Here’s your social selling tip of the day for April 25, 2017. I’m Greg Hyer of Linking into Sales.
Let’s face it, Twitter has had a tough time with Wall Street over the past year. You know who doesn’t care? The 313 Million monthly active users.
When someone follows you on Twitter, what should you do? Ignore them? No. Here are three things you should do when someone follows you on Twitter.
- Review their full profile. There’s not a lot of information in a user’s Twitter profile. But what they include can help you find them in other social networks like LinkedIn and Facebook. For example, if they have a link to their blog, there’s a good chance their blog will lead you to their other social profiles.
- Review their tweets. Most Twitter users are sharing content and engaging with other users. This is very helpful for determining how you can successfully engage with this person, if they are worth engaging with.
- Reply with a Thank you. Don’t follow just yet. If this is someone you think you might follow back see if they engage with your reply thanking them for the follow. If you get a reply or a fave, it might be a good idea to reciprocate the follow.
What you do after this point is up to you. My recommendation would be to build the relationship. We can talk more about that later.
