6 Reasons to Join Twitter

Wifi

twitter-webtrafficroi

After about 3 months of launching this blog , I joined Twitter today and I am already addicted.

Below are 6 reasons I am glad I joined.

– Building a community :
To be successful on the internet or in any business you need to build a community or a network , The larger your Network the greater your Net Worth.
Twitter allows you to build you own community and network with co bloggers.

– Building awareness for my blog :
More awareness = more traffic = more money. You need to look at different avenues to get more traffic and usability for your blog.
Twitter helps you build the much needed awareness for your blog.

– Following my readers :
I recognize that many of my readers are on Twitter and it becomes important for me to follow them and be a part of the online community.
Twitter helps me follow my readers and keeps me updated about their interests and activities. To become a great leader, you need to be a good follower.

– Getting more reader interaction:
A blog with a lot of comments builds greater interactivity and involvement. I love responding to comments on my blog.
Twitter helps me comment on my readers activities, thus building a larger community.
 
– You get 140 characters or less to make an impact :
No one has time to go through long posts, the 140 characters forces me to be brief and creative in communicating with my readers.

– Twittering is Addictive :
You need to be a part of the community to experience the addictiveness of Twitter.

Follow me on Twitter , know what I am doing.

    Twitter is a cool way to interact with people that for sure. I try to use it as much as I can when doing stuff expect for about few weeks ago when I got suspended for spamming so they say..

    If one twits about nothing else than his blog posts, then I’d consider it spamming. But its impossible to do link building on twitter, since the links are shortened. The only place to show your link is in your profile. The best thing we can do is have fun. 😀

    The majority of the MarketLeverage staff is on Twitter. We love it because it provides us with the opportunity to communicate with our affiliates, and with one another. Also, it’s just a forum for us to get to know our affiliates better and vice versa. I agree with what you said in your post: Twitter IS addicting. Great post!

    ZK, so glad you noticed our Twitter efforts. We have become Twitter fiends lately. Besides keeping up with each other, we really enjoy getting to know a different size to our Publishers, a more personal side. It feels like we are part of a large, supportive community. I’m glad you’re a fan of Twitter as well!

  • Gigs October 29, 2008, 8:13 pm

    How else can I invite friends?

  • ZK October 30, 2008, 12:10 pm

    Hi Isa : Welcome here, you can invite your friends by typing in separate email ids from your Twitter account, I dont think that should be a problem.

    I don’t like Twitter.. I don’t see the monetization potential there..

    Hi Blogging Banks : Twitter is my second largest source of sending Traffic after Google and its just been less than 10 days I started using Twitter. I am still a newbie on Twitter , this just shows that you dont have to have a large audience to get Traffic from Twitter, infact Twitter will help you get that large share of new users and traffic. I highly recommend you to join it even if you dont have any traffic on your blog.

    Never heard of twitter, but if it brings more traffic to your blog, definitely worth joining up. Definitely going to register there and check it out! Thanks!

  • Niyaz November 4, 2008, 3:59 am

    To be frank, Twitter good performing in Google organic result.

  • Armen Shirvanian November 4, 2008, 12:47 pm

    It is nice to see the purpose of Twitter described with multiple reasons. I haven’t seen many places that point out items such as this, since it would appear that Twitter has limited options. Following others that make use of Twitter appears to be one of the more relevant reasons to take part, as you can see a partial flowthrough of the individual’s creation process.

  • Brad@office supplies August 20, 2009, 9:21 am

    My issue with Twitter is the small amount of characters that you can use. While I understand it’s a microblogging tool, I have to really pick and choose my info to best communicate it. That’s a skill that i ahven’t really mastered all that well yet.

    Great little article. So true about the fact that you have so few characters, means less rubbish is written!
