  • Helps you engage others and get the conversation started. Shows that you’re interested in others, not just spreading your own agenda Look for questions that others are asking and respond Shows that you are knowledgeable and helpful
  • Twitter can be a great way to break news before traditional news sources. Link to interesting and timely news, photos, videos, etc. Majority of these links should be directly related to your business Few random links to things that pique your interest personally Shows that you’re human, not an automated bot only concerned with one topic
  • Everyone loves compliments and others will think more highly of you
  • Newest form of flattery Great way to quickly share information and connect with others Simply retweet without editing Adda brief explanation of why you find it interesting shows you actually took a moment to read it
  • Recommend others on on #FF/#FollowFriday, or any day really (remember, social media is all about celebrating others). Consider recommending your competitors; just because you compete doesn’t mean you have to war Establish a friendly relationship is the more intelligent (and adult!) way to go
  • Explain what links are about so your followers can determine if they’re interested in clicking on them If they don’t know what it is and only see a cryptic shortened URL, they’re not likely to click. Same for #FF  don’t just add a list of Twitters names, explain why you think others should follow these people Use separate tweets for each person if you have to
  • Use Twitter as a support desk or customer service channel for your business Answer questions Find solutions Be a guiding hand for those in need
  • Your main goal, naturally, but don’t let others know! Market your business, either blatantly or subtly. Nothing wrong with a little shameless self promotion Use in moderation If not, you’ll get unfollowed in no time
  • Shows that you pay attention to and value what others are saying Shows that you are perceptive and thoughtful
  • true answer to “What are you doing?” Something rather normal and dull Use in moderation If not, you’ll quickly loose followers
  • Often misinterpreted and can lead to confusion or insult Can be amusing if done right Know your audience Exercise caution Be prepared to offer an apology if someone just doesn’t get it
  • Emotion fuels engagement, especially anger and frustration Some might agree and want to commend you on your courage to say so. Some might feel the exact opposite and want to berate you on your opinion Understand that you will have people who disagree and want to tell you so. Remember to take a deep breath before lashing out and writing something you regret
