How To Be Relevant On Twitter Without The Help Of Influencers

first_imgThe Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Related Posts muhammad yasin Being relevant on Twitter is a multi-step process and it takes time to gain traction organically. Unlike the immediate exposure you can receive by leveraging an existing influencer, the organic approach can sometimes feel like shouting in the woods. However, once your account finally “pops,” the results can be dramatic. Best of all, you – not the influencer – fully own your brand’s network and can reap the benefits. A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Guest author Muhammad Yasin is the marketing director at HCC Medical Insurance Services and the co-author of Nothing New: An Irreverent History of Storytelling and Social Media.There’s a gold rush going on – online marketers are frantically searching for influencers to share their content through social media platforms like Twitter. The idea is that the influencer’s seal-of-approval can make all the difference in how consumers view a product or piece of content.But influencer endorsements are not the only way to achieve relevance on Twitter:1. Edit Your Content RuthlesslyWith thousands upon thousands of brands to follow on Twitter, why should someone pay attention to your brand instead of the competition? The content you create has to be worthy of their time.Think quality over quantity: instead of posting multiple times a day with content that may not relate to your consumers, make sure that everything you post is interesting to the people who should be following you. This doesn’t mean you should post only once a day, but don’t stretch to meet an arbitrary production number by padding your account with sub-par social shares. Research your target market obsessively and base your content on exactly what they find interesting2. Be On TimeProducing great content also means making sure it is timely. Focus on saying the right thing at the right time. I once had a colleague who wrote an amazing blog post on dog sledding. Problem, it was in the middle of a summer heat wave. I filed away this post, and her accompanying tweets, and waited until December to post them. Staying timely can be as simple as creating a high-level editorial plan mapping out what topics to discuss each week or month.Being timely also means keeping up up with conversation trends. If everyone on Twitter is talking about a hot new TV show, you need to weigh in with related content before they move on to another topic.(See also New ‘Social’ Businesses Want To Know All About You: No Thanks!3. Don’t Be A Stick In The MudYour business is not a bland, faceless entity, and neither are you! Let your Twitter account reflect some personality. At its core, Twitter is about being social. Even people following brands want to feel like they are interacting with a person, not a machine. Engage users and carry on conversations. Develop relationships with followers in the same way that you would nurture a face-to-face business relationship. I reached out to my Twitter network and received a really interesting response: Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Tags:#twitter last_img read more

Any Problem You Repeatedly Experience Means You Are the Problem

first_imgYou call your dream client and say, “I’d love to stop by and introduce myself, tell you a little about my company and how we are helping companies like yours, and learn a little about you and your business.” The approach you use to schedule a meeting doesn’t produce anything close to the result you need. Yet, you continue to use it.Your dream client has asked you to send them a proposal and pricing. You write an excellent email, including the proposal they requested and your pricing. You expected them to respond to the email, but it’s been two weeks, and you have heard nothing. In fact, of the ten proposals you’ve sent by email, none of them have ever gotten back to you. Yet, you still email the proposal and pricing.Last year you didn’t produce the results you wanted. You didn’t do the prospecting you needed to through the first part of the year and fell behind. You were unable to make up the lost time, a pattern you have repeated more than once. It’s almost February, and this January looks a lot like last January.Your current sales process, when followed perfectly, results in a win rate of 28%. The salespeople change over time, but the win rate doesn’t improve or decline very much. The process has been in place so long that no one ever questions whether it still serves the company.Experiencing the same challenge over and over without changing your approach makes the failure to achieve the result solely your fault.If your experience tells you that your language choice and the value you offer to trade in exchange for a meeting isn’t compelling enough to get a “yes,” your resistance to changing your approach will ensure you continue to create that challenge.When sending your proposal and pricing by email causes your prospective clients to go dark, adhering to the client’s request is proven to be a bad sales practice. The blame here lies in your unwillingness to confront your prospective client, explaining how this approach doesn’t serve them.The lack of disciplined prospecting is a similar choice. You know with an enormous amount of certainty that you cannot make up for lost time when it comes to creating and winning opportunities. If perfect execution gets you a 28% win rate, it might be time to look at the process to determine whether it still serves you.If you repeatedly experience the same problem, you can anticipate that problem and develop a strategy to eliminate it.There is no reason not to say, “I am happy to send you the pricing and proposal. Before I do, I need to walk you and your team through both to make sure it’s perfect. What’s the best time this week to have that meeting?” When you hear, “Can you just send it to us, we’re swamped,” you say, “I am afraid I wouldn’t be taking care of you if I did that. You are going to have questions and concerns, and just like when you are a customer, I’ll be here to make sure you have everything you need. I promise I won’t waste your time. You say when, and I’ll put a 30-minute meeting on my calendar.”last_img read more

first_imgAtlas Jewellery, which has been in the headlines recently following the arrest of its founder M M Ramachandran for defaulting on repayment of loans worth over Rs 900 crore, is scheduled to hold an annual general meeting on 28 September.The AGM will see a ‘special notice’ to expel members Lukoo Sugunan Madathiparambil and Ajith Kovooril Muraleedharan from the board of directors. The move comes after Madathiparambil and Muraleedharan alleged that their appointment to the board happened “without their knowledge”. Both of them said that “they were just small-time employees”.Madathiparambil was just a Class X pass out carrying out small-time administrative work at Atlas Jewellery while Muraleedharan’s educational qualification was just Plus-II, Indian Express reported. The company had claimed that Muraleedharan possessed a graduate degree in IT with over six years of experience.Atlas Jewellery has decided to replace the duo with Supratik Chatterjee and Sunil Pant. While Chatterjee has more than 36 years of experience in banking and held various positions at top public sector banks in India, Pant has over 37 years of experience in banking sector. In the recent post he held, Pant worked as the chief general manager of SBI at its corporate office in Mumbai.The company took back its decision to re-appoint Shrirang Vasant Khadilkar as a non-executive independent director following his recent resignation from the board.Surprisingly, the AGM notice to shareholders did not mention anything about the arrest of Ramachandran and the debt he owes to banks.last_img read more
