While I was reviewing Twitter's recommended best practices to increase reputation and customer's trust (I'll write about it later on), it occurred to me that it would be great to list some ideas to promote your profile:
- Publicize your Twitter URL to your fans and share it when you talk about Twitter.
- Make sure your full name, bio and key words are filled out in your profile, in order for your account to appear in Twitter search results. Twitter explains that it may take 1-2 days for any change to affect search results.
- Stay active: tweet, retweet and mention regularly to gain resonance amongst your followers.
- Create a List (or many) with some of the Twitter accounts you most like to follow. It will give your fans a taste of what you love on Twiiter, and it will allow allow you to cross-promote other accounts - including your friends or partners.
Make sure you include the term #WelcomeToTwitter in the description of the list. This "Warm Sign UP" feature lets the Twitter system know to present it to new users when they sign-up specifically through your URL.
On this page you should see users that are on the list you just created.
