Do you feel like you put in a lot of time and energy into your twitter account? Would you like to see more website traffic as a result? Would you like to know that what your doing makes a difference?
If so, then it is time to increase your website traffic with these 5 magical Twitter strategies.
1. Initiate a Personal connection
Everyone loves to feel special. You can create this special bond with your Twitter followers by sending them personal direct messages.
When new Tweeps on Twitter choose to follow you, take a moment to check out their bio and their tweets. If they are an ideal prospect, or a potential connection, then take a moment to introduce yourself and share what you like about their page.
Don't jump in with a sale or pushing your business, instead tell them how you can relate to their bio or what you like about their tweets. It's important to establish a real, personal connection FIRST!
2. Add Keywords to your Short Bio & Tweets
By adding keyword phrases to your short bio and tweets, you make it easier for ideal prospects to find you. There is a difference in action between prospects who are hanging out and prospects who are ready to buy.
Prospects who are ready to buy are doing specific searches. They are typing keyword phrases into their Google search boxes and Twitter search boxes. They want the information and help they desire…and they want it NOW.
Think about your own behavior, when you are ready to buy a scarf you DON'T go to google and type in “scarf”. Why, because that would be too vague and super unhelpful. Instead, if you're ready to buy a scarf you may type in “royal blue knit scarf”. Typing in the keyword phrase is going to get you much closer to your desired goal of a new scarf.
So, use keyword phrases that are relevant to your niche product or service and make it easier for buying prospects to find you!
3. Include your URL in your bio and point it out
First you want to be sure that your website URL is apart of your bio. Also, if possible, you want to share a URL that links Twitter followers directly to a private page on your website. The purpose of this private page is to only welcome Twitter followers. (Again, you want your followers to feel special! )
However, having your URL in your Twitter bio is not enough because followers don't actually visit your Twitter page that often. Instead, they interact with your tweets in their home feed.
Thus, it is important that you tweet about your website and provide the link in the tweet. This way people will be reminded of your website and where they can learn more.
4. Custom design your background space
Twitter not only allows you the opportunity to create a profile, but you can also design your own profile background. This is HUGE! Your Twitter background can speak volumes towards who you are, what you do and how people can learn more.
Your Twitter background can have a picture of you, your business logo, your latest product or book. It can show a picture image of a testimonial or a link to a free offer or special deal.
Have fun with your background but keep it clear. You want to make sure it is really easy for visitors to understand what you do, why you do it and how they can take action. Ultimately, you want visitors to take action. So, give them a reason to follow through and make it super easy.
5. Offer Exclusive Deals to Twitter Followers
If you haven't already noticed the theme of this article is to make your Twitter followers feel special. (That's when the magic happens!) And, exclusive deals for followers does just this. It also keeps them coming back to check in frequently because they know you offer special deals.
Don't make it complicated. Most of the time Entrepreneurs don't offer deals because they over think them or try to make them more complicated than necessary. Keep any exclusive offer simple and fun.
For example, you could post: “20% off all dating profile critic if you schedule today – Exclusive for our Twitter followers. Just mention you saw this post.”
You can even start a deal of the week. This will keep followers coming back week after week after week!
