How to Improve Twitter Engagement
This is a continuation of my post here.
I am trying to get a forum started here and I want to try and drive traffic to the forum from Twitter. So I searched online and have put a list of ideas together in hopes of getting the most out of twitter.
I will do some testing with asking questions. I am not talking about longer complicated questions but short and simple.
Maybe even try some fill-in-the-blank type questions or either or type questions.
I need to create photos that will add to my message.
Of course this means I will have to be creative and I am not very creative.
People who have tested images say that a close-up of a face, increased the success of a web page. I will try and Tweet some images of faces to test this idea.
I want to do some testing with videos to see if I get any response from them. Videos are kind of cool because followers can watch without leaving the platform.
#4: Slide Decks
I have not tried Slide Decks yet but since I am already trying to figure out a way to come up with some really cool and unique pictures I might as well try and incorporate them into slides and share them on Twitter as well.
And like videos followers don’t have to leave Twitter to view the slides.
I can try and create relationships with other Twitter users by sharing their content with my audience and hopefully they will repay me by doing the same with my content.
Twitter is an awesome way to stay current with news and trends. Many people rely on Twitter for their news updates.
So I can make sure my followers are update by sharing recent news and information.
Sharing useful content should help build credibility.
#7: My Thoughts
Every Tweet does not have to link out so from time to time I will just share my thoughts on different topics.
Sharing my thoughts is an effective way might spark a conversation.
I want to do some testing with quotes and try and do at least one or two per day.
I want to test memes and see if I can be funny. It’s not unheard of for a funny meme to go viral.
At the moment I am not sure of exactly what type of tips I can post but it is an idea that I would like to test as well.
#11: Trending Hashtags
If I can find hashtags that are already trending then I can use them to reach a larger audience. This should allow all my tweets to get a little extra exposure.
Knowing which topics are hot will allow me to tailor my content to match those hashtags. Of course I will need to research the hashtag and the conversation around it.
#12: Jump on the Bandwagon
Try and test Tweets that encourage people to become part of the team. People like to fit in and be a part of something bigger. Maybe I can use this to get people to join the forum and post.
I can also use controversial tweets to try and get people to respond.
#13: Test caps
I want to test all caps, no caps and sentence caps.
Is someone more likely to click on an ad with all caps verse sentence caps or lowercase?
