What Makes Twitter So Important?
Twitter has become one of the most important marketing tools for successful businesses, and tens of millions of people worldwide are using the popular social network site every day. However, there are still people who consider Twitter to be full of pointless updates and complaining customers. While you are going to find some of this, the benefits of Twitter far outweigh the negatives.
Here are some reasons why you need to Tweet for your business:
Creating personal connections with customers. It can be hard to find an easy outlet to reach out to your customers, but if you get them to follow you on Twitter you can create ongoing dialogues with them. This makes it an extremely effective way to learn what you’re doing right and what you’re doing wrong.
Interact with the press. If you have special announcements you want to make, Twitter is a great way to get them out to the press. You can also speak to bloggers, reporters or other media members directly through your business’s Twitter account. If enough members of the press follow you, they could wind up retweeting articles, blogs, or other tweets that you post, earning you a larger online following.
Track internet trends. The trending topics on Twitter, both worldwide and local, will give you a great insight into what is popular in the world right now. You’ll find brand new memes you can use in your marketing, or keep up to date with the most current pop culture trends that might influence your advertising. You’ll even witness breaking news as it happens.
Build relationships. You have the chance to tweet back and forth with CEOs of other companies, athletes, musicians, and more. If you succeed in building a relationship with an influential tweeter, it could wind up being quite beneficial for your business.
Track your competitors. Not only does Twitter give you a great way to track the success of your own business, but you can also follow your competitors to see what is or isn’t working for them. Your competitors’ lists of followers also give you a great starting point to find new potential customers.
