Before You Start

However, having a Twitter account and hundreds of followers is not enough to start your marketing campaign.

Just because you have an account doesn’t mean that you can already hard-sell and over-promote your brand. Bear in mind that Twitter is a social networking site. This means that you need to have a strategy to take advantage of its social aspect to leverage your brand. You have to learn first how you can connect and engage with your followers.

First thing that you need to do is plan on how you’re going to present your company, as well as your products and services. Find and implement good tactics that will shed light on your company, without annoying your followers.

Using Twitter to help develop your business could be a beneficial undertaking. However, you need to carefully build a good strategy that will help you engage your followers and leverage your brand further.
