Millions of people are now using Twitter, a social network, and yet, there are still many others who are not familiar with this hot micro-blogging site. In case you don’t know what Twitter is all about, just read on to find out more information about it.
When Twitter was launched about three years ago, young individuals used the site to keep track of their friends’ activities. Personal messages were easily sent through tweets. The tweets were only limited to 140 characters and so it was also referred to as micro-blogging. You can write anything on the tweets – you can share your feelings, the things that you’re currently doing or just about to do, or perhaps you can also post certain topics that might interest others. As the social site became more popular, businesspersons saw its potential as a marketing tool. Some of them were able to enhance their business although there are also those who failed.
The basic idea when using Twitter is to follow interesting people. Once you follow a certain individual, you will receive their tweets. When someone follows you, you can check that person’s profile and decide if you want to follow him/her back. You can use the tool ‘TweetLater’ so that your account will automatically follow those who follow you.
With the use of such tool, your personal thank you message is automatically sent as well. When sending messages or tweets, make sure that you generate prompt action. If your tweets are interesting, you can easily draw more followers. This is quite helpful when you’re posting blogs or when you’re into internet marketing.
Did you know that you can have thousands of followers in Twitter? If you want to send tweets, you don’t have to do it manually because certain tools can be used to automatically send your messages to all your followers, no matter how many they are. Most of the Twitter tools are free and so you can have fun for as long as you like.
Online businesses are really popular these days and one way to get valuable leads is through Twitter. In order to build a valuable list of prospects, you should make friends first. Having lots of friends or followers can ensure your online business success. Once you have a lot of followers, you can now mention about your business and the programs that you’re planning to launch. You can provide links to your business or your programs and if they trust you, they will not hesitate to check out the links.
You can also use Twollo. This is another free Twitter tool that you can use to follow some targeted individuals. All you need to do is to provide the subject or topic that interests you and the tool will find people who are also talking about the said topic or subject. If those individuals are interested, they might follow you as well.
When you follow someone, there is no guarantee that he/she will follow you back. Always check your stats. When you’ve followed 2,000 people, your followers should at least be 1,800; if not, you will not be allowed to follow more individuals. When someone is not following you, ‘unfollow’ that person; cleaning your account weekly is a great idea. You can use ‘friendorfollow.com’ in order to complete such task.
Have a fun Twitter experience by using some of their free tools.
