Twittering Trends

Have you heard about Twitter yet?

If not then twitter follower bot you will be soon ... the question you have to ask yourself is this ... 'Is my Target Market busy Tweeting?' If they are then you will want to join them.

So what is Twitter? Well its a form of micro-blogging. No doubt you are familiar with Blogs. Twitter is a condensed format of blogging. Twitter only allows you to send a message up to 140 characters in length hence the reason it is known as mirco-blogging.

Now before you right it off as just another Internet thingo that your kids are into take a look at this:

This is taken from www.Google.com/trends (a brilliant research tool) and shows the growth in popularity of Twitter in the last four or five months. Right now Twitter is growing massively and is gaining huge momentum with millions of people Tweeting.

What does it mean to send a Tweet? Well essentially a Tweet is a 140 character update of what you are doing. You can also use Tweets to share information, share different resources and to direct people to your website.

You do this by building up a list of followers. Then every time you Tweet (send a message through Twitter) it is viewable by all of your followers. Obviously the goal then is to build up a big list of followers and to continually add value to them rather than just pitching them.

Now here is the most important thing ... Twitter is an awesome tool for being able to identify your Target Market and then have them follow you. What this means is that it is possible to build a large following of your target market with a little knowledge and know how.

I have to admit ... when I first joined Twitter it made no sense to me at all. Why would people want to follow me? What could I possibly send tweets about? etc. So if this is what you are thinking right now then I understand/

Let me assure you of one thing though ... the world is rapidly changing. New technology such as Twitter will be the key to reaching and gaining the ATTENTION of your target market in the future whether you like it or not.

Compare the cost of Twitter (free) to reach your target market with say a half page ad in Yellow Pages.

I can almost guarantee you that if your Target Market are not currently on Twitter they will be in 6 to 12 months based on the growth trend. Not all of them sure, but enough of them to make it worthwhile for you to begin learning about it today.

So what should you do about it?

First go to Twitter and create a profile.

Next send a message to everyone you know asking them to follow you and include the link to your profile.

Then http://www.cnn.com/ add links to your website, blog and Facebook profiles so that people visiting any of these sites can add you as a Twitter friend.

If you just start out by playing around with it you will soon see the power of Twitter and why it is set to become a powerhouse marketing tool.
