3. Your Sales Can Go Up
Twitter is not only a social media platform for quick updates anymore. The amount of sales produced from promoted tweets continues to increase year after year. Ad campaigns produced a 29% lift in leads who chose to explore a product further after being exposed to promoted tweets.

If you look at all the top companies on Twitter, chances are they have frequent updates being tweeted on their promotions and sales taking place. This is key to increasing engagement. Keep your customers posted DAILY on what they can look forward to.
Share content that is informative for your viewers so they can begin to trust you. Once you’ve gained their trust, they will continue to come back to your website or blog.
Holidays are a great time to promote your products, as consumers are looking for the cheapest and most reliable items to purchase. Start a deal when the holiday season starts, and then send out tweets with links so they can take advantage of them.
