If you were to take the time to analyze it, the social networking service called Twitter is really a simple concept. Users can send and receive text based posts of 140 characters or less. These posts, or tweets are received by anyone who has signed up to follow you or your business on the service. However simple it may be, the fact is that Twitter can be an outstanding tool for your online internet marketing business. This is due to the fact that Twitter has more than 100 million users, and many of them are in need of your product or service.
Twitter can be used to update your followers when a new post is published on your blog, or when you are running a promotion or having a sale on your product or service. Those who follow your tweets will often be motivated to check them out, which results in more web traffic for you. Of course, you can also use Twitter yourself to follow others. This can show you what subjects people are interested in and the things they are searching for online, giving you a quick glimpse into their wants and needs. By following the tweets of others who have shown an interest in your niche marketing, you can determine how you can help them to meet these wants and needs.
