Maintaining a twitter channel

If your company decides to try to be active in this network, then the first question is likely to arise – what to publish?

The main difficulty that may arise is the need to meet 140 characters, but with the right content, the results will not be long in coming.

Consider the most common content types:

  • news model. In this channel, it would be wise to write about your company, in general, mini-media with various events.
  • showcase model. An attractive description of the product or service leading to the company’s website is used.
  • poster model. It works well for companies that hold conferences, various events, thus allowing you to increase the company’s PR activity.

Please note that in general, content types should be different, so you need to plan for them in advance.

Twitter channel promotion

We are approaching an important stage – the promotion of the channel and the increase in followers.

I recommend using the following ways to promote Twitter:

  • Own blog or website.

In the process of promoting a Twitter account, it is effective to use your website or blog. What you need for this: install the “Retweet” and “Subscribe” buttons in the site’s articles, install them in a conspicuous place. Don’t forget to add a call to action, this will be the impetus for action for the target audience.

  • Distribution of content.

Special content is selected that is interesting to your target audience. For example: life hacks, infographics, exclusive news. To achieve the desired result, you need to follow the content of the blog and site if you promote the site through twitter. A large number of links to all well-known sites will not attract subscribers, but short posts with a call to follow the link to your site or blog will help increase traffic to your resource, as well as attract followers.

  • Holding contests and promotions.

Another niche for attracting subscribers to your channel. In order for this method to produce the desired results, think carefully about the idea of ​​a contest or survey. All participants must clearly understand the purpose and end result. Don’t forget about prizes and incentives for participants.

  • Use of hashtags.

It is mainly informational in nature, allowing the company to constantly be in the public eye.

  • Promoted Tweets (Twitter’s own advertisements).

This ad is that your posts will appear higher in the search results. The advertising fee will be charged each time the follower clicks on the link or sends this post to their friends.

  • Announcement from popular twitter users (opinion leaders).

You can find followers who have several or tens of thousands of subscribers with your target audience. This user will retweet your content or encourage their followers to follow.

черные и серые методы продвижения в твиттере

There are also black and gray methods of promotion through Twitter. These methods also allow you to promote the channel, and much faster. But in the future, there will be no return from them, since this is not your target audience.

  • There are several ways:

Subscribe-unsubscribe (mass following).

This method means that the owner subscribes to followers on Twitter according to certain criteria (interests, age, geo), and a certain number responds.

Examples of following services:

  • followback.info (closed) is a service that adds 100 followers to your account.
  • https://manageflitter.com/ – Follows 100 people per day.

This method is best used at the initial stage, when your company is not well known. In the future, the reputation of the company may suffer, so it is up to you to choose this method or not.

  • Buying followers.

There are different number of cheat services. Basically, the quality of followers leaves much to be desired, as they are mostly bots or dead accounts. This method is good for channels that have very few subscribers. There is an opinion that people are more willing to follow famous or well-followed accounts.

The above methods of promoting a Twitter channel are the main ones. I recommend that you be patient at the first stage, test and analyze the results. Only in this way you can achieve the desired result, the main thing is to experiment, combine. Do not forget that Twitter is primarily a source of news, educational or entertainment information. That is why it allows you to increase traffic to your sites.
