The Twitter revolution took off last year with millions of users tweeting their thoughts to the world, the majority of them complete rubbish. I really don’t care that you had cornflakes for breakfast or that your coffee was cold, I’ve a lot more things to worry about in life which are actually important. But Twitter continues to grow, maybe not as fast as it was but it still has millions of users and thats a big audience that you can promote yourself and your products to.
Everybody is trying to get as many followers as they possibly can on Twitter so they can market their product, website or blog. There are countless schemes out there that people try and actually spend money on in order to get a couple of thousand followers on Twitter. Desperate Twitters can spend hours following every random person in the hope that they get some follows back, and yes while this does increase your followers, they’re generally not your target audience.
But there is away to promote yourself on Twitter without having thousands of followers, and whats more you will be promoting yourself to your target audience.
It’s quite simple really just follow these steps:
On the Twitter homepage there is a search bar, it’s also on your twitter profile page.
So for example, say your trying to promote a page you have on a review of “Call Of Duty” or your trying to sell “Call Of Duty” merchandise. Simply type in ” Call Of Duty ” into the search bar ( you can add -http to prevent other links from showing up )
This search will bring up a list of people talking about your chosen topic, so obviously they have some interest in it, therefore they are your target market.
Stalicious1 for example is playing COD on the PS3,
And there you have it, it’s as easy as that, “Stalicious1″ will now see this reply on his twitter page, and so will everyone else who visits his page and the chances are you will get a few clicks and maybe even some sales.
Do this with multiple users, people are more likely to read and pay attention to their @ replies more than private messages that you send them, also everyone else can see their @ replies, giving you even more exposure. Even more you may get some extra followers as well.
