MY THOUGHTS ABOUT CREATING A TWITTER CHAT
Everything you do in marketing needs to have a reason and hosting a Twitter chat is no different, although it may seem daunting at first if your reason for hosting this event is strong enough you will find the learning curve relatively simple. the other big benefit is that you don’t need any outside software to get going and its FREE.
 
Set a time and date and run a test campaign in your office or with friends, maybe when you’re all watching a football match or some other event where its great to voice your opinions on what’s happening.

Why Twitter Is A Must For Your Business

Why Twitter Is A Must For Your Business/Brand?

Katy Perry does it, Justin Bieber does it and Barack Obama does too! They all tweet.

These three celebrities have more followers worldwide on Twitter than anyone else, with a combined total of 170.49 million followers (Katy has the most with 61.53, Justin has 57.77 and the President of the USA has 51.19). They are known across the Globe, proving that if you are in business or have a brand to promote, you should have a Twitter account! It’s that simple.

Here are some other reasons for joining Twitter:

1, To connect

Twitter is one of the best modern day ways to promote your business, while connecting with your prospects. During the second quarter of 2014, Twitter had 271 million monthly active users.

2, Branding

With Twitter, you can use the power of words and images to engage and promote your brand to your followers.

3, It’s as free as a bird

Twitter is a cheap form of marketing as it is free. You can also pay for adverts on Twitter, if you want to.

4, To demonstrate your expertise

You can show off your knowledge and expertise in your carefully worded messages so your audience will know who to turn to when they need to know something about your niche market.

5, Share news

Twitter is the ideal way to share news about what is happening as it happens. You can also tell everyone about your special offers or coupons for reductions.

6, It is viral

Your clever communications can prove to be so popular that they go viral and are sent around the world. You just have to remember the last year’s world cup to know how quickly your words are spread, if they are on Twitter.

7, Your sales can soar

By using Twitter, you can promote your business and brand across the world, increasing the number of prospective buyers.

8, Feedback from customers

Twitter allows your customers to converse with you and it’s a great way of getting feedback. This provides live testimonials as well.

9, Customer loyalty

As your customers get used to you and your tweets, they also get used to your branding and become loyal clients.

10, Keep up with the competition

Twitter is also a good way of spying on your competitors so you can adjust your marketing strategy accordingly and hopefully overtake them.
