Twitter is powerful platform for making new connections and growing your audience quickly and effectively. The key to getting discovered on Twitter is to build a strong online brand. Whether your are managing an organisational account or personal one, every tweet counts, and affects how your brand is perceived by your audience.
Here are few ways to get your account discovered on Twitter:
1. Make it perfect
While people see what is tweeted on Twitter, they also see who’s tweeting. Your profile picture, username, and page say a lot about you. What kind of image are you presenting to those who see them?
Username and Display name
The most important part of your Twitter profile is the username and display name you choose. Not only that they are attached to every tweet you post, but they are also the most important way for your account to be seen on search engines. Make sure your username and display name fit the image that you are trying to show. For example, if you want to appear as being highly professional, having a username like ‘CuteGirl123’ is not helpful at all!
Having a profile picture gives your profile a personality. It also shows other users that you are a real person and not a spammer or fake account. But make sure it fits the brand image.
When somebody visit your Twitter account, whether through their notification page, a tweet of yours that has been retweeted, or by searching your username, they will be taken to your profile page. From looking at your profile, users will decide whether or not they want to follow you. Your Twitter bio is essential, and you should take advantage of its section by including keywords that you want people to associate with you and your account. This is an excellent way to communicate who you are and what you’re about.
Complete Your Profile
You can boost your profile even more by including a cover photo, theme color and linking your website. Include your location in your profile to increase your chances of being discovered.
2. Get Tweeting
Twitter is all about what is new and relevant. To be discovered on Twitter, posting frequently is the key. When you tweet, you appear at the top of searches, hashtags, and newsfeeds. The idea behind tweeting often is that you are achieving this consistently. Tweeting often can be challenging in the midst of a busy life – a great way to overcome this challenge is to use a scheduling program such as Buffer to space out your tweets.
Hashtags are an excellent feature of Twitter that sorts tweets categorically, making it easy to search for topics and conversations. Using hashtags in your posts means that your posts are opened up to new audiences outside of those who follow you.
Engage in Conversation
Engaging in Twitter conversation gets your username out into the Twittersphere. When you engage in a public conversation with another user on Twitter, your username will be mentioned in their tweets, pointing their followers to your account.
3. Promote Your Profile
By listing yourself in Twitter directories (such as Twitter Counter) under relevant categories, you make your account more searchable. Twitter directories for business accounts include Social Brand Index.
Link to Your Profile
To boost your discovery, link your Twitter account to your websites, social media accounts or any other platforms. You could even consider including your username in email signatures or on business cards if it is relevant.
