How To Get Traffic Twitter
Getting visitors to your website is one of the areas where most bloggers and website owners fall flat on their butt. Building back links is a pain in the rear, and in the present internet climate – it can sometimes do your website a lot more harm than good.
A good place to market your website is Twitter. If you’re looking for a free, yet viable source of traffic, Twitter is definitely one source you certainly do not want to overlook. Although Twitter is relatively small in when compared to Facebook and YouTube as a means of social networking, using it as a traffic source is quite feasible for your web site.
The reason I tell you this is because using Twitter can do just as well in lieu of specifically targeting product and web site niches. Read on for more info on how to increase Twitter traffic to your blog.
At first it will take a little bit of work to actually gain traffic using the Twitter platform. However I can assure you that it is indeed well worth the efforts involved. And before we proceed, I should warn you that there are a few discrepancies about using Twitter and having your account shut down.
How Many Twitter Users Should You Follow?
Some internet marketers suggest that you shouldn’t follow any more than 50 new users per day, while others state that you shouldn’t follow any more than 200 Twitter users per day. Personally, I have tried both and have not had any issues. But so as not to assume risk, I would stay at a happy medium of only following 100 Twitter users per day.
They also suggest that these same rules should apply should you elect to unfollow other Twitter users. Again I suggest sticking within the happy medium of unfollowing 100.
Are There Maximum Tweets Per Day?
What nobody has really discussed is, the maximum tweets you can post per day. So although I see a lot of people tweeting their little hearts out every few minutes, I am currently unable to determine if there is a maximum of tweets you can post without having your account shut down. My suggestion would be to keep it to a happy medium as well, just to be on the safe side.
Naming Your Twitter Account
The Twitter account you set up should be named in relation to the name of your web site, product or service. This way it is key-worded better and thus it will make it easier for people to find you easier and know what exactly it is that you are offering. After you have set up your account, you can begin searching out followers that are looking for what you are offering.
So, for example, if you are selling video games, then look for people that actually play video games and you may also want to tie in walk through guides to sell in relation to the games. There are literally hundreds of these types of products that you can sell as an affiliate. I do know that Clickbank has a whole heap of them – especially in relations to World of Warcraft games in general.
Getting New Twitter Followers
When you are searching out your followers, you want to ensure that they are indeed active and at times this can be a little bit tricky. Take into consideration that some people have a tendency to post on Twitter in spurts and often do not check their accounts every single day. The best way to sort out active, inactive, semi active etc. followers is to create lists, so this way you can determine when to pitch your product in your tweets.
I personally only allot for a five day time span in determining whether or not I am going to keep following that particular person. If after 5 days, I have not seen any tweets from them, I unfollow them, thus keeping my potential followers to an active list.
