Twitter tips for the non pros

TWITTER logo
I joined Twitter over three and also a half years back. While I’ve never ever been sorry for the choice, I was a skeptic initially.

The truth is that just in the past 6 months have I truly realized the influence of Twitter when correctly made use of. I spent some time observing “power users” like Randy Elrod and Mike Hyatt and imitating a few of their behavior. (See Randy’s 10 Commons Twitter Mistakes for more on his “tricks” to success.).

For a few years, I had a few hundred fans and thought that Twitter was a lot more concerning me than others. In the past half-year, I have actually attempted to develop even more area by concentrating on others for a modification. The outcomes represent themselves: my followers have actually tripled, and I’ve enjoyed using it a lot more.

If you’re simply beginning or are still a skeptic, below are some Twitter pointers for newbies:

Tweet daily. There’s no other way around this. You have to be consistent.
Don’t tweet too much. Try tweeting a couple of times a day as well as note when are the very best times to connect with your fans by seeing when people react. (I’m actually working on this myself, as I have actually recognized I could be tweeting way too much.).
Share connect to rewarding, relevant material. Incidentally, while we’re on the topic, I ‘d like for you to discuss this post on Twitter now. #twittertipstobecomefamous

Be generous. Share important details as well as request absolutely nothing in return. An instance of someone that does this with humor is Tim Sidell (aka @badbanana).
Retweet others’ posts utilizing the old school “RT” approach versus the Twitter.com-style retweet. A feasible option is using the “via …” retweet method.
