Twitter is one of the most popular social media platforms in existence. If you leverage it properly, you could have a steady stream of leads flowing into your network marketing business. However, there is definitely a right way and a wrong way to do it.
The last thing you want to do is be unprofessional and come across as a spammer. My objective is to help you AVOID doing that.
In the paragraphs below, I’m going to share ten of my favorite Twitter tips for promoting my network marketing business. Let’s get started.
# 1 Pick a Catchy Name/Login – You want a good user id, one that is easy to remember and catchy. You can use your name or something that will resonate and stick with people. Put some serious thought into what you want to name your account.
# 2 Make a Good Profile Page – Make sure you update your profile page in the back office. Post a good photo of yourself. Provide a link to your website. Make sure it looks professional. Get input from a few other entrepreneurs and network marketers to make sure your page is set up right and looks professional.
# 3 Send FREQUENT Tweets – You definitely want to TWEET frequently, at least five to ten times per day. You don’t have to hundreds per day, but pick a frequency that you can manage and be disciplined enough to stick with it. Only you can decide what the right amount of tweets is.
# 4 Support Other Twitter Users – One of the smartest things you can do is connect with other network marketers on Twitter. Look for people in your same company and look for other industry leaders that you can follow. Follow them and re-tweet some of their posts. Send them personal messages. Provide value and help them out. It’s amazing how a little generosity will come back to you ten fold.
# 5 Always Provide Value – Don’t be a Twitter spammer. Always provide value. Tweet inspirational quotes, neat memes and photos, a thought for the day, training tips. testimonials and other things that DRAW people in and make them want to connect with you. If you just try to sell, you will turn people off and people will block you or stop following you.
# 6 Focus on Educating Not Selling – This tip goes hand-in-hand with the previous tip. Always focus on educating others and providing value. You have to give before you can get. Use attraction marketing and position yourself as an expert. This will naturally attract others to you and people will want to know more about what you are doing (because you educated and helped them).
# 7 Synchronize Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Your Blog – If you have your own blog, or other social media outlets, synchronize everything. Whenever you post a new blog post, set it up so it automatically sends out a tweet. Whenever you update Facebook or YouTube, have it send out a Tweet to share your new content. This saves you time and lets you work smart.
# 8 Be Consistent – You have to be consistent. You have to send out tweets every single day for a period of months, maybe years, before you will build up a huge following. Sticking with it is more than half the battle. Come up with a simple game plan, set aside some time each day to get it done, and have enough disicpline to stick with it.
# 9 Follow 10-20 New People a Day – Another smart move is to simply connect with and follow 10-20 people a day. Target people and groups with certain demographics and interests and start following them. Many of these folks will follow you in return as a token of their appreciation.
# 10 Keep an Eye on Who Is Talking About You – There are many different software programs you can use to see who is talking about you on Twitter. Follow them closely every day and keep a close eye on what people are saying. Chime in on the conversations and add more value to the conversation.
I know none of these tips are rocket science, but they are effective. I personally don’t think Twitter is the best way to generate MLM Leads or build your network marketing business, but I know it can supplement whatever else it is you are doing. Best of all, if you follow the advice mentioned above, you should be able to do it in less than 20 minutes a day.
