Have a plan. Implementing a plan will ensure that all brand advocates get treated fairly. Users will repeat patterns if you make it fun to talk about your brand.

Why Twitter?

Twitter’s transparency and ease of finding users make it the perfect platform to engage with the people who care about your brand. Although it is important to engage with people on all social media platforms, you can really do more with Twitter.

Your plan can be as simple as…

When someone positively mentions your brand, do the following:

  1. Follow them on Twitter
  2. Retweet if the message is especially great.
  3. Say thank you by mention and/or direct message

Or as in depth as…

  1. Add them to a spreadsheet
  2. Give them a point for every time they interact with your brand
  3. Announce the weekly winners in a tweet
  4. Add them to an “exclusive” Twitter list

Brand advocacy strategies are not only for big companies. Infact, it is arguably more important for small companies to implement a brand advocacy program on social media because there is a lack of instant credibility. Just don’t let the term “brand advocacy program” scare you. Tailor it to fit your company.

Here are some things to consider while building a brand advocacy program on Twitter.

  • – How will you reward your brand advocates?
  • – How can you game-ify it?
  • – Who are your target brand advocates?
  • – What kind of information do you want them to share?
