We always say that we need to Communicate with our customers when running a business today, since the whole world enters Social Media Era. And everything we do needs to be networked.
If you want a success in your business, you need to first make success in your related social media platform. Because now it is the time that customers take actions. All you need to do is to listen to them and communicate with them.
Twitter is the most important and popular platform to talk to your customers and fans directly. But if you have no followers, you have no one to talk to. So I will give you some tips on how to attract more twitter fans based on my own experiences.
1. Start to follow people.
It seems easy, but you have to keep in mind that “people” here means those twitter user who might probably be interested in your products. You can not follow people blindly, you need to focus on twitter user who have the same interest as your business do.
For example, If you are running a fashion site for online shopping, you have to find people who love fashion while love online shopping. You can find them by searching keywords through twitter’s searching bar.
2. Talk to people who you are following.
Read their tweets and reply them friendly. You can give them compliment, answer their questions…you need to make them feel that you are a friend of them online. Care about their daily lives, give them best advice when they need help by “Mentioning” them or “Retweeting” them. Then they will begin to notice you, follow you back, and want to know you.
And trust me, twitter users love to follow people who talk to them, if you love communication, lots of people will find you and will start t0 follow you.
3. Unfollow people who don’t follow you back in time.
You need to unfollow people who don’t follow you back. Solely spend your times on people who deserve your time.
4. Tweet more High-quality Tweets.
Tweet information that are not “nonsense”. You followers would like to know what is going on with your business, what is the hottest trend in your feild, what is the story behind…they don’t want to know how many burgers you eat today and why you hate the girl who lives next door!
5. Follow your related industries and retweet useful information from them.
If you are a movie studio, you can retweet tweets from movie companies on new movie previews; if you are a restaurant manager, you can reweet tweets from healthy tips on “green recipe” etc. Make your twitter as a information source.
