Twitter: Social Platform Where Brevity is Premium
A dynamic presence in the social media helps develop a strong online reputation for your business. In 140 characters or less, you can reach a large number of potential consumers from a single post. While this platform is simple in comparison to other methods, it has become one of the most popular and efficient methods to network online.
By the end of 2015’s first quarter, there were approximately 302 million active users on Twitter, including celebrities, politicians, business leaders, as well as millions of potential customers. As anyone can join in conversations connected to hashtags, your business can have increased exposure by contributing to this network. A single post has the potential to reach thousands of people in a matter of a few minutes.
Although Twitter only allows a small number of characters for each post, you can still take advantage of generating traffic to your website by including links that have been shortened. There are services that can do this for you, allowing you to put more engaging content in your tweets along with the link.
Online reputation is important to cultivate in your local community. By interacting with others on social media, you help boost your image as an organization that engages its customers and the wider public. If people are comfortable with your posts on Twitter, and trust the voice of authority and knowledge infused in your website content, consumers are likely to trust the products and services you offer.
