How do I use twitter for marketing?

Twitter is a powerful resource for marketing online, it is quick and relatively easy to reach your audience with a little bit of knowledge.

 

Step 1:  Make sure that your profile describes your website attractively towards your target audience and links to your site.

Step 2:  Set up a twitter feed to feed your blog RSS to twitter and facebook www.twitterfeed.com

Step 3:  Follow all of the influential people in your market.

Step 4:  Retweet some of the tweets of influential twitter users. (Repeat this regularly)

Step 5:  Mention these “tweeps” (whatever you want to call them), within the context of your tweets.  For example:

“You should really check this game out http://bit.ly/yourlink @IGN”.
