Top Things to Consider When Creating a
Twitter Account for Marketing
If you’ve just decided to open a Twitter account for
business marketing purposes, then you’ve done the right thing. Twitter today is a highly effective tool to
get your product or service in the market and hopefully gather enough clients to make your business grow.
Creating an account for marketing is very different from creating a personal one however. You will need to go
beyond the usual settings and instead think about every step you do as a means to an
Most people identify images more than they do names. This is
why it is important for businesses to start as they mean to go – by providing a company image that will stick
in a person’s mind. If you already have a prominent business logo present in all your domains, then this
would be the best one to use. Do NOT change your profile picture, especially not after you’ve established

possible for you to change account setting throughout ownership. The settings can cover a wide area of how
you handle the Twitterverse such as how your profile would look, how followers and non-followers will see
your page, what updates will be publicly visible and whether you will be connected through mobile.
Essentially, tweaking your settings will provide you with a much better handle on your account, allowing you
to monitor practically everything happening.
Now all these may seem basic, but a lot of business owners
starting up a Twitter account usually miss them. Although you might argue that it’s possible to change names
and images if the first few didn’t suit – this is not really advisable. You see, online branding and presence
rely on an important factor – recognition. If you keep changing your top two identifiers – name and image –
then you are basically rebooting the client’s memory of you. This will ruin all the successes you’ve made in
branding yourself and may even cause a decline in sales.
