Using Twitter To Market Your Business
wayne 26 Views
What is Twitter? Are you kidding? Twitter is the hottest site on the Internet today . It is taking the Internet by storm and there are around 10,000 new users per day signing up to participate in this internet revolution. Just pause and think about the marketing opportunities that are available to the Twitter user. […]
Twitter is best described as a micro blogging platform. You are limited to 140 characters each time you do an update, which initially, may seem a small amount. However, as you become more experienced, it’s just amazing what you can fit into 140 characters.
That said, Twitter more than a passing fad. It’s kind of like one huge global chat room. It all depends on how many people you follow on Twitter and how you use it. If it’s in the thousands, then your “Tweetstream” will be running fast and furious with everything that’s coming in. If you are only following a few hundred, or even less, then things are much easier to keep up with.
You can use Twitter to market your business and make fast twitter profits. Actually, when effectively used, Twitter can be a great advocate and help to your entrepreneurial endeavors. Whatever you do, at no stage of your Twitter career start posting sales tweet after sales tweet. Your career will be short-lived if you do and people will unfollow you very quickly. Twitter is about supplying marketing information to those that wish to follow you. A steady flow of self promotion diminishes the experience and your authority. By all means use Twitter post links to your products or sites, but keep them to around 5% to 7% of your total tweets at the most.
You need to first be aware that rushing out and following a heap of people can make you look like a potential Twitter spammer. Please build the people you follow slowly . As time goes on, if you are chasing quantity, then you will be able to add more at a time, but initially I would suggest you stick to 50 for a start. Basically when you follow people, they feel obligated to follow you back .
Many people don’t do this automatically, although some do, particularly in the internet marketing space. Some people will actually go and look at your Twitter home page to decide if you are worth following. The time you spent setting up your profile really pays off here.
Getting leads with Twitter can make or break your offline and online marketing. Do it right and reap the benefits. I’m talking about leads, traffic and sales. Do it wrong and you’ll just be another annoying spammer.
