How to get People to Follow You on Twitter in the World of Web 2.0

Twitter is becoming an increasingly popular social networking site. On Twitter; users post status updates to let the world know what they are doing. The status can be updated as often or as far apart as a person chooses.

It is easy to get a Twitter account. Simply sign up, log in and post status messages (up to 140 words). On Twitter a company can post URL’s to all of their sites and post them to Twitter. Any user that knows the name of the company or product and type it in the search bar navigate to the users’ page and click follow. It’s that simple. This is an easy way to keep followers updated about new products, free trials and any special deals that are available.

Users can go directly through the website to update tweets and view tweets from other followers. One way to find people that may be interested in following you; simply type in their email address or log into one of the many web services supported by Twitter. This will give you a list of people that you are already associated with and possibly a definite follower.

The people you follow do not necessarily have to follow back. Users can download a desktop application that will keep them automatically updated with all incoming Tweets. For the person on the go; there is a download for different types of cell phones where users can send and receive tweets. If the mobile device does not support the app, Tweets can be sent via SMS.

Once the Twitter account is created, the user is assigned a unique URL; this can then be emailed to an established contact list.

Adding a “twitter widget” is another great way to get followers quickly. When a user comes across a site that is of interest to him or her and want to follow it; all the user has to do is click the icon and they will automatically start receiving tweets.

Twitter is just another way for the marketer to get noticed in the world of Web 2.0. For the marketer; Twitter is a good platform to use to post new products and/or product improvements or great deals products.

  17. David, congrats for pushing out your message. Your protocols are all very much common sense. My take away from what you are saying misses the most crucial dynamic of social media- the user is in charge-not the owner of the messaging. The user determines the relative value of whatever content you present…not the owner of the content. The greatest challenge going forward is to re evaluate what we are conditioned to believe is true…which truly is most everything we’ve been taught.

  27. @SpaceHeaterStudios Thank you for your comment. I completely agree with you. Often people get infatuated with search engine results and forget that the audience they should be focused on consists of real live people. Manners, tact, grace and integrity amongst other traits all play out here. Appealing to your audience is the key and if you think you are talking to a computer. Boy you are dead wrong. If I can provide you with any other types of training or information please ask. David Skul

  28. @marketingontheweb1 Thank you for your comment. I appreciate the look at my videos. If you are looking for anything that I have not covered yet please let me know.

  29. These are good guidelines to keep in mind, especially the points about not “rebuilding the wheel”. Social networking is exactly what it sounds like – networking. Its important to use what you are already given (groups, organizations, pages) to reach people all the while developing your own strategies to find people.
