TWITTER HOW-TO TIP #81
The Twitter Countdown Strategy. People love countdowns and this concept is reinforced
every year as we all collectively watch and enjoy the countdown to the New Year. An
incredibly creative strategy I’ve developed, which dovetails or augments my previous
strategy #80, is to post timed tweets in a countdown fashion. Sort of a Countdown
“Twitter Tease” strategy.
This makes a roll-out, a launch, a release, a tele-seminar start, an event opening seem
exciting and the multiple tweets of a Twitter Countdown increase the likelihood followers
will pay attention – you’re covering a broader Twitter timeline span.
You can do any level of sequential posting you feel appropriate (daily, hourly,
minute-by-minute or a combination), but the idea is to build significant penetration and
excitement among your followers. My recommendation is to map out your sequential Tweets
upfront and enter them in to a system like TweetLater (http://www.tweetlater.com/). If
done with creativity and sparingly, the Twitter Countdown Strategy is one of the most
powerful strategies I’ve originated.
