Tips For Twitter Hours
Below are our three key tips for success on a local Lancashire Twitter hour.
- Be Social – The whole idea behind these hours is to connect with other locals on Twitter. Therefore, be social. Get involved and chat to other users that are present during the hour. Like any conversation have topics at hand to keep the conversation flowing. Ask users about their week, ask them about their business and find out where they are based in Lancashire. All perfect conversation starters.
- Help Others – Many businesses in Lancashire use these Twitter hours to promote their business, products or services. Help them out! Retweet their updates, put them in touch with others who may need their services and follow their profile. Help others on Twitter and they will return the favour.
- Don’t Automate – People are intelligent and can tell if an account is automated and targeting a Twitter hour. Put the effort in and be present during these hours. Tweet on the go and communicate in real-time. Nothing screams disinterest more than automating tweets to hit these hours.
