I started tweeting sometime last year after a conference called No excuses 2 , I had heard about tweeting but was not really interested till I went back to look at some resources the speakers at no excuses had available to everyone that had attended.
Ray Higdon’s short training on using twitter really interested me and so I started tweeting.
Of course, I start adding people and talking to people and no one replies back, that is frustrating right, that’s why I want to share with You some of the things I’ve learned so far on twitter
I want you to know that you can get people to listen to you and respond , just go over the few tips here the list is not exhaustive but you definitely will see changes and please let me know how this can help you.
1. Think Like your readers
Ever heard the statement to understand a child you have to get into a child’s mind well think of them as your children, find out what do they really want , what are their needs, then tweet things that will address these needs.
Your tweet should be appealing and for emphasis interesting to them.
What happens when you watch an interesting movie or read an interesting book, you tell others if what you tweet is interesting to them. They will tell others and they do this by re-tweeting, quoting , and marking tweets as favourite and most especially following you.
2.Use Consistent Excellence To stand out from the Crowd
Ever heard this statement it’s actually from the bible it reads “seest thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men”.
Take time to notice who stands out on from your twitter feed you’ll notice they consistently give excellent tweets, it’s important not only to send tweets,consistency is also needed. Make sure they are excellent. This will keep your followers coming back and broadcasting your tweets
3. Sell the headline –
Yes, you don’t want to sound like a sales man and you shouldn’t but before we do most things consciously and sometimes unconsciously we are first sold on.
So how do you go about selling your headline.Now you don’t want to make this aspect of selling in your face and so you would need a some creativity here. Use words that speak and concentrate on the reader. e.g You, there could also be benefits included but you must deliver and above all be truthful, if you would give a free gift make sure you deliver.
You don’t like being lied to and neither do your readers so always be upfront with information. It pays in the long run. If the material is not originally your own it’s ok to restructure it after all it’s your ingenuity that’s bringing lot’s of traffic to their site.
Have fun and this is definitely not all I’ll continue in the next post.
