Here are some steps to follow to make the most of Twitter for your marketing communications.
Listen and observe
Take some time to see how other brands are running their Twitter accounts. Make sure that you monitor your competitors’ activities exclusively. Identify the elements of their Twitter marketing strategy that you like and are useful for your brand. You can find your competitors and monitor relevant conversations using either search.twitter.com (manual search), or if you need a deeper insight, a social listening tool.
Then, when you already know what the rules of your game are, try testing a similar strategy to engage your followers the most. When you do an inspection, do not rush, but be responsive and flexible when something is going wrong. Twitter never sleeps and information is being spread i n blink of an eye.

Treat others the way you want them to be, especially when it comes to your online fast-moving and super responsive customers.

Focus on the first driving interaction – retweet, reply, like, tweet start chat! Then when you feel you’ve built some rapport with your followers, you can try to test direct offers or promotions that invite followers to take action – by clicking on links or buying from your website . “Give, give, give… then ask” is another wise advice from this social media strategy guru. Take both of them seriously.
Let your brand shine
Comprehensive marketing coverage and more media channels involved in your communication, the big challenge to keep your brand image consistent. The name of your Twitter account and the content you post should have the same affinity as your website, Facebook page, blog, and other elements of your online presence.
