10 Types of “Tweets” That Encourage REAL Connection

10 Types of “Tweets” That Encourage REAL Connection | Social on the GO!!! | Scoop.it

 Great post by Kim Garst, Twitter can be a very powerful tool to build your business if you use it wisely.

 

Intro:

 

The purpose of Twitter and all social media, is not to make money, but to brand YOU and your business and build relationships with potential and existing customers. The money will follow if you put your customers FIRST.

 

**Mix your "business" talk with "life" talk

 

Excerpt::

 

"Twitter challenges personal brands to reach out to their audience differently than they would in traditional marketing and/or social media platforms."

 

Here are some highlights that caught my attention:

 

**The resource sharing tweet - Find a great article or a resource that you know your target audience could benefit from

 

**The quotable tweet - This one speaks for itself

 

**Tip of the Day Tweet - great way to provide relevant content to your target audience by providing them a valuable piece of info that they can use either personally or profesionally. This also builds vlaue for you as an expert within your niche.

Are Brands Wielding More Influence In Social Media Than We Thought?

Are Brands Wielding More Influence In Social Media Than We Thought? | Social on the GO!!! | Scoop.it

I selected this piece by Steve Olenski  for Forbes because it's good for B2C marketers to see the results of their social media campaigns.

 

This article is specifically aimed at B2C marketers where their consumers want instant gratification - promotions, giveaways, etc. Having said that, part of the purchasing cycle can include content in some cases depending on what you're selling and who your audience is.

 

Here are findings of a survey recently conducted by Market Force - a worldwide leader in customer intelligence solutions.

 

12,000 consumers in the US and UK were asked how they engaged with varying industries via social media: Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and Google+

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

**81% of US respondents indicated posts from their friends directly influenced their purchase decision

 

**80% of respondents “tried new things based on friends’ suggestions.”

 

**78% of respondents said the posts by companies they follow on social media impact their purchases.

 

**consumers are not all that interested in content but rather want something i.e. a promotion, giveaway, etc. when it comes to social media and their favorite brands.

 

Are Brands finally "getting it" when it comes to social media?

 

**They are getting more and more cognizant of the fact that what they post, share and so on can and will impact what the end user does – in this case, make a purchase decision.

 

**out of the 12,000 who participated 75% were women. This is incredibly significant given the fact that women account for 85% of all consumer purchases
