If you already have a mailing list, you can use Discord to manage it:
And you can do much more, like send messages to all your subscribers and get feedback on what you have, what you’re doing right and where you’re going wrong.
Twitter: You can talk to groups, get feedback on content, even help plan what you’re doing.
How do I know if it will work for me?
Based on my experience working with the thousands of customers who have had me send messages to their groups in Discord, it works. The customers had a positive reaction, and got a lot out of the communication. You can try it for yourself with a free account at Discord.com, and then try to communicate with groups you’re a part of on Twitter using the feedback I give below.
What do I need in order to grow my business using Discord?
This is completely different to Twitter. For one, you don’t have to sell anything. You can chat to anyone about almost anything. When you work with small businesses, you can send messages to your subscribers and get feedback on what you’re doing right and where you’re going wrong.
You don’t have to grow with an increase of business, with customer growth, which is one of the biggest mistakes businesses make on Twitter. You can always grow, especially if you add a step to it. I recently added the ability for businesses to grow with an email upgrade. I had a number of inquiries from companies saying, “Can I upgrade to a paid account? I’m really struggling with the free one”.
If you have a free account, you’re probably struggling to grow your business. The success I’ve had with Twitter is incredible. But I had years of experience before I was willing to take on new clients. I knew how to manage the business better than the people before me and got results.
So be sure to do some research. Think about how you would like to work with businesses, how you’d like to grow your business and how much you would pay. It may be that you will be able to grow your business in a different way from Twitter or other social media.
Discord: How to grow my business on Twitter
Twitter: I have to grow my business, and it’s not easy. I was used to doing it the way I’ve been doing it for years. You’re having to learn a new system. So I started doing research, looking for businesses who were growing using Twitter, but who weren’t necessarily doing it right.
I would talk to their customers, and they’d be saying, “My business is growing like crazy. I’ve got 5,000 customers. I’ve got to have more customers”. But they didn’t have a mailing list or feedback. I would just say, “How do you do it?” They’d say, “I haven’t got time to send messages to each one individually. I’d much rather get them all individually.”
