In this episode, Crystal King shares six practical Twitter tips to help you elevate your Twitter presence so you can stand out and rise above the masses. It’s not about having lots and lots of followers. It’s about having a smart plan that drives engagement and awareness.
This podcast episode is brought to you by the #TwitterSmarter Twitter chat. Each week, I host this chat and bring together hundreds of people in an active one-hour discussion revolving around Twitter marketing. It’s every Thursday at 1pm ET. Hope to see you there!

Your call to action for this episode is to follow Crystal’s Tip #3: Ask questions.
You can easily do this by conducting a Twitter poll. If you haven’t done this before, you can get info at madalynsklar.com/twitterpolls. And be sure to check out one I did recently by going to madalynsklar.com/mytwitterpoll, or just look below:
I’m taking a really important scientific poll today. Are you ready??
What is your favorite color?
— Madalyn Sklar 🚀 Digital Marketing since 1996 (@MadalynSklar) November 3, 2019
It’s an example of a not-so-serious poll. I literally asked my community to share their favorite color. Sometimes I keep my polls lighthearted like this, and at other times I ask questions that help me gauge how I can best serve them, like what topics they’d like to learn from me.
After you tweet your poll, hit “reply” and tag me (@MadalynSklar) so I can check it out. I’d love to see it.
