9 ways of using Twitter lists for business

Twitter Lists are finely-curated feeds of all the people you want to hear from on a given topic. 

You can have as many lists as you want but there are strategic ways of creating twitter lists for business and we disclose that just below:

Monitor your competitors

You can easily put your competitors into a Twitter list to keep an eye on what they’re doing. You’ll want to make this list private, though, so that they don’t catch on to what you’re doing and think that you are stalking them — which you are.

Stay trendy

Keep a list of websites and blogs that share breaking news in your industry so that you will stay updated every time. Include all bunch of news sources, bloggers, and other users who share the latest information.

Manage customer relationships

Twitter lists are a great way to let your customers know that you’re paying attention to what they have to say.

People get a notification each time they’re added to a list, so this is the perfect way to thank people for doing business with you.

The team list

Place all your team members into one list so that it’s easy to interact with them.

Manage your events

If you’re hosting an event, creating lists is a great way to help manage it. Create a list for speakers at your conference, sponsors of your event, or people who are attending.

Follow the leader

By having a list of the influencers of your industry, you’re able to keep up with what all of them are doing all at the same time. It will be easier to interact with their tweets and get inspired.

Twitter chat participants

If you participate in Twitter chats, you may also want to add people you’ve interacted with to a list so that you can continue relationships with them after the chat is over.

The niche list

This is a list of everyone that is relevant to your industry.

Let’s give an example based on Smadie:

We are a social media/digital marketing agency so in our niche list, we would include other agencies of our industry such as Lyfe Marketing and Project Bionic.
