Twitter tips for your travel blogs
1. Select a good handle
Choosing a good Twitter handle is crucial but difficult. You must use a handle which itself tells you about your job. For a Twitter handle, you have to create a username that is less than 16 characters. But this is not easy; most of the handers are always taken. For common names, you barely get a handle for your name. So, try to create a username that is unique and tells you about your profile like @travelwith(your name). You may have to try several names to find a perfect Twitter handle. Before finalizing it, check the handle on other social media like Instagram. Create a username that you can use on every social media. When you have the same handle, people can find it easily. If anyone finds your Twitter profile helpful, he may search you on Instagram.
2. Optimize Your Profile
Just creating a Twitter account and sharing blogs is not helpful. You need to create a profile that can tell more about you. People won’t follow you if you don’t have a good Twitter profile. After making your Twitter profile, go to the profile. Click on your Edit Profile button and start adding the information. Use a good profile picture of yours with a smile. It should look welcoming and friendly. Now add a header image. As a traveler, you may have lots of photos of several places. For a header image, use a high-quality image in the landscape. Don’t use a portrait as it won’t fit correctly. Never add someone else’s photo to your profile. Use a photo that you owned. Now add a short bio about you. Places you have visited or your upcoming tours. Also add some other details like your city and your interests like travel, blogging, food, photography, etc. Add a website link so people can check more about your traveling blogs.
3. Add photos to your tweet
On Twitter, you can write something and just tweet it. But reading tweets is boring and people barely take interest in reading them. When you add a photograph, it tells people about your work. While creating a tweet, add a related photo. Use a photo you owned. If you don’t have a good photo, you can add other people’s photos but always get permission. Or, search for copyright-free photos, you can add them on your twitter easily.
4. Add text on the photos
You can add the main title or related topic to the photo. For editing the photo, you can use any tool like Canva. Upload the photo on Canva and search for good templates. You can use free or paid templates for adding text to your photo. After creating, download the image and now you can add the photo to your tweet.
5.Use good hashtags
Adding hashtags is one of the most important Twitter tips. It allows the people to find you. If you have fewer followers, use hashtags that allow people to get your profile. As a traveler, you can add hashtags like #travel, #beach, #mountains, #NewYork, etc. But lots of hashtags look gaudy. Add only related hashtags as Twitter has a word limit.
6. Search people with the same interest
After creating a Twitter profile, write some tweets. Now start searching for people. You can search for travel bloggers or you can find people through related tabs. You will see lots of people with similar interests. Add people whose profile looks powerful and you can get better ideas from them. It will add you to the travel circle and more people will know about you.
7. Follow back
People often think a low following means an attractive profile. Well, you can’t completely deny it. Thousands of followers and few followings look like celebrity accounts. But with a new account on Twitter, follow back people. Many people send requests and when you follow them; they unfollow you. So, you should only follow accounts that look authenticated. Instead of pretending cool, if you want more people then start following people back.
8. Interact with people
On social media, you have to be social. When you see a quality post, praise it. Commenting on posts is a good technique to interact. Whenever someone shares your post, say thank you. They might look into your profile and follow your account.
9. Use Lists
Followers means they are interested in your posts. For a busy schedule, use aLists. Create a private list of your favorite Twitter accounts and filter the feed. Adding people to lists shows that they are crucial for you. On a laptop, go to profile and tap on Lists. While using Twitter on Phone, click on three dots and tap on the View List.
10. Tweet Regularly
Regular posts mean good followers. You should tweet at least once a day. If you haven’t written a blog, add photos. If you don’t tweet often, people will start unfollowing you. Share your travel tweet in the evening like after 7 PM so more people can read it.
11. Share Peoples’ Post
If you find any interesting posts then share them on your Twitter account. Say you are planning a trip and you find a related post on Twitter then share it. Write a few words, hashtags and don’t forget to mention the owner’s Twitter handle. Doing this will notify the owner and they may return a favor sometime.
12. Don’t use automated DMs
Everyone hates automated DMs. You have a genuine account; never share or send anything which can provide a negative impact. Many people use it for promotion but it won’t help a lot. Create genuine travel tweets only for more followers.
13. Check your post before sharing
Before sharing the post, always check spellings and grammar. People don’t like reading difficult posts. Use simple and correct language in your tweets. You can also add travel quotes with the photos.
14. Try Twitter Chats
For connecting with more people, try Twitter chats. You can get more people with the same traveling interest. Search for chat channels using hashtags. Find people, share your experience and do much more on Twitter.
