Social media has over a billion users that are currently active on the platform. People from all over the globe use social media to connect or reconnect with individuals. Professionals use social media to advertise and network with other professionals. Therefore, professionals use social media to engage with their audience, and other professionals. Even so, it is highly recommended for those professionals to reach audiences for business interaction. Businesses rely on social media to interact as well as marketing. When it comes to social media for businesses, it is highly a priority to engage with your audience. So, how to use Twitter for your business?

 

Twitter is an interesting platform with 140 characters and hashtags. It is where most people just engage in hashtags to be a part of the conversation. Now, I want you to consider the next steps as an assignment for you to acknowledge the do’s & don’ts when setting up a business page on Twitter.

 

The ten do’s.

  1. Interaction
  2. Campaign
  3. Promoting
  4. Advertising
  5. Updates
  6. Products
  7. Services
  8. Events
  9. PR
  10. Showcase

 

The Ten don’ts.

  1. Personal usages
  2. Profanity
  3. Harassing
  4. Bullying
  5. Political
  6. Soliciting
  7. Spam
  8. Discrimination
  9. Hate Speech
  10. Scam

 

The way you use twitter for your business is by being more aware and conscience of your business practices. Know what your 140 character words will be and how you going to reach your audience. The best way to get results for your business is by using hashtags to get impressions which are like views in a way. The higher your impressions are, the more conversions you will get for your business. Conversions are when people click on what you advertise or say on twitter. It is difficult for a business to get sells digitally. However, if you grasp it, you may get results that can be sells. Here is what I want you to do as of developing hands on skills on Twitter.

 

  • Set up a Twitter page for your business
  • Add contacts
  • Make sure your page is set from logo to website link
  • Type 4 to 6 messages using hashtags from trending topics
  • 140 words has to be about brand awareness which is soft selling your brand
  • Explain your business through two messages
  • Present a product or service through two messages
  • Leave a link in one message
  • Use a picture or video of your product or service in one message
  • Interact with curious consumers.
  • Be transparent and confident in your pitch
  • Sell your brand mission and vision to the consumers
  • Repeat each of these steps again each week or month.

 

You will see results within these steps. However, there is no guarantee on getting sells. It depends on your pitch and product. Have to find a way to persuade your audience into buying your product or service.

 

 

Good luck and keep practicing

What you need to know about marketing

What you need to know about marketing,

Jimmy parents are trying to buy him a car as a high school graduation gift. Jimmy parents weren’t sure where to buy a BMW 2010 M series car until an ad from a local car dealership appear on TV. At that moment, they found what they were looking for but the price was a bit steep. Another car dealership ad comes on TV. Even though this dealership was out of town, the price was reasonable. After discussing where they should go to get Jimmy that car, they decided to go out of town for the reasonable price. Now what did you learn from this example. There were some key assessments that happen in this example.

  1. Advertisement
  2. Promoting
  3. Campaigning
  4. Strategy

Both car dealership use all four elements in this example. They strategize their target areas and prices. They both advertise their product. They promoted their product. They campaign their product. However, one dealership had a better marketing plan. In this case, the parents took the second dealership with the reasonable price. Even though they had to travel out of town, the price was enough for them to take that risk.

Businesses invest nearly millions of dollars on marketing alone. It is the most competitive industry due to the demand to be first among competition. There are so many marketing businesses even small marketing businesses that wants to be in the cash cow competition. Every marketing firm offers the same service as each other. Which is why marketing such a hard-driven industry. Most marketing firms do not offer hourly wages but offer commission based incentives on sells. If you expecting a high salary earning in marketing, you must sell more than the next person.

It’s all about sell, sell, sell. How you sell is how you convince people why you are the best option. The first rule of marketing is never sell your client too high or too low. For example, your client wants to over price their service with your assistance. Given their background and experience which are key essentials for a marketing consultant to assess; you want to protect them from over selling themselves too high. It’s great to have high spirits and confidences. You must remember to think about the consumers. What is reasonable for them and how good is the quality. Understanding the market and consumer behavior. Clients will come with overly high expectations for you to market their brand. It is upon you to assess, examine, evaluate, strategize, and create with all the information giving to you.

Marketing is a sport won by playmakers and coaches. You must execute them right in order to score a winning solution.
