4 Tips to Fail with Twitter

Filed Under Social Marketing

Twitter is one of the most valuable tools you can use to grow your business. Even the larger corporations are starting to use this tool to grow their business. While you’ll find this is the best way to grow, the only way it will happen is to use it correctly.

SPAM is something people don’t put up with and more times than not, they’ll block you and report you for SPAM quicker than anything else. If you’re looking for a way to fail when you use Twitter, you need to follow these steps.

1. One of the absolute worst things you can do on Twitter is to reply to people with your link. It’s ok to send it when people ask for it, but don’t just send it because you think they’ll be interested in seeing what you offer.

2. One way to be tagged with SPAM is to send direct messages to people with your link.
It’s ok to send messages and thank them for following you or to ask questions, but it’s never ok to send your link without their permission.

3. One of the best ways to lose followers is to only post ads about your business or affiliate programs you’re apart of and that’s it.

4. Another way to lose followers quickly is to only post your blog posts to Twitter. While it’s important to post your blog to your twitter account, it’s never a good idea to only post your blog and never post anything else.

One of the most valuable tools you can use in your business is Twitter, but it will prove to be invaluable if you don’t use it in the correct way. When you avoid these four errors you’ll find you will have much more success with your time on Twitter.
