Keys to success

Make the most of the available resources

Make the most of the available resources

Creating quality content should be a real team effort. Uniper wanted people from across the company to be able to provide relevant content to share on Twitter. So, the online media team created an internal network to let them do so. Anyone at Uniper can now submit news, photos, or other information, with the best being shared worldwide.

 

Learn and adapt

Learn and adapt

Every ad or Tweet can be a learning experience. The Uniper team saw this as the key to their strategy. They looked at the detailed information in the Twitter Ads Manager, as well as the feedback they received, and acted accordingly. If something was doing well, they knew that they could build on that success and optimise future content.

 

Pick the right targets

Pick the right targets

Having a large number of followers is good, but the quality of those followers is also important. Uniper wanted to reach a specific audience, so used Twitter’s extensive targeting options. By combining several types of targeting, including by geography and keyword, they could focus on getting their content in front of the right people.
