The new Twitter features will allow you to promote your business better than before. The fact that Twitter has now become more visual and similar to it’s biggest competitors show that they mean business. If you think the new Twitter layout will bring you business just because you are using all of it’s new features, think again. Here are a few tips to help you maximise your new Twitter profile to maximise sales.

It may seem obvious, but you will need to make sure your profile has all the new features. At the moment, it is just optional however, this will change so make sure you have your new images ready for the update.

3. Change Your Content Strategy

With the new updates from Twitter, you will need to change your content strategy. Images are now more prominent and you will need to adapt to this change.

4. Know What Your Customers Want From You

Not just for Twitter but every other network too. If you don’t know what your customers expect from you online, you won’t be able to utilise the new features.

 Twitter want you to be able to communicate with your customers in the hope of increasing your sales so remember the above tips to help you master your new Twitter profile!
