Twitter for BusinessThere are various ways Twitter can be used for business. It’s a great platform for potential customers to be introduced to a product and to gain affinity for the business.

People all over the world can read your tweets and learn more about your company. Twitter has the ability to make a company grow in popularity and success.

First let’s hear from Murray Newlands with some tips on how to tweet successfully:

How to Use Twitter for Business

A company’s presence on Twitter shows how popular they really are with customers. One of the easiest ways to grow in presence is by having a good profile with a clear picture and a personal description. This allows potential followers to know what your business does. Users can easily identify the company when they see it outside of Twitter and know who they are.

Active engagement with Twitter users is needed to keep a company’s presence popular on Twitter. Having conversations with users on the public timeline allows others to join and increases engagement for the company.

Be Retweetable

Make your tweets re-tweetable so others can share them with friends and re-tweet a user when they mention the company or it’s products. This shows followers that you are aware of their presence and respect their opinions.

Launching a New Product on Twitter

Twitter is highly valuable when launching a new product. Tweets that promote contests or show sneak peaks of a product can create buzz. This can lead to more potential sales by fans that become invested in the company by tweeting and re-tweeting about a product.

The product can be a success months in advance of its release based solely on the conversations people are having about it on Twitter.
