Top Tips For Tweets

Social media mar­ket­ing is one of the most impor­tant aspects of any mar­ket­ing strat­e­gy. There are a few major play­ers in the game, the biggest is prob­a­bly Face­book, but Twit­ter is a close sec­ond. Some even claim Twit­ter is MORE impor­tant for busi­ness­es because of its abil­i­ty to han­dle rapid fire post­ing and its acces­si­bil­i­ty on mobile devices. So for any­one look­ing to take advan­tage of Twit­ter, here are five easy tips based on the most recent tim­ing study done by Bud­dy Media.

1. Don’t max out your char­ac­ter lim­it, instead, stay around 100 char­ac­ters per tweet. This tech­nique net­ted a 17 per­cent high­er response rate because it allowed room for peo­ple to add their own com­men­tary when Retweet­ing.

2. Add links to your Tweets. Tweets with links enjoyed a 86 per­cent high­er Retweet rate. Ensure that you’re link­ing prop­er­ly, dead links mean dead busi­ness oppor­tu­ni­ties! Keep in mind, the most com­mon cause of dead links is improp­er spac­ing.

3. Make sure to include a rel­e­vant hash­tag in your posts. Tweets with hash­tags receive twice the engage­ment as non-tagged Tweets! Be aware though, more than one or two hash­tags per tweet can start to turn peo­ple off.

4. Be sure to include images with your tweets. Tweets that include an image link dou­ble cus­tomer engage­ment!

5. Final­ly (and this may seem obvi­ous but it’s sur­pris­ing­ly rare) Ask your fol­low­ers to Retweet! Don’t do it with the short­hand “RT” unless you have to though. The study shows that while ask­ing with “RT” gar­nered 12 times the Retweets, ask­ing with the whole word “RETWEET!” showed an amaz­ing 23 times the response!
