Have you ever felt like a celebrity on social media?

I’ve had a moment or two when someone I really like or admire reshares a post of mine, or when people from across the world happen to come across my content and like or follow.

Social media has that unique ability to take non-celebs like me and thrust us into the spotlight every now and then.

Well now Twitter’s gone one step further. You can apply to be Twitter verified and receive a blue checkmark badge next to your name. To become verified on Twitter, you simply update your profile with current information, verify a phone number and email address, then fill out a form requesting consideration as a verified user.

It does provide a bit of an ego boost and celebrity moment to see the blue badge, but here’s the real kicker: There are significant business/brand advantages to being Twitter verified.

I’d love to show you how you can get your business or brand verified on Twitter and the great things that might mean!

(Nieman Lab wrote one of the best recaps of what the new Twitter verification process has meant, if you’re keen to check it out. The image above is from the great folks there.)

How to Get Verified on Twitter, Step-by-Step

  1. Fill out your profile completely with profile picture, cover photo, name, website, and bio
  2. Add a verified phone number and confirm your email address
  3. Add your birthday
  4. Set your tweets as “public”
  5. Visit the verification form on Twitter

(Note: If you’re applying for verification of a personal profile as opposed to a business profile, you’ll also need a copy of a photo ID like a passport or driver’s license.)

In Twitter’s announcement about verified accounts, they listed a few particular elements that might be a factor in which accounts they choose to verify and which they don’t. The biggest factor in getting verified on Twitter is that the profile is of public interest. 

To explain a bit further, Twitter mentions that “public interest” might include public figures and organizations in the fields of:

  • Music
  • TV
  • Film
  • Fashion
  • Government
  • Politics
  • Religion
  • Journalism
  • Media
  • Sports
  • Business
  • and other key interest areas

So long as you meet the minimum guidelines with your profile (things like having a profile photo and a verified phone number, etc.), the verification process seems to be a bit subjective in ultimately deciding what is of “public interest.”

If you go through the process once and don’t get verified, no worries. You can try again in 30 days.

In terms of the minimum guidelines, here’s a bit more about how to complete each one successfully.

Verify your phone number on Twitter.

You can add a phone number to your account here; to verify the number, enter the verification code that Twitter sends to your email. This is what it looks like if your phone number is verified:

twitter-phone-settings

Confirm your email address.

You can add your email address here; to confirm the email, click the link that Twitter sends to your email address. This is what it looks like if your email address is confirmed:

twitter-email-settings

Add a bio, profile photo, cover photo, birthday, and website.

To add or edit this information, visit your profile on Twitter (in my case, twitter.com/kevanlee). If you’re logged in, you should see an “Edit Profile” button to the right of your Twitter stats.

edit-profile-twitter

Clicking the edit button will make the various aspects of your profile editable. You can click to change your cover photo and your profile photo. You can edit the text areas directly from this screen.

twitter-settings

In editing this information, Twitter recommends that your profile name is the real name of the person or the organization, that the profile photo and cover photo accurately represent what you’re about, and that the bio mentions an area of expertise or company mission.

Here’s a pro tip for adding a birthday: When you’re entering the birthday information on the web, click the lock icon to choose who can see your birthday on your profile.

Set your tweets to “public.”

Visit this page in your Twitter security and privacy settings, and make sure the checkbox for “Tweet privacy” is unchecked.

As you’re going through the verification process, Twitter will ask that you be logged in to the account you wish to verify. There will also be a paragraph section toward the end where you get to tell Twitter why you should be verified (this was the most time-intensive part of the process for me). You can share links to support your claim, too, so this might be something you want to think about or plan ahead.

Here’s what the form asks for specifically:

10 Ways to Maximize Your Chances at Getting Verified on Twitter

I was very fortunate to get the favor of the Twitter verified team on my first attempt. I’m still not sure I fully deserve it! However, I was glad to see that a bunch of the pre-work I did to ensure my profile was looking its best seems to have paid off.

twitter-verified-badge

There is no way to know for sure what factors go into the decision to verify a user or not. These are some of the things that I tried for myself and feel might be useful if you’re thinking of giving it a go.

1. Make sure your Twitter profile has been active, consistently, for the past two weeks.

There’s this cryptic bit of advice from Twitter: “Before you apply, take a look at your account to make sure it’s ready.”

What does “ready” mean exactly?

It’s hard to tell, but one possibility might be that a “ready” profile means an active profile.

When I first heard that Twitter was allowing users to request the verified badge, I wanted to do it right away. The only snag: I realized I was in a bit of a Twitter lull and hadn’t posted for a couple weeks. So did a bit of work:

  1. I hopped into Buffer and filled up the Buffer queue for my Twitter account for the next 30 days.
  2. I also made sure that I was actively engaged with my @-mentions and direct messages in the days immediately before and after I submitted the verified form.

I’m not sure to what degree it actually helped. These things tend to matter when we check out Twitter profiles for potential Buffer hires, so my sense is that the Twitter verified team would notice the same!

2. Link to other verified Twitter accounts in your bio.

shayla-price-twitter-profile

This one seems to give a bit of social proof to one’s chances of being verified. Within your Twitter bio, you can @-mention any other profile on Twitter. Bonus: It’s a good practice for writing a great Twitter bio that helps you gain more followers.

If you’re an individual, you can add your current employer, past employers, or connections you have with other members of the Twitter community (“husband to @mywife” or “building a product with @partner”).

If you’re a company, you can mention parent companies or VCs that have funded you.

I was lucky to be able to @-mention Buffer in my bio.

3. For organizations, add numbers and specifics to your Twitter bio.

state-fair-of-texas-twitter

Put your best foot forward by being a bit self-promotional about what you achieved. Here are a few ideas:

  • +3 million customers and counting
  • We’re a $10M startup …
  • Member of the INC 5000
  • celebrating 25 years in business

4. For individuals, use the biggest job title you can in your bio.

ann-mah-twitter-profile

Similar to the above tip for organizations, this one requires that you sell yourself a little. Before I reached out to Twitter, I had my profile listed as “Content @buffer.” I changed it to “Director of marketing @buffer.” Here are a few other semantic changes that might spark some ideas for you:

  • Content marketer = Published at @TNW and @Lifehacker
  • I run a blog = Founder of @ProBlogger

And here are some tips that Neil Patel shared on the Buffer blog:

  • If you started a company, welcome to the ranks of  the “entrepreneur.”
  • If you helped a company, you are a “problem solver.”
  • If you run sometimes, maybe you can be a “fitness guru.”
  • If you give to charity, perhaps you’re a “philanthropist.”

5. For people profiles, add a cover photo that shows you doing something important.

For a long time, I had used an inspiring quote as my cover photo. It looked pretty nice, I thought (thanks to Canva). But it wasn’t quite as powerful or descriptive of a person of “public interest.”

Fortunately, I had the chance to speak at Unbounce’s CTA Conference a few months before, so I added a picture from when I was speaking on stage. John Bonini of Litmus does it really well here, too:

john-bonini-twitter-profile

6. In your “why I should be verified” paragraph, write your pitch with empathy for the Twitter community.

One of the quotes I love from Dale Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and Influence People is this one:

You can make more friends in two months by being interested in them, than in two years by making them interested in you.

It’s spot-on advice for filling out the Twitter verification form and writing the paragraph about why you should be verified. Show an interest in how your being verified can help the Twitter community. Does it help your audience find you easier? Are you often confused with others and are keen to help improve that experience? Are you a business who wants to provide great, fast, trusted support to your Twitter audience?

I took a Dale Carnegie approach with my paragraph for Twitter verification, mentioning how I’d love to be able to connect easier with the people who follow the Buffer blog and the other places where our content is syndicated. I’m not sure how much this approach weighted things for the Twitter team, but it felt like a good step!

7. Be exact with the location in your bio

I’ve seen a lot of clever, original ways that people have used their location field in the Twitter bio. At Buffer, since we’re a fully remote team, we list our location as “Worldwide.”

Other people have chosen a humorous path. My all-time favorite is “Location: Spaceship earth.” ? ?

It’s very possible that the location field doesn’t matter much. I didn’t want to take any chances.

My location was listed as “Idaho,” which I always thought was specific enough since not too many people know specific cities within my sparsely populated state. However, just to play it safe, I went ahead and added the city: Boise, Idaho.

8. Choose a variety of links to submit

Submitting the Twitter verification form reminded me a bit of applying for a job. I wanted to give people the best, broadest sense of how I could be a fit. As a writer, this often means submitting links from a variety of sources where you’ve been published. For Twitter, I went one step further and added conference speaking engagements (both ones from the past and from the future).

Generally-speaking, share as many positive mentions of you or your business, from as many big sources as possible. This could be:

  • Bylines from major websites or publications
  • Author pages at major websites or publications
  • Press you received from major publications
  • Awards
  • Speaking engagements
  • Company profiles

9. You must submit at least two links. Be sure you submit the maximum five links.

Though Twitter lets you submit only two links, you definitely want to maximize this by filling in links for all five spots. Be creative (see the list above).

10. View the list of recently verified users for inspiration

This is one that I wished I had found earlier. The Twitter account @verified follows all the verified accounts on the network. If you click over to their “following” tab, you can see a list of everyone who has recently been verified. The full list is over 215,000 people and companies.

You can scroll this list for ideas and inspiration for what might be worth trying to get verified.

One thing you’re likely to notice: There’s a lot of variety! It seems there might not be any one right way to get verified. My best advice would be to find people or organizations that might be similar to you and take some learnings from the way they pitch themselves.

Another thing you might notice: You don’t have to have thousands of followers to get verified. There are many, many verified profiles with 2,000 or less followers. Don’t let follower count stop you from applying for verification!

Why It’s Important to be Twitter Verified

There are likely to be a lot of obvious benefits to having a verified status on Twitter.

  1. You might get more followers
  2. You’re bound to gain trust and respect from the community
  3. You have one more data point on your being an influencer/authority

There are some immediate platform benefits, too. You can opt out of group DMs, and (this one’s quite cool) you can filter your notifications to include only notifications from other verified users.

verified-users-notifications-tab

It’s this last point that might be the most important.

By being verified, you will always have a closer connection to other verified users. Your likes, replies, and retweets of other verified users can never be hidden.

And to look ahead into the future, this may be an area that Twitter moves toward for everyone. The “Verified” filter is only available to other verified users now, but it’s possible that this could be rolled out to all Twitter users in some form, perhaps even as a filter in the main Twitter stream.

Being verified ensures that your content and your interactions always remain visible for the maximum number of Twitter users possible.

 

As the Nieman Lab pointed out:

“If a significant share of Twitter users were verified, it would be easier for Twitter to make something like “Show notifications and replies only from verified users and people I follow” the Twitter default view.”

It’s a bit early to tell for sure where Twitter may head, though it never helps to get ahead of the curve if you can. Just in case. 🙂

 

Over to you

Does Twitter verification sound like something you might give a try?

If you’ve already tried it out, what was your experience? Any tips to share? Any questions to ask?

I’d love to hear from you in the comments and keep the conversation going there!

Try Buffer and see the difference!
Written by Kevan Lee

Director of marketing at Buffer, the social media publishing tool for brands, agencies, and marketers. We’ve got a new podcast! ?

  • Great article, as usual, Kevan. I submitted a couple weeks ago and haven’t heard anything. I’m happy to say I followed almost all of your advice from above unknowlingly (https://twitter.com/SceneStealrEric) but still haven’t heard anything. Any idea how long it tales or if there’s a way to check the progress of an application? Thanks!

    • Hi Eric! Ah, so cool to know you’ve tried this out already. Interesting, from what I’ve heard, the response time is usually quite fast. I heard back in less than a week. The email came from [email protected] — curious if that might help you search through past emails?

      • Yep. Thanks! Found it. Denied. Might make some more changes and try it again. Cheers!

  • Great article, this is actually something I recently tried, but got rejected :'( my big issue is that I am not sure if I should verify as a person or as a company. I run food blog named NOM NOM Boris and tweet by that name, but also go by this name as my public name. People in the city I live in refer me by that name. So I submitted as a person and got rejected. I do kind of wish they would provide reason. What do you think is the best way to do it when you name is the same as your entity?

    • Ah, great question Boris! Hmm, my hunch would be the same as yours – to start first by applying as a person. Maybe for the next one, you could try as a brand? I think one of the details of the verification process is that you use your real name when applying as a person. It’s possible that Twitter didn’t quite feel that the name was 100% authentic when it reviewed your submission. Just a guess! Hope you have some better results next time 🙂

      • I might have miss read the real person, but I thought it mentioned named that performers use that are not always real, but you are probably right. For external links, do you recommend using 3rd party sites or other online properties of your band like instagram, facebook and etc? One thing I was wondering if there is a need to have a minimum number of followers to get verified. I will try and will let you know if it works.

  • Tess Vismale, CMP, DES

    Congrats on the verification! I always wanted to do it but didn’t. You inspired me. I applied!! Thank you for sharing.

    • Yay, best of luck, Tess!

  • yousufrafi

    I applied 2 weeks ago but haven’t heard from Twitter since. Can you guide me further?

    • Oh no! Sorry about that. Hmm, the email would arrive from [email protected] – might that be helpful for searching your inbox? Mine took less than a week to return, so I’m hopeful yours might be already on the way or hiding somewhere

    • Debbie

      They took almost a month to reject me.

  • Justinho

    Great article and advice. However, I’m looking to verify on behalf of my company’s brand profiles. Twitter asks for a mobile number for verification – so to send a text. What sort of business has a dedicated mobile over land line phone? Other than drug dealers of course.

    • Yikes, sorry about that, Justinho! Sounds like you’re doing all the right steps here. I wonder if the failed registration was a hiccup on Twitter’s side? In our case for the Buffer brand profiles, we use the mobile number of the person who manages our Twitter account (we don’t have a dedicated company mobile phone or a land line). It all seemed to work smoothly for us. I’m hopeful that you see some smooth sailing ahead!

      • Justinho

        Thanks for the further insight. If the number is for verification only, might just use my own mobile. With various brand profiles I manage, was reluctant to use my personal mobile number. Cheers.

    • Sarah Cox

      Have you tried using a Google number, Google Voice? You can set it up to forward to your cell phone, this way your can still receive texts/calls without putting your personal mobile number out to the world.

  • Noel Dávila

    I’ve been turned down twice. I’m assuming, like you mention in your article, that they’re very subjective when it comes to determining what is and isn’t of public interest. Perhaps if I was still writing for an online publication it would make things easier.

    • Oh, interesting, Noel! Yeah the process feels quite subjective after those initial requirements are met – probably some combination of algorithm then humans. Sorry it hasn’t worked out yet? Do you plan on trying again?

      • Noel Dávila

        I will, actually. I’ve been looking to send a proposal to a local free daily newspaper for a column. I’ve also been checking out certain sites I’d like to write for. If anything goes through, I’ll certainly try again. Assuming Twitter needs to see more reach on my behalf, despite the fact that I’ve released music on major digital outlets and my advertising work has been featured on sites like Adweek.

        • Hey Noel, I’ve been turned down twice as well.. and I won’t give up. Right now I think it is something with the official ID photo they require. There is no place in the form where to upload it.

          • Noel Dávila

            That’s true. But I was under the impression that they’d request the picture after they had determined that you qualify. Maybe in the next coming months the whole process will become even more simple.

          • @petrpinkas:disqus @noeldvila:disqus I tried to get verified when they initially opened it up but didn’t get in. After this article, I revamped just about everything, put a plan in place, and submitted my second request today. I still think my chances are slim but I’m in a better situation this time around thanks to this post. That said, I was able to upload my ID this time where I never even saw the field on my first application. It’s at the very bottom of the page, below your submitted links and your paragraphs explaining why you should be verified. I hope it’s a good sign that they wanted my ID right away. I guess I’ll find out in the next week or so.

          • Noel Dávila

            Please let me know how it goes, Mike. Your message has given me hope. All the best.

          • The submit button on the Verification Application page should read “Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.” I got a response in less than 24 hours. No luck. BUT I’ll tweak my explainer, stock up on tweets in Buffer, have another go in 30 days.

          • Noel Dávila

            That’s too bad, Mike. I’m currently prepping another submission. We’ll get there eventually.

          • Noel Dávila

            Just sent in another submission. Oddly enough, I wasn’t prompted to upload my ID.

    • Did you get an email where they told you about being turned down? I didn’t?

      • Noel Dávila

        Yes, about five days later. Second time was just as fast.

  • MarySchaefer

    Thanks for this, Kevan. SOOO helpful. I just completed my application.

  • Jason J. Lewis

    Thanks Kevan, really appreciate your insight on this. Tried about 2 months ago, rejected. Was planning on trying again soon. Question, would the follower/following ration matter at all? I cleaned up mine after my rejection so my followers are lower than who I’m following. Its does seem a little vague on their application what it means to get your profile ready. Always love your articles and insight about social media stuff, and love the buffer app. On an unrelated note, would love to see the buffer app come to windows phone 🙂

    • Hey Jason, good question.What is your ratio by the way? I wonder if that is connected to my rejection as well.

    • Yeah, great point! I would say that the ratio is a subjective data point in some decisions possibly. Feels good to get the ratio to a comfortable balance or slightly tilted in favor of more people following you than you following people. 🙂

  • Sebök Orsolya Noémi

    Thank you for sharing these useful tips, Kevan! I also applied with one of our business accounts. I haven’t got any response yet, but it’s been only a few days since I sent the application form.

    I have a curiosity, maybe someone can answer. Do you receive feedback if your application is rejected?

  • Wondering about the phone number requirement and privacy concerns. Is there any indication or disclosure regarding whether the number would be possibly released to third parties? I generally don’t mind the prospect of ending up on a mailing list, but those are typically easier to get off of than a phone list.

    • Good question, Larry! I believe the phone number is only used for security reasons (if you need a password reset or want to use your phone to log in). There are also some options to receive tweets by phone. I think it’d be quite against the rules for them to sell the number to third parties!

  • Thanks Kevan, very inspiring. I just applied for verification. Crossing fingers.

  • I applied and got rejected. I am an ex journo and marketing person. Perhaps they don’t do quirky. It’s very snobbish, should have mentioned I worked for the BBC and probably got in. Very disappointed in their criteria. Waste of time.

    • Oh no, very sorry to hear it, Simone. Sorry you didn’t get the answer you wanted!

      • It was suspiciously quick, so obviously they do not check one’s LinkedIn profile….

  • We tried some weeks ago when news first broke, but it does seem very subjective as perhaps skewed more to media related figures than verified businesses

    • Hmm, yeah that’s a really good point, Dr. Aron! I could see that being the case, especially if left up to subjective opinion. Will you try again?

  • Shayla Price

    @kevanlee:disqus Thanks for using me as an example. 🙂

    • You bet, Shayla! And congrats!

  • Hi Kevan,

    I received a reply from Twitter within 2 days. I don’t qualify. Here is what they wrote:

    “We reviewed the account, and unfortunately it is not eligible to be verified at this time. Please visit our Help Center for more information about the types of accounts we verify.”

    I guess I will have to change my strategy …

    • Oh, interesting Steve! “Not eligible” … hmm, that makes me think that perhaps something didn’t quite go through on your application? Did they redirect you to the page to see all the requirements? Really sorry for the runaround. Hoping the next try gets you verified!

  • Thanks for sharing these tips, Kevan! I updated my Twitter profile based this article: updated the bio to include verified organizations, created and added a custom header and filled out the form to get verified. I hope to hear back soon!

    • Yay, very excited to hear it, Cheryl. Hope you get some good news!

  • I am about 93,5% sure I’ll be turned down but what the heck? I’ll give it a try. Thanks for taking us through the motions, Kevan!

    • By the way, response time is very good – I’ve just been turned down.

      Working on attempt #2 in six months time 🙂

  • Bruce Maples

    When this article first came out, I gave it a try for our organizational Twitter account, and was rejected. I’m not sure they will even verify organizations (we’re a media company). I may try again, but not sure. The lack of feedback was a problem, too.

  • Razzyness

    I kind of wish it was an easier process. I’ve had various otherp rofiles using my identity and porn blogs that show up with my name sometimes.

  • Kesava Mandiga

    Comprehensive walk through of the entire process! Much appreciated. Cheers!

    Typo – Bylines *from* major websites or publications

  • Thank you @kevanlee:disqus – followed your instructions and voila! Just got verified this past weekend. 😉 http://www.twitter.com/daimanuel

  • Mike J. Asti

    Hey, I’m a sports media professional and seeking verification on Twitter.
    I’ve tried and been denied twice but truly feel I deserve to be
    verified, especially with a person sharing my first and last name not
    being in media in my market. I have a couple questions is anyone at your
    team would be generous enough to answer. First, how do you get Twitter your drivers license or photo ID? I see nowhere in the form to link it.

  • Nalin Asawa

    Hi, whatever I twitted on hashtags, were not visible on live section of hashtags. I was mentioning the hashtag properly . Can someone help me finding the issue

  • Simon Zaku

    Wow! Great Article & Information.

  • Thanks for the article Kevan. I noticed that Twitter requires a copy of a government ID for the verification process, but I can’t find where to do this. Where on the application process do you submit a copy of an ID (i.e. Drivers License) Thanks, John

  • Noel Dávila

    Hi, Kevan. Do you think being a Huffington Post blogger would increase my chances of getting verified? All the best, thanks.

  • rockaffairs

    Just to note: I got my personal account verified without reading this first (fully paid up Buffer user!). Although I included 5 links, I didn’t change my bio (complete joke bio) & I just put “Founder of …” in the more information field – didn’t want to overload them with reasons.

    A verified friend only had around 100 followers at the time, so nothing at all to do with follower count or even F2F ratio. I think they’re strict on the types of industries they’re verifying to be honest, and not every blogger or is going to cut that – at this stage at least. Journalists for publications with paper editions and owners of record labels, however, seem to have an ‘in’ – they’re the type of people that will bring more people to the Twitter platform – or people who are generating a lot of press around what they do. I know of one professional mermaid who got verified for example…

    • I’m a journalist with 15 years in the business with a website and bylines. Still getting turned down for verification.

  • Hey ,
    This is an excellent post . Like your article . Really it’s a educative post there is no confused , Thanks .

  • I’ve been turned down several times, even though the Twitter I account I want to verify is for work in the film industry and it links to the production company I work with and even include my IMDB profile with the the links to films where I have been Assistant Director/Producer etc!

  • Jacob

    Any chance of me as a Football writer and journalist to get this verified badge. I’m sure my account is public interest to get the news about football transfer news. My first request got rejected, and of course I will try again. But that is the question, any chance of me which is just a journalist of football.

  • Aaron Weinbaum

    I’ve tried several times, no success. Can you just tell Twitter I work for Buffer? ?

  • I’ve applied twice (in October and November) and never heard back from Twitter. I regularly check my spam and trash folders, and never received anything at all from them. Do your email settings have to be turned on in Twitter (where you get things like those annoying “here’s what’s happening in your network!” emails) in order for them to send something?

  • Kate Marie Davies

    Ive been applying for Months, no luck. Your article is ace but I still can’t fathom out what I’m doing wrong lol. RealKateDavies (actress)

  • Great!

  • Thanks for sharing this beautiful post! Cheers!

  • Hi Kevan,

    I was looking for a reason to apply for years. So, you are the one who knows better about verification process. Please have a look at my Twitter profile.

    https://twitter.com/iNirodha

    All my followers are real as far as I know and I kept my profile very active since the beginning.

    I’m followed by lot of verified accounts in my niche. Will it help?

    Please spend few minutes from your precious time for me.

    Thanks!

  • I started the account for my business. I found people I knew didn’t realize it was me so I kept the same handle but added my personal name. The followers took off, but could being stuck between a personal and business account be hurting me getting verified? Is one easier to get verified as?

  • Deanna Fry

    I have tried for verification 4 times and I have been denied each time. On the twitter website, it states a copy of a driver’s license would be required for a personal account. I never see a spot to upload one. So on my last attempt, I included a link to a photo of my ID (via Dropbox). Again, denied. I don’t know what I’m going wrong. I am a journalist. I should be verified. Help.

  • Joshua Allen

    Fascinating. Definitely bookmarking this page. Really valuable info, thanks for posting.

  • Mohit

    i have filled the application 3 hours ago how soon shoul i recieve the email..?

  • Sushrut Zemse

    I have completed verification steps yesterday. I haven’t received a mail from twitter that acknowledge me. for example ” thanks for completing verification process, we will get back to you soon”

    If twitter sends acknowledgement mail immediately after verification process?

  • Karthik Music

    Hi Kevan,

    Great information. I tried 3 times. Denied! I don’t know why it’s not working for me even though I followed all the steps with a wikipedia link. Bad luck !!

  • John Smith

    Hi,
    I was turned down my first time applying within 3 days and received an email informing me of this. The next time, I revamped my twitter account and application but have not heard anything back in 2 weeks. Does this mean that I am more likely to be verified soon or that I just didn’t get an email telling me I was rejected?

    Thanks!

  • Elizabeth

    Thanks for the tips, Kevan! Regarding links and website… when you say to use a variety, do you recommend we list links to other social media profiles (i.e. Facebook, Instagram, etc.)? What if those other profiles are verified? (I’m verified on FB but not Twitter.) Same goes for listing our Website? Should we consider listing a different social media account? Thank you!
