10 Uses of Twitter (Now X) to Promote Your Business - iPay88

You may consider that one social media account should suffice for your business. To be honest, this is not the right attitude in today’s ever-changing world.

The secret of attracting more people, generating more sales leads, and raising your brand awareness actually lies within being seen everywhere.

And by everywhere, I mean everywhere. Different social media platforms have different audiences and serve different purposes.

Long ago, Twitter managed to make a name as one of the most influential social media in internet history, competing against the likes of Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and more.

After a lot happened, Twitter rebranded itself and became X in 2023, led by the automotive brand Tesla’s father, Elon Musk after the acquisition at $44 billion.

So, if you are on Facebook, it’s a good start to consider adopting X, Instagram, Google+, and maybe even Pinterest and YouTube for your business.

Using Twitter (now X) to promote your business

Many big businesses, such as AirAsia, RapidKL, Malaysia Airlines, Uber Malaysia, etc., use X to connect with their customers.

X is a great tool to respond to questions or concerns of your customers.

Many people tend to tweet about good service that they received, thus this is positive feedback for you that you can also address and acknowledge.

On another note, it is also a faster way to resolve issues with your customers and update them on solutions.

Become an expert in your field

Many brands have used X for self-promotion. Many people actually tweet their thoughts, interesting stuff discovered online, news, etc. Therefore, X has become a great platform to promote your business and become an expert within your field.

By gaining momentum within the field, you will be more noticed and cited, and your brand will grow.

Share what you’re up to

This is where X can come in handy.

If you take part in many events, you may not want to overwhelm your Facebook followers with numerous posts, however, you should totally use X and tweet about the event, and the main messages that you retain and want to share.

This will boost your brand, as a business that’s active in events, is better perceived and seems to be more reputable.

X may be seen as somewhat limited, as a user can only write a message of 140 characters.

Therefore, preparations and in general planning for Post (formerly known as Tweets) shouldn’t take too much time, as the message that you would send is very short and concise, compared to any other social media networks, where extensive planning might be needed.
