Twitter Names: Choosing One for Your Company

Submitted by on April 24, 2013 – 10:00 amNo Comment

Out of the millions of Twitter names that have already been created, is your company left with any good user names to choose from? Thankfully these tips will help you realize that there are. Companies choose Twitter names based on their ability to increase Twitter followers and define their brand. There are a few things to keep in mind when selecting a name that does the same.

Grow your company on Twitter, but first decide on a name.

Grow your company on Twitter, but first decide on a name.

Although Twitter names can be outrageous, businesses should remember to keep it simple and straightforward. This means that their Twitter name should reflect the brand’s name directly, or as closely as possible. Doing this allows the public to know exactly who your business is, and makes it easy to find if they are interested in following you, using your products or services or connecting with you through the site (therefore increasing your company’s Twitter followers).

Since there are so many Twitter names out there, creating one that is similar to your company name will also increase your search engine optimization (SEO) results. Think of your Twitter name as a keyword that you want to appear whenever it is typed into a search engine – which means you had better come up with a name people will actually be prone to type! Be sure to maximize your SEO by filling out your bio on our new Twitter account as well.

Thinking of a name that is different than all of the other Twitter names out there is a process that requires time, planning and strategy. If done correctly, however, it will pay of – literally. It will help your company to have a strong presence on the social networking site and increase your brand’s fan-base immensely.
