Is it time for you join Twitter? We think so. The perks of joining the Internet’s unfolding sensation are growing by an average of 460,000 new users a day.
The hyper-expansive site has had people buzzing about its capabilities since its inception, and the advantages of creating a Twitter account today will benefit you and your company.
So, are you ready to put your best 140 characters forward? We’ve compiled five reasons for businesses and individuals to take advantage of the Internet’s latest boom.
1. Greater Customer Support
Twitter has emerged as a powerful tool for businesses and consumers alike. While its services offer unique benefits for businesses and lively engagement for their followers, it can also act as a unique method for companies to effectively enhance their customer support. If a consumer voices a need for support, a business can instantly contribute a solution via Twitter. Employing Twitter’s services can change a damaging PR situation into a positive story that will ultimately increase a customer’s satisfaction.
Likewise, are you the one with a problem? Use your Twitter! Companies are always searching their brand’s name, and even if you don’t use a hash tag (ie. ‘#’, which collects tweets under the same word), businesses can still find and reach out to a customer in need.
2. Spread your word!
Your tweets and profile are public, transferable, and ultimately encourage ‘word of mouth’ action. Tweets are limited to 140 characters, which forces the Twitter community to broadcast only the core of an idea. Although succinct, this allows for a quick transmission of information to large audiences. Many tweets also contain links, which can be used to instantly spread your product, message, or opinion across the web.
3. Customize your news and be the FIRST to know
Regardless of what your views or profession may be, the news sources that align with your interests are on Twitter. By “following’ (ie. Having their articles sent to your Twitter’s “news-feed”), you can be the first to receive the most up to date and relevant information. Here at Nurenu, we follow numerous tech blogs that give us the latest information on the best strategies for making technology work for us.
Also, if you’re one to gobble news and entertainment, Twitter can allow you to have a less biased and cumulative look into what is happening by following multiple news organizations. It’s easy to fall into the ultimate tones and beliefs of one news source: Twitter allows users to hear different interpretations on the most relevant issues.
4. Network, Network, Network
Follow like-minded people and easily hear their ideas, read their material, and acclimate yourself to how any industry is behaving. If you have a similar business – make a new friend! It’s simplified, brief, and an enormous networking opportunity.
5. Change Your Business’ Dynamic
A business can instantly react to market conditions and inform potential customers of their services. More so, Twitter can help you brainstorm among your employees or colleagues if you all use the same hash tag.
For instance – you tweet:
“Hey! I need help with coming up with marketing ideas… any thoughts? #Nurenuideas”
And I tweet:
“Use twitter! Read our new blog post on the benefits of Twitter! https://nurenu.com/blog/?p=400#Nurenuideas”
