When you join an online opportunity and become an entrepreneur you need customers and sign-ups. To get them you need an email list. This is why there are so many articles on the Internet about list building and why safe lists were once so popular.
First, it is important to get your message in front of a lot of people and with that comes how often your message is seen by them. So your reach and the frequency is paramount to your success as an online marketer. You can reach many people at Twitter.
When you setup your Twitter account you can brand yourself by using the name of your business as your I.D. While setting it up, check the options to be notified when you receive a direct message and when a person starts following you. In your bio describe your business and something about you. For example, give the name of your business and ask the reader to follow you to get a free widget. In other words, to get whatever free item you offer.
You have a welcome message option, which you should setup as a direct message. Use it to thank people for following you and repeat your free offer. You can also click the automatically follow new people that follow you option. Your Twitter email account should have the ability to aid you in forwarding all notices of recent followers from Twitter to that email account.
You have the option to set this up so your new followers automatically receive a message to join your list. You use your TweetLater account to get this going. It lets you organize your tweets ahead of time in intervals of weeks, days, hours or minutes. It is a good idea to do some tweets beyond the ones you schedule. These might be tips and advice concerning how your followers can promote their business or blog. It could be something a little more personal about you such as what your struggles and triumphs in your marketing efforts have been like or maybe some tweets about your other interests or something about your vacation.
Twitter people like the personal touch and talking about something besides your business sometimes gives them a chance to see you as a person. If they feel they know some good things about your personality and a little about your struggles it helps build the trust and familiarity that makes people respond better to your offers.
Another good thing about the TweetLater account is that it will drop those followers that stop following you. Hey, if they aren't really interested, they aren't targeted followers that are interested in your tweets, then they won't help you in your endeavor. This way you gain a list of people that have an interest in what you tweet about and it can help you make more money.
Now that you have signed up for Twitter and have setup a TweetLater account, the best strategy is to advertise your Twitter account quite a bit.
