5 steps Twitter advertising guide

Before getting started, let’s get to know what Twitter ads are. Twitter ads are the advertising solutions offered by X (formally Twitter). These marketing tools enable companies and individuals to use Twitter to reach a specific audience with their messages, goods, or services. In the following section, we will walk you through five simple steps to advertise on Twitter. 

Step 1. Choose a campaign objective

Twitter objectives

To start advertising on Twitter, you will need to create a campaign. Twitter offers several options for users to choose from, such as

  • Reach: maximize the number of users who see your tweets. This option is great for new business accounts that just started to advertise on Twitter.  
  • Engagements: increase the interactions with your tweets, such as likes, retweets, replies, and link clicks. 
  • Followers: grow your follower base and increase your overall reach.
  • Website traffic: drive traffic to your website or specific landing pages.
  • Keywords: reach users with high intent.

Step 2. Set up your ad

Set up your twitter ads

After choosing your campaign objective in the previous step, you are required to add text to your advertisement. Twitter only allows 280 characters for the ad text. So, you should keep your ad text concise and engaging to effectively communicate your message to the audience within the character limit. 

Then, you will need to add media to show what you are trying to advertise. The media will capture the attention of users and encourage them to stop scrolling and look at your ad. After you add the media, it will look something like this. 

Step 3. Customize your ad delivery 

Customize your twitter ads

After creating your ad, you will move on to the next step, which is Customize Delivery. In this step, you will narrow down your total audience to reach the right group of audiences that will interact with your ads.  

In the demographic section, you can narrow down your audience based on their gender, age, and location(s). Recently, Twitter added a new feature where you can also select a specific location based on your location radius to reach even deeper into your targeted audience group. 

In addition to the demographic section, Twitter provides optional targeting features where you can target your audience based on keywords they use, followers of similar accounts, and their devices. 

Twitter only charges you according to the amount you are willing to pay. So, you can set a budget that fits your needs and a date range to take more control of your spending. 

Step 4. Choose your ad placement

Twitter also lets you select your ad placements to attract more attention. The ad placements range from home timelines, profiles, search results, and replies. The more ad placements you select, the greater your potential reach. 

  • Home timelines: If an advertiser promotes a post that is relevant to that person, your campaigns may appear on that person’s timeline.
  • Search results: Your campaigns will appear at the top of some search results pages and through selected ecosystem partners.
  • Profile: You might be able to serve your impression to someone you target when they visit a Twitter profile or post detailed pages.

Step 5. Launch your campaign on Twitter

Now, we have reached the final step of creating your campaign, which is the launch. After you complete all the previous steps, you just need to click “Launch Campaign” and that’s it!
