Twitter’s ad solutions are very simple. It’s separated into two categories: Promoted Tweets and Promoted Accounts.
Promoted Tweets are perfect when you would like to advertise a precise message, or product. If your goal is new followers, promoting your account is the most effective technique.
You can decide on two types of targeting. The most used is by keyword. This allows you to target those who search, tweet about or engage with a particular term. Try targeting by interests and followers, reaching people who fall into a broad particular interest category, or who follow particular accounts. You can also restrict your targeting to certain devices, like BlackBerry, and by gender.
Once you have that in place, you can put lifetime and daily maximum budgets for your campaign. If you’re using a Promoted Tweet campaign, you place the figure you’re ready to spend every time someone retweets, replies, favorites, follows or clicks on your tweet. Twitter suggests bidding anywhere between $1.50 to $2.20 per engagement range. For Promoted Account campaigns, you disburse for every follower Twitter suggests bidding in the $2.50 to $3.50 range.
You can easily develop your followers with promoted accounts. You can spot promoted accounts in a variety of areas within Twitter, in the Who to Follow box, for example. This is a fine method to boost the targeted followers of your Twitter account rapidly, particularly if you are new to Twitter or just want to increase your audience.
Targeting options are restricted to reaching users who are related to a specific Twitter user’s followers and reaching users with particular interest categories. You can, in addition, select a tweet from your account that will be exposed on mobile devices next to the suggestion to follow you. The tweet should be something that gives your probable new follower a motivation to follow your account.
Budgeting options are based on the fact that you place a total budget, daily maximum and bid for each follower. Suggested bid amounts differ based on the targeting options you put, although it can vary from $2 to $3 for every follower. This is the reason why you have to be awfully selective regarding your targeting, so you only pay for followers who are appropriate for your business.
