Twitter has become one of the most popular Micro Blogging platforms online.
We read everywhere how people are making money online with this Twitter trend, how you can instantly increase website traffic with a simple tweet, as many people call these posts, but unless you know exactly how to do this the right way, most people simply get frustrated with twitter after a short time, and simply stop using twitter completely.
I’m going to give you some tips that I have learned that will help you get more twitter followers, get more people clicking your links that you post on twitter, and hopefully, help to show you how you can earn a few extra affiliate commissions from twitter marketing some affiliate products.
What Is MicroBlogging?
This is what Wikipedia explains microblogging to be;
“Microblogging is a form of multimedia blogging that allows users to send brief text updates or micromedia such as photos or audio clips and publish them, either to be viewed by anyone or by a restricted group which can be chosen by the user. These messages can be submitted by a variety of means, including text messaging, instant messaging, E-mail, digital audio or the web.”
MicroBlogging is a great way to get short updates out to people about a particular topic or niche, so how can we use Twitter to our advantage to get more traffic and people to our websites?
How To Get Targeted Followers On Twitter!
First things first, we need to get targeted people to follow us that are interested in our niche, and to do this properly, it is not about following hundreds of other people as you may have been told by others, or read online, it’s about posting targeted tweets related to a topic or niche that you are involved in. You want people to find you first, then you follow them back, so how can we do this? Well let me explain…
If your related niche is about Internet marketing, simply posting tweets with the words “Internet Marketing” or “Affiliate Marketing” will instantly get you a dozen or so targeted twitter followers in a very short time. Now just because this works great, don’t think that you can simply post those words dozens of times per day, you still need to be helpful to others in your posts, ask questions about your topic, etc, and your twitter followers will increase.
Getting Traffic From Twitter
Having a huge list of twitter followers is not the only way to get people to visit your web site, many people use the Twitter Search Tool to find people to follow, market research, etc. When you make your tweets with links to affiliate products, or to your own blog, those people will click over to your web site. Depending on how many other tweets there are related to your post, and how popular your topic is you are posting about, you can increase website traffic instantly to your website.
I have at times had upwards of 300 new people click through on one of my links I posted in under an hour. This does not happen all the time, but it does happen.
I hope this has helped you some.
