Top Ways to Boost Your Twitter Marketing Efforts

By Bernard Perrine CEO & Co-Founder, SocialCentiv | January 31, 2016

With more than 600 million Tweets sent daily, it’s likely your next customer is on Twitter. The challenge for companies is making their Tweets stand out and building their business by capturing a greater share of the growing market using Twitter.

An effective Tweet can boost business by creating the highest engagement with followers, while building a devoted fan base. And while what you say and how you construct a Tweet is important, building an effective Twitter program sets the stage for those all-important 140 characters or less communication. In this article I’ll address ways to create an engaging presence on Twitter, as well as give you tips to make every Tweet count.

Create an Inviting Twitter Profile

Think of your Twitter profile as your welcome mat. Edgy? Fun? Laid back? Upscale? Economy? From the images to the short company description, your profile will tell people who you are and what they can expect from your property. And of course, it should consistent with the overall marketing message. What to consider:

  • Your Twitter handle is important and should be easily identifiable.
  • Similarly, your profile picture should be a snapshot of who you are. These
    are more recognizable than the handle and will be shown as the icon in every
    Tweet you post.

  • You can be creative with your profile photo, making sure to change it up
    often.

Hotel Spa: Oasis Unplugged

The driving force in current hotel spa trends is the effort to manage unprecedented levels of stress experienced by their clients. Feeling increasingly overwhelmed by demanding careers and technology overload, people are craving places where they can go to momentarily escape the rigors of their daily lives. As a result, spas are positioning themselves as oases of unplugged human connection, where mindfulness and contemplation activities are becoming increasingly important. One leading hotel spa offers their clients the option to experience their treatments in total silence - no music, no talking, and no advice from the therapist - just pure unadulterated silence. Another leading hotel spa is working with a reputable medical clinic to develop a “digital detox” initiative, in which clients will be encouraged to unplug from their devices and engage in mindfulness activities to alleviate the stresses of excessive technology use. Similarly, other spas are counseling clients to resist allowing technology to monopolize their lives, and to engage in meditation and gratitude exercises in its place. The goal is to provide clients with a warm, inviting and tranquil sanctuary from the outside world, in addition to also providing genuine solutions for better sleep, proper nutrition, stress management and natural self-care. To accomplish this, some spas are incorporating a variety of new approaches - cryotherapy, Himalayan salt therapy and ayurveda treatments are becoming increasingly popular. Other spas are growing their own herbs and performing their treatments in lush outdoor gardens. Some spa therapists are being trained to assess a client's individual movement patterns to determine the most beneficial treatment specifically for them. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
