Twitter Grader has been around for a few years, but I wanted to do a review of this useful tool to build your business on Twitter.For those of you not aware, Twitter Grader is a tool that grades your Twitter account, so you can have an idea of what to fix on Twitter. For example, did you forget to fill out your bio? Twitter Grader will show how your account is hurting, because of this omission.

The higher your score the more likely you will have success on Twitter. For example, below are two of my accounts on Twitter: @AndyNathan and @TechyToys.

Before we begin talking about Twitter Grader, I want to state right off the bat that fully comparing these two accounts is not exactly apples to apples. First, my @andynathan account has been around for going on 2 1/2 years now versus @techytoys, which is 2 months old exactly today. Second, there are two completely different level of interactions on these accounts. @AndyNathan has some automation, but I am on the account daily to interact with users. @TechyToys is more automated.

Yet, that is exactly the point of Twitter Grader. To determine whether or not your Twitter account is fully functional. Without knowing that your account has at least the basic foundation for success how can you successfully use Twitter for business.

How To Use Twitter Grader For Business

  1. Make sure that your profile is complete. I know this is basic social networking 101. However, it goes without saying that my @techytoys account needs to have a full profile.
  2. Get outside advice about your Twitter account. So many times we look at our accounts and sites with a gleam in our eye as we proudly display them to the world. An outside perspective shows how we can really use these tools effectively.
  3. When you know where you are you can get better. I realize that my @andynathan account has a 100 rating, but there is always room for improvement. Now I know that I have done all the basics right, what else can I do? For @techytoys I realize that I need to go back to the basics.

As you can see, there is a lot of different aspects that go into creating a valid Twitter account. Using services, such as Twitter Grader help you use Twitter more effectively to grow your business. At the same time, using Twitter Grader has helped me over the years learn what I need to improve upon with my account.
