Twitter... don't be timid

Once you set up a page on Twitter, don't be timid. Enjoy yourself while you learn to use it. To make it easier for you. I have compiled some of the common mistakes people make so you can avoid them.

1. Often people don't take the time to decide on a clear topic or topics for their Twitter page. Make your topic clear on your Profile page so people will know whether they want to follow you or not.

2. You clean your house before company comes. Don't forget to make sure your blog or website is ready for visitors before you send traffic to it.

3. People often don't take the time to write a good bio sentence for their Profile page. Don't write something vague like "I'm interested in social media." Be specific and interesting in your bio sentence.

4. Tweet in a variety of ways. Others will be likely to skip over your tweets if they all look alike. Tweet some questions for others, tweet with a suggested website, tweet with a picture for others to see, and reply to others in your tweets. And don't forget to retweet the tweets of others.

5. Many people only tweet at one time of day. They tweet when they get home from work and that's it, or they tweet first thing in the morning and that's it. Remember that Twitter is 24-hours a day. Tweet at a variety of times to hit as many followers as possible.

6. If you are on Twitter to bring attention to your product or service, don't use your Twitter account for a hard sell. Have most of your tweets (90%) about related topics and tweet about your product or service about 10% of the time.

7. Many people on Twitter are only there for themselves. It's one of the biggest mistakes people can make. Be generous to others. When someone asks a questions on Twitter, answer it if you know the answer. When someone makes an announcement about something their doing, retweet it to your followers to help them reach more people.

Above all else... don't be timid, enjoy Twitter and others will enjoy following and interacting with you.

Twitter is something I've trying to learn. I think I need to go back and look at my profile page again and clean it up.
