6 Twitter Lists That Will Help Your Business
WHAT’S A TWITTER LIST?
Simply a Twitter list is a place where you can put other people, who use Twitter, and then find their content really easily. It also makes other people feel special as well, because when you put someone in a list, they get a notification showing them that you have a personal connection and that their content matters to you. So when you set up your Twitter account and before you start following thousands of people we would suggest that the following lists may really help.
It’s always nice when someone retweets you, it shows that they have not only read your story but they also think that other people should read it. The chances are they are also following or going to follow you much more closely. By adding them to the lists they are much more likely to continue to retweet you.
You should always add a list of tweeters that do the same as you, or have influence in your industry or business. So for example if you sell cars then following car magazines is a must, if you are a hotel or a guest house then follow all the tourist information sites and local attractions. What ever your business make sure you follows others doing the same, you will be amazed just how many ideas you can pick up.
As you run and build your business you start to meet all sorts of people, not just people in the same line of work as you but all sorts of other businesses and just like you network in the real world keeping those connections in the online world is really important, so from you accountant to your dentist if they are on Twitter add them to your network list.
Ever heard the old saying keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Well you should keep you competitors just as close on Twitter as your friends and colleagues. Knowledge is power so keeping an eye what other businesses are doing is really important. The only thing I would suggest is make sure the list isn’t public.
By following the people and business that you serve you will be one of the first people to see if there are any issues or opportunities arising. Sometimes a screen and a keyboard allow people to say things that they never would face to face or in meetings, by following your customers your are putting yourself in the best possible position to meet their needs.
YOUR AMAZING TEAM
If you have employees and they are on social media then you really need to be following them. Remember without them your business may not be where it is now. Just the same as customers they may give glimpses into their lives that they would not say at the office or place of work. You may then find yourself in a position to help that team member and ensure that they remain loyal and productive. When it comes to your team what ever business you are in then make sure you have a social media policy in place. It’s a simple set of rules of sorts that make sure both you and your business are being looked after.
