5 Tips on How Twitter Helps Boost Your Blog?

It doesn’t matter if you’re blogging for fun or business, Twitter can help boost your blog tremendously. Here are five Twitter Tips to help you out.

1.) Twitter is all about the conversation.

You can have conversations on blogs and on social media sites like Facebook, but it’s not the same kind of conversation as with Twitter. With blogs, you’re trying to speak to a crowd. You’re in command and running the blog your way and hoping that people will respond to you with questions or comments. With Facebook, you can get to know people via their profiles, but you’re mostly still just communicating one on one. Now Twitter is kind of like a gigantic party. There are thousands of conversations going on all the time and you can join one, or you can just jump in and start your own. If you start a new one, then others can decide to join in and talk to you. It’s even easy to carry on multiple conversations at the same time. It’s total conversational freedom. To make a long story short, Twitter is a social media tool meant to create community and relationships. It’s your job to build on those relationships.

2.) Twitter is a great source for blog post topics.

When you’re wondering what to write about on your blog, and you need some inspiration, just go to Twitter. You can pick up other posts and expand on them, get ideas from the conversations you’re having or watching and even discover new authors to add to your feed reader. You can even ask Twitterers what you should post about. Just ask them what questions they have about the subject you want to write about. Their questions can even give you ideas for more posts. The good thing about this is that it gives you a sense of what people are really thinking about on a topic. This helps you to get to know them on a new level and also helps you know the needs and feelings of your potential readers.You can do a Twitter search on the subject you’re interested in and find even more targeted Tweets to give you ideas.

3.) Anyone can master Twitter.

It doesn’t matter if you are a newbie or a professional blogger or a tech freak. Anyone can Tweet and build relationships on Twitter. You just have to be yourself and people with similar likes will follow and interact with you. Treat them right and they might even join your list and buy something from you. Even the newest of newbies can find good information online to get them up and running in just a few minutes. It doesn’t take weeks or months for people to find you either. You are instantly live on Twitter.

4.) Twitter helps you find other people in your niche.

You’ll want to connect with as many Twitter users as possible, but there are some that are more important to connect with than others. These are the people who are active in niches that I interact in on my blog. If you want to become known in your niche and build your own profile or brand in it, then you need to be interacting with others who are also active in that niche. Add yourself as a follower to other key Twitterer users, add value to these people‚Äôs conversations, interact with them via direct messaging, RTs, etc. Building a good relationship with these people will expand your blog much faster, as some of them will link to you and leave valuable content. Having something in common always builds trust faster too.

5.) Twitter can make your blog go viral.

I constantly see breaking news come across Twitter before I see it anywhere else. If just one person on Twitter hears some important news, it can spread like a wild fire. If you get that news on your blog fast, before anyone else, everyone will be rushing to your site to read it. Twitter is faster than the news media many times, so be on the lookout for hot breaking news and be one of the first to post to your blog and Twitter about it. Then sit back and watch your list of readers grow.

I hope these Twitter marketing tips help you grow your blog.
