Tips on using Twitter to generate Sales Leads for your Business!


I’m relatively new to the world of Twittering, hence my lack of use of correct dialect when blogging about it. However in the short time of using Twitter I’ve utilised some pretty cool tricks into how to use it to generate new sales leads for our online art business, and I’d like to share some of these tips with you to use in your own business.

These days most people seem to be using Twitter mainly for the pleasure of it all or for breaking short random news or gossip about what they’re doing and where they’re doing it. The same can be said for Facebook in some ways, not very many people understand fully the potential of using these two social networking giants to make money in their line of business.

Ok so here are some tips for you online business owners looking for a new revenue stream for your online business using Twitter.

Assuming you already have a Twitter account and have not made much use of it; now is the time. We opened our Twitter account back in September last year and have since built up 2,000 targeted followers in the following fields, art, photography, blogging, business marketing and interior designing, a nice selection of random topic related followers you might say.

What you need to do is pretty much the same, and that’s to build a solid number of industry targeted Twitter followers that are somewhat interested in what you have to offer, whether it be a line of products or services.

This process unfortunately isn’t a quick one, nor is it a slow on at that. Aim to build around 300 to 400 unique followers each month, if you’d like to read about how to build Twitter followers affectively then click here.

Once you have a good number of followers say around 3,000 you can then start the process of promoting your products and services on Twitter, and so here are some tips in doing so.

1. Add a tweet and retweet button on each of your product or service page of your website. This way your visitors can share your products on their own Twitter account and so forth for others to see.

2. Retweet your own product pages; choose a few different ones each day and Tweet at internet usage peak times of the day if possible.

3. Add the URL of your main product listing page to your Twitter profile.

4. Offer a unique discount to buyers using your products or services who are following you on Twitter.

5. Review your products and service on your blog and share your posts on Twitter.

So there you have it, I hope this is enough to encourage you to consider making better use of Twitter for your business.

  1. Yes, its mostly common sense, but when you see it written down, its just so straight forward. Of course the product has to be a solid one too, no one will buy something just because its there, but this is very sound advice, and I’ll be putting it to good use!
