Cluttered Twitter feeds scaring you?

[Challenge] Twitter has too much clutter to generate sales.

[Solution] Cut through the noise by using Search in order to find users who are requiring your service. This will also save you time.

Does the busyness of Twitter scare you away? There are similar ways to using Twitter to generate and find leads without sending a single tweet.

First, you need to log into Twitter. Go straight to the search bar at the top.

Let’s imagine that you own the best cake shop in Cape Town.
Imagine you someone who needs to buy cake. Type in “Cakes cape town” in the search box.

Like so:

cake twitter search

And the results:


Who is looking for cake based on their tweets?
Ah look, @kimara88 is looking for affordable cakes in Cape Town? Tweet her. She is a lead you already needs your service.

I might have lied early when I said you don’t need to send a single tweet. Just one or two. Ask her for her contact details or invite her to come to your store for a few tastings.

Yum. Happy non-tweeting.
