The things that any start-up website or blog need the most, is traffic and inbound links. But this is much easier said than done. In my research on how to get said traffic and links, I was led to social networking. Twitter is one such social network.

The things that any start-up website or blog need the most, is traffic and inbound links. But this is much easier said than done. In my research on how to get said traffic and links, I was led to social networking.

Many have scuffed at social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and Linked. They say that too much time is wasted on these. But if used correctly, they can become a great source for directed traffic and inbound links.

Twitter is one such social network. Think of it as SMS/Texting for your PC. You can only tweet 140 characters. So anything you say needs to be concise and to the point. The beauty is that you can add links, which in turn work out as inbound links to your site.

Building traffic with Twitter is like building a reputation. With Twitter, as with any other social network, its friends or followers that matter. You need to build up followers on twitter. People who choose to follow you because the like what you have to say.  When you have people that choose to follow you, they will most likely click on links you provide because they have a need to read what you ahve to say.

Twitter can be a marketing dream, if harnessed correctly. So how can twitter help you and your business?

  • Find new clients
  • Make new contacts
  • Stay informed
  • Generate story ideas
  • Build your brand
  • Drive traffic to your Web site
  • Improve your writing
  • Learn about new tools

A twitter user, Jennie, wrote this, "When I first joined Twitter, I didn’t think my participation would amount to anything but wasted time. But as my list of followers continued to grow, I began to realize the full potential of this microblogging tool. Just in the last week, I’ve received two inquiries from people who found me on Twitter and are interested in hiring me to do some writing for them. These are people who I would not have met otherwise. And I’m betting they would not have stumbled across my online portfolio and Web site without the aid of Twitter."
