Twitter is one of the most popular social platforms online, and for good reason. For marketers and internet entrepreneurs, twitter offers one of the best conduits to directly connect with a target audience, providing quick and easy access to updates and open communication within the relevant niche. You should not underestimate the power of twitter.
Twitter can also be an exceptional tool when building campaigns and generating targeted traffic. A common strategy that works well on twitter uses “link bait”. Link bait means posting tweets that garner a lot of attention, re-tweets and responses. Link bait can be focused around a specific website or product, but most commonly involves discussion of a current event or news story. While it’s not always easy to link a current event to your niche market, you can get creative, and find something to stir emotions. You’ll be surprised at just how effective this strategy can be.There are many different opportunities available to you if you take the time to explore recent news, buzz and current events. Think of fresh and innovative ways to tie that content into your advertising campaigns. Think outside the box!
I was thinking of ways to apply these principles to this website, and came up with the thought that nothing stirs emotions more than competitive games or some other type of contest. So, how do you go about it? I considered producing a video, but I am not good at it. But a picture could be just a good, used in the right way. So here I present the result of my labors, an infographic of the final showdown between me and Conan O’Brian for the total domination of twitter. And it seems I am loosing! The gall of the guy! I can borrow a monkey, too!
