Twitter has changed the social media landscape in a number of significant ways. In addition to making social interactions easier than ever, the business world has been substantially impacted by this social media network.

We asked four entrepreneurs about how their business approach was to Twitter evolution over time. Check out their answers below:

Understand the Channel First

Understanding the value of each social channel is key to utilizing them effectively. It’s a PR tool and should always be treated as a place where your peers and media outlets live. We’ve changed our approach over the years to define ourselves as industry experts in our field and use Twitter to share accolades and results for our clients as well as new business.

– Nick Francis of The Franchise Group

Post Content of Interest to Your Users

Early on, a lot of our focus on Twitter was “Hey, look at what we’re doing!” But we realized people rarely engaged with “all about us” company posts. We started to mix it up by posting interesting articles about our industry, asking questions and telling jokes in addition to company updates and driving sales. We took it from being a feed that was basically an ad to a feed people want to follow.

Use It for Research

As a marketing company, we use Twitter to find information very quickly. It is one of the fastest ways to keep your finger on the pulse in specific subjects/industries. This generates both knowledge and content. The hashtag is a powerful tool, not necessarily to “gain more followers” but to find relevant, interesting news, latest studies, trends, influencers, etc.

Interact With Others

I interact with people a great deal more than I used to. I actively reach out to followers, respond to any questions directed my way, and direct tweets involving industry news at colleagues I believe will find it interesting.
