Welcome to Twitter

Twitter isn’t like either Facebook or Instagram, it is one of those platforms where you can consistently engage with people without fear of being blocked or unfollowed. Whilst twitter doesn’t have the user base of Facebook and Instagram, it is still a valuable tool that you can utilise to increase your business and brand visibility, but how can you easily get noticed on twitter? Don’t worry, we’re here to help.

Tone is Everything

Twitter is slightly more complex than Instagram when it comes to you putting content together. The first thing that you need to consider is your business and brand message. You want to make sure that your audience can understand your tone and intonation when you tweet, and you will need to keep this consistent. Make sure you have a clear idea of how you want to sound to your audience and be clear on your message, but always make sure you sound human! 

Content

Your feed doesn’t need to be as curated as Instagram, but you do need to consider your content releases in the same way. Make sure that all your content has the same high quality feel as anything else you would want to put out and build a buzz around it. You can tease your audience by offering content that works as a promotion for an upcoming release, this will draw more users in and help get you noticed. The higher the quality the more professional you look and the more you can build a buzz around your release the more people are going to want to be involved with your company and your products.

Don’t be afraid to post!

We’re always hearing about the goldilocks time to post on social media, we also hear a lot about the social faux pas of posting too much too often. On Facebook and Instagram, this is entirely possible, especially if you are posting promotional photos constantly to your audience. Twitter moves a lot faster than Instagram and Facebook so you can post more frequently, but you do want to make sure that you keep mixing it up. Don’t just post the link to your website time and time again, ask your followers to interact and have fun with them. The more your posts seem like you are a human and the more you interact the more you will get noticed.

Make The most of retweets

Retweets are an amazing and free way to get you noticed very quickly, especially if you are getting yourself involved in important conversations that your target market and audience are having.  If there is a big event going on or some breaking news that directly relates to you and your business, retweet people that reflect your view and give a commentary you agree on. This can increase the visibility of your profile and you can get noticed from likeminded people and thus increase your following.

Hashtags

We can’t even begin to explain how important hashtags are, they are twitter currency and you need to know how to use them. Make sure that you use ones that directly relate to what you are saying, you don’t want to look like you are just jumping on the bandwagon, and you also want to make sure they are the ones that will get you seen. Look for trending hashtags on a daily basis and see which one you can use to insert yourself into the conversation and get yourself noticed. Utilise big holidays, events, local events and other things that are going on and work yourself into the conversation, it is the easiest and fastest way to get yourself noticed!

Interact 

You can either do this yourself, manually or with the help of a third party such as Twesocial or Tweeteev. But, to be frank, there is little to no point in having a twitter account if you aren’t willing to interact with others. One of the amazing things about twitter is that it can break down the barriers between consumers and businesses. Here is your time to shine! Show customers why they want to buy from you, be funny, smart, witty and attentive. If you treat your customers like they are people and you look like a human rather than a faceless corporation, you will get noticed and people will want to interact with you. 

Final Thoughts


Twitter doesn’t have to be difficult to navigate and as long as you use all the tools correctly, it is super easy to get noticed very quickly. Make sure your interaction and content are always high quality and reflect the mission, values and goals of the business, but you want to show your target market and audience that you are human and have a sense of humour and worth behind your feed. Remember that twitter is fast-moving, and you need to keep on top of it to be remembered by your audience, use the latest hashtags and retweet important items from relevant people and businesses to keep yourself in the conversation.

Making The Most Of Your Garden With The Least Effort

Whether you have a large garden or a small one, time seems to be a factor when it comes to taking care of it. If you want to enjoy the outdoor spaces that adjoin your home, you will have to be prepared to put in a great deal of effort to manage the upkeep of them. With lawns that will need mowing weekly, through to plant beds that need watering and weeding, there is always something in your garden that will keep you busy and eat into your valuable relaxation time. 

If the main purpose of your garden is to relax and socialize, and you don’t feel as though you are able to do that because of the amount of upkeep involved, here are a few tips to help you get the most of your garden for the least amount of effort. 

Keeping Your Lawn In Trim

Your lawn will no doubt need to be mowed every week during the summer months. This can be a massive hassle that nobody wants to deal with. Your lawn is a great space that you should be able to enjoy without having to spend all of your spare time looking after it. There are a couple of options to save you time and effort. Firstly, if you want to keep real grass in your garden, think about having your lawn fully levelled and make sure that all of the edges and flat and straight. This will make running the mower around it a much easier task. When it comes to mowing the lawn, the hardest work is often dealing with difficult corners or uneven patches. 

Another option would be to get artificial grass fitted. Have a look at this astro turf in Basingstoke to see what you can do with your lawn. You won’t ever need to water or mow it, meaning that you will always have perfect-looking grass, whatever the season. 

How To Plant Flowers Without The Effort

If you want flowers and bushes but you don’t want to deal with the weeding, one option for you would be to use planters and line your paths and patios with them. You can move them around easily without the need to dig up the plants inside, and you will find that they are less prone to weeds. If you use mulch around the base of the plants too, this will protect them further. 

Think about planting hardy perennials such as hydrangeas or peonies as these will need less effort when it comes to planting your garden next year. Bushes and topiary can offer a great additional level and provide colour too. 

Making Your Garden Space Perfect For Socializing

If you want to host BBQs with friends and family, then you will want a patio or decked area set up. Decking can be easily maintained and will make your garden space ready to use when it comes to outdoor socializing season. Just add garden furniture, and line the edges with planters.
