Trending at TwoSix: Ask, Target, Optimize

The TwoSix Digital team has officially kicked off our very own content plan so we can bring you our knowledge and expertise throughout the week. The blog will dive deeper into the factoids we throw your way throughout the week, so let’s get rolling.

Tip of the Week: If you would like to know what your audience wants to hear…ASK THEM!

This is a pretty basic tip, but always rings true. Do you get stumped on your blogs? Are you writing about a subject matter that is outside of your area of expertise? Try ASKING your audience for their ideas and insight. Their answers might surprise you. Gaylord, Michigan recently asked their audience for their thoughts on ice fishing on their Facebook page. Take it even further, and repurpose those comments into a blog! Also consider testing out Twitter polls. One thing we know for sure, the general population LOVES sharing their opinions on social media, so tap into that!

Fact of the Week: 30% of online Americans who earn $75K or more a year use Twitter.

When working with a DMO, we often hear their targeting people with a disposable income. So what are you doing to go after this audience? That’s why we found it interesting 30% of higher income individuals use Twitter. Time and time again we hear Twitter is a “pain point” for our clients. Here’s your proof to not throw in the towel! We found this little factoid on Hootsuite’s blog. Take a look, and let us know what other statistics about Twitter are interesting to you.
