To maximize your Twitter exposure, save your best posts for the peak time between 1:00pm and 3:00pm. The best results will occur Monday-Thursday. with traffic fading after 3:00pm. Avoid posting after 3:00pm on Fridays as you will get the least exposure at that time.
It sounds simple, but stay active! Do you have a favorite user on Twitter that you follow? If they stopped posting for weeks or months on end would you still engage with them? Would you unfollow them? Stay active and post regularly to retain the interest of your fans and followers.
Use proper capitalization for the first letter in each word for your #Hashtags! Take this example from yesterday. Those using “#nowthatcherisdead” (#NowThatcherIsDead) Was misread by many as “#NowThatCherIsDead”. How might others misinterpret your hashtags? BTW, Cher is alive and well. RIP Thatcher.
Look for tweets where people (especially influential people) say something good about you, your skills, your expertise, your content, your products, or your services. “Favourite” your best mentions to create a list of positive feedback, and then embed the tweets on a testimonial page.
First, research existing Twitterchats, and participate in them, so you know how they work. Then, plan the details of your Twitterchat: choose/research a relevant hashtag, register the hashtag, prepare a few questions and set a schedule. During the chat, make sure you follow your impressions.
Do you have a custom hashtag for your event? Register the hashtag with Twubs, and get a brandable, media-rich hashtag landing page (Twub page), a moderated “Tweet to Screen” widget (for live events), and a customizable feed that can include multiple hashtags.
I may have said this before, but it’s important. If your bio says, “I tweet about social media marketing,” your last 10 tweets should NOT be how to plant the perfect rose. Tweet about what you tell people you tweet about!
