How do I set up a Twitter account?

It's quite straightforward, although some design expertise and knowledge of an image-editing programme like Adobe Photoshop is definitely an advantage.


How to set up a Twitter account - Step One:

Navigate to www.twitter.com. Then click on the 'Sign Up' button as shown below:

Click to go to the Twitter sign-up page...


How to set up a Twitter account - Step Two:

Enter your own name and email address and pick a username that matches your business name as closely as possible. We're going to call ourselves Buzz Widgets. Now click on the 'Create My Account' button as shown below:

This is the Twitter sign-up page


How to set up a Twitter account - Step Three:

You will now be sent an email to the address you provided. You'll need to click the 'Confirm' button to complete the sign-up process as shown below.

You will be emailed a confirmation link...


How to set up a Twitter account - Step Four:

You will now be directed to your brand new account with Twitter. The default design and layout is shown below:

What if I don't want to design a Twitter account page myself?

Whilst it is perfectly possible to create your own Twitter Page, you may prefer to let Dalemedia do this for you.

Here's what's included:

  1. We set up your Twitter account
  2. We apply for a 'friendly' Twitter URL (i.e. twitter.com/yourbizname)
  3. We design, upload and test all the artwork for you
  4. We connect your business mobile number to the account enabling you to create tweets directly to/from your mobile.
  5. If desired, we connect your Facebook account to it so that your 'tweets' also appear on your Facebook page.
  6. If desired, we can also add a Twitter feed into your main website so that your website visitors can see your interactions/tweets in real time.

We would then add a Twitter 'follow' button to all of your web pages. From that point onwards, the lengthy and often laborious task of creating inbound links has at least partly been handed over to your 'audience'.

For this service we charge an unbeatable £149. For further details, call us on 01706 345648 today!
