Twitter

On Twitter, there are over 6,000 tweets sent every second. That adds up to more than 350,000 tweets every minute. As a business owner, those incredible stats mean two important things. The first is there’s no question that Twitter is a very active platform, which means having a presence on it can put your business in front of lots of potential customers.

The second important takeaway is trying to manually keep up with everything that’s happening on Twitter simply isn’t possible. While staying in the loop and engaging are key parts of building a strong presence on this platform, you need a tool to properly manage this type of activity.

The good news is that’s exactly what Send Social Media can help you do. By using all the features provided by our tool, you’ll be able to grow your Twitter page fast. Whether you’ve already spent some time on the platform or are just getting started, here’s how Send Social Media can help your page grow:

Because Twitter has hundreds of millions of active users, it’s important to focus your efforts on the right audience. Send Social Media helps by automatically finding new customers and growing your following by reaching out to targeted prospects around the world or in your local area.

Reach Out

Not only does Send Social Media make it easy to identify your target audience, but we also streamline the process of reaching out. Through mechanisms like following, we can help your profile actually engage with the users you want to reach. Engagement is essential for quickly growing your Twitter page.

Schedule Posts in Advance

Spending time on Twitter definitely plays a role in growing your profile. However, as a business owner, you don’t have hours every day to be active on Twitter. The good news is using Send Social Media means you’ll still be able to successfully grow your profile. That’s because we enable you to schedule posts in advance. This will keep your page active even when you aren’t on your phone or computer.

Keep Up with Relevant Conversations

Social media platforms are all about conversations, which is why we make it easy to keep up with the ones that matter to your business.

When Facebook first launched over a decade ago, it was all about helping college students connect with each other. Then as the platform grew, people outside of college campuses were allowed to join. This transformed the platform into a place where friends and families could interact with each other. Eventually, Facebook allowed large companies to establish a presence on the platform. This was later expanded to businesses of all sizes. If you look at the other major social platforms, most have followed a similar strategy of initially focusing on individuals and then bringing in businesses.

 

When businesses first got on board with social media, a large percentage made the mistake of only using these platforms as a means for self-promotion. Since that strategy is almost always doomed to fail, businesses moved on to looking for a better way to engage with social media users.

The Importance of Listening First

 

The search for a better approach to social engagement led many businesses to the same conclusion. That conclusion is listening needs to come first. Because social media is all about conversations, listening is a must for finding opportunities to engage in an authentic and meaningful way. Although this approach may initially seem backwards to the way businesses normally approach marketing, those that stick to this method realize it’s actually very powerful. Businesses can establish a strong connection by taking the time to understand customers and then letting them know the business understands what they’re saying.

How Agencies Can Help Clients with Social Listening

 

If you run an agency that does social media marketing for clients, they may want you to take the lead on social listening. And in many cases, a client may not fully understand the value of this type of activity until you’re able to show them real examples and successful outcomes.

 

In the past, social listening across multiple platforms could be quite challenging for a single brand, let alone multiple client brands. But thanks to Send Social Media, you can pull all this information into a centralized dashboard. This efficiency means you’ll be able to make the most of monitoring client brands and engaging in social listening.

 

Thanks to the features of Send Social Media, it’s possible to take full advantage of activities like listening to industry conversations to get a better sense of your client’s niche, identifying customer pain points to create better content and finding potential brand advocates for your client. Being able to easily manage these kinds of activities will have a noticeable impact on clients’ customers experiences and brand images, which in turn will allow your agency to charge a premium for the value you’re delivering.
