Threads: Your Newest Marketing Tool
It’s official—Threads is a thing.
At first glance, it looks to be nothing more than Instagram’s Twitter dupe. And for all intents and purposes, it very well could be. Just looking at the app’s interface, the ability to quote and repost content, along with several other factors, it’s literally the SAME APP.
But make no mistake—Threads is currently the HOTTEST social media platform in the world.

“Is Threads the next big thing, or am I just wasting my effort by trying to figure it out?”
That’s what we’re here to find out! So today, we’ll share some tips to help you use Threads to widen your reach and create more profitable opportunities. Let’s get started!
Explore The App
Don’t be discouraged because you’re just new to Threads.
EVERYONE is new to Threads.
We’re all trying to see what we can do on this app and what it can do for us. And right now, there’s no clear way to use the app to garner engagement, much less market a business.
But so far, many personalities and brands have already found success on Threads. If they can do it, so can you!
So take some time and explore the app’s features, as well as the pages of your favorite brands, celebrities and influencers. With enough research, and maybe some trial and error, you’ll eventually find what works for your business.
Engage With Your Audience
It doesn’t matter what platform you’re using. If your account isn’t engaging enough, the algorithm will not look fondly upon you.
So treat Threads just like any other social media app. Find ways to engage with your audience. Here are some ways to get this done:
Encourage your audience to reply to your posts
Quote or repost content that mentions your business
This seems like very basic stuff, right? But trust us—when you’re trying to find your way on a new platform such as this, you can’t forget your fundamentals.
Trust The Process
There is no one-size-fits-all solution for maximizing Threads. At least not right now.
So what can you do in the meantime?
Simple—trust the process and be consistent while using the app. You will discover things that work for you, and things that you can avoid. So keep posting, quoting, reposting, and following accounts that can provide you with additional insights.
And who knows? Before you know it, you’ll be one of the hottest accounts on this new platform!
