What Are The Keys To Twitter Success?

‘Key’ word research – Identifying the most relevant keywords to your audience will allow you to tap into topics that they are interested in. In addition, content with keywords has a greater chance of capturing their attention and interest.

Keep a watch on terms which are ‘trending’: These terms allow you to capture what is important to users right now!

Craft your tweets carefully. This means that you need to send the right tweet in the right language at the right time. Here are a few things to consider when writing your tweets:

  • Twitter engagement for brands is 17% higher on weekends according to Dan Zarrella’s research so make sure you tweet on Saturdays and Sundays.
  • When we look at what’s the best time of day to post, re-tweets have been shown to be highest around 5pm. For clicks, the best times seem to be around noon and 6pm.
  • Post tweets with image links as they get twice the engagement rate of those without.
  • Include links, as tweets that include links are 86% more likely to be re-tweeted.
  • Write tweets that have fewer than 100 characters as they get 17% more engagement.
  • Make use of hashtags as tweets with hashtags get double the engagement of those without.
  • Your tweets are 12 times more likely to be re-tweeted if you ask for it. This rises to 23 time more likely if you use the full word “re-tweet” rather than an abbreviation such as “RT”.
