Top 3 Twitter Tips

Top 3 Twitter Tips

1. Don’t Follow Every John & Jane Doe!

Those who use Twitter to market their business, will often be interested in increasing the number of followers they have. One of the most recommended ways of getting a good following is to follow every «John or Jane Doe» in the hopes they’ll follow you back. To be totally honest… this is pointless. You are better served having 100 followers who share your interests as opposed to 1000 followers who are not interactive and not concerned.

Don’t Make The Mistake…… It Can Cost You!

2. Copy Successful Tweeters!

Starting out you need to look at the successful tweeters and see how they’re doing things. You don’t have to copy everything they do. Take note and pay attention to how they do things. Doing this will help you to figure out where you’re probably going wrong and what you need to improve on.

3. How To Get Ignored On Twitter
Talk About Yourself – There is nothing that will keep you from getting ReTweeted like talking about yourself constantly. It will probably also prevent you from getting many followers.
Don’t Ask for the ReTweet – Like any form of marketing, calls-to-action matter in social media. So if you don’t want ReTweets, don’t ask for them, and especially don’t ask for them politely.
Dumb it Down – Twitter is a fairly literate, intelligent audience. When you’re avoiding ReTweets, you need to avoid saying anything too smart, so use only small, simple words.
Don’t Include a Link – People love using Twitter to spread links to content they liked. So don’t give them the opportunity. If you don’t want ReTweets, be sure you’re not Tweeting interesting links.
Say the Same Things Everyone Else is – If you say only the same things everyone else is saying, you’ll avoid any risk of being worth ReTweeting. It’s easy, just agree with everyone around you and work hard to never bring anything original to the table.
Don’t Talk About Twitter – Twitter users like Twitter, and they like talking about it. Tweeting about Twitter will make people want to ReTweet you, so don’t!
Use TinyURL – TinyURL was invented before Twitter and isn’t really built for 140-character messages. It will use up precious characters that will make it harder for your followers to ReTweet you. Perfect.
Use Only Semi-colons – You’re smart enough to know how to use a semi-colon, right? Stick to them and avoid other kinds of punctuation like the plauge (they’re all highly-ReTweetable).

6 Step Twitter Traffic System

6 Step Twitter Traffic System

There is no doubt that Twitter is one of the hottest items on the internet right now. For Internet Marketers, it is also a great opportunity to expand your business. However, if you’re new to Twitter you might be wondering where to start. That’s why I’ve put together a simple 6 step approach you can take to start getting some great results on Twitter. Let’s get started!

1. Follow People In Your Niche

If you know anything about marketing on Twitter you have most likely heard that it’s ultra-important to have a ton of followers. That’s true, but I have a slight twist on that. If at all possible, you should make an effort to get targeted followers instead of just getting a ton of followers. The best way to start doing that is to start following people in your niche. Many of the people you choose to follow will follow you back.

2. Provide Quality Content To Your Followers

Now that you have your followers you might be thinking that it would be a great idea to start churning out posts with links to your promotions. Don’t! Let me put it this way. If you go into a bar and start kissing the first girl you find attractive without talking to her first what do you think is going to happen? That’s right she’s probably going to slap you in the face. So you have to show your followers that you deserve their intention. You do this by posting links to content that is relevant to them. Make sure it’s quality content. The girl in the bar is unlikely to kiss you if you throw cheesy lines at her. It’s the same with your Twitter followers.

3. Search For Questions People Have About Your Niche

So you’ve built a relationship with your followers and feel that they trust you by now. So now is the right time to send those promotional tweets right? Wrong!

At this point, you should start making some searches on Twitter where people are asking questions that are relevant to your niche.

4. Create Content Answering The Questions You Found

Now that you have a bunch of questions you need to provide some high quality answers. So to this you need to create a blog post, an article  or a video that answers the question. Make sure that it’s a useful answer that people will get a lot of value from. In addition, make sure that you plug your product at the end of whatever type of content it is you provide.

5. Answer The Questions People Have About Your Niche

Finally, and you may have guessed this. It is time to send a reply to the user who asked the question. Make sure it’s a reply and not a direct message. A reply will show up on all your followers’ timelines as well as the timeline of the user who asked the question. That should ensure that it won’t only be the user who asked the question who clicks on the link in your answer.

6. Rinse And Repeat

The final step is to start over and do it all again, at least from step 3. You should, however, continue to gather targeted followers.

In the long run, you shouldn’t lock yourself into only one Twitter strategy though. Go and take a look at to get advanced Twitter strategies you can apply today!
