Any Benefits from Twitter Marketing?

Discussion in 'Social Networks' started by snogglemedia, Feb 9, 2011.

    I haven't done much Twitter marketing but it seems like it doesn't work well unless you already have a huge following. It's difficult to garner new supporters and unless you can get 100+ retweets it's difficult to see much traffic from it. TweetMeme is a huge source but, again, is very closed-off from the average publisher.

    Any heroic tales or stories of success from Twitter marketing? Has anybody had a story go popular on Tweetmeme and seen any good traffic numbers? Would love to hear reports.

    It takes time to see some good results on your twitter marketing. You have to continuously update you twitter profile with useful posts so that more people will become interested to follow you. You should also follow the people who may have an interest to your offered services and reply to their tweets.

    I don't rely on tweetmeme, the way to increase twitter followers is to start following your target audiences and wait for them to follow you back, you can do it manually or automatically, you can use a tool called "tweetadder" to find target audiences on twitter and auto follow them, I use it. Gaining followers is only one thing, you need to interact with your followers and participate to the conversation, keep your twitter profile "alive" by posting unique, valuable and relevant tweets regularly. This works in a long run. My twitter followers grow steadily through this way. Hope it helps.

    In terms of website traffic,social media might not be the main source, focus on targeting right people and building relationship first, it will help and boost your traffic more or less in future.

    You have to find real followers, in your target niche and to post interesting content.

    I agree, you need to post good content, not just promote a product or website all the time. Tweet something that will add value to others. I like to use motivational quotes and personal developement type messages. This gets me a steady increase in followers.

    Twitter marketing helps to increase traffics but for that to happen, you have to have enough people following you and you follow back.

    I think most people like to use facebook more as a friendly, social, interacting, kind of site. I know that I keep facebook more for people I actually know in real life. And twitter is where I get followers that I don't know. I feel a bit weird advertising to my FB friends anyway.

    Use some soft for following tons of guys by searching your keywords and niche, then some of them will automatically follow back to you and voila! - You have visitors and retweets to your site with every tweet sent to them!

    We've had some fairly good success with our own Twitter campaigns so I would definitely look into it and consider going into it :)

    Through Twitter, I was able to form online relationships with people in same and complementary fields. I was able to make connections with graphic and web designers as well as those who are knowledgeable about branding, marketing and even SEO. Through these connections, I was not only able to gain more traffic for my site but I was also able to gain additional knowledge that could help in the services I provide.
