Where do you go on Twitter to find the section for networking?
One of the biggest mistakes I made early on when using Twitter was that I did not realize that the best part of Twitter was what I could learn from others. I used it as a forum to talk. Now I use it as a forum to listen.
Yes, Twitter postings and shares help my website rankings and searchability. Yes, I have been "found" more easily and by more people because of it. Yes, the contacts I have made have been invaluable... but that all happened when I started treating Twitter as a conversation and not a podium. It has been a godsend since that day.
Thank you! I am new here and to writing and to everything. I am simply overwhelmed with it all! Trying to self market a book is challenging and fun. I am going to apply some of these tips to Twitter. Thank you!
Thanks for that, it's awesome. When i look at my traffic logs i see the majority of my social media traffic coming from LinkedIn then Facebook, then Stumble then YouTube. I'm not seeing any clickthroughs from Twitter so i've been wondering if it's a waste of time!?
I have found Pinterest works to drive the most traffic these days. Then Facebook and search engines. Twitter is way down the list. Alas.
