A question we often receive from customers at iTribeMedia is “why should my business tweet?” What advantage would I have by joining this social media platform? I have a few major benefits below that will make you hop on the Twitter Train very quickly..
Build a Relationship
Your Twitter followers want to know what you have to say. If your customers seek you out on twitter, they automatically and voluntarily want to know what you have to say. They want to know what your business has going on. They want to see what deals you have to offer. Free access to your loyal customers – why not?
RT aka Retweet
Following respected mentors and influential businesses can help you spread your word. When you #hashtag your tweets to your specified business with designated keywords, you never know who will RT what you have to say.
Example: You are a singer and would like to notify your followers that you have a new single coming out. You tweet “I have a new single coming out on 6/15/2014, subscribe to our website for a free preview. #single #track #singer #music #mtv”. MTV could potentially retweet this to all of their followers. (all 10.6 million followers)Who could say no to that free advertising?
Your competition is already there
Your competitors are already on the bandwagon! This should be enough reason for you to make your presense known.
Like anything else, Twitter only works if you do. Put yourself out there. Converse with your customers. Get involved in the community. This is just one of the ways the magic will start to happen as you build your tribe..
We would love to know what social media platforms your business likes to use!
