Twitter best practices

Twitter best practices | Digital Brand Marketing | Scoop.it

Although it is possible to have a short-term business success on Twitter, it is not probable without months — or even years — of work first. Behind every case study there are three factors at work and these stepping stones are climbed only through a lot of preparation and effort.


Before we get into the details, I want to emphasize that there are many business benefits to Twitter that DON’T require a lot of preparation, You can use it for market research, education, and customer service, for example, without the steps I am about to explain. But if you want to generate leads and SELL something some day, pay attention to the advice below....

Want to increase engagement on Twitter?


It’s a great question, because Twitter can sometimes feel like a tough nut to crack.


The answer is in Belle Beth Cooper’s article. She has spent quite some time observing Joel Gascoigne, the CEO of scheduling app Buffer, in action.


In this case study, she reveals the types of Tweets that Gascoigne posts, how he formats and optimizes them, and what he does to find the content he shares.


“His Tweets regularly even outperform the ones posted on the @buffer Twitter account, which, at around 162,000 have roughly 6-7 times the following of Joel’s at 25,000 followers.”


A must-read!

Infographic: Watch Tweets Appear Worldwide in Real-Time | Digital Brand Marketing | Scoop.it

By Franck Ernewein, Tweetping is a map that shows where everyone in the whole world is tweeting from in real time.


Much like Poptip’s treatment of Twitter, you’re not really meant to follow it all. Country-by-country tickers do track the total tweets, words, and characters sent since you signed on, but hashtags and @-mentions flash for milliseconds, constantly replaced by a stream of data that can’t be paused for a moment, lest the system fall perpetually behind. Meanwhile, the geolocations of each tweet make their way to a world map as a glowing dot. As the tweets pile up, so do the dots, meaning the world transforms from prehistoric shadows to blindingly bright connectivity in a matter of minutes.
