6 Twitter Tips for a Home Dropshipping Business

twitter bird white on blueSocial media marketing is a great way to build and grow your home dropshipping business, so you might be able to put a few Twitter tips to good use.

Most ecommerce business people feel that of all the social sites, there are a few that stand out as far as their worth in building your brand and increasing sales. Twitter is always in the top of that group, along with the inevitable Facebook. Hundreds of millions of people use Twitter and is you go about it right, you can connect with some of those people and gain new customers for your home dropshipping business.

So, without further ado, here are some useful Twitter tips:

  • Whenever you will be adding a new product to your virtual shelves, use Twitter to build interest and excitement about weeks in advance of its launch. This is a great time to get people interested in at least looking at your new product and then hopefully buying it, by having promotions that feature it in some way. You may even consider having a contest or giveaway of the brand new product.

  • A smart way to get retweeted is to have a good freebie and give it away to followers only after they have retweeted your post X amount of times. You might even keep the freebie or promotion or free coupon or whatever you’re offering secret, unlocking and revealing it to the follower once he or she has retweeted the required number of times. This is sort of fun and builds suspense.

  • Use Vine, a new mobile app being used with iOS and Android that allows you to create short looping videos that can be shared on face book and Twitter. You can use this app to show promotional or marketing videos, showcase new products, have contests and all kinds of neat things. Remember---online users love videos!

  • Say thank you. Express your appreciation of your followers who retweet your posts, tweet about you and/or are loyal brand advocates. You might be surprised what an impact a simple “thank you” can have on others. Letting people who are helping you know that you acknowledge and appreciate their help will go a long way toward building a strong following on Twitter and building your home dropshipping business, too, in the process.

  • Consider advertising on Twitter. You can use Promoted Tweets or a Promoted Account. Twitter calls this their self service form of advertising. Straight from Twitter: “You’ll only be charged when people follow your Promoted Account or retweet, reply, favorite or click on your Promoted Tweets. You’ll never be charged for your organic activity on Twitter. There’s no monthly fee and you set your maximum daily budget.”

  • Don’t overlook the use of Twitter tools that can be a huge help in your social media marketing efforts. There are some great tools that are worth giving a try.
