Twitter, as we all know, is one of the biggest social networks of our time. With 328 million monthly active users, Twitter is truly a social media giant. It’s an awesome platform to know what’s trending around the globe and be a part of ‘the conversation.’
We use Twitter to interact with one another, have conversations, share recent news, give our two cents on what’s trending and of course, share funny memes.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR MY BUSINESS?
There is enormous potential to generate new leads and visitors to your store, website, and blog via Twitter. Did you know that around 65.8% of all US companies have a Twitter account and are already leveraging the power of this social media giant? More and more brands are realizing the one-to-one engagement opportunity on Twitter and are discovering ways to take advantage of it.
Customers love meeting brands through Twitter. Here are some stats that will blow your Twitter mind:
- Did you know 66% of Twitter users have discovered a new small or medium business (SMB) on Twitter?
- A shocking 94 percent plan to purchase from the SMBs they follow. Amazingly, 69 percent have already purchased from an SMB because of something they saw on the platform. To say customers love brands on Twitter would be an understatement!
If you weren’t aware, Twitter is a great platform to provide awesome customer service. Twitter users send more than 100,000 questions, complaints, and comments to major American airlines every month! Providing a quick and helpful reply to your customers can result in positive word-of-mouth referrals and eventually lead to more sales.
Apart from engaging with customers on the platform, Twitter is a powerful way to direct your Twitter fans to your blog, website, store, or other social media profiles. But there’s one small problem…
YOU HAVE SPACE FOR ONLY ONE LINK IN YOUR TWITTER BIO!
Your Twitter bio link is the single most important part of your Twitter profile. The first thing anyone notices when they land on your Twitter account is your Twitter bio.
Your Twitter bio is where you get the opportunity to tell your story and entice visitors into following you and hopefully convert by directing them to your blog/website.
However, Twitter’s hard-and-fast rule about allowing only a single link in the bio is something everyone has loathed about since the inception of the social network.
A SINGLE BIO LINK? ARE YOU KIDDING ME!
- Divert their Twitter traffic to their blog or websites
- Promote their other social media accounts
- Add links to their latest blog posts
- Add links to their e-commerce store
- Add links to an e-book or white paper they are giving away
It’s frustrating, going back to your Twitter bio and swapping out links according to your latest blog post. And after 11 years of its inception, we surely are not holding our breath for Twitter to change that anytime soon.
SO THAT’S IT? I’M STUCK WITH ONE LINK?!
Well, yes..you are. Or you can use our clever workaround which allows you to have multiple clickable links in your Twitter bio instead of just one! Curious?
