Can sales really be improved with the proper use of Twitter? In short, yes it can and this can be achieved through the best use of techniques that will really help a business, whether it is a start-up business, sole trader, or globally renowned business giants.
First things first, creating a connection for the business in its specific marketplace. This can be done through understanding other companies in the same market. Identify what their unique selling points are that make them successful and change it so it relates to your specific business. This can really help to establish your business as a competitor in your market.
The next step is to develop a decent contacts list. Keep a close connection to all the major players of every organisation that links to yours. Having a good relationship with various different suppliers and distributors and related companies can really make the difference to the profit margins of your business.
Tweets can also change the effect of your marketing strategy. When tweeting, be sure to include various different opportunities to encourage customers to take up products and services from your company. Special offers, promotions and competitions are a good way of generating income.
Constant reminders of these, so long as they aren’t too annoying, can really boost awareness.
The use of emotion is the final aspect to using twitter in the most effective manner. Be sincere in all aspects of your business’ twitter account; keep friendly relationships with contacts and followers, put up pictures of the CEO or employee of the month etc. Tweeting personal (not too personal!) experiences shows that you are also a normal human being, just like everyone else. This personifies the business, giving it a human image.
