How to Respond to People on Twitter: A Simple Guide for Businesses [Infographic]

How to Respond to People on Twitter: A Simple Guide for Businesses [Infographic] | e-commerce social media | Scoop.it
Thanks to Twitter, businesses are closer to consumers than ever before. Tweets haven't replaced phone calls and handwritten letters, but they've become a popular way for consumers to vocalize their questions, praise, or complaints -- all in plain view of anyone who can find the conversation online.

But customers don't just expect you to read their tweets about you -- they also expect you to reply. According to charts published on Search Engine Watch, 70% of surveyed Twitter users expect a response from brands they reach out to on Twitter. Of those users, 53% want that response in under an hour. 

It's important to have a solid strategy for responding to tweets so you can keep your customers happy and drive engagement on Twitter. Should you include a link in your response? How much punctuation (?, !) should you use? Are emoticons off the table?

To help inform your Twitter response strategy, LeadSift gathered data on answers to these questions and more, and culminated them into the visual below. Consider this data in the context of your own brand voice and what you know about your buyers' behavior to develop an action plan when responses come rolling in. And hurry -- your customers are waiting.

7 Sneaky Tricks For Measuring Your Twitter Marketing

7 Sneaky Tricks For Measuring Your Twitter Marketing | e-commerce social media | Scoop.it

Twitter is easily in my top three favorite social networks because it doesn’t restrict who you can and can’t connect with (unless they have a private profile) and you get rewarded for your hard work. Unlike Facebook, organic reach is very much alive on Twitter and I gain over 100 new followers a day without spending a single dollar.


Here’s the thing…it’s not all about followers, it’s about targeted followers. Are you attracting the right people or just random strangers that will never help further your business?


There are a few ways you can check your follower base to see if you’re on the right track using FollowerWonk. Some of these features will require a premium account depending on how many followers you have.


Whether or not you decide to pay for the full version, I think the free trial version is worth trying out at least once to gain some valuable insights that no other tool currently offers....

A Guide to Growing Your Twitter Audience

A Guide to Growing Your Twitter Audience | e-commerce social media | Scoop.it

...We love Twitter for rapid interaction, ease of use and because it’s an online gateway to hordes of potential followers (and website visitors). Followers mean popularity, which in turn means trust, which then in turn could lead to customers and brand recognition. There are numerous ways to tap into this glowing hub of activity, watch Eric Kuhn's video for some insider tips.


As Twitter is such a fast flowing social network, doing simple things can often bring you great results very quickly. For example, running a competition is going to get you noticed faster than following someone in the hope they will follow you back because a competition gives Twitter users something that they want. Twitter may be fast and furious but by investing a little effort, it will reward you, eventually. This article will explain some of the ways you can quickly gain those much sought after Twitter followers....

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!

...At the moment, the updated search bar is pretty basic. Twitter plan to continue upgrading as time goes on, and more and more advanced features will become available over time. Still, you're able to set a few parameters, such as the dates you search between and whose posts you're combing through. In other words, you can choose to search a certain person’s tweets between December and January of last year, and you can choose to only search for tweets which contain the hashtag #christmas.


This allows you to track people's changing opinions over time.For those who understand coding and binary and scary words, Twitter have explained their new search bar in impossible amounts of detail over at their official blog post. If you speak fluent binary, check it out. If you don't, all you need to take away from this article is that Twitter is now even more powerful than it was before.

Back in June,Re/Code spotted a “buy now” button that began appearing in tweets with links to retail siteFancy. The same publication previously got its hands on documents that appeared to show commerce plans, while Twitter has been rumored to be working on a deal with payments provider Stripe for some time.


At this point it isn’t entirely clear what Twitter has planned, but the “payment and shipping” option – which appears to be where users would manage their payment methods and enter their delivery address – clearly ties in with other clues....
