3. Use hashtags carefully

Everyone loves hashtags, and we’re all aware of the benefits they bring, especially on Twitter, but it’s important to be using them carefully so you can get the most out of them. You should be choosing keywords that are relevant in the current climate and to your organisation. Less is more too; a few key hashtags will help you more than 50 irrelevant, general ones.

4. Make full use of Twitter’s features

Did you know that on Twitter you can run polls? Utilising Twitter’s features like this will boost your interaction with your audience.

5. Connect with your audience

The best way to boost your engagement and build your following is to connect with your audience. Replying to their replies, or even giving them a like will do wonders for your presence on the platform. Similarly, retweeting works well alongside this.

6. Make your page as visual as possible

Twitter is mostly just pages of words. Make your Tweets stand out by using images and videos, even GIFs can help catch people’s attention. For video content, it’s best to keep this on the shorter side and remember to always use captions.

7. Be clear

Ensure what you’re tweeting is easily understood, especially in your CTAs, you should be telling your audience exactly what you want them to do. If you do this well, you’ll see your followers boost, or whatever your CTA was. Although Tweets are capped at 280 characters, make sure that each Tweet is only communicating one message at a time, you can do a separate Tweet for another message.
