Twitter Marketing - Secrets For Promoting Your Business


3 Ways You Can Enhance Your Twitter Experience

By Lisa Bacala

If you use Twitter on the web by itself there's 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. After reading this article, you'll learn of 6 ways that you can enhance your Twitter experience.

1. Use Twitter in combination with other networking sites

This is absolutely critical. That is why it is listed first. You should never put all your eggs in the same basket. What if something happens to Twitter? What if it's down for maintenance? What if there are just too many tweeps on at once and you keep seeing the fail whale (that's what happens when you can't 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 or LinkedIn. I recommend putting your Facebook profile on your Twitter page as your website. That way when people follow you on Twitter, they'll 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. Don't send them commercial messages unless they sign up for your email list. That's considered spam. You can send them messages that you'd send to your friends. It's great to email your Twitter friends information that will help them with their business. They'll be extremely grateful to you for sending them wondeful information and it will seem more personal because you sent it right to them instead of blasting it to the whole Twitterverse!

2. Use Twitter +twitwall to market your telecalls.

Twitwall is an excellent service to use to market your telecalls. Every Twitter user gets a twitwall. You'd 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. You'd 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 won't do it unless you tell them to most of the time.

3. 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 that's 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. It's important to both participate in and throw Twitter parties because it's 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 I've mentioned will only improve the amount and quality of the traffic you get to your website.
