5 Ways to Use Twitter for Prospecting

Enter your Email Address

This is just a quick post about prospecting on Twitter.  I came across this list from my buddy James Pollard…

1. Find your target market. 

Use Twitter’s search function to follow anyone who matches your ideal client profile.
You can even follow your competitors and look at who they’re following to get an idea of what they’re doing.

2. Follow – and engage with – publications in your area. 

Because financial advisors are often restricted to a geographic region, a great strategy is to engage with some local magazines, blogs, radio shows, etc.

(That one tip alone is pure gold. I can’t believe I just gave it away for free…)

3. Put your niche in your bio. 

Make it clear to other people WHAT you do and WHO you help. Those two things should be obvious to anyone looking at your profile. Otherwise, you’re just wasting your time.

4. Use images in your tweets. 

According to HubSpot, tweets with images are 34% more likely to get retweeted than posts with no photos at all.

Photos capture people’s attention and add more context to your tweets.

5. Link back to your website. 

Including links to your website is a great way for your audience to learn more about you and what you do.

Plus, according to Postcron (a social media scheduler), tweets with a URL have a 26% greater chance of being shared. Don’t be afraid to use LinkedIn to boost your website’s traffic.
