Twitter is so fast paced and dynamic that it can be challenging to keep your audience engaged. We’ve compiled this list of Twitter friendly post suggestions to help keep you on top of your game.
Ask your followers what they would like to see more of. This is a great way of finding out if there are any topics they want that you haven’t covered yet.
Get More Feedback
Post a poll or survey to gauge your audience’s opinion on something. What do they want to see more of next month? What tools are they using?
Share Some Inspiration
Create an eye catching graphic with a quote from one of your favorite authors or industry leaders.
Share Real Life Moments
Knocked over your coffee? Share a picture and ask who else wore their coffees today.
Go Behind The Scenes
Is your team working on a new project or planning for the upcoming quarter? Did you just receive a new shipment of product? Let your audience see you in action.
Answer a Question
Are there any questions you regularly get from customers? Post quick video answers to the questions. Bonus tip – keep a copy of these videos and post them again in the future.
Post a quote and image from one of your blog posts and link back to your blog. If the quote is informative and attention grabbing your audience will be more likely to click through to your blog.
Fill In The Blanks
Post a __________ with Fill In The _______________ and ask your audience to fill in the blanks.
If you have a new product coming out soon, tweet a series of previews to generate some curiosity. Pictures of product shipments, photoshoots, sneak peaks, and the final unveiling will keep your new product in your audience’s mind.
Tweet some last pictures of stock you’re discontinuing to help sell the last of the inventory.
Create testimonial and review graphics to tweet on a regular basis. Make sure you have permission to share the customer’s name before posting!
Send a Thank You tweet to a customer or supplier. Everyone appreciates receiving some gratitude from time to time. Don’t forget to @ mention them so they see it!
Twitter has always been a source of breaking news, so share some from your industry with your thoughts. Before doing this, make sure the news is appropriate for your brand and that you have a strategy in place if the news is not well received.
Share tips or something you just learned with your audience. Sharing knowledge can help your audience see you as a thought leader in your industry.
Ask for Suggestions
Engage your audience by asking them for suggestions for good books, podcasts, or documentaries. This helps you connect with your audience and helps them see the person behind the business.
Engage with your audience by asking them questions. If your Twitter audience is also a pool of potential clients, this is a good way of learning more about them. Finding out if they generally have a preference for all inclusive resorts or camping in the backwoods can help you make more informed decisions about how you position your products.
Find questions tweeted by other people and answer them. This shows your audience that you’re willing to engage with them and may help you catch the attention of leaders and influencers in your industry.
Your Affiliations and Partners
Share news and advice from companies and nonprofits that you work with and support. If they have an event happening or a new product launch, help them spread the word.
If you are going to any type of industry event, conference, or summit, share it with your audience.
Fun Holidays and National Days
Share a message and graphic with your audience for National Doughnut Day. Bonus if you treat your office to doughnuts and share a picture!
Take your Twitter message beyond the 140 character limit with a slide deck that your audience can view without leaving Twitter. This is a great opportunity to share a How To guide or a little history of your company. This will likely require an additional tool like SlideShare.
Memes can be a great way to inject some humor and common ground into many situations. There are many meme generators available online that will help you make memes with industry jokes and relatable references.
Share with your audience what you did on the weekend, what your favorite treat or snack is, or a picture of your pet. And ask them to do the same!
Retweet Other People’s Content
This is probably the easiest option on this list and it may be one of the most impactful. Supporting and sharing other people’s content can help you gain traction with leaders and influencers in your market and can be beneficial for your audience. Remember to stay on brand and only retweet content that will be useful.
