Drive Traffic with Twitter

whaleTwitter is viewed as just another social networking tool that you can utilize in order to better promote your website or your blog. You can use Twitter to promote your blog quickly and easily, and this is a truly effective way to drive more traffic without much effort. First, you need to set up your Twitter account.

If you are going to write on Twitter.com, the first thing that you need to do is to set up an account and then to get started. This will include creating an account with the username you wish to have represent you, and then completing your profile and setting up any specific settings in your Twitter preferences. For good marketing, you should set up a picture in your profile because it is important to let people get to know you.

The next step in the process is to write the content that you have in mind. You can use twitter to reference content that you post on article submission sites, so you may want to begin by writing such an article. Create a profile on the submission directory site if you have not done so already. This is just another way to get your name out there.

Now that you have an account created on both websites, and a bio or profile under each of the sites, the next step is to get everything linked together. If you have a Twitter account, you can set things up to automatically update your status when sites like ezinearticles.com approve your content. What that means is that as soon as an article you write is posted on EzineArticles, it will be automatically posted to your Twitter feed at the same time. Considering how simple both of these endeavors truly are, this is a two for one kind of marketing effect. Not only will it get your name out there in the article submission sites for better article syndication marketing, but it feeds your Twitter.

This is one of the best ways to use your Twitter account to advertise your blog or other website endeavors that you are looking to attract traffic to. This is a really hands free process that everyone can get use of because it only requires membership to two sites for absolutely free, and a little bit of content in order to get the ball rolling. If you want to use Twitter to advertise your blog or website, this is a good way to set everything up, because your Twitter account is “fed” hands free, and you can work on writing good content and letting article syndication as well as Twitter accomplish the rest of the work for you.

Good article and you are quite right about the auto twittering of your article. It is seemless and easy to do.

What I am trying to figure out is a twitterfeed so that your blog post can happen in the same manner. Any clue how I get that accomplished?

Thanks

This is a youtube tutorial video on using Twitterfeed:

Is that what you’re looking for? Or are you talking about your Twitter RSS feed?

You can find a Twitter RSS feed for your Twitter account at the bottom of your Twitter profile page on the left hand side opposite the Older >> button for older tweets. You’re going to be asked for some authentication.
