Create Twitter Headlines that Promote Your Business
” alt=”" width=”300″ height=”224″ />You might wonder what Twitter has got to do with your business promotion, after all, twitter has rigid character restrictions and with only 140 to play with, it means that any business related headlines have to be more than catchy, they have to be compelling. If you haven’t used Twitter before or if you did, but gave up bored with the constant ‘tweeting’ then maybe it’s time to rethink your approach to this successful social networking resource.
Twitter is the place for sharing links to content and if you create the right type of links, you will suddenly find that your tweets go viral and this means a real significant traffic boost from people who are interested in what you have to say or what you have to offer.
Now, if you are new to Twitter, it does take time building up a dedicated following, so don’t expect to have droves of people coming across to your site the moment you hit ‘tweet’. It’s also not all about you but about how you interact with others as well and this means sharing tweets that appeal to you and by return, often others will retweet your comments.
The most important consideration when you are creating a list of tweets is to think about the headline. What will make people sit up and think wow? What will make people want to click on the link that you have provided and go and read your articles or blog posts?
If you take your own real estate business as an example, you will no doubt have properties that you are trying to sale and possibly to rent out and Twitter provides a perfect resource for you to publicise these properties. Don’t just put ‘house for rent’ though because people do not know where the area is or even anything about the house. Your headlines have to make it worthwhile for people to take the time to stop what they are doing and to check out your website. Just getting people to your website is a real benefit because if they like what you have to offer, they may sign up for your newsletter or contact you directly through the site and see what else is available.
If you are smart, you will provide free information
about buying and selling that they can have if they sign up to your online newsletter and this provides you with a great opportunity to sell to them at a later date. If you are really smart, you will have some digital products aimed at the house sale or rental market and people can buy these from you and instantly download them. So you can see just how well Twitter can rocket your site visitors and give you the opportunity to sell to them. Don’t forget, these sales make additional revenue and once you have written one or hired a writer to provide a report on real estate for you, you can continuously sell the reports to your heart’s content.
So, if we think back to your Twitter headlines, you have to view it as the most important element because without it, your traffic will be drastically reduced. In a way, the headline is promising your followers something if they go and check-out your site. The promise could be something of great benefit such as a solution to a particular real estate problem. Make sure it is useful for your followers and if possible, contain a hint of urgency so that they click on the link immediately and it can really help if the benefit that you have provided is original and unique.
Short headlines work best and not just because of the 140 character restrictions. Short headlines will enable followers to retweet your headline and this is exactly what you want because you reach thousands of others in an instant. Don’t just use it as a sales tool but give a little of your own personality into the mix too because you then become a brand as well as a real-life entity.
