Daily posting on your social media platforms. Extra doses of tweets every day on Twitter. Your creativity is waning.
It can be overwhelming not to mention challenging to come up with ways to interact with your audience and engage with them.
But, you want to develop strategies and content every day that keeps your Twitter followers coming back for more. So, how do you connect with them and come up with content strategies that work?
Check out these 11 brilliant ideas for unique and engaging tweets.
#1: Ask Questions
Tweet a question that’s easy for your followers to answer, and you’ll notice shortly a number of responses in your feed.
Consider fill-in-the-blank questions or those that can be answered in just a few seconds.
#2: Share Your Successes
Have a day where you share your successes. Think about something positive that’s happened to your company in the last week.
This could be something big like you just one an award. Or, it could be something small. Tweet about an employee and share one of their successes. For example, “Shari just put the finishing touches on our newest coffee drink and decided to taste it for herself.”
#3: Get Creative with Emojis
There are so many more emojis than simple happy faces and hearts.
Get creative with them as you craft your tweets. Emojis are a language all their own and ones that visually engage readers.
Emojis make your tweets more visually appealing and really drive home your emotions for your Twitter audience.
#4: Share Something Funny
Your followers are interested in what goes on behind the scenes at your business.
Be sure and share funny tweets about your staff and their activities. These could be straight up humor or even funny bloopers.
#5: Tweet the View
Working outside the office? Feel free to tweet about your view. It’s even better if the view is spectacular.
For example, you’re on vacation but still working, tweet a great photo.
#6: Use Inspiration
Inspirational memes are all the rage.
Go ahead and craft one to tweet. Be sure, though, that you know your audience. This is important because you want to share the right kind of inspiration for your target market.
#7: Wish Someone Happy Birthday
This requires that you have some information on your audience. For example, take your customer list and find everyone who has a birthday on a specific day.
Then, go to Twitter and call them out and wish them happy birthday.
#8: Share Interesting Facts
Let’s say you sell hot tubs. Share a tweet that lists interesting facts about the health benefits of soaking in a hot tub.
Then, ask your followers what their favorite benefit is.
#9: Preview a New Product
Tell your followers they’re first to see your new product design.
Share a photo and a few words about it.
#10: Use a Twitter Poll
You’ll increase engagement if you conduct a poll and ask your followers what they think.
Twitter polls engage their curiosity because they want to know what others think as well.
#11: Add a Thank You
Several times each month make sure you give a shout out to your customers and even your staff. Thank them for something they’ve done.
Show your customers and your staff that you appreciate them by thanking them publicly. Make sure the thank you is pertinent and engaging. Go one step further and either include a photo or a thank you video.
Since the half-life of a tweet is just 24 minutes, you have a small window to engage your users.
With these 11 brilliant ideas for unique and engaging tweets, you’re well on your way to creating the best content and new stories.
Don’t forget to look at curating content. Look to publications, organizations, thought leaders, employees, customers and the competition for ideas.
