13 Tips To Increase Traffic With Twitter

Twitter is one of the greatest social media sites on the web. There are thousands upon thousands of twitter users, and you can generate a big share of this traffic if you know how.

Twitter allows you to post any link from the web along side with a description for a total of a 140 character limit. When posting on twitter, you can gain “followers.” Followers are people who keep up with your posts. These people don’t necessarily keep up with everything you post, but they are informed of your latest updates.

The following are 13 tips to increase your twitter traffic.

Twitter Tips #1 Add A Picture

Add a profile picture. A picture is a great way to tell people that you are dedicated. It builds recognition, curiosity, and is a great way to earn people’s trust. Every time people see your face or icon, they will see something they recognize; something they can trust. The sole reason of recognition may entice them to click on your posts. Especially if they know you put out great content. Chances are, you will gain more followers for uploading a picture.

A picture always sticks out!

Twitter Tips #2 Article Titles For Tweets

Make the topic or description of your tweets the same as you would for an article title. This will generate interest and more views.

Twitter Tips # 3 Be An Expert

Know your field. Learn the faq on the categories of your niche. Try to be perceived as an expert in your field of knowledge. The more knowledgeable you become, the better the advice you can share, and the more people will look at you as an expert.

Twitter Tips #4 Hot Topics

Write about topics that will be interesting to your specific community. Attention grabbing posts are the way to go. Look out for the latest news in your niche and use these hot topics as posts!

Twitter Tips # 5 Add Value

Generally speaking, make sure you post some valuable stuff! The more worthy your tweets, the more people will want to see what you have to put forth.

Twitter Tips #6 Common Interest

Best idea is to follow people of whom you share a common interest. I like internet marketing so I would follow people who also like internet marketing. This will better your exposure on twitter. People you find interesting will most likely find you interesting.

Twitter Tips #7 Be A Higher Figure

This is more of a general tip, but be professional. Be friendly and respectful, and never show anger. Be mature and act as an authority figure.

Twitter Tips #8 Don’t Be Selfish

Benefit the people. Do not post for the sole sake of selling products. Provide some value to your viewers if you want people to continually follow you. Remember, people can “unfollow” you anytime they want.

Twitter Tips #9 Self Control

Do not “overtweet.” Posting too many links may cause your followers to “unfollow” you. You can use your twitter stats to see if someone has stopped following you. This will give you a good idea if you are keeping your tweets at a good level. About 3-4 tweets a day should be a reasonable amount.

Twitter Tips #10 Use Tweetburner Perhaps

Tweetburner enables you to shorten your tweet urls. This will give you more space for a description. You can track click stats with tweetburner, helping you find out which tweets are more effective; or rather, which tweet strategies are working best. With this knowledge, you can tweak your “tweets” for the more traffic generating potential. It also will give you the timings of day which you tweets are clicked, which also may be helpful.

Twitter Tips #11 Duplicate Posts

Some people who use twitter notice that posting the same “tweet” within time frames during the day helps exposure. Posting the same tweet up to four times a day may help increase views, especially if your followers have tons of other followers not to mention tons of other updates.

Twitter Tips #12 Increase Followers

Increase your followers by adding followers of your own. It is most probable that those you add to follow will add you back.

Twitter Tips #13 Beyond Twitter

Generate more “tweets” by adding an RSS feed to your web pages; another good way to increase your followers and promote your content.

These are my twitter tips for you. I hope you enjoyed.

# Be honest. Have fun. Don’t try to sell anything.
# funny, informative and catchy: choose two.
# Twitter about stuff that has to do with your blog, but also Twitter stuff that has nothing to do with your blog.
# Share links, share ideas, ask questions, answer questions — anything but “what are you doing?” unless it’s really interesting
# This was my problem at first, I just lurked. Get active and follow others. Great tool for tossing around ideas.

We all know that Twitter and Facebook are the two most used social networking sites to get traffic for your site. Here are 5 successful ways to get traffic from Twitter:

1 Profile Page - Provide a link to your website in your profile page.
2 Interaction - Interaction is very important, it might even be the most important part of Twitter
3 Twitter username - Your username should be related to your website.
4 Target Followers - Find people who have the same interests as you.
5 Display your RSS feeds on Twitter

Posts to Twitter, or Tweets as they are called, are small updates you post that could be a thought you have had related to your business, a project you are working on, a cool video that you have watched or you could ask a question of the Twitter community. Pretty much anything goes, except for hardcore sales pitches or marketing.

Why do you want to repeat the same tweet?

This is usually a tactic used by spammers.

(Can you guess why Twitter won't let you do it?)

The best tip is that stay human and friendly. Nobody likes to talk to machines.

and You can't put the toothpaste back in the tube. – So make sure what you tweet about.

I think instead of repeating your tweets, it is better to rephrase so that you can avoid spamming.

I think Twitter works if you are already an important person online, so that your permanent readers or clients could follow your updates there. But how to gain the auditory on Twitter when your are just a beginner and no one actually cares about you?

Twitter is easy, but then a lot of people are wondering what steps to take to get followers. I'll give you the strategy I use. I only tried it one day, and consisted of about 30 minutes to work, about 5 minutes to send requests to follow and I have almost 120 followers, so it seems to work pretty well for me. Of course, I learned this strategy from an expert Twitter has nearly 3,000 followers, as we speak, and it is not even hard to build his new list.
