Twitter is the most popular yet the effective way of driving traffic into your Website/ Blog. Today we’ll discuss just 3 simple steps you should follow in order to take utmost advantage of this Network.

You don’t have to do it first, you just have to do it right.

1. Creating a Profile

It is not important to create a new profile again if you don’t have anything too personal on your existing one or if your current one isn’t is too cluttered. The reason is that your readers are always keen on knowing who they a interacting with while reading your posts. Never hide behind the mask of your blog. Now give all the necessary information to your account and then design it appropriately. When you’re entering the small description about yourself, Avoid entering “I am the best…” or “… The great” because you’re going to deal with the high end professionals and not your family again, This will create a cheap image of yourself on them. Keep it simple and short, Preferable just your profession and what you do.

2. Start Tweeting

Start tweeting everyday or even more than once a day but what is more important is consistency. There are a couple of softwares available to schedule your tweets so that it’ll tweet for you even while you’re asleep.  Let users know what is going on your blog and keep exciting them from the new content that is updated in your blog. You might be wondering that you don’t have any followers yet who would read your tweets, How are you going to reach them? Relax, Keep practicing and keep tweeting until you’ve done at least 15-20 of ’em. The reason behind them is that when people click on the ‘Follow’ button, They’ll have a better understanding of your living and tweeting. A blank profile will create a blank image of yourself to them. Also try to keep posting interesting pictures from your blog and interesting titles as 140 characters aren’t enough for some people out there.

3. Getting followers

Start following a couple of high end professionals in your niche. Now when you click on their followers or following list of a specific person, You will find people having similar interests as this critic. Keep clicking the “Follow” button to whichever feels more relevant to your niche. Sometimes, People are keen about knowing their followers so when you follow them, They get a message saying : “[You] is following you”. Now they see your profile full of cool stuff. They follow you and keep up with your life.  Once you’ve got a faithful friend who is having a lot of followers, You can ask him to tweet about your blog so that his followers too will check out your cool stuff. This is how the circle goes on and big people keep diving into your blog.

So Twitter marketing isn’t a rocket science afterall. If you have any suggestions or questions, Feel free to drop your valuable comments below.

I think that Filezilla is good FTP client to transfer all the files to your Web Host. Just copy all the necessary FTP information from your Website control panel or the so called “CPanel” to the Filezilla Site information and type “21” for Port number as it is recommended. Once that is done just drag all the files from your hard drive along with the sub folders of the project to the ‘Public_html’ folder in the Website.

Blog/ Product Traffic Secret: T-Shirts

Going to your friend’s profiles on Facebook, Twitter or broadcasting in any social network does not give any guarantee that people will buy or see your product. Instead we need to make them see without forcing their eyes, Let them see what’s that on your back and decide what to do. This person who is watching your shirt may get impressed that your product is exactly what they’re looking for. If you don’t have a T Shirt for your product then know that 99.99% of the people on the earth don’t know your biography and they only want that quality product from you and not yourself (About who you are). You don’t even have to talk to the people around you in detail about your product now, It’s less time consuming and much easier to reach broader audience. A very popular example is Steve Jobs who wore a black turtleneck to impress the people and let them know about his products: The iDevice family (iPhone, iPad & the iPod). You can see him wearing especially on the ‘All Things Digital’ conferences.  This also explains that you have that ‘Love for the Product’ and that you’re not selling a crap to people. Keep your costume simple and neat. Have your Company logo and a small quote or some catchy words like ‘May I help you?’. Just have one color or a maximum of two colors, Avoid adding abstract background to your costume. Let the text and the main content be easily visible. It should be a shirt that you first love to wear.  Avoid creating a duplicate costume of another company. Don’t create different costumes for different products but just one to symbolise that it all belongs to a single company/ organization otherwise it would result in confusion in customer’s minds. Keep it simple and love what you’re doing for you will strive to succeed only if you believe in your passion and think that this will work.
