As Twitter gets more and more popular, it has also become an accepted method to market your products online. If you are going to use Twitter for marketing, however, be sure to not make the errors we’ll be talking about below.
When you start marketing on Twitter, you have to keep in mind your target market and who you’re dealing with. Sending your followers too many messages that are off topic will cause them to ignore you or stop following you. Don’t make the typical mistake of forgetting about your niche and sending out tweets that are not relevant. This often happens because marketers want to build relationships with their followers, which is valid. At the same time, though, it’s important to stay on topic most of the time. If your tweets are all over the map and have no consistency, it’s hard to build up your credibility in your niche. It’s fine if you occasionally tweet on other, random topics to entertain your followers. The majority of your tweets, however, should have something to do with your own market. That means if your main topic is golf, then you should be mostly focused on giving your followers information on this subject. If you start to tweet about every other random thing you like, you’ll lose focus and also your followers.
Don’t straight away shoot out promotional links to your followers. If you want to recommend them a certain product, first warm them up about it. The ideal way to do this is to first offer up some free advice before you ease into giving them a recommendation on a product. For instance, if you are offering an ebook that helps people get rid of acne, then you need to first discuss acne and why it’s important to get rid of it. A good way to do this is to let them know that there are other things they can try, but that these things are ineffective and useless. You must first let them know that only your product will take care of their problem, and then you must convince them that they need to do it fast. This is how people get trusting of others and they’re very likely to click on that link, instead of just going up to them and hoping they’ll click on your link just because. You don’t want them to think you’re a pushy salesman, and instead you want to be seen as a helper of their problem.
Coming across like a corporate executive is another typical mistake made by Twitter marketers. They erroneously believe that their audience will respect them and look up to them this way. Twitter members, however, don’t want to talk to corporate types, but to down to earth people they can relate to. It also gives you more flexibility when you aren’t simply representing one product or company. Your followers don’t use Twitter to interact with a company, so you would only lose people this way.
In conclusion, Twitter can be seen as the new online marketing playground that’s gaining momentum really fast. Twitter is a unique online platform, and if you want it to work for you, make sure you aren’t making the kind of mistakes we’ve been pointing out.
