Twitter is an micro blogging tool and a incredible medium for listening, learning, and sharing. Some use it for marketing effectively and some for wrong methods. So today i’m going to list out some basic rules that should be followed on twitter for building a good relationship with your twitter friends and thereby gain traffic to your website and maintain your high standards.
Think before you tweet – Twitter is a powerful online media, so before tweeting anything think twice. Remember, once it is out there… it is out there.
Avoid personal attacks – Do not abuse or insult other twitter users. There’s nothing wrong with having a controversial opinion, but you should be discussing the issues in a calm and mature manner. Attack the issue, not the person.
Do not tweet and drink – When you’re not calm and composed or when you’re drunk don’t start tweeting out. It’s like social suicide.
Instead of linking to your website all the time (shameless self promotion), help out the people with your knowledge.
Don’t flood with your tweets – This is probably the most irritating thing to see. Yes ofcourse, you can promote on twitter but not too much. Don’t be a flooder. Overactive users tend to get unfollowed.
Follow people from your niche and great leaders in your industry. It will led you to Re-tweets and even backlinks from their websites.
Customize your profile by adding an outstanding display image and creative background picture.
Best way to tell about you on twitter is by adding your bio. Tell about yourself in 2 or 3 lines and link a popular twitter article from your website. So that when people come from twitter, they get impressed by your website and subscribe as readers. This is usually far better than just sending them to your homepage.
If someone Re-tweets your post or any updates, try to thank them personally.
Use twitter for sparking conversations, ask questions and share your results. Follow everyone who can help you learn and improve your skills.
Make sure that you leave some space in your tweets to make it easier for someone to RT. 120 characters in 140 is the best one.
Capture interesting pictures and share it with your friends. You can use Twitpic for sharing activites.
Be honest and give your support.
Personally send a DM thanking every new person who follows you.
Talk to people who follow you, put your ego’s aside and start talking to people.
