Have you thought about how getting back to basics can lend a new perspective?
Even Twitter’s most advanced users may be missing out on engagement opportunities if they aren’t bothering to optimize Twitter’s basic features.
In this article I’ll show you easy Twitter marketing ideas you can put to use right away.
Are you getting enough engagement on Twitter?
Twitter’s true value is in its engagement. Unless people are engaging with you on Twitter, you’re wasting your time.
In this article I’ll share 10 tweeting techniques that lead to better engagement.
#1: Keep Tweets Under 110 Characters
Twitter’s legendary character restriction seems short, but if you’re maxing out your character count, your tweets are too long.
Shorter tweets with around 110 characters get 17% higher engagement, and there’s a reason for that. When you leave room in a tweet, it makes it easier for people to retweet you and add their own commentary.
Do you use Twitter to market your product or service?
Do you want to focus your marketing to reach specific Twitter users with Twitter ads?
Twitter tailored audiences let you target people based on previous engagement with your website or content.
In this article you’ll discover how tailored audiences can put your Twitter ads in front of people who’ve already shown an interest in your business.
Using Twitter Tailored Audiences
In order for your company to take full advantage of tailored audiences, you need an Ad Partner account and a Twitter Ads account.
Are you struggling to build an engaging Twitter community?
Do you want to lead relevant conversations, but aren’t sure where to begin?
Standard auto-tweets aren’t going to cut it. Your top priority should be creating helpful, authentic interactions.
In this article I’ll tell you six ways you can start Twitter conversations and keep your followers’ attention.
#1: Make Your Twitter Profile Inviting
When someone is looking for you or your brand on Twitter, the first thing they’ll do is search for you, and then they’ll check out your profile. If you want more followers, this is their first stop, so make it pop!

Do you want a better way to find quality prospects and increase your Twitter ROI?
Twitter is a key social media tool that gives you access to a targeted audience and relevant conversations, but first you have to cut through the noise.
In this article I’ll detail three steps for using Twitter hashtags to their full potential. Get ready to find useful conversations that connect you with ideal prospects.
Why Use Hashtags as a Prospecting Tool?
Twitter is noisy.
As a social media marketer, you know how important it is to have conversations with the right audience. But finding the right people and starting those meaningful conversations on Twitter is, shall we say, challenging when there are around 9,100 tweets sent every second.
So how can you find what you’re looking for without monitoring Twitter 24/7? Make the most of hashtags. They help you filter Twitter conversations so you can find discussions you can add to.
Do you wonder how Twitter can help your business?
By being an active part of the Twitter community and sharing the right mix of content, you can reach a larger audience, generate more leads and become the go-to source when customers are ready to buy.

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.
