Anxiety Over Social Networking Sites

While many people are taking advantage of the Social Networking Sites that are out there, there are some people that are fearful. According to Power Reviews and E-Tailing Group Reviews done in the earlier part of September 2009 some brands are hesitant to give into Social Media. They are hesitant because they fear their competence. They also fear that other potential prospects might find social sites more engaging then the actual brand site. If this is your fear check your competitors and make yourself a better site.
To miss out on Facebook and Twitter to name a few would be closing your eyes or better yet shutting the doors to profitable leads. Since this is where the most traffic is headed you need to get in there. Check out Alexa.com to see the top visited sites. You will see the Social Networking Sites ranking in the top 20. These sites will benefit you in so many ways: spur word of mouth, increases engagement, build brand loyalty, etc..
The biggest barrier standing in between these disbelievers is the misinterpretation of these Social Media/Networking Sites. The belief that Social Networking Sites are a waste of time or meant for teens. The fact is that Social Networking is the new thing and will remain the new thing for quite awhile. So instead of denying yourself this, jump aboard. Take advantage of your key to success. The fact is Social Networking through Social Media Sites is the next "BIG" thing. This allows you to generate potential targeted leads to your business with minimal work.

This program allows you to do 2 things. 1-automatically follow people back who are following you, and 2-unfollow all those who are not following you. This will allow you to get rid of the people who are going to be no good to you and your business. It also follows who follow you which shows that you genuinely care about them. This also brings up a great point that others are using this program and have more than likely unfollowed you because you are not following them.

You're Finished!!!!! Do this once a week and you will increase followers and get rid of the nonsense followers. 
Just remember you want your twitter to be your first form of contact that will lead them to other social sites like Facebook. Keeping in mind that twitter allows you to advertise the most without spamming. 

Using Twitter To Get Targeted Leads
















1-Go to your twitter account and log in make a note of how many people you are following.
2-Open a new page and Go to http://www.twittgeek.com 
3-Select/Click the green button in upper right hand corner that says "sign in with twitter."
4-Enter in your username and password and select Allow (This allows your twitter account to connect with twittgeek.com)
5-Then you will see a place to enter a keyword. (This allows you to target YOUR prospects. If you are interested in people who are looking to make money online then an example to type in the box would be: "Make Money Online" or "Work From Home" or "Affiliate". Make sure to put quotations ("")around your key words and spaces in between each word.
6-Then press start. 
7-Be patient because this will take a while because twittgeek is searching the twitter database for your keywords. 
8-You can do this every day (Actually every 24 hours) using different keywords. Be Creative in your keywords. 80% of the time people will follow you back.
Also through using this tool you will understand that others are using this too. So what you put in your tweets may end up being keywords that others are searching. ( I will show you cool programs for best keyword searching for twitter and social media accounts, and what is the most popular tweet and or topic that people are talking about so you can take advantage of this too.)

*With any application that you work with along side twitter they will try to advertise through you by putting a tweet on your page. This program for example will put something like "Learn how I get 200 followers a day......" All you have to do to delete this is:
1-Log into your twitter account
2-Scroll to the top of your page and select HOME
3-On the right hand side you will see your following/followers/and tweets. Select tweets. Those are your tweets you have put up. You will probably see for example: "How to get 200 followers a day........" Move your mouse to the right of the tweet and you will see a trash can icon that will allow you to delete that tweet. That way you can get your tweets in there and not advertisement tweets.

The reason why I am so eager for you to stick with twitter is because its the most powerful social networking tool out there. Let me explain:
How many other sites can you send out a message 100 times a day and not let it be spam or for people to think that you are a jerk? If you did this with email people would HATE you if you sent 100 messages in Facebook, Myspace, etc.. people will block you and may report you and you will be kicked off of those sites. Also keep in mind that people who are on twitter are there for information. As with the other social sites, the majority of people are looking more for friends and business partners. To avoid spam and to get peoples trust with twitter i suggest you follow this % module: Make 40 % of your tweets free info and or help (if you don't have free stuff to give away I will give you free stuff when you opt into my webiste and you can turn around and give it your twitter followers for free.) cool news ex: Make the other 40% of your tweets personal things about you so people can trust you by getting to know YOU. Lastly 20% can be selling. (I will tell you later the best way to do this which is called soft selling. Very Powerful.) If you do this you will make money quickly and easily. 

The most powerful thing about twitter is that you can direct them any where you want them to go. Example: Twitter to Facebook, Twitter to MySpace, Twitter to your personal website and or your company's website through your affiliate link. 

I will show you later how to make your Twitter background site somewhat like mine,  http://www.twitter.com/lindsayb921 with your own personal free picture and cool background. Getting a background with personal character boosts your credibility by not having a twitter pre-made background. 

Another good tip is to not follow someone that doesn't have a picture on their profile. More than likely they are just a waste of time. If they can't even spend two seconds to put up their picture, chances are they are not going to give you two seconds to listen to what you have to say about your business.
