Get More Twitter Followers Today For Free!

Since today is the day Twitter croaked for a couple of hours, step 0 is to make sure Twitter is working?
What I did was to post on FriendFeed which posts to Twitter so the posts will be up when Twitter’s back or use Hoot Suite to schedule tweets later.

Chris Brogan tells how to do it for FREE – without Spam and without using a Third Party firm.

I won’t steal his Thunder or list his points. They’re worth your time reading.

I’ve found Twitter to be great for building a network… not for selling. And the network I’ve built is for my non-profit activities and interests outside making money.

One thing I hate is being spammed by people involved in some game that has you add people to their family or whatever. I don’t have time for games, sorry.

If you’re on to Twitter for a fast buck, I’d say forget it.

You may be able to get readers, visitors, traffic, etc. to a page where you can sell something. If you’re recommending music or a book at Amazon.com you may be able to get some low revenue affiliate sales that way. But big dollar sales? I don’t think they’ll come fast on Twitter.

If you’ve found a way to make that work, let me know!

    Truth that only way for Twitter users to earn money is trying to get people to their sites and increase traffic/sales number. I agree. I see Twitter just as a tool to make business site bigger/better or more popular and I don’t like that idea. Why? Because Twitter is a social networking site that should bring people closer. And all the site does is providing some tools to increase sites traffic. I don’t like that idea at all.

    Chris definitely had some good points! Twitter is a unique program. Nobody likes spam, so you have to be creative.

    Yeah twitter is a great way for quick snapshots into other people’s life and maybe as a trigger for other people to visit your website, but its not the worlds best sales tool.

    My recommendation? Just have fun with it!
