Is it because it’s the thing to do or because it will add to your communications?<br />What are your objectives for using Twitter? Be clear on your strategy at every step.<br />Don't get Twitterjacked. A foolhardy consumer may already be talking under your name. Claim your space.<br />Ensure communication is legal, decent, honest and truthful. Follow the CAP Code.<br />Don't over-tweet and overwhelm your audience. The traditional rules of consumer engagement still apply.<br />Allocate appropriate resources. Twitter is not a five minute job.<br />Establish a tone of voice appropriate to your product and audience. This is YOUR brand talking to real people.<br />Think about how you will measure success. Is number of followers enough if they’re not engaged?<br />© Copyright Tamar 2010 | Presentation Zen<br />
  16. 16. © Copyright Tamar 2010 | Presentation Zen<br />© Copyright Tamar 2010 | Presentation Zen<br />The IAB’s top tweeting tips<br />Be current. Twitter is immediate, so make your updates relevant, topical and insightful.<br />Don't hitch your wagon to popular trending topics. Learn the lessons of Habitat.<br />If you want to drive sales, make it easy. Give customers online vouchers or discount codes.<br />If you have specific products, services or incentives to promote, set up a dedicated Twitter feed.<br />Try to respond to direct messages, especially those from users interested in learning more about you.<br />Ask questions of followers, don’t treat Twitter as just another broadcast vessel. Encourage interaction.<br />Embrace the re-tweet. If you see a post that will interest your audience don't be afraid to re-tweet it.<br />© Copyright Tamar 2010 | Presentation Zen<br />
  17. 17. © Copyright Tamar 2010 | Presentation Zen<br />© Copyright Tamar 2010 | Presentation Zen<br />The IAB’s top tweeting tips<br />Promote your Twitter feed. Don’t expect people to find you. Advertise the fact that you use Twitter.<br />Always innovate. Whoever you are, 100 followers isn’t enough. Use your imagination to enlist more.<br />Plus a few of my own…<br />Don’t worry about following everyone back – have a unique Twitter experience<br />Take part in regular features - #FollowFriday, #CharityTuesday etc<br />Have a little bit of personality, if you can<br />Don’t worry about ‘rules’ – do what works for you and your brand<br />Track traffic from Twitter back to your site<br />© Copyright Tamar 2010 | Presentation Zen<br />
