Feb 19, 14 A New Way to Use Twitter for Business in 2014


Twitter for Business 2014:

Personal-professional twitter accounts






What is a Personal-Professional Twitter Account?

A personal-professional twitter (PPT) account is an account that is created for business purposes that utilizes the advantages of personal account characteristics. 

PPT accounts have an advantage over traditional brand or business accounts because they allow users to connect with a person rather than corporation.

Branded accounts want users to connect with the brand.
PPT accounts want users to engage with a person representing the brand.


What are your PPT goals?

We established that PPT accounts are created to engage users with someone representing a brand but your goals need to go a step further.
You need to answer WHO, WHAT, WHY and WHERE
  • Who are you trying to target?
  • What action do you want that target audience to take on Twitter? After that?
  • Why is it important that users engage with PPT account?
  • Where is your target audience?

Go one step further

What are you hoping to achieve on Twitter? Who are you trying to reach?

Your twitter goals should consist of 3 parts:

  1.  a metric
  2. a targeted audience
  3. a deadline.
Example goals: 
I want to receive 10 retweets from Chicago news publications by October
I want to generate 30 website visits from Chicago twitter users by September.
