You sometimes can get stuck for ideas of what to tweet on your business twitter account. We’ve all been there.

Tweet prompts for your business twitter account.

So, now I’m going to elaborate on each of these prompts with a few ideas of different things that could work well.

A – Ask your followers a question.

Something social like ‘What’s for lunch’ can work well, or something business-related like ‘which social media channel works best for you?’

Just be ready to like and reply to any responses that you get. It’s always good to get a conversation going on your twitter account and to build a relationship with your followers.

B – Behind the scenes action

This could be a tour of the office, a ‘how it’s made’ style post, a picture of the staff room, etc., the possibilities depend on your business.

C – Chime in on popular culture

Tweet about popular films, TV shows, music, celebrities or anything like this that could relate to your business. For example, if you bake cakes, tweeting about the Great British Bake Off could bring new interested followers to your account.

D – Display your recent work

If you, or your business as a whole, have recently done some great work share it on your account. It’s a great way to promote what you do.

E – Engage with and comment on tweets

Retweet interesting tweets with a comment relating it back to your business. Retweeting with a comment ensures your image and your twitter account is visible.

F – Fun Stuff

Share riddle’s, a quiz, or games to boost engagement. Try to make them relevant to your business and your brand.

G – Giveaways, contests, and promotions

This can boost engagement and bring new followers to your account.

H – Hashtags

Don’t forget to regularly check the trending hashtags and think of something relevant to say.

I – Inspirational

Inspirational images, quotes, ideas, and stories can really capture people’s interest. A lot of people can relate to this type of content.

J – Jokes

Joke around with funny GIF’s, images, or stories that you have to share. Everyone likes to laugh, so as long as it works for your brand and you’re not likely to offend your core customers.

K – Knowledge is power

Share something you have learnt at your business. Share your wisdom or how you complete a particular task. Exhibiting your knowledge will help customers build trust in your business.

L – Live tweeting

This is more popular on personal twitter accounts but if there is something fun and relevant that you can live tweet then it will bring value to your audience. It could be a TV show, a cultural event, a business event, or even something like your office’s charity chilli eating competition (although for the last one I’d prefer to see a video!)

M – More about you

Mystery is not always the best thing for your business. Gain greater trust and authenticity by sharing more about your business… this would be things like why did it start, where did it all begin, what is your stance on X, who works there, what are the team’s like, and other things like this. Share all about your business and the people who work there.

N – News!

Share and comment on the big news. Just shy away from anything too political or divisive, unless that represents your brand.

O – Other people’s content!

Never claim it as your own. But, if you come across a piece of great content that will be of value to your followers, be sure to share it with a comment.

P – Poll

Put together a quick poll. Followers tend to engage with these and the results can be interesting.

Q – Quick tips

Tweet a quick tip relating to your business. I personally like to do a quick bullet-pointed list of quick and simple tips. This is just another way of adding value to your followers.

R – Recommendation

Share the love! Tweet about your favourite websites, tools, blogs, influencers, businesses and more. So long as it is relevant to your audience and you aren’t promoting your direct competitors, of course.

S – Social on social

Occasionally it is worthwhile sharing your other social media accounts too.

T – Testimonials and reviews

Posting these is a great way to highlight the successes of your business.

U – Update with blogs

Don’t forget to update your followers on your blog posts, both new and old. As long as it is still relevant, interesting or useful to your audience, don’t be afraid of sharing old content.

V – Video content

You can’t escape the chatter of how big video marketing is going to become, so get ahead with a little bit of video content. You could try a relevant vlog, a quick explainer video, a product video, or anything that will bring value to your followers.

W – Website pages

When in doubt just share your website! Share your about page with a relevant tweet. Or, just highlight something on the home page.

X – X-hibit your products or services.

Right, don’t start. I know ‘x-hibit’ isn’t a real word. But, I needed to make the X relevant and also get in this great tweeting prompt. Tweeting every so often about one of your products or services can highlight different features of your business to your customers.

Y – Your personal experience

Yes, you, social media person! It’s time to share a little bit about who you are, your likes, your dislikes, and other stuff like this.

Z – Zone into your zone

Tweet about where your business is located and what is happening locally to you. You can add a relatable element to your tweets which appeals to customers.
