“Tweet it!” This phrase would have sounded weird and crazy many years ago and would most likely have been related to a topic on birds. Today, however, it’s a very common and popular phrase among online surfers and especially Internet marketers who are building their niches and developing a following among members of their target market. Try asking MLM business gurus on the Internet and you’ll find that all of them would recommend the use of Twitter for your online MLM marketing.
The Power of Twitter
Easy and convenient to use with a very simple interface and concept, Twitter is a fast and effective way to reach out to many people and to gain followers in return. It’s considered by MLM marketing experts to be an effective tool in making a lot of individuals aware about your website, products, and services. All you need is just a few minutes each day to update your tweets, follow and read some others, comment and like, and retweet from time to time.
How to Establish a Follower Base
At first, you need to find out who among your friends and acquaintances are on Twitter. Follow them and ask them inconspicuously to follow you back. If possible, place your Twitter account link in your Facebook profile and in other profiles you have online. Of course it goes without saying as well that this should also be present on your website and easily clickable by visitors.
Furthermore, when you set up your Twitter profile, be sure to utilize an attractive background that suits your niche but doesn’t seem like you’re trying to sell anything.
How to Grow Your Follower Base
Now that you’ve got it all set up, it’s time to grow your follower base and to reach out to those people you may not know personally and whom you haven’t met anywhere online or offline. You can start this out by looking for related niches on Twitter that you can follow. Follow people who are interested in the same things as you are. Also read the established profiles with plenty of followers already and make sure to comment on their tweets every now and then. Write relevant and attention-capturing comments.
You can also utilize sponsored posts to have them draw added attention. It would also be good to run quick and simple contests such as providing prices or rewards for every 100th follower in your Twitter.
Another strategy for your MLM marketing is also to join relevant and related discussions and to make use of the trending hash tags on Twitter.
How to Strengthen Your Reputation
Remember that you are dealing with real people. You should treat all of them as actual friends and not means for you to earn money. Once you’re able to establish a good relationship with individuals, this is the time that they will begin to trust you and will possibly be willing to visit your site, subscribe to your newsletter, and buy products/services from you. Remember that if you’re not careful, they can just kick you out of their Twitter feed at any time they want to.
When you tweet, you have to craft your words so that they are polite yet engaging. It’s great to drop a few informational lines and links that do not directly lead to sales or capture pages. It would be helpful to also share relevant images and to be lavish and bighearted when it comes to retweeting others’ posts.
Be sure to post all your blog updates and important posts from your other social media accounts and website. You should also provide links to valuable resources in your niche that would be informative and helpful to your followers and target market.
Once you get the hang of utilizing Twitter for your MLM business, you’ll definitely be able to expand your follower base and gain additional MLM leads every week and every day. Twitter will surely prove to be worth your MLM marketing time and effort online.
