Getting your information and ideas out to the masses is what social media and networking is all about, particularly if you are in business, but is anyone reading what you have to say? These tips will show you how to get your tweets read!
1- Schedule your tweets
Scheduling tweets and updates is a fantastic way to make sure you are getting valuable content out to your audience around the clock, even when you’re sleeping! Using third party tools, such as MarketMeSuite, allow you to schedule your tweets for an exact time and date so you know they will be seen by the people who matter most. It’s not always possible to be sat at the computer or tweeting via your phone, so setting up tweets to go out automatically really helps you stay up to date and in tune with your online social media audience. It’s also helpful if you have business and clients across the globe. You can schedule your tweets to go out in accordance to the time zones you wish them to be seen in. It makes your audience aware of your engagement with them and that makes for happy clients!
2- Search Your Data
There is no better way of knowing your tweets are being read than setting up searches for them. For example, always check to see if you have anyone @mentioning you in response to the tweets, this way you know your information is being seen and provoking conversation and discussions. Another great idea is to search Twitter for your company name or topics using hashtags. Hashtag searches allow people to make a tweet easy to find so if you get into the habit of using # to locate your tweets, you can see who has being doing it in response about you and your niche area of business! Searching your Re-Tweets is also an obvious but very effective way to see who has not only read your tweets, but found them interesting enough to retweet and inform others about them. Again, tools like MarketMeSuite allow you to pull in all this data in a clean, sophisticated and easy manner so you have it all in one place where you need it!
3- RSS Feeds For Your Blog Or Website
Allowing RSS Feeds to be activated via your business profiles, sites and blogs, means you allow people who are interested in your business to get involved and tweet your updates automatically. These feeds encourage maximum exposure which is crucial to your business and online presence. You can see who have been activating these feeds by searching for the URLS of the updates using MarketMeSuite. This is a great way of seeing who takes your posts seriously. Not only do you have the benefit of seeing how many people are active on your RSS Feed, you can also rest assured that all their followers will be made aware of you and your updates without having to do anything!
4- Tweet Questions
This is such a simple idea that it can be too easily forgotten and overlooked. By tweeting questions, it invites followers and users to interact with you and converse. By getting a response, you know your tweets have been read! Something as simple and easy as adding “what do you think?” or “would love to know your thoughts” at the end of an update encourages responses. And, if people repsond, you know you’re message is getting out there. Remember, if someone asks you a question, you tend to respond to it automatically, think like a human being when you tweet and you get the exposure and response you want.
5- React and Engage!
The core thing to know your tweets are getting read is to be human in your tweeting. If you tweet like a robot without no level of personal engagement with your audience, you will just look like spam and people will get bored. Tweet little personal touches now and then, “lovely day here in the office” or “good morning, hope you’re well!” as this provokes response. The more you engage with your followers as much as possible, the more they understand you care about them so you build a relationship. This all means that they grow to trust you and listen to what you have to say.
Key Take Away
Knowing how to follow through with tweets and, most importantly, to connect with your audience, means you can trust that your tweets are being read. Searching your links, keywords and tags all help you see who has re-tweeted, responded and engaged. Most importantly, make reacting and engaging once someone has taken action on your tweet a priority.
