Twitter has had its fair share of ups and mostly downs lately, but if you think Twitter had its problems now, wait until every second person on Twitter is trying to sell you an ebook, because the internet marketers have discovered Twitter.
This email from well known ebook salesman John Reese:
If you haven’t yet created a Twitter account you’re really missing out.
This service has exploded in growth in the past few months and I don’t see it slowing down anytime soon. There are now MILLIONS of users and it’s becoming mainstream.
I’ve been running some interesting tests and I’m already seeing some great traffic results — far greater than the traffic from Facebook or any other “Web 2.0” service.
Facebook and the others certainly have their place, but Twitter is more powerful. At first I didn’t really “get it” but now I do and my traffic stats don’t lie. IT WORKS.
As a communications tool, Twitter is probably only 2nd to Email right now. It’s a great way to network with people as well as to drive visitors to any of your sites, blog posts, etc.
BUT DON’T WAIT…
Create a Twitter account NOW and start ‘following’ people you want. Others will eventually follow you in
return. Observe how others post and you’ll quickly learn the culture, etiquette, and uses for Twitter.
It’s not rocket science. In fact, it’s a lot of fun.
You really need to start today because the sooner you start the sooner your followers list will start growing and more people will see your posts — which will then virally grow from there.
MAKE SURE TO FOLLOW ME!
(I’m actively posting all the time.)
Create an account then go here: http://twitter.com/johnreese
Click the “Follow” link that shows under my photo.
That’s it. Everytime I post you’ll see it in your main “timeline” area.
* After you click to “Follow” me look at the right-hand side of my profile page. Click the blue “Followers” link and you can see all the people currently following my posts. Follow some of these other marketers so you can get involved.
Twitter is extremely VIRAL. When you make posts (called “tweets”) they can be exposed to all the friends (followers) of others. Then they can choose to follow you.
I think Twitter is going to really evolve into a “must use” marketing tool. It’s a great way to announce you’ve just made a new blog post, released a new product, or anything else you’re up to.
I’m already seeing 400+ visitors each time I make a tweet that I’ve made a new blog post.
So trust me, this is no flash in the pan. In fact, this may be one of the most powerful marketing
tools ever — it just depends how it evolves.
But so far you’d be crazy not to use it. It’s producing great results.
Take 2 minutes to create an account — heck you’ll want to do it now so you can at least get your name before someone else takes it. Or your company or product name, etc.
Just go to http://www.twitter.com
Then visit my page at:
And click “Follow” that is displayed under my photo.
(That’s all there is to it.)
See you on Twitter!
* You’ll definitely want to be following me on Twitter because I’m going to be doing some really cool stuff with it soon.
