Twitter Strategies for Tampa Businesses

 Twitter can be a great traffic source for your business! From driving traffic to blog posts and website content, to encourage customers to come into your brick & mortar store, you need to have a voice on Twitter!


Here are some quick tips that have worked for me:

  • Strive for 300-400 tweets per week
  • Schedule them in Hootsuite between the hours of 5 AM and midnight Eastern time
  • Schedule 1 tweet per blog post, per day so that your content gets seen often
  • 100+ motivational and inspirational quotes or images per week
  • 50 industry related tip tweets per week
  • 50 links to sales pages and promotional pages  weekly


Scheduling the basics above can be a huge time-saver for you and give you a base to work from. Then you can tweet more conversationally “live” when you have time a couple of times a week.

 Two more quick suggestions before you go:

  • Learn how to use trending hashtags! (Local one are great too, such as #TampaBay)
  • Send a thank you to every person that re-tweets your content!


Hope this inspires you to get more active on Twitter! Feel free to share this blog post or your twitter page and mention @HollyJeanTampa when you do! Let’s keep the conversation going below in the comments and on Twitter!

  1. Glad to know that my Twitter strategy is heading in the right direction! I usually do 6am to 9:30pm so I’m looking forward to seeing what happens when I extend it a little bit. This is a really great breakdown model to use to make sure that you are on task!

    1. Heather, I kept the same time schedule as you because I figured if I go to bed at 9am than so must the rest of my time zone, right? WRONG! When I extended my scheduling to midnight, I wake up to all kinds of engagement the next morning!

  2. These are great tips, Holly! I’ve made a lot of adjustments to all of my SM platforms, and have to say that Twitter is where I’m really getting a lot of engagement! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Yes Jackie! Personally I schedule 350 since that is the max allowable thru the excel spreadsheet function… then I live tweet, thank, etc throughout the week probably an additional 50! You can do it!

  3. Wow! Thats a lot of tweeting! I love this post, lots of great information. I think I am heading in the right direction, maybe need to increase my # of tweets per week though!

  4. HOLY TWITTERAHOLICS! OMG… I don’t think I could tweet 300x in a MONTH! However, I am soooo NOT a twitter fan and only post there when I post to other channels to put myself on another platform. Wow.. thanks for the info… but ya… wow!

  5. These are great tips that work I think for people that are even not in Tampa. I really enjoyed reading this post, and will use these tips a lot now. Thank you.
