Twitter is a wonderful tool you can use for marketing, networking, keeping in touch with your downline and for team building. And best of all it's free!
But many people still dismiss Twitter as just another time wasting social networking fad. But for smart network marketers it just may be the new killer app.
Why? Here's 3 ways you can use Twitter to promote and build your networking business:
#1 - Marketing - You can use Twitter for marketing your business by setting up an account and posting good tips and information about your products and your business. It's easy since you are limited to only 140 characters per post and you don't need to be a great writer to do it. If you can write short sentences, you can use Twitter.
Check out my Twitter account at http://twitter.com/LindaLocke to see how I do this. People can get a sense of who you are and get to know you better, which helps them to decide if they want to work with you. To promote your Twitter page, just add the link to your website or blog and to your signature file on emails, any articles you write, and discussion board posts.
Whose team would you rather join? Someone who is using cutting edge tools or someone who is still doing it the hard way? And if you want to attract younger people to your business using Twitter is one of the best ways to connect with them.
