Twitter Marketing: Useful Tips and Strategies for Online Business

Twitter Marketing: Useful Tips and Strategies for Online Business

M3 Guest Blogger

Twitter has emerged as a sound platform for sharing short, bite-sized updates about life. It gives abundant opportunities to connect with the real world and (seemingly) does not rule out anything. Being a social network, Twitter is meant to connect people. With Twitter, being helpful can come as a recommended piece of advice. Some helpful strategies can successfully produce desired outcomes in your business marketing.

Get acquainted with your audience

Twitter marketing is surprisingly easy if you can adopt the right strategy. Be yourself when connecting with your audience. Avoid losing potential customers with off-color remarks or discussions. Be careful to not disclose too much about your own life. Many people do not actually wish to find that out.

It may seem comprehensive but your followers will appreciate it and respond better if you can engage more in them. User profiles and information can highlight the kinds of links and interests potential customers have. You can also get an insight into their cultural and demographic lifestyles.

Build a relationship

At Twitter, people go beyond doing promotions and selling products or services. They exchange ideas and share opinions. If you can attune yourself with your audience, you can give a start to a long lasting relationship. Hard selling may not work here.

Unwanted tweets can be detrimental to business. Twitter has been flooded by spammers who can cause aversion to followers. Aim at building a strong relationship with your target audience and answer their queries appropriately. Make your presence felt and stay updated with new tweets. Your Twitter account should be accessible to as many potential customers (target audience) as possible. Aim at establishing a strong following of people who are interested in your product (or service). Do not rely on random followers. When marketing on Twitter, quality can outperform quantity to help make way ahead of most of your competitors.

Maintain a border line about what you want to offer from your business. Twitter folks do not put up with a lot of promoting, although they realize what is going on. Twitter is all about creating and nurturing good market relations.

Set your business goals

A tool has multifarious dimensions and you can use your skill to utilize it optimally. Recognize your business objectives and prepare an action plan. If you intend to increase business visibility to make yourself more accessible, you may want to use Twitter to reach out to potential customers who live close by. You may talk about an upcoming community event sometime before and just after the event to highlight its significance and stay connected with your audience.

Finding promising tools

Find out practical ways in which Twitter can help your business. TweeAdder, promising Twitter marketing software, can be one such solution. The Twitter working makes it an effective online social network today. You need to create an impact to utilize Twitter for gainful purposes.

Concentrate on the current happenings. Although banner ads can contribute to creating awareness among the audience, direct sales are attributed to clicks. Promoted Trends and Promoted Tweets can produce encouraging outcomes. Do not spam links. Stress on providing worthy answers and opinions.

Pursue thoroughly

When dealing with social media, you cannot possibly control others’ behavior but you can certainly control yours. It is difficult to cultivate an audience for your brand via social media. A TV ad can score better here but you can make up by following through. A brand can potentially fail to make its mark if it does not recognize the campaign tools. The beginning is crucial but the conclusion is also important.

Twitter entails careful implementation as it is not difficult to produce business mistakes which can be detrimental. Build good associations and show eagerness to share and interact with people. Experts point out that your ability to stand in an outsider’s shoes (and look in) can make or break your business. Enable your business to find that viewpoint to unlock the door to success.

Tips to Improve Your Business When Growth is Slow

Tips to Improve Your Business When Growth is Slow

M3 Guest Blogger

There is always that time in business when the growth is slow and things move at a slow pace. Most businessmen fret and panic when their businesses see this phase.

 

What they fail to see is that this is the time, rather an opportunity to make improvements to their business, to make amendments, grow the existing network, review business strategies, chalk out new plans for sales, advertising and brand promotions, plan for diversification, and add new products and so on. So, what can be done and achieved when there is a lull in business?

Build contacts

This is the best and the most ideal time to socialize and grow your network. You never know who you may stumble across and how they might be a positive influence to your business. Your potential customer might be just around the corner. Try and attend as many networking events, get together, corporate conferences as you can and make new contacts. Be honest and genuine when you come across people and try to make their acquaintance with you as memorable as possible. Find a Networking Organization where you can grow your Network with Referrals. 

Seal the new professional relationship with the aid of ‘follow-up’

Just a chance meet with someone has never really done much good to any business. It all depends on how one changes that chance meet into something that is mutually benefiting, is what doing business is all about. This calls for timely follow-ups. By doing so, you are ensuring you remain in their memory, and so, whenever arises a need for something that you deal in, you would be the first person to crop up in their minds.

Get active on social networking sites

With almost half the population being on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter etc., these networking sites are a right place to grow your contacts. People who you may have chanced upon in a business meet or events might be there on any of these sites. Trace them and get them to join your network. Chances are, from them you may come across many more contacts that might really be of help to you. Invite your existing friends and business partners to join these networks, in case they already aren’t on any. This way you can keep growing your contact base.

Grow your products and services

Innovation, creativity, and thinking out of the box have always played key roles in getting a business to bounce back in action. This period is best suited for diversification, because it helps you taste success from different streams. It also works on the ‘ do not put all your eggs in one basket’ rule. Sticking to just one product can be suicidal especially when the growth is slow. If this product dies, then so would your business! However, if you choose to diversify, you may have another product to bail you out, in case one betrays you. Diversification therefore is the smartest thing to indulge in during trying times like these.

Strengthen your existing customer base

Show your customer what they mean to you. Thank and reward them for their loyalty by offering your customers of long standing, special rebates and discounts. This will ensure they continue to be by you. Improve your customer service. Not tending to your customers on time, especially during times like these, can prove fatal to the health of your business. Remember, it’s the customers who can both make or break a business.

Get your marketing folks to pull up their socks and get to work

It might sound contradictory to focus on marketing when the times are slow. But, this is indeed the department that should get to work at the slightest available opportunity, because you now would be needing more customers and it’s precisely during times like these that you would be needing new customers in order to survive the phase of lull.

Brush up and add to your own skills

It’s not just the business that you need to be concentrating on during a time like this, but also take time out to improve your own self, in terms of your skill sets. Add new feathers to your cap. Enroll for some course that compliments your career. For instance, if you happen to be an HR professional, you might want to take up a certification course in psychometric tests. This would add to your skills and bring more weightage to your profile.

Organize and make necessary purchases

Use this time to re-organize, re-design your place of work. Clear all the clutter and unwanted stuffs from your office and check if there is any scope for beautification of the office premises. You could also indulge in that long pending shopping for your office like purchasing a more efficient office desk & chairs, new systems or a mac system.

Be patient and positive

Always remember that this too shall pass and that this is only a temporary phase. Losing hope and courage can only multiply your woes. Instead, by looking at the whole thing with a positive perspective, you can not only emerge victorious from the cocoon of lull, but also take to the skies and scale new heights like a just emerged bright butterfly. By looking at this phase like an opportunity to grow and make innovations, rather than a depressing time, you will be able to take your business to new heights that it hadn’t been before the lull!

By being patient, positive and hardworking, no period of inactivity in business, should either bother or threaten you. Being able to look into the eye of a problem is what it takes to defeat it and destroy it like it never existed.

Tulsa Social Media Tools From M3 New Media Amid Facebook IPO Buzz

Tulsa Businesses Now Have Access to Total Social Media Agency with M3 New Meida Tools in Tulsa amid Facebook IPO Buzz says M3 New Media Founder Michael D. Butler

Tulsa-socialoutbreak
With Facebook set to go public later this month and the world watching the activity around the Facebook IPO, Business Owners scramble to connect with future customers on the social media platform that has over 900 Million users and, according to Mashable.com over half of those users log in daily. Social Outbreak, a product of Total Social Media Agency in Scottsdale, AZ launches with a bang in Tulsa, OK earlier this week says Founder MichaelDButler.com


According to Total Social Media Agency in Scottsdale, AZ 93% of Marketers use social media. And those business owners and marketers now have a new tool to effectively and systematically grow their Facebook Fanbase with a new tool called Social Outbreak™ powered by Total Social Media says Tulsa, Oklahoma based M3 New Media Founder, Michael D. Butler.

Social Outbreak Team Tulsa

For as low as $50 per month a business can now have access to a full blown social media agency and many of these same business owners have spent hundreds, even thousands of dollars on advertising and marketing on social media and particularly on Facebook. Product creator, Jim Lupkin, was in Tulsa this past week to share with Oklahoma business owners about the Social Outbreak™ product. “It basically makes any Facebook Fanpage a Website. That, coupled with the fact that you get to offer an ipad sweepstakes and the busienss owner is not even out the cost of the ipad. there is no product on the market that competes with ours and there is nothing even close to this affordable. We have 2 major National companies, one being a household name that we will be announcing soon is using our product, said Lumpkin.

“The Internet is coming of age and to have a tool like this for any business, author, brand, band, church or non-profit is simply a no-brainer,” says Michael D. Butler who was present at the Tulsa launch with his wife and other social media agency and Facebook Marketing PR Firm owners.

The research on Mashable.com shows that people are more likely to try a new product or service if their friends on Facebook have written a favorable review. “The truth is we will lose some short term sales by not providing some of our new clients with the expensive set up, design and management of their social media properties, the fact is now, with Social Outbreak we will have a more long-term, sustainable and educated client-and that will translate into long-term revenue for us and for them. And, since our customers get such quality step-by-step training on how to design their page, engage with new customers, and build a loyal fan base I think we will have loyal, happy customers for life. And that is a “win-win”‘ says Butler.

Social Outbreak is a direct sales model that pays multiple levels for referrals on product introduction making it a fast-growing, viral opportunity. Those individual business owners and social media agencies who want to know more can visit http://SocialOutbreak.com/M3NewMedia

Page-one-of Google
Get Your Brand on Page 1 of Google

Google looks at as many as 150 things or more when determining what to push to the top of Google Search. Things like, length of ownership of your Website domain is huge, so own it for 20 years from Godaddy not just 2 or 3 years so Google sees you as an owner not a renter is a huge key along with many others. But of the 100-150+ things Google, Bing and Yahoo like to index here are our top picks for March.

 

#1 thing is Frequently Updated and Relevant Content.
