You've heard us mention the important of building an editorial calendar but what about creating an editorial calendar for your social media account like Twitter?

With just 140 characters, your Twitter account has the potential to not only increase your blog's traffic but also build engagement with your social media audience and blogging community. Building the content for your Twitter channel can be easy with just a little dose of inspiration and planning.

  3. Engage with fashion influencers (Hello DKNY and OscarPRGirl!) through questions or comments on their own Tweets.
  4. Live tweet television shows (Revenge is huge, so is New Girl & Mad Men) and discuss the show's fashions/beauty.
  5. Share commentary on important industry-related issues (fashion designer shake-ups, new collections, etc).

    Great tips! I can’t stress networking enough! We regularly share our blogs posts with influencers such as @dkny or @nycprgirls, or any brand or celeb mentioned in a post. @dkny replied to our tweet yesterday and we more than doubled our views for the day!

    I’ve been on Twitter for years, but a lot of these are new to me. Good stuff!

    I’ve been on twitter for ages, but just as a passenger – not really doing anything except posting blog links there. Great tips, I’m off to engage the twittersphere now (hopefully!)

    These are some great tips. We use a lot of them already on the blog, but some were new to us. Thanks so much!

    I instantly unfollow anyone who live tweets tv shows, seriously. Re-think your audience before you jump on that one, kiddos. Works for some, not for others.

    The rest are great!
