Everyone uses Twitter, whether for business or personal, there is always someone tweeting about something. Because of the huge popularity of Twitter it has amazing benefits as a business marketing tool.
Here are our top tips of using the Twitter network to market your business.
That is the great advantage of Twitter is that you can tweet a question and receive answers almost immediately. If there is something on your website or about your business that you think can be approved on, you can tweet about it and as your followers for their opinions.
Participate in Networking
Building relationships with customers and potential customers is the key to any successful business. With Twitter you can network with thousands of people worldwide in your chosen niche.
Many marketers will tell you that the money is in the list and this is very true. Twitter can be used in much the same way as a subscriber list; although your messages are much shorter than what you would send in an email, you are still able to send out messages to hundreds of people in one go. So if you build a big list of followers on Twitter then you will have a huge number of potential customers to market to.
Build a Reputation
If you build a good reputation in your niche then you will brand yourself and your business and will soon find that your followers will recommend you to their friends. You can gain a lot more followers and potential customers by friend referrals.
Having a good reputation and being seen as an expert in your field is a great way to build your customer base and make sales. Many customers will come to you already prepared to buy from you if they have been given a good recommendation.
When you have a list of followers on Twitter that are all targeted customers for your niche, then you can market your product or website directly to those followers.
You can promote your website to your followers by sending out tweets on a regular basis. The important thing to remember is not to send out spammy tweets as this is the fastest way to lose your followers. Send out tweets that offer a little bit of information with a link to your website where they can find out more.
You can also include a link to your website in your profile on Twitter and you would be surprised at the number of people that will visit your website through this link.
Having the ability to interact this way with your followers is also a great way to build your relationship and trust with them which is essential for a successful business.
Twitter is one of the best marketing tools available for any Internet Marketer and it is simple and free to use. If you have a personal Twitter account then I do recommend starting a new one solely for your business so you can build up your followers list based on your niche. You will soon see your business grow and become successful very quickly if you use this marketing tool correctly.
