Most Popular Ways to Get More Likes From Twitter Post l Alwaysviral
1. Tweet More (but not too much).
There is a fine line between tweeting too often and tweeting too little. You need to find that sweet spot that keeps people engaged and interested. This is also relative to the content you have available.
Don’t be shy to retweet, share breaking news, interesting articles and important statistics. CoSchedule states that between three and seven tweets a day is a healthy number.
2. Timing is Key (know your audience).
Know when your audience is active online. Keep your main engagement to weekends in the morning and afternoon, giving lunchtime a miss.
Don’t stress over live tweeting and schedule your content in advance – unless a breaking time-sensitive news event happens.
3. Post More Visual Content.
As you probably know, tweets containing visual content receive more likes, shares, and retweets than those without them.
As such, brands should strive to couple their tweets with some sort of accompanying image. Although there’s nothing inherently wrong with solely text-based tweets, images are better poised to stop serial scrollers and encourage them to take a look at your post.
Even something as simple as a colorful blog post preview like this one from Slack can do the trick: Coupling your tweets with GIFs or memes has become common practice, as illustrated by Beardbrand: Meanwhile, infographics are shared three times more often than any other type of image on Twitter. If you’ve got some compelling data to share with the world, go for it. Here’s a great example from Forbes:
And signaling the strength of video content marketing, this medium is six times more likely to be shared than a typical text-based tweet. Quick-how-to’s and listicle videos like this one from Hubspot are all the rage right now: Whether you’re looking to inform or entertain your audience (or both), filling your feed with visual content can help bring new followers into the fold.
4. Hire A Dedicated Twitter Manager.
Once you’re past the testing and experimenting stage with social media then it’s time to get a full-time person dedicated to Twitter.
Think that sounds crazy?
You’re probably not ready for big-time success on Twitter.
It seems weird because social media is still relatively new, but there is a lot of effort that goes into really getting incredible engagement on the channel.
You can probably do just fine with a person that isn’t fully dedicated. Other tips in this post will still help, but look at how serious you are about Twitter success and look to hire a full-time person to really dive in and build the audience you have to something that can bring not only engagement but sales.
5. Reply Promptly To Questions.
Research shows that 60% of users expect brands to answer customer questions within an hour. It takes more than a prompt reply though, to become a brand superstar on Twitter. Good customer service is also a must.
In fact, 76% of users are likely to recommend brands they’ve received friendly customer service from. Whether answering queries or pacifying angry customers, replying to them is an effective way of turning casual customers into loyal ones. Her order might be late, but at least the reply from the customer service was prompt.
In fact, if you’re truly concerned about gaining more Likes, consider buying Twitter Likes. Don’t just buy any kind though. Make sure you buy high-quality followers that look and behave like real people. They don’t compromise your reputation.
When you’ve got a high follower count, people will want to follow you and you’ll be able to grow your organic followers fast. How important is attracting more Twitter followers? Your followers can actually bring in revenue. Statistics say that over 67% of users are likely to purchase from brands they follow. How’s that for direct benefits?
6. Engage by Tagging, Replying and Retweeting (no reward without effort).
Make the most of your time online by building networks. Give your Twitter account a personable nature by retweeting, tagging and engaging with your users to let them know that you are human.
Compliment and banter with other brands, making you look involved with your industry.
7. Quit Other Social Channels.
This is one I’ve mentioned in other posts about success on social media. Twitter has really become the channel I use the most for social media marketing and really even for subscribing to other Twitter accounts for business and personal information.
Back when I worked in the corporate world, social media was pretty new. I think it still is in many ways. One of the things with social media was that business owners and managers wanted to test out social media. So usually one person would spend part of their time working on social media. And they would work on multiple social channels.
8. Don’t Use Question Marks.
You should never use a question mark in a tweet with links to your websites or campaigns. A study conducted by a content marketing company Compendium reveals question marks greatly reduce clickthroughs in tweets. Tweets with question marks get 25 to 52% fewer clicks than posts without.
