Twitter Marketing Ideas

Thank you veterans for serving our countryThe rise of social media has brought with it immense opportunities for social media platform for users to make money. In this article, we will look at Twitter marketing ideas that wounded and disabled vets can use.

Here we will also explore building a website and how to monetize it so that you would get the best results. You should note that it will take time to start making a substantial income from these marketing strategies, but Twitter can be a source of immediate income at a smaller scale if you get the training and follow the steps that I will outline here.

Ready?

Getting Started

Disabled vets find it hard to get back in the job market for various reasons. Most of these reasons will not matter, as they pertain to Twitter marketing, as long as you can log online and tweet.

Getting started is easy as well.

Here are the basic steps.

1. Join Twitter for free.

2. Choose a niche business to be in. This is your target market.

3. Drill down and think micro niche. For example, making money with Twitter is a micro-niche in the more broad niche of making money.

4. Join an affiliate program or network. I would join Wealthy Affiliate for free and take their free 5 part affiliate marketing training course.

5. Find something to promote relating to your niche.

6. Start getting Twitter followers.

7. Tweet out affiliate offers you have chosen to your list.

This may seem simple, and for the most part, it is. However, it takes time and works on your part.

Let’s talk more about what you can promote in your tweets.

Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate Marketing is the kind of marketing where you use your tweets to sell a company’s product and receive a predetermined commission. In this regard, every time a follower uses your link to purchase the item or service you are promoting, you receive a percentage of the sale

Some of the popular affiliate marketing programs that can thrive through twitter marketing include Amazon, Clickbank, iTunes, Groupon, eBay, and thousands more. You can also use Tweet Adder Affiliate Program to make things easier for you.

Personal Recommendation Marketing

Personal recommendation is influencer marketing. This is where you provide your personal recommendation to your followers.

In this case, you agree with a product or service provider on the terms of payment. Thereafter, you personally recommend the product to your followers.

Having already used the product or service is a key to making this work. The key here is to ensure that you are recommending high-quality products or services.

Driving Traffic To A Website

This method closely resembles affiliate marketing. However, rather than focusing on getting your followers to purchase a product or service, the focus here is to drive traffic to a website.

It may be through highlighting deals on an e-website, promoting a raffle, or any other marketing method that drives traffic to a website.

Using Twitter Monetization

Of all the Twitter marketing monetization methods available, this is one of the easiest. In this method, you sign up for programs such as PaidPerTweeter, SponsoredTweets.com, and MyLike Social Publisher.

These programs provide tweets for you to choose from and publish using your tweeter account. Although each of such platforms works in a unique way, they all offer money for quality tweets.

Getting Twitter Followers

Obviously, for any of these strategies to be a success you need to have a large following. Therefore, you will need to put effort into accruing ample traffic by being active in getting new followers.

It has been said that attaining new followers is getting harder by the day. Nonetheless, with good content, a clear strategy, and persistence, your “Followers” number will rise.

What is working when it comes to getting new Twitter follower?

1. Complete your profile. Make sure your profile is 100% complete. Most are not.

– Try and get a username that describes your brand.

– Fill up your bio with 160 characters.

– Use your location.

– Include your website or blog.

– Be sure you have a profile picture that is 400×400 pixels.

– Design a professional header picture at the top of your profile of 1500×500 pixels.

– Pin a Tweet that offers your best Tweet or a product sale etc.

2. Cross promoting. If you have other online sites such as a blog, Facebook, other Twitter accounts, email sig file, newsletters, etc. promote your blog posts on them every now and then.

3. Promote at live events. If you go to a live event Tweet about it.

4. Use hashtags. Use hashtags that are already popular as a way to increase your chances of being seen. Read this article on the Do’s and Don’ts of hashtags. https://blog.hootsuite.com/how-to-use-hashtags/

5. Interact with other people on Twitter. Especially if they are not following you yet.

6. Follow people back. This is up to you, but it has been said that more people will follow you if they think you follow them back.

7. Get back to people who mention you. If you have mentioned in another tweet contact that person and say thanks.

8. Twitter chats. Host or participate in Twitter Chats to increase engagement opportunities.

9. Run contests. Have a Twitter contest for a retweet and win.

10. Twitter ads. If you have a small budget run ads for Promoted Tweets, Promoted Trends, and Promoted Accounts

    I do have a twitter account but not up to the mark. After going through your post I do realize I need to do a lot of changes and modification. You walked me through in detail from getting started to getting followers in twitter. Thanks Again for the information. Wishing you all success!

    • Hey Paul, glad that you get some value here with my twitter marketing post. It is my favorite marketing strategy hence the reason for my detail outline.

      When writing I always have the newbies in mind, cause when I was starting out the details were not made available to me. I guess the professional marketers were targetting professionals. S thanks that you got the detail set up and where you should go with it. Thank you for your kind words and I wish you all the best as well.

        Dear David,

        That’s great to know you always keep the newbies in mind while writing your posts. Thanks for that. Really your post is very well detailed. Keep up the good work and wishing you great success!

        Your Friend,
        Paul

        • Hi Paul, yes I do keep the newbies in mind when I am writing my post cause I remember back then when I was trying to absorb some online content. I almost had to spend a week asking people how to interpret certain part of an article. It may sound strange, but you would be surprised the language some of these articles were written, which causes people to believe that online marketing is only for professionals.

          Happy that times have changed, and social media approach is more predominant and having people to communicate better when writing a post. Wish you all the best for your online business.

  3. Sue Dixon

    Hi David, this was a helpful article and one aimed at a very an incredibly worthy direction – wounded warriors. I had no idea about “focused tweets” and platforms such as that for Twitter. Great ideas! Thank you, David, for another insightful and inspiring article.

    • Glad that this article was helpful to you Sue, one that Veterans are finding easy to get started when promoting a product to earn an income from home. If I can help you in any way, please let me know. Thanks.

  4. Craig Ostrander

    Hello David,
    These are very good suggestions. I need to up m Twitter involvement and you have given me some excellent ideas as to how to do it.

    • Good that this article was helpful and was able to grab some ideas to up your Twitter Marketing involvement. It has helped me in the past, and if done right, it can do the same for you and others. Thank you for the feedback, it meany a lot to me.

  5. Michelle

    Wow!
    Great article, David. I did not realize how useful using social media can be – in terms of making an income. Your detailed information has certainly proved to be a great base to start.
    Can you give me an idea of about how long it could take if I implement all the strategies you recommend before I start seeing some ‘type of monetary movement’?
    Thanks for sharing.

    • Hi Michelle, glad that you see the importance of using social media to earn an income online. Twitter is one of the easiest because you can start off small by getting paid for quality tweets and then you can join an affiliate program and build from there. The money will be small and can happen within weeks or days depending on the number of followers you have. my best advice is to concentrate on building your following first by just sending out friendly tweets in the beginning.

      After your following is in the thousands, then you can sign up to the program I mention and they would pay you for tweeting to your followers, then you can go further and join an Affiliate Program and earn a residual income if you get some of your followers to join your Affiliate program. That can happen within your first year, and you can earn an income full time, that may pay better than a 9 to 5 job. Hope that helps.
