In addition, Marko says that business owners can know which of their strategies is working and which isn’t by checking analytics.

In this article, Marko also discusses the process of setting up a Twitter business profile. He says that the first step business owners need to take for Twitter marketing is to set up their business profile. He further mentions that the five vital parts of a Twitter business profile should work together effectively. According to him, those five parts are the Twitter handle, profile picture, bio, header image, and pinned tweet.

The Twitter handle is the user identifier on the network. It can be created with up to 15 characters. Marko also mentions that there are 160 characters allotted to describe important business information for bio. He says that it has to be full of information and concise. As for the profile photo, Marko says that it has to represent the brand and the business, so it should include a logo. He adds that the header image should be placed behind the profile picture. Moreover, he says that it can be used to highlight events, news about the business, and promotions.

Marko says that using hashtags can certainly help in making a good business experience. They can help in driving traffic as well, according to Marko. He adds that these are words that let users tag identifying words that group a lot of tweets together. Furthermore, Marko says that hashtags are useful for events. Trending topics are also easily searched by using them.

Marko also discusses handling problems by using direct messages. He says that this is a good business tactic for resolving customer issues. He says that if business owners argue publicly, it can lessen their credibility. That’s the reason why business owners have to resolve issues through the direct message function.

“The best way to send an announcement, interact with followers, and promote business is through live tweeting,” Marko asserts. He adds that it’s a good way to make a topic trend. Furthermore, he mentions that business owners should make sure to create their own hashtag to use when planning for a live tweet.

Marko also warns business owners to never buy followers. He says to never imitate brands that purchase followers from other services to boost their follower count. He says that business owners will only get fake followers if they buy followers. He further says that these followers will not be able to engage.
