Twitter is one of the world's biggest platforms for social media; with its 330 million active users monthly. The best part about twitter is that you can reach an incredible number of followers, and you can also do it without spending a dime. I am sure that we all are aware of a tweet of some short that just blew up and completely changed that person's life forever. An example of the sheer power and wonder of Twitter is how a company has found itself in a multi-million-dollar deal with just one single tweet. This one tweet from Marketing Eye’s account was able to reach 1.7 million users on Twitter. While it is nice to go viral, it is even better if a business can benefit from it; which it did.
Should you take up a new opportunity or not?
Jump to 2003 where you have Chris Messina, a social technology expert, who asked his following how they would feel about using the pound sign to keep track of conversations on Twitter.
One such technology asked for Marketing Eye's competitors, and did an analysis on where they sit from a digital perspective compared to Marketing Eye Atlanta. It was fascinating. Our company is a mere 4 years old in the US, and in year one, we realized that we outperformed all our competitors on Google listings/rankings and all areas of social media. It was something we were very proud of, as we don't spend all day pushing this medium, but a bit over 30 minutes in total including writing this blog.
Not trying to buy and build, these followers are real and with 97% authenticity, we have done a really good job.
Content = Leads = $$ = Recommendations = $$$$
Seems simple enough, right?
Then how are so many businesses getting it wrong?
The question really got me thinking. Each platform has a specific personality. All postings should be based on your audience, but you have to think about how they want to hear your valuable information. Do they want to read an extensive study? Would they prefer a humorous anecdote. What are they looking for? An easy way to make that decision is: What kind of attire is your audience wearing when they read your post?”
