Anyone who looks atyour profile will see a lot ofinformation about you or your company. This is a mini-advertisement for you, so take the opportunity to shine.Make sure that you fill your profile out completely. See the video formore.Marketing Tip: Have a call to action in your bio.

  6. 6. 3. TweetAdder:TweetAdder,, is great software program that you run on your computerthat helps to automate so many Twitter tasks.The automation piece alone is what is so fantastic about thisapplication. This is literally a “SET IT AND FORGET IT” piece ofsoftware. This means, you set it up once and it will pretty much runon its own; adding new followers, removing non-followers,automatically Tweeting for you, Tweeting RSS feeds so that youconstantly have content going out, sending direct messages to newfollower (where you can include a marketing message) and manymore things.You should plan on getting TweetAdder and when you do, you shouldconsider buying the unlimited license or at least a multi-accountlicense. The reason is that you will probably end up with multipleTwitter accounts at some point in time, so why not buy the multi-account license now. If you do buy a multi-account license, make surethat you buy proxies for those accounts. If you use the same proxy(your IP address that your computer runs on), Twitter will more thanlikely shut your accounts down. You will find more information onContact: 1-877-782-2864
  7. 7. where to buy additional proxies in TweetAdder under the Pro Toolssection.Marketing Tip: There are so many marketing tips on TweetAdder, sohere are just a few: Add your business or contact information to your “Thank You” message in TweetAdder. This is the message that is sent to your new followers and it is a great time to showcase your business. Use the power search capabilities to target the people you want to follow based on keywords and location. Nothing like a targeted audience. If you have a blog that has constantly changing information, make sure that you automate the publishing of this information to your followers through a RSS feed. Also, make sure that you add either a prefix or a suffix. A prefix can be “Breaking News” or “New Post from ...” in the suffix, think about a hashtag that you can use to group your Tweet. Of note, if you automate the RSS feed, what ever you add in the prefix and the suffix will always show up, so make sure that it is relevant. note the link above is an affiliate link.Contact: 1-877-782-2864

In your thank you message, you can add a plug, such as, “Thanks for the follow, I look forward to reading your Tweets.

  12. 12. 5. Promoting Blog Posts: If you write a blog post, or for that matter, have a website that promotes or sells products or services, why not promote this to your Twitter followers?I write a daily sales and marketing blog ( I promote my blog post every day. What I do is take the topicthat I have written about and then I create 3 to 5 quick overviews onthe topic and then I tweet them throughout the day.Added Bonus: Use to shorten your web address or URL. Thiswill take a long website address and shorten it to 20 characters, oftentimes giving back valuable real estate to your Tweets. Also, they havea powerful analytics engine that will show you how many times yourlink was clicked and where in the world people were clicking, amongother things.Marketing Tip: Do up overviews on your blog post, add a hashtag,leave 20 character spaces so that your message can be re-Tweetedwithout loosing the original message. When ever someone re-Tweetsa message, their information is added to the Tweet and if the Tweet isContact: 1-877-782-2864

Once you havethe overviews done, you can use a program like Social Oomph,TweetAdder or Hootsuite to schedule the tweets throughout the day.See the marketing tip video here: Listening On Twitter AdvanceSearch:Hello!
