Back in 2014, Twitter announced they were launching a feature to “make shopping from mobile devices convenient and easy, hopefully even fun”, the Twitter Buy button.
This feature allowed businesses on Twitter to generate leads, and let users buy products directly from the social platform, without ever leaving to another website.
This simple feature generated massive excitement from the social media marketing community. The idea of social selling was hot and the seamless experience of finding leads on twitter, and letting them buy directly on the platform, was appealing to many businesses and brands.
Fast forward three years later, Twitter announced they were definitely shutting down the buy button feature for business users.
This feature never worked for a ton of reasons that we won’t get into in this post.
Instead, we’re going to give you strategies and tactics on how to use Twitter for business (and generate more leads), that actually work.
We hand-picked our favorite resources on how to use Twitter for business (and make money).
