Myspace just announced a brand-new feature that I needed to ensure you knew about. It allows individuals to have 1-click access to follow you on Twitter right from your website – the industry huge benefit for building your following with your network and building a great social mass media occurrence using Twitter. twitter favorites
We would definitely recommend placing it up on your website ASAP.
Speaking of Twitter, I want to share some of the behind-the-scenes strategies and techniques that I personally use with Twitter to develop a huge network of faithful, engaging and responsive supporters that allows me to constantly build my list and get new clients.
I’m going to make some assumptions that you are already aware of what Twitter is and how to do some of the fundamentals like find friends, get followers, as well as send improvements, replies, retweets, etc.
These kinds of are some of the greater advanced “systems” I use for leveraging the almost all of what Twitter has to offer.
Friends (you follow) and Followers (follow you). I always suggest hooking up with like-minded people and others you want to hook up with as much as possible. It’s pace, not race. Most quantity of friends or followers is not important. Often those you follow (as a friend) will abide by you back. Having said that, people ask me about auto-following back again those who follow you. My thought is that you simply don’t have to. Auto-follow is rather than an obligation, it’s a choice. There are plenty of followers I have which I don’t follow in return and conversely. If you’re wiling to take the time and effort to manually follow back those who follow you, I’d suggest it (I personally do it. )
Direct Messages. Now i am a huge fan of using DM’s to hook up with my followers and friends. Sending an immediate message is quick and easy many ALWAYS gets a response. Now, I am just very active and interesting on Twitter so people I interact with DM’s often be the same. However it’s occasionally more effective and efficient than sending emails for things like making introductions and connecting.
Favorites. I prefer Myspace favorites on a regular basis for tagging as favorites other twitter updates I want to read later but just no longer have time. It’s kind of like email directories for Twitter. See a tweet you like with a link but no longer have time to read it now? Mark it as a favorite and carve out time later to refer back to it.
Lists. I have lists to help classify and organize my Facebook friends. With 55, 500 plus friends it’s hard for me to certainly read EVERY tweet that comes out – it can insane. So, I use Twitter Lists to group relevant friends in plus and then review those lists together. I have some for friends, brands, skiing and even locked (hidden) lists for things like competitors, prospects, and so forth.
Search. Twitter search is a great tool for finding content and possible connections (friends and followers). You can search by hashtag (#) and see relevant tweets to that topic or perhaps do a general search for “Internet Marketing” and see all the tweets and dialogue about this topic. By there, jump on in and get tweeting.
