Quick question for all of you? Do you want to increase your reach on Twitter? If not, you can read this anyways. So after doing a couple of hours of reasech online about Twitter I have come up with this article.
Twitter is a massive tool and you can become a branding powerhouse if you can use it right. There is no if ands about it. But if your thinking that hashtagging the crap out of a tweet or two? Your WRONG to do that and here is a few reasons why? ..
- You look unprofessional with to many hashtags
- You are most likely spamming Twitter
- No one cares and you have 140 characters so use them wisely
Now I am not going to lie to you I have be using the bad tactic of spamming Twitter with hashtags, until today! It all kind of changed for me. I sent out a tweet earlier in the day and I mean within 1 minute it got a retweet. Not a heart but a retweet I am not fond of hearting tweets. But the larger picture here is that I was able to reach 20 more impressions with a retweet and that is what social media is about BRANDING!
So here is the point I want to make less is more .. it really is, keep your hashtags down to 2 a tweet and make your tweets something to remember .. But I will talk about that later.
