Social network marketing is a big must for all those starting out in their MLM business. You have the likes of Facebook and MySpace out there which are also great, but now we have Twitter!! When starting up in your business you don’t really want to be spending a lot of money on advertising not until you are earning a buck or two, so the best way is to start networking with like minded people on these social networking sites which is totally free.
Now Twitter is very unlike your other social sites out there, in the way that there is only a photo of you, a 160 character bio and a web link, on top of this you only have 140 characters to tweet about. Once you have set up your Twitter account its time to make your first post! The first most important thing to remember is not to sell, sell, sell. Post something that is intriguing and attach a shortened link to a URL, (there are sites where you can shorten your link for free) Post information that is useful to your followers. Ask your followers questions. Try to get them to interact with you. Yes you are trying to get leads for your business, but It doesn’t hurt to occasionally post something personal about yourself to remind your followers that you’re human too.
Don’t just tweet (post) your own articles and links. Tweet other news articles, tips, etc. that you find helpful and that are relevant to your followers. You can also post good quotes (either your own or other people’s). Many people post inspirational/motivational quotes.
Don’t forget to #RT (re-tweet) posts that you like. This is a great way to get respect of other tweeters, and this is another great way to interactive with other tweeters.
Thank new followers (send them a welcome direct message (DM)). It is common courtesy to follow someone back who follows you, but don’t be afraid not to follow people who you don’t want to follow, you will know who these people are.
Always Interact with your Twitter followers! Build relationships, provide good information and NEVER EVER try to sell them. Offer help and eventually you will start to reap your rewards by getting leads to your business.
