Yesterday I talked about how to improve your chances of selling me something on Twitter.
Okay, I get it. You want me do something (read this, buy this, look at this, etc.). But all too often, you don’t tell me what it is, why you chose to post it, or how it would benefit me to do what you want me to do. So, for me, it comes across as yelling.
Please don’t ever just post the link and nothing else. Ever. Unless your only followers are your family and they love you too much to ignore your link.
Who on earth do you think you are and why are you ordering me to do something? Oh yeah, and why should I obey you?
Okay, at least I can decide if it’s something that interests me. Sort of.
In other words, think good writing and news stories, and give me the “who,” “what,” “when,” “where,” “why” and “how” if you actually want me to check out your link.
