Twitter search and see what people are talking about in real time by using targeted keywords and/or phrases. Check out Google Trends and also hashtags.org to see what topics are currently trending.

4. Make you own tweets effective

Your tweets should consist of effective quality content. Tweet about links that will be beneficial to your followers. Tweet about your new products, services, events, breaking news, status updates, contests, discounts to attract your current followers and new customers.

5. Use schedulers to update your status automatically


If you own a small business, it is important to use a tool that manages your social media communications. HootSuite.com and CoTweet.com allow you to manage and monitor your social networks. Schedule your tweets from 9a.m., 11 a.m., noon, 3 p.m., and 6 p.m. eastern standard time (est.)

6. Analyze Your Social Media Network

Remember and always analyze your social media network efforts to measure your overall effectiveness. Identify what does and does not work for your business. Klout.com is a great tool for this!
