Do you use Twitter?
If so, you may use Twitter to communicate with friends and family.
This is the most common use of this online service; however, Twitter can be used for much more.
When properly used, Twitter is an effective internet marketing tool.
Hearing that Twitter is a great internet marketing tool is nice, but you may want to know why.
Please continue reading on for five reasons why you, as an internet marketer, should use Twitter.
1 – Large Market
Twitter is rapidly increasing in popularity.
In fact, there are well over 2 million members, if not more.
This gives you access to a large audience.
Yes, you will not communicate will all members, but the possibility of doing so is amazing.
To find contacts, search Twitter, ask for information exchanges online, and search for members based on email address, name, and location.
Of course, you can add anyone to your list of contacts, but aim for your targeted market.
If you are a selling a product, who will buy it?
Find those people on Twitter.
2 – Easy to Converse
At first glance, Twitter may seem a little overwhelming.
Initially, it only appears as if you can add friends and family. This is not true.
As previously stated, search Search.Twitter.com to find interesting conversations and reply.
This is an easy way to make contact with those you do not know on a personal level.
In addition to responding to messages on Search.Twitter.com, you send Tweets or updates to your followers.
When you are following other members, you receive their Tweets or updates.
It is easy for you to respond with a reply.
3 – Generate Interest
When you Tweet about a product or service you sell, it is easy to generate interest.
The more interesting your product or service is, the more interest will be generated.
For example, many are now concerned with the environment.
Do you sell eco-friendly products online?
Send Tweets outlining a product you sell and ask for feedback.
This not only generates clicks, but it may result in a sale.
Plus, people forward and share what they like on Twitter.
4 – Easy to Avoid Sounding like Advertisements
There are no rules against advertising on Twitter.
There are rules on spam.
For that reason, avoid sending large, bulky unsolicited advertisements.
For example, encourage people to view your latest blog post, but do so no more than twice a day.
Any more and your Tweets may be classified as spam.
To increase your success, cleverly write your Tweets.
It is easy to make advertisements appear like they aren’t even advertisements at all.
Instead of listing that product and its selling price, briefly discuss it and ask for feedback.
This still gets consumers to view the product, but without the pressure to buy.
5 – It Is Free
Of course, Twitter is free to use.
All you need is a mobile phone or internet connection.
It is also easy to get started.
Simply just create a username, password, and provide your email address.
I recommend that you complete your profile bio, and then you are ready to start marketing.
The above mentioned reasons are just five reasons why you should give Twitter a try.
While many use Twitter solely for social purposes, you can easily turn it into an effective internet marketing tool.
