How To Greatly Enhance Your Overall Twitter Experience
Twitter is all the rage this year. It is becoming more unlikely that you have not at least heard someone mention it in passing. It seems as though that everyone is getting on twitter these days. People like Oprah and Ashton Kutcher have amassed huge followings recently. And so many are finding twitter as a very valuable tool for business.
If you use Twitter on the web by itself theres already a lot of things that you can do to promote your business. However there are several other ways that you can enhance your Twitter experience. In this article you are going to discover 3 ways that you can enhance your Twitter experience.
First; Use Twitter in combination with other networking sites
This is absolutely critical. Thats why it is listed first. You should never put all your eggs in one basket so to speak. You always want to have a veriety of ways to stay connected in case something were to happen to twitter. Such as; What if its down for maintenance? What if there are just too many tweeps on at once and you keep seeing the fail whale thats what happens when you cant load twiter? There is a service called tweetake which allows you to download your followers favorites tweets dms everything you need to talk to your Twitter family outside of Twitter. I suggest you download this file from tweetake daily. Another thing you should do is invite your friends to join you on Facebook LinkedIn or an awesome site that will keep you very connected is Friendfeed.com. It has over 50 services that you can link and keep up with all in one place. I also recommend putting your Facebook profile on your Twitter page as your website. That way when people follow you on Twitter theyll go right to your Facebook page and follow you there too. Find an email address for your Twitter posse so you can send emails to them. Dont send them commercial messages unless they sign up for your email list. Thats considered spam so dont be a spammer. You can send them messages that youd send to your friends. Its great to email your Twitter friends information that will help them with their business. Theyll be extremely grateful to you for sending them wonderful information and it will seem more personal because you sent it right to them instead of blasting it to the whole Twitterverse! Your goal is to build what I am calling valuable Twitterships I dont know if anyone else has coined that one. Its just ralationships on twitter
Second; Use Twitter twitwall to market your telecalls.
Twitwall is an excellent service to use to market your telecalls. Every Twitter user gets a twitwall. Youd use your twitwall when you have things that are more than 140 characters to post. You can use your twitwall to promote your telecalls very easily. Youd just post the relevant information to the twitwall and then retweet it. Important: Be sure to include the words please retweet in the headline when you post information about your telecall. Even though twitwall makes it easy for people to retweet your information they wont do it unless you tell them to most of the time.
Third; Twitter Hashtag Tweetchat = PARTY!
Another great way to get people talking about you and your business is to hold a Twitter party! Twitter parties are very easy to set up. All you have to do is create a hashtag for your party. Basically a hashtag acts a tracker for your party. Once you decide on a hashtag next pick a date and a time. Then start telling everyone thats in your Twitter family about your party and ask them to retweet the information for you. On the day of the party you can use tweetchat to follow everything everyone is saying about the party. Tweetchat is awesome because once you go to the website and log in it automatically inserts the hashtag and tells you how many characters you have left to tweet with. It also allows you to momentarily stop the chat within the chat room so you can scroll back and see what was said before you enter the room. Its important to both participate in and throw Twitter parties because its a great way to get the word out about your business and you can meet new people that are interested in the same things that you are interested in.
Twitter is a great tool to use to drive traffic to your website. These things that Ive mentioned will only improve the amount and quality of the traffic you get to your website.
