An Engaging Social Media Platform

Doing the Do on Social Media Platforms

The “Do” I’m referring to is getting down and socializing. Carrying on conversations with real people.

For the sake of simplicity let’s use Twitter as the “social media platform” of choice to talk about today. #Twitter just so happens to be my favourite.

Now, when I say socialize, I mean you know “talk” via tweets. That’s the point right? To engage fellow social media types into back and forth “conversations”.

Do you comment when you retweet? Yes? Great! Oh oh, did I hear a no? If you never initiate a conversation (attempt to engage) how exactly are you “socializing”?

Don’t just like and retweet, make a comment snarky, funny or sweet! Ask a question, make a request something that encourages a reply is best…

Tantalizing Twitter Tips

Tweet Twitter Tips…

Alas some sweet sweet brevity within the whirlwind world of Social Media.

3 effective Twittering tips that are real quick to implement:

  • Put your Twitter bio to good use: people check out your Twitter bio before following you. So make it good. Make it fun. Make it real. Choose words wisely, use the max available. Include your picture.
  •  Include an image in your tweet. Of course you want your tweet shared, but first you have to get people to read it. In a recent split test conducted by @Buffer, tweets with pictures received 18% more clicks, 89% more favourites & 150% more retweets.
  •  Engage with others on Twitter. Don’t just build it and wait for followers to come. Find, follow, like, retweet and instigate interesting Twitter conversations.

Take care,
