How to Create a Twitter Website Card
28th May 2014
Twitter website cards are a relatively new feature. Just introduced last year, the concept makes collecting leads in the social media platform simple and convenient. With a few button clicks and some punchy ad copy, you can start downloading qualified leads right through your Twitter Advertising dashboard.
Let’s get into the most-asked questions about Twitter website card.
What is a Twitter website card?
A Twitter website card’s design is simple and consists of four basic parts:
- A tweet limited to the standard 140 characters, presenting your offer to your audience
- A lead generation “card” — a 600px by 150px attention-grabbing image that piques interest and encourages clickthrough
- A call-to-action that drives users to take a specific action, usually related to sharing personal information with your business
A Twitter website card allows Twitter users to submit a lead to your organization in order to receive an offer or some other benefit. Cards could provide users with a discount coupon, a free download, a subscription to a mailing list — the options are endless.
Cards show up in a user’s timeline — they’ll see it as they scroll along, checking their daily news and other updates.
Why create a Twitter website card?
It’s a quick and easy way to test the lead gen waters in a social media app you’re already using every day. Highly customizable, Twitter website cards allow you to put your organization’s creative spin on collecting leads while harnessing the power of social media.
Twitter makes the process simple. All it takes is the click of a button to submit a lead for users to take advantage of a sweet deal. The easier it is to reap a reward, the more results you can expect to see in your inbox.
