Raise your Twitter Engagement Rate with a Little Human Connection
There are all kinds of metrics worth measuring for your social media campaigns. However, what counts on Twitter is your engagement. Research shows that the best way to get the highest Twitter engagement rate is to feature people in your tweets! For many mining companies, this can be a challenge. You may feel like you don’t have the time or expertise to take lots of photos. Management may not be comfortable in front of the camera. However, if you want to improve engagement, you should get over your shyness, so your audience can see your team!

People love to look at images, especially ones that feature human faces. Psychologists can study the reasons for this.

However, you don’t need to be a professional photographer or have expensive equipment. Today’s smartphones are perfectly capable of taking clear and compelling photos.
