Do you want more people to see your updates?
If you’re a small business, it can take a while to build up your Twitter followers and that can be frustrating. You may wonder how other companies grow quickly and how you can replicate their success.
In this article you’ll discover five ways to jumpstart visibility for your Twitter profile and tweets.
#1: Follow Twitter Basics
Before you do anything else, be sure you understand a few Twitter fundamentals. You can increase your tweet exposure with just a few tweaks:
- Don’t start tweets with @username. Starting a tweet with @username restricts its visibility to only you, the person you’re tweeting and any mutual followers. Your reach is automatically cut short!
- Don’t use more than three hashtags in any one tweet. Too many hashtags in a tweet makes it look spammy and reduces your tweet’s shareability.
- Don’t over-tweet about yourself or your products. The 80/20 rule applies on all social platforms. The 80/20 rule means you spend 80% of the time interacting with and promoting others and 20% of the time promoting yourself and your products.
- Provide as much value as you can. Listen to your followers and the people you follow. What are their pain points? How can you solve those? When you share relevant, interesting tweets (without over-promoting), people see you as an expert and may recommend you to others as an important resource.

Building Connections With Twitter
Using Twitter to help your company grow isn’t about the number of followers you have.
It’s about building a community of followers who are passionate about your industry and who eventually become passionate about your brand.
The quickest and easiest way to develop a relevant Twitter community that grows your company is to find connectors and build relationships with them.
Connectors are called many things: thought leaders, industry experts, etc. They are the people who already have a thriving community and your customer’s ear.

Or have you let your Twitter marketing drop off lately?
In any case, with the latest Twitter updates, trends in multi-screen usage and real-time marketing, you’ll likely want to take a fresh look at what Twitter has to offer.
Here’s a checklist of everything your business needs to do to get on (or back on) Twitter and start seeing great results.
Twitter is a short message communication tool that allows you to send out messages (tweets) up to 140 characters long to people who subscribe to you (followers).
Your tweets can include a link to any web content (blog post, website page, PDF document, etc.) or a photograph or video. If a picture is worth a thousand words, adding an image to a tweet greatly expands what you can share to beyond the 140-character limit for tweets.
