Microblogging has become one of the biggest trends in both social networking and making money online. The website Twitter is one of the biggest and most widely used micro blogging sites on the internet, and can be a powerful marketing tool if used properly.
Here's the key: Using Twitter to make money online is all about driving traffic to places where people will take an action that will put cash in your pockets. Micro blogging gives you a chance to target your audience and build a very personal relationship with them while still using massive leverage.
Because of this, the traffic that you generate using Twitter is some of the best web traffic that you can have visiting your site. This is because if someone visits your site due to something that you mention on Twitter, then you aren't a 'total stranger' to the person.
This means that you have a higher degree of trust with them, and higher trust always = more sales. Also, it can have a viral effect if you are giving people links to content, tools, or information that they enjoy. Imagine passing a link onto people who will repost the link for 100's of their followers to check out... The possibilities are endless.
One of the most effective tricks of using Twitter to make money online is to use Twitter to drive people to articles that you've posted on your blog(s). Blogs are very dynamic and allow you to constantly add new and relevant content on an hourly, daily, or weekly basis. This keeps you fresh and allows you to keep people coming back to your site over and over again...
If you offer people good content on your blog, then they are likely to tell others and return themselves. However getting people to your blog originally can be tricky.
This is where micro blogging really shines because the number one thing that you need to know to make money online (for your own 'brick and mortar business', affiliate marketing, or something else) is how to get the right people to visit your site. Twitter and other micro blogging sites will help you to supercharge your targeted traffic faster than nearly any other form of free marketing.
Here's how it works:
Twitter can help you generate traffic by allowing you to let all of your followers know that you've posted something new and letting you link to it. A good tip while doing this is to post the article name as a question that will arouse curiosity. One example might be, "Are you using the #1 trick to making money online with Twitter? (insert your link here)".
This tip can also be used when using other people's articles through your blog. Simply tell people that you ran across a great article and link to your blog. Then have a blog entry that summarizes the article or promotes it briefly while linking to the original post.
This will get people to your blog and often they will read other posts, ads, reviews, etc. before clicking through to the main article you are referencing.
This is just one of many ways to use Twitter to make money online by driving traffic to your blog. Use it as an idea and get creative in your own way because the possibilities are endless!
