Many people ask me about Twitter tips to become more successful on Twitter.
They read reports from other marketeers who say they are highly successful on Twitter and they want to know how that can be achieved.
To be honest, let me first say, that I don’t use Twitter that much and certainly not as a marketing tool.
But it has been most helpful for me to directly contact my peers and get questions answered in return for my answers to their questions. Some of these concerned Joint Venture invitations, which increased my sales drastically.
For me, that’s the most important benefit of using Twitter. Whereas many use Twitter to send out one-way (sales) messages, I use this social networking site for the most part as a communication device.
To help you be more successful on the site, I give you 10 short Twitter tips to be successful.

- Be Yourself
Don’t try to be someone else or to imitate someone. You followers will immediately recognize you as as being fake. You’ll rather want your true personality to appear.
- Tweet Value
Make sure that everything you tweet is highly valuable for your followers. You should always try to either inform, entertain or educate your followers. Those are the best ways to add value to your tweets.
- Tweet Frequently
This will allow you to be seen and it will also keep you in the forefront of people’s minds. Don’t tweet all day, instead tweet a couple of valuable messages shortly after each other.
- Communicate with Your Followers
Don’t just talk at your followers. They’ll recognize that immediately. Instead discuss or give answers. Remember the WIIFM?
- Therefore: Do NOT Sell
This will only turn your followers off. If one of them only tries to sell me, I usually unfollow.
Provide value instead and then occasionally include a link to a page on your site where they can get more info. That’s where you can sell to them.
- Know Your Audience
Take some time to get to know your followers. Visit their sites or follow their links. Thus you’ll find out what they want and you may be able to help them achieve that. BIG plus!
- Increase Your Followers
More followers means expanding your network and greater chances to be successful. Invite your readers to follow you on Twitter, like I do at the bottom of this post.
- Be Nice
You don’t want to offend anyone with your Tweets. Don’t write anything you wouldn’t want your mother or your grandmother to read.
- Don’t Complain
Always stay on the positive side tol keep you and your online business in a positive light.
Never SPAM on Twitter. There’s no better way te become unpopular and get kicked off of the site than sending Spam. And it certainly won’t make you any money.
There you have your Twitter tips. Make sure you always follow them and you’ll see the results.
As an extra bonus, here’s my most important Twitter tip:
PLAN your time on Twitter to avoid spending too much time there. It can be very tempting to stay on Twitter all day, answering all kind of nice communications, but I guess you also have work to do. Schedule an hour a day to communicate and then close the site or software program you’re using.
As you may have learned from this article, I build my follower list slowly.
