Who says social media marketing is not an effective strategy?

On average, tweets with links generate about 86% more re-tweets. This is because link insertions elevate reader interaction.

When 36% of tweets are made with links, it is worth considering as a viable strategy.

In order to set your business on an uptrend, customers should know about your product. Links increase engagement metrics of your page and in return, drive clientele to your product.

It is advisable to insert links in about 70-80 % of your tweets.

In addition, links provide users with assurance and satisfaction that the brand and its products are known and unique and are not making any fake promises.

4. Decide the best time to tweet based on users’ activities:

Still, reaching the highest possible number of people on Twitter is not guaranteed unless you don’t know when to post. If you want to know the best time to tweet for you, you need assistance analyzing your Twitter audience’s activities.

Circleboom Twitter’s “Best Time to Tweet” feature gives users the personalized best posting times that show when your followers are online based on their detailed analysis of tweeting hours and days with an intuitive graphic. You can define your Twitter strategy by the best time to tweet to increase your Twitter engagement in return.

5. Design Short and Provocative Tweets

Here lies the major challenge!

Generating compelling content under 140 characters is no more than a writing challenge.

Researchers say that tweets under 100 characters are more likely to be noticed by customers. Short tweets receive 21% more attention than the others.

This increase in the probability of interaction leaves us with a greater responsibility as we can increase our reader base by keeping our tweets short.

Longer content often lacks in user engagement, as they are time-consuming for people making them less attractive.

The Twitter interface itself forbids long posts and supports the policy of keeping it short and elegant.

Also, when you write more, you don’t leave the customer room to express their ideas. Keeping things short gives the user a reason for interaction.

6. Win Traffic Through Visual Appeal – Add good images

Adding images to your post is an eye-catching and effective way of driving attention from users.

The idea behind this is very simple; intrigue your followers through colorful pictures and make them so curious that they need to check out what else you have for them!
