3 Tips: Going Viral with Twitter to Boost Contractor Leads

Twitter is a great social media tool to boost contractor leads, especially when you know how to go viral.

If you don’t have a Twitter account, stop what you’re doing, go to www.twitter.com, and create one. Twitter is a great social media tool to help you boost your contractor leads by creating a ‘following’ of individuals who are interested in what you have to say and share. Hopefully, they like what you have to say so much so that they’re willing to re-tweet your message!

To boost the chances of your Tweets going viral, considering the following:

Use Links

In a survey by Dan Zarella, the results showed that almost 70% of Tweets with a link were re-tweeted, so be sure to include a relevant link within your Tweets if you want to get optimal results with re-tweets. You want to avoid being in that bottom 30%.

Add Value

Surveys and observation show that people want to read content that adds value, so share how-to information, newsworthy events and tips, promotions, and so on that your target audience and followers will like and share to boost contractor leads.

Time of Day Matters

In the same survey by Dan Zarella mentioned above, the results found that Monday-Wednesday were the days with the most re-tweets when compared to Thursday or Friday, and Tweets posted between the hours of 9am and 6pm experienced the most re-tweets.

If you want an avenue to boost contractor leads for your business, then Twitter is a viable option to include as part of your social media arsenal.

Take these items into consideration on a consistent basis to get the most out of your Twitter account starting now.
