Do you have a personal Twitter account… and now are you looking to convert Twitter account to business account?
Many business industries have taken advantage of Twitter as a social media platform to promote their products and services. Those that don’t take advantage of Twitter risk being left behind!
But don’t worry it’s very easy!
Today I’m going to show you how easy it is to learn how to convert Twitter account for business.
Easy Steps to Convert Twitter Account for Business
Are you ready to convert Twitter account for business? If you already have a personal account created and set up already, it’s pretty easy to convert it for business.
So let’s just dive in…
Step 1: Logging In
Once you already have a Twitter account, you can simply convert it into a Twitter business account instead of creating new one. All you have to do is start by logging in using your personal Twitter account username and password.
Once you’re successfully logged in then you can start editing your account information….
Step 2: The Username
If you are using your name (or a goofy name) for your Twitter account username, and want to change it to your business name or something more professional, that’s not a problem!
After logging into your account, click on the gear icon on the upper right. This will take you to profile and settings. From there you will have access to all of your account information.
From here you can edit your Twitter username to your business name.
Using a username that reflects your business will help make your Twitter account more professional. Your potential customers will see that your business account is real and not amateurish. The trick is sometimes is to make sure that when you eliminate spaces between words in the business name that you don’t make the business name difficult to discern easily.
Step 3: Adding Extras
Just below the username field is the email address field. You can also change your email address to match your business email.
On this same page, you can also add in your business location. You can also indicate your country just below the content tab.
Step 4: Setting Up
Now that you have change your Twitter account information to match your business, go ahead and start editing your profile. This is the page where your followers will see once they visit your profile.
To begin, click on your profile photo on the upper right corner which is just beside the Tweet icon. Click on your name and you will be redirected to your profile page.
Once you are under your profile, you can now begin changing it. Click on the edit profile button which is on the right side of the page. This will then highlight all options that can be changed. This will include your profile photo. Make sure it represents your business or use your business logo as an example.
You can also have the option to change the header photo. This is similar to Facebook cover page where you can add a photo to give more emphasis to what your business offers.
Below your profile photo is where you can change your Twitter name, bio, location, website, birthday and also theme color.
Have your Twitter name match your Twitter username to avoid confusion, and instead provide consistency.
The bio is a brief description of your business. This is where your followers will get an idea of what your business is all about. This is limited to 150 characters, so make it count. I like to add in a couple hashtags (don’t go crazy) to help make the Twitter page stand out for some important keywords.
Next is location: just like changing it on settings. If your business has a physical address, then go take advantage of this feature. This is for your followers who are interested about your business and want to locate your location. Even those who are not too interested may also end up visiting your store if they see that it is just near their location.
If you have a virtual business, then you can use the address field to add a call to action like Click The Link Below to get people to click your website link.
Add your website to redirect your customer to your landing page where they will get to know your business more.
Change your theme color according to how you want your profile to feel and look like. Try to pick colors congruent with your website and social media branding.
Lastly, you can edit your birthday. Since this is a business account, use the date when your business was founded. This is for your followers to know how long your business has been around.
After all these changes, don’t forget to click save changes.
Step 5: Starting Your Business
Finally, after converting your personal Twitter account for business, you’re now ready to start promoting your products and services. Go start tweeting updates about your business.
Start following people and get more engagement with your followers. These basic steps will help you grow your business.
As you have more time, start to experiment with additional features like lists and search filters. All these will help you find and attract potential clients.
