Growing a Twitter Audience for Businesses


One of the most important metrics that all businesses should be keeping track of on Twitter is the number of impressions that their content generates. The Twitter Impressions give companies a better understanding of how many people they’ve managed to reach with a single piece of content, especially if that metric is then combined with other ones. In fact, companies that are looking to grow their businesses need to care about the number of people they’ve managed to reach over a specific period of time, and the best way to do that is through brand presence, which can be measured from Twitter impressions.


One of the best ways companies can grow their Twitter audience is by being consistent in sharing content on the platform. After all, this is the best strategy for any sort of communication channel that a company decides to use because sharing content is how companies get others to become interested in the brand and its solutions. Although most companies prefer to focus on content that’s related to their brand, it’s a lot more important for businesses to share content that’s not related to themselves, such as industry updates or educational content. To achieve the best possible results, companies will have to learn more about the target audience by conducting audience research first, to understand what they enjoy, the types of content they engage with, and more. Once a company figures out what its audiences want to see, it can start creating and distributing that type of content on the platform, but it’s important to do that consistently to keep people coming back without forgetting about the business at any point.


The hashtags that companies can use on Twitter are incredibly important in terms of the discoverability of their content. That means every business that wants to grow its Twitter audience will have to figure out which hashtags are going to be beneficial and useful to achieve that goal and start utilizing them in the tweets. Using hashtags in the right way can help companies reach brand new audiences of potential consumers as many users on the platform search for specific hashtags. When the company’s content starts showing up in the search results of those relevant hashtags, the company can both increase the number of people that it reaches with its content – Twitter impressions – as well as its audience. There are a number of tools that companies can use to figure out which hashtags are popular with consumers or other businesses in the industry, overall popular hashtags during specific times of day or year, and more, to figure out which hashtags will work best for them and their goals.
