Practical Tips for Twitter Marketing Newbies
Before you jump on the Twitter bandwagon, you need to learn the basics, and this list of five practical Twitter tips will help you do just that. Start at the beginning and adjust your profile; find the right people to follow and then send messages that are useful -- not spammy.
1. Personalize Your Twitter Profile
When you create a profile on Twitter, you can customize several areas of the page to give your Twitter account a unique, personal style. You should always edit your Twitter profile to display relevant and interesting information about yourself or business.
In your Twitter settings you can access your Twitter profile and change information for the following: your picture, your name, location, Web address and bio. Your Twitter profile acts as your publicly displayed information on Twitter, and it can also be found in Web search results. Be sure to include accurate information so people can find you easily when they search Twitter or search the Web.
2. Build a Relevant Twitter Following
One way to build a good Twitter list is to find the people who are involved in conversations related to your own main topic of discussion. For example, I mainly tweet about ecommerce and technology on Twitter. To find like-minded twitterers, I typically search for ecommerce and similar keywords and see what users are tweeting about. When I spot Twitter users (such as ecommerce business owners, ecommerce marketers, ecommerce vendors and so on) who send out interesting messages, I follow them.
These are the people who tweet things I will retweet (RT) because it is closely related to my main topic. We share a common interest with me, and they're most likely to follow me in return and potentially retweet my own messages. This is one way to build a good, relevant Twitter following.
