All You Need to Know About the Twitter Dashboard!
Twitter has grown exponentially in the last few years and it continues to do so to this very day. Some of this growth can be attributed to entrepreneurs trying to feature their brand on social media; doing everything they can to increase their visibility and audience reach. Twitter acknowledges this massively active section of their user base and has recently unveiled Twitter Dashboard to help businesses in managing their twitter account with ease.
Twitter Dashboard is the latest tool by Twitter to help entrepreneurs effectively and easily manage their accounts, statistics, mentions and to better help them connect with their audience.
This tool sounds like a Godsend for those social media managers that struggle with the monolith of everyday account activity.
So, here, we are going to take you through the ranks and help you set up your Twitter Dashboard!
You can get started by going to www.dashboard.twitter.com or by simply clicking the prompt that Twitter sends you when you log in.
Once logged in, you’ll be asked to identify the type of your business. The options available are:
- App or Game
- Local Business
- Online Business
- Brand or Product
This step is for Twitter to identify the kind of bespoke tools it needs to provide you so your online experience will be as seamless as possible.
Then Twitter asks you to state the number of employees that work for your brand.
After these selections comes a crucial step. Twitter will ask you to identify related terms to your business, basically keywords, that resonate with your brand, so users can find your account(s) without much difficulty.
Later, Twitter will ask you to identify the keywords that DO NOT resonate with your brand; basically any keyword or phrase that you do not want associated with your name, you select here.
Save and move on to exploring your Twitter Dashboard!
