Business man pressing into the Twitter social network

If you learn how to use all the social media platforms out there, then your business can improve dramatically. Allshouse Designs has just started to really use the Twitter platform. With that said, today’s blog post is going to put a giant of the social media world under the spotlight; Twitter. Mainly, we’ll be looking to answer the question; what are the benefits of Twitter for business?

Improved Customer Service

Twitter is a brilliant platform as it provides companies with a new means of customer service. A business can use Twitter to respond to customer complaints and open up a dialogue with people from around the world. If you tweet about a product from your business profile, customers may respond with questions. You can then reply to them instantly, solving any queries in not time at all. Also, the beauty of Twitter is that you can search for keywords relating to your business – such as your company name – and find other people’s tweets. So, you could search for these keywords, find people tweeting about you, and interact with them. This is a great way of finding people with issues and solving them instantly.

Boosts Web Traffic and Sales

This social media platform is great for directing people towards your website and giving your sales a boost. You can use Twitter to reveal new products to all your followers, with a link to the product on your website. If you don’t sell things online, you can use a link to a page on your site that shows your business location. This will tell people where they can find you to purchase your products. Plus, Twitter uses hashtags which allow you to tag posts with keywords that others can search for. As a result, people that don’t follow you can still see your posts and click on the links to your website. Web traffic increases, which has a positive effect on sales.

Helps You Keep Up with Trends

Twitter is the place to be if you want to stay up to date with all the current trends in your industry. When certain things are spoken about a lot, they start to trend on Twitter. What’s more, you can decide what you see as trending by changing the settings, so only relevant things appear. This means you’ll never miss a beat in your industry, and can keep up with all the current trends. As a consequence, you can use the trends to give your business a big boost and ensure you never fall behind the competition.

Strengthens Your Brand Image

We’ve already mentioned how Twitter is a great way to communicate with customers and provide a better service. Well, in doing so, it also helps you strengthen your brand image. Twitter is all about sharing information, and the info you share reflects your image and values. Clever business owners use Twitter to push forth their values and help connect with new customers that identify with their brand.

Spunks! Pumpkin Seeds with a Kick!

Hell yeah! Spunks has given their pumpkins seeds with a kick, a new look and if you haven’t seen our first YouTube video. In it, Rolands mentions a little bit about his new Flavor “Sriracha Kick”.  He describes it as somewhat sweet with a little smoke flavor leaving you with a taste of THAI! Hmmm, doesn’t that sounds good! Well you can now taste it for yourself by purchasing a verity pack of all five flavors at Spunkstore.com.

Now what does this news have to do with Allshouse Designs? Well let me tell you! We found, in our mail box. A free sample of all the Spunks flavors including “Sriracha Kick”! Of course Matt and I were ecstatic. We both agreed that Matt had to put together a YouTube video about it. Here you go!

Where to get these tasty seeds? It easy to order up the verity pack at spunkstore.com or you can go to these brick and mortar establishments. I can’t tell you how good these roasted pumpkin seeds are. I mean come on…. NO SHELLING REQUIRED! Just open the bag and poor them down. Here is a few testimonials that I grabbed off of amazon.com.

These are a delicious, healthy snack. My favorite is the original and my kids love the sea salt flavor. I love that these are simple, natural ingredients so I don’t have to worry about any extra add-ins. Well done Spunks!

5.0 out of 5 stars  Great Product!

After one of the owners gave me a sample bag to try on the Mukilteo ferry, I was hooked. Best tasting and healthiest snack around. And pound for pound better than a Clif Bar when you are on the go. Have tried them all at this point and all are great, but if I had to pick a favorite I’d go with the Sea Salt Kick! Outstanding product at a comparative bargain price!

5.0 out of 5 stars  Delicious!

Fabulous snack and so healthy! Great to pack along on a hike. I also used them in salads and on soup. It is so convenient to be able to order Spunks on Amazon. I will definitely get them again!

The Call To Action Button

What is a Call To Action Button?

A CTA is one of the most important buttons to have on your business landing page. Marketing studies show that when you have a well placed CTA on your website. Your customer conversion rates are much higher then if you did not have one. I really think it actually makes users feel good about their web surfing experience. I am always bothered when I log onto a website and can’t find out how to contact the business or worse buy their products or services. Basically in a nut shell, a call of action button is a graphic that looks like a button that is easily seen. Once you push the button. It should take you to a web page to purchase a product, schedule a service, join a news letter or contact the business.

What should it look like?

Here is a screen shot of a simple “Learn More” CTA button on Allshouse Designs.

If you have any questions about your call of action button. Remember I am always here to help with your business website. Feel free to contact me or just post a comment to talk more about it.

Research, Research, Research your Market!

I can’t say it enough. Do your research! Starting a business is not easy. Don’t go in blind. The digital age continues to create information on all of us. There is no excuse!  It would be straight up stupid not to figure out your target market, right?

There has been one time in my life where I watched a business rise and fall. It was two years of complete failure. A simple internet search would of told the owner of the business what to do. Instead, he did not do his research. He basically had to lay off the employees that he trained at his expense. The only good outcome was that the employees that he trained went off and worked for other businesses and made hundreds of thousands of dollars for those businesses. It was a harsh reality, but this happens all the time. Do your research and don’t watch your business slip away.

If that is not a good enough reason for you to do your research . Check out some more reasons why market research is important in the Tips and Update section at allshousedesigns.com.
