Customer Segmentation and Targeting on Twitter

Introduction

Twitter is a powerful medium that can leverage your business. With just 140 character messages, Twitter can send huge volumes or traffic to your websites or blogs. In this post, we will try to understand how we can target new customers on Twitter.

How to target new customers on Twitter

Twitter offers a unique tool to create custom ads. We can create an audience profile with a number of filter criteria such as people in one or more locations, gender, languages, devices used, interests, events, behaviours etc. All these filters help us to drill down to a well curated list of people who are most likely to view and connect with our ad.

 Here are a series of images that show the various filters available in Twitter
