Twitter is one of the most valuable tools at your disposal. It’s a social media network with over 170 million unique users on its platform! Of course, this means that there are a lot of posts competing for those users’ attention. So, what does it take to leverage your twitter machine in order to grow your brand and make that sweet, sweet money? Here are some tips!
1. Simplicity is the key to engagement.
Shorter tweets promote the most engagement. According to twitter’s own data, retweets are most frequent with tweets between 71-100 characters. More so, shorter tweets than that generate even more overall engagement (not only retweets, but liking or clicking on any part of your tweet). Of course you don’t want to sacrifice effective communication, but this is something to certainly keep in mind.
2. Make proper use of hashtags.
Twitter is synonymous with the hashtag – a useful tool to help people search for tweets on a given topic. A good use for hashtags in the pornosphere is to tag your posts with relevant fetishized traits, like #bigass, #shavedpussy, or #fingering. Also, don’t just cram as many hashtags into a tweet as you can; while using hashtags roughly doubles engagement, using more than one or two hashtags can actually cause a small drop in the same. Really, it’s all about finding a balance.
3. Tell your audience what it is you want them to do!
Twitter actions aren’t exactly strenuous. You can like, comment, retweet, watch videos, vote on polls, and click on links. So don’t be afraid to ask your followers to engage with a tweet in a specific way. Want them to vote on what you wear in your next show? Tell them to vote! Doing something as simple as adding “please retweet” to your tweet can increase retweets several-fold. Giving people directions makes it less likely that they will simply click through your posts.
4. Include pictures and videos in your tweets.
It’s important to know that tweets featuring pictures and videos are more often engaged. Also, you are literally a model! People following you want to see what you look like, what you’re doing, and where you are. These multimedia tweets can also be advertisements, or even links to your model page, website, or purchasable clips. This will be your bread-and-butter as it promotes you, helps you engage with fans, and attracts new followers. Also, protip: watermark your images!
5. Tweet often and at the right times.
Tweeting every day is important to maintaining your followers. Just as important, of course, is getting them to click on things. To make this happen, you’ll want to develop a fairly regular post schedule. As a general rule, you can feel free to post as often as you like – so long as you have the content to support it. Of course, we’re busy ladies (and gents!) with many important things to do. So with that in mind, research shows that 4-5 tweets per day is the best number to get the most out of your time. Also, tweet engagement waxes and wanes throughout the day along with twitter activity. It can be tricky to find the best time where your audience will engage, but there isn’t as much competition for people’s attention. Feel free to experiment to see what works for you, but a few good times to start with ate 8am, noon, 6pm, and midnight. These are times when engagement is either at its highest, or high enough to matter while competition is less fierce. One cool tool that can help with this, as well as automate a lot of your twitter activity, is Crowdfire. It’s free to use and very useful.
So there you have it! Keep things short and tweet at the right times, with the right hashtags, including the right media, to the right audience, and you’ll find Twitter to be a big help in growing your camgirl brand.
