TWITTER 101 – LEARNING THE BASICS
Twitter is a great way to connect with family, friends and business associates. Here are a few things you need to do when you set up your Twitter account.
1 Create your profile. Help people understand what you’re all about and why they should follow you. You can include a link to your site within your profile. Include a nice picture to represent your business or add your own mug.
2. Don’t spam. Think of Twitter as a way to help people, not spam your affiliate products in their face. Retweet helpful information you find on the web. Tweeting things of value is a good way to build a good rep among your Tweeting followers.
3. Follow to be followed. Follow people that deliver worthy Tweets of interest, and they will appreciate your worthy Tweets as well. If you want to be followed, you need to find people to follow first. Don’t get all caught up into the greedy Tweeters who try to tell you how to use and abuse your Twitter followers just to sell products or information.
4. Inspire and communicate. Since you’ve been smart and are following experts in your field or niche, feel free to ask questions. Be kind and helpful. It’s not just about YOU. Twitter is about sharing and communicating relevant information.
5. Tweet your blog posts. Gotta WordPress blog? Use the TweetMe plugin and Tweet your blog posts to your followers.
