For Better Engagement, Twitter Must Introduce “Remind Me” Option

For Better Engagement, Twitter Must Introduce “Remind Me” Option

Being a power Twitter user,  I often favourite many tweets so that I can go through them later. However some of the tweets are time bound or an invite to an event, which means if I don’t access them on time, I miss them , leading to loss of opportunity, business development and/or productivity. Therefore, I am suggesting that Twitter adds a “remind me” option within tweets and Twitter cards. Please see below for more details.

What is the product feature?

I am proposing to introduce a “Remind Me” option within tweet entities in order to improve the end user’s experience, service utilisation and engagement on Twitter.

I strongly believe this feature will also help Twitter to bring more engagement with Twitter plus give deeper insight into users’ real interests and intent, and later on this feature can be monetised via Twitter Ads!

What is the problem?

When I see a tweet for a future event, there is no way I can set a reminder within Twitter to follow up that event, which means I could miss out on some very important events and that could cause loss of productivity, money, entertainment, and time.

For example

If there is a time bound offer from a brand, such as tickets for popular concert on sale in the future, I can’t set a reminder, and if I miss that sale I can’t buy the product at a discounted price or I have to buy from resellers, which could cost me 2-3 times the list or discounted price.

Similarly, I can miss potential business and/or skill development opportunities, if I miss a Twitter chat or Q&A for a topic that can help me to engage with possible clients, suppliers, and/or other stakeholders.

I have also listed multiple examples for which I would like to set a reminder to utilise Twitter for both productivity, engagement and entertainment.

E.g. if I like to watch live TV interviews or talk shows:

Also, if I like to be reminded of relevant skill development programs:

Or want to catch up with live entertainment events!

What is the Solution?

The solution is a “Remind Me” option within tweet entities. The way it would work is that when I select the Remind Me option, I should be able to set a reminder date/time (default should be event time detected from tweet) and subsequently as per the reminder instructions, that tweet would be pinned at the top of my notification area, which will eventually trigger a notification on my mobile to alert me about the event.

Twitter can introduce the same feature via Twitter Card with a “Remind Me” button that can prompt features like add event to calendar and create/RSVP event to your friends.

I have drawn some sketches below to demonstrate how this option should work.

 Step 1 – Select Remind Me Option

Users should be able to select the Remind Me option from both web and app!

Step 2 – Set Reminder (Time and Date)

This option will enable the user to set time and date to remind him/her of an event. The system should be intelligent enough to figure out time and date from the tweet. However, the user should be able modify reminder settings to receive an alert at their convenience.

Step 3: Notify User

As per the reminder (date and time), the Tweet should be pinned at the top in the notification tab – which will also trigger DM and Push Notification.

The above notification will trigger push notification on phones.

Twitter Card Option

I think Twitter can introduce a more advanced version via Twitter Cards where users can add events to their calendars or RSVP to others via a tweet!

Why Should Digital Agencies Use TweepForce?

TweepForce has opened up the Twitter market to businesses and agencies who want to improve sales conversions, increase traffic, and save money on advertising.

For many companies, businesses, and agencies, the marketing portion of the budget is huge – sometimes astronomical. Unfortunately, much of that budget is spent on marketing techniques, methods, and tactics that either don’t attract enough of an audience or attract the wrong type of audience – the type that isn’t interested. One unique aspect about TweepForce is that it enables the customer to initiate the conversation, instead of the other way around.

In this manner, marketing budgets used for TweepForce aren’t spent creating and pushing ads randomly that can cost millions of dollars, only to be ignored or brushed aside by consumers who aren’t interested. Instead, agencies that use TweepForce are able to spend less on a marketing channel that is more effective, and is also customer-initiated. Instead of paying millions to push non-focused ads all over the Internet, with TweepForce, businesses are able to increase sales and ultimately, their ROIs, thanks to a controlled, powerful marketing channel.

The mobile market is huge, and Twitter commands an enormous number of users. 80% of those who use Twitter do so right from their mobile phones and devices, so TweepForce is the ideal suite of tools to turn that usage into sales! Agencies can even white label TweepForce offerings, which means they are able to offer their own clients the ability to cater to the millions of mobile Twitter users, increase their mobile following, gamify product discovery and reap the benefits of increasing their presence in the mobile marketplace.

Businesses, digital agencies, and in-house digital marketing teams who want to take a new, profitable approach with e-commerce rely on TweepForce to create analytics-driven campaigns that are targeted, customer-initiated, and focused. From drastically reducing the marketing budget to increasing sales conversions, businesses reach no limit when they use TweepForce as their Twitter marketing tool. Get started for free today.

TweepForce E-Commerce Twitter Tools: Ideal Across Industries

TweepForce E-Commerce Twitter Tools: Ideal Across Industries

TweepForce is an ideal solution for digital agencies and brands who want to enable their customers to purchase and/or reserve products right through Twitter. Until TweepForce, the capabilities for e-commerce through Twitter was largely non-existent. Now, however, e-commerce via TweepForce Twitter tools is a viable, profitable solution for businesses across all industries and all niches. Following are three case studies in which TweepForce was used as such solutions for various brands:

Techrocks

TechRocks, a popular social retail group, uses TweepForce to sell tickets; in one such case, the group was organizing a music festival for some local companies. TechRocks successfully sold its tickets by using TweepForce Twitter tools. The organizer of TechRocks, Pete Doyle, says that he uses TweepForce because the group wants to make it easy for people to register for its events on a single tweet in a time-efficient manner.

In this particular case, users tweet TechRocks to check the availability of tickets, and TechRocks Live replied with availability information and a booking hashtag for the users to use. Those users then replied with that booking hashtag to book the tickets they wanted, and TechRocks confirmed the booking using a reply Tweet chosen by them.

OpenTable UK

OpenTable UK relies on TweepForce Twitter tools for their customers to be able to reserve their tables via tweets. It was a pilot project run by TweepForce via its social commerce platform. OpenTable UK opted to link its call center directly to the TweepForce platform to ensure customers would enjoy an experience with seamless booking.

In this case, users tweet to check the availability for a specified location, and the OpenTable handler returns the nearest four restaurants, along with the booking hashtag. The users then tweet back with the number of people, time, and the date they would like to book. The restaurant at hand either confirms or cancels the booking, and the user receives a confirmation or cancellation tweet.

DMG Group

TweepForce Twitter tools are great for client books of other industries, as well, as DMG Group demonstrates. DMG Group is a B2B travel company that relies on TweepForce for its client bookings all over the globe. DMG Group is a hotel retailer; TweepForce has integrated to the established API for real-time booking capabilities to enable users to book hotels straight through Twitter.

With DMG Group and TweepForce, users tweet to check hotel availability for a chosen location, and the nearest three hotels with availability are tweeted to the user, along with a booking hashtag. The users reply with the number of people, the date, and the length of stay desired. The DMG Group handler then books the hotel using the live API, then replies to the user with a confirmation or rejection tweet.
