1. Set up your twitter account
Every time you sign-up to something new, you should always first know how you can secure your twitter account for your name or your company name.
Decide whether to have a separate professional and a personal account on twitter. If you find hard make to a decision, then one main account is fine for my recommendation. twitter can be time-consuming and you definitely want to spend more time on your business.
Should you separate your account? It completely up to you, how you intend to interact and tweet to. Watch this video from Social Media Examiner to see how Ann Handly combine two account into one.
2. Choose your twitter name
Before, you’re going to choose your name; there are few issues that you want to clarify:
- Twitter allows you to have your company name or your name within 20 characters.
- Avoid include your website or blog extension.
- Your user-name and the name in your profile do not have to be the same, as look at the above image, Ann Handley tweets under her user-name on Twitter. Twitter user-names are case-insensitive. Your user-name might be as capital like @MarketingProfs, but your fans will still be able to look for you at @marketingprofs.
If you still haven’t thought of a name to use on Twitter, Here is a great tip:
- Use your company name as your username and use name that people used to call you for your profile name.
3. Use an image of yourself
Use image of yourself can create a strong recognition for your customers. As well to show your fans that you’re a real person using twitter but not a spambot.
Having your own image on twitter is one of the best twitter tips that anyone can say.
If you have a problem of photo publishing, then you can convert your photo into a cartoon image and upload it onto your twitter profile.
If you do not know how to convert an image into a cartoon image, you can go Cartoonize, to convert your photo. With just one click, your photo will automatically convert into a cartoon image.
As Denise Wakeman said “you definitely want to use all the same image on all of your social media profiles”. So you can create a stronger recognition for your customers. For example: if you listen to your most favourite tune many times, you will be able to remember them very well.
One of the simple twitter tips: Avoid using your company logo as your profile image.
4. Come up with an interesting twitter bio
A biographic is important for you and your customers and fans because that tell them a little more about you so they can decide whether to follow you.
There are many ways you can come up with an interesting biographic:
- Using Keywords to describe your business
- Write a poem to entertain Twitterer
- Get straight into the point and don’t repeat your name on your bio.
Back in a day, twitter only allows one link to be used in the profile. Nowadays, you can even use 2 to 3 links on your profile.
However, it doesn’t mean that you’re going to place all links that you have, onto your profile. But we’re just going to use the old method which is to place only the most important link onto it.
According to step number 4, if you’re telling your personal information then you should link to the about page so that your customers and fans can know more about you.
Note: You only have 160 characters long to complete your biographic.
