Setting up Profile

Setting up a profile is the first step for any social marketing technique. When someone lands
on your profile, they will decide to follow you or not by taking look at your profile. So
having an impressive profile is a must.

1 Creating Your Brand Profile

We have create our profile in a way that if someone looks at our profile they will automatically
know that it’s our profile. Meaning you have customize profile with a unique brand logo, name,
color and any other details which will be your brand image.

1 Handle – Your Twitter handle is a username that is unique to you for ex- Uber companie’s
handle is @Uber. This should include your brand name and must be short so users can
easily remember. If the Handle is short user can easily find your profile.

2 Header – The header is background image of your profile. It must be a unique image that might
include your logo or work of action. Custom Illustrations can be a great example of brand
image. Take the example of Uber. And size should 1500x500px. If you don’t know photo
editing use Canva. They have free ready-made templates that can be pretty handy.

3 Profile picture – A profile picture is the face of your brand. It’s the first seen thing whenever
someone hovers over your profile. It must include your logo or company’s initial.

4 Twitter Bio – Twitter bio provides brief information about your brand in 160 characters or less.
It can be about your companies next mission or what your company does or anything
engaging.

5 Website URL – Beneath your profile picture and bio, you can include your URL to direct traffic
straight to your website.

6 Birthday – Next to the website URL you can add birthday, which can be your company’s founding
date to engage users on a personal level.

2 Creating Twitter List

Twitter list is nothing but an organized group of Twitter accounts in a specific category. For
ex if you are interested in specific niche related groups on Twitter, so instead of opening
everytime their profile to check tweets, you can simply add those groups in your list where
only those account’s tweets will be available.

List is great to follow specific kinds of accounts. You can section your lists into groups such
as business inspiration, competitors, and target audience so you’re able to easily review their
posts, interactions, and content.

3 Use Image and videos

Instead of Just tweets try to put images in your tweets. It is proved that simple tweets are
outperformed by the tweets with images. Images with high quality and contain eye catching
elements always stops user’s hovering on Twitter. Illustrations are best example, you can create
illustrations in Canva for free

While telling a story or brand advertisements or use of the product or anything which can be use as
short videos and gifs try to post it in form of short videos. As it is always, images are outperformed
by videos.

Remember, try to tweets 5 times a days which can be short videos or images but don’t
just post images only try to post 3-4 videos daily

4 Content Calander

Creating and planning of content can take extra effort but it saves lot of effort and stress afterword.
Trust me by scheduling posts earlier is better than thinking about what to post at the end of moment
like any special day which can beneficial for business.

While Creating calendar consider these things

  • Pick two holidays such as Saturday Sunday to create all post
  • Create post for next on week or atlest for Four days
  • How often you want to post
  • Best time to post – See which time user interacting with your post so much

If you are sharing mix  if you’re sharing a balanced mix of tweets. Then post in this form for ex
⅓ of tweets promote your business, ⅓ share personal stories, and ⅓ are informative insights from
experts or influencers.

5 Assign Role

If you are starting new business, you’ll probably do not need a team or a member that can work aside with you but when your business grows you’ll probably need a team or member who can reply and Tweet on your behalf.

So you can give them a designated role according to their qualifications.

  1. Administrator – Administrator is like a another owner who has all access of account. There can be more than one owner.
  2. Contributor – Contributor’s role include uploading, tweeting and editing media. Contributor cannot change account setting or assign role.
  3. Publisher – Publisher only have access to use media from library for their own personal account.
  4. Uploader – They can only upload content and create video through LiveCut. They cannot Tweet or perform any other action.
  5. Analyst – As name suggests they only have roll of Analyse. They also have view-only access to the Library .
Follow these steps to give access
  1. Click Your Account in the navigation bar.
  2. Select the account you’d like to share access to and click the Manage team button.
  3. Type the name or @username of the person you’d like to invite in the Add a team member field.
  4. Click Authorize. Once you have authorized someone, they’ll receive an email, an invitation in the Accounts panel of their TweetDeck, and a push notification.
  5. The new team member will need to accept the invitation to begin using the shared account.

6 Set Measurable Goals

Without any goal, you can’t hope to reach what you want. Same with Twitter marketing, you need to
create goals to keep on track. There is no way to know if your strategy having a positive impact unless
you know what you are trying to achieve. The goal can include –

  • Getting X amount of followers in specific time
  • Generating leads to an offer
  • Increasing website traffic or Email list
  • And much more

and what’s not working.

and gifs but also communicating with audience on personal level help to increase your fan base

topics, ask the audience for their opinions and future topics.

and comments regarding your topic of choice by searching your unique hashtag, as well as sharing
their own comments and thoughts by adding the hashtag to their tweets.

Twitter chatting promote engagement with you and your audience and people get know
about your business more because it connects your brand and your audience on personal
level.

Even if Twitter doesn’t have special features like Instagram or Facebook for engagement
we still have to manage what we have.

There is one more feature we can use is Twitter Poll. The Twitter poll allows you to post a
question and all up to four options. Polls are a great way to engage with an audience since they
are one click and fun, this is the thing people love to react to. especially they want to see
what others are reacting on poll.

3 Engage with the audience personally

As we know Twitter is known as a chatty platform. Even if you are posting images and videos that you should but one important thing is an appealing voice.

Your tweets must have a consistent tone if doesn’t matter that your team member is tweeting. You should consider these things for the best response.

Don’t be a Robo Don’t tweet that sound like it come from a robot or is scripted, no one’s gonna like it. People engage with the Tweets that come from a real person. Don’t answer like explaining Rocket science, Keep language plain and simple and don’t forget to add emojis 

Show your personality – Your brand’s voice should be consistent through all social media platform, so try to show them. If you are funny, convey it through your tweets.

Don’t repeat – Don’t tweet same post over and over again. Audience should end up losing interest in your content if you Tweets are identical. Try to put some unique content in every single post.

Be honest – Show your honesty to build trust with your audience. For ex if you are promoting a product show it’s  cons too. People like honesty.

Tip – If you are promoting dropshipping products, don’t be too honest and say that buy my dropship product, they will end buying from AliExpress.
