How to Increase Engagement on Twitter
To actually grow your business on Twitter, it's not enough to merely tweet for the sake of tweeting - you've also got to measure your efforts and analyze them to see your performance. That's how you find out if you're doing social media right. The copy you choose in your social updates has a major influence on the amount of engagement they get. Here are the 12 Twitter Engagement Tips you should be following:
1. Alternate between "title tweets" and "copy tweets."
According to HubSpot, "the average number of clicks per tweet with tweet copy was 98 clicks, and the average amount of clicks per tweet with a title was 110 clicks in June 2014."
2. Include shortened links to drive engagement.
Link clicks account for 92% of all user interaction with Tweets. So make sure you are using them if you want to boost your engagement.
3. Use attention-grabbing images in your tweets.
Tweets with images receive 18% more clickthroughs, 89% more favourites, and 150% more retweets.
4. Want retweets? Ask for them!
If you ask your followers to retweet content, they'll be more likely to. 12 times more likely to be exact. Make sure to spell out "retweet" too. Typing "RT" is less than half as effective.
5. Use actionable words like "Download."
According to Twitter, using actionable words like "download" will increase your clicks by an average of 13%.
6. Recycle your tweets.
As long as you leave enough time between the same tweets, it won't be noticeable and you'll receive similar levels of engagement.
7. Tweet about... Twitter!
Posting tweets about Twitter or other social media topics generally receive more clicks. If you can relate it to your business and feel it's useful information to pass on, tweet about it.
8. Don't worry about having too few followers.
It takes time to build a large list of followers, but you'll get there if you keep tweeting out click-worthy updates.
9. Want retweets? Schedule tweets for late at night.
