Web 2.0 Marketing Tip #43: Email to Twitter
By Ralf Skirr.
How big is your email list? If you have been working on email marketing for some time now, you have probably acquired a good number of subscribers already. Well, are you marketing on Twitter? If yes, then you must surely discover how you can benefit from using your email list to get more customers from Twitter.
Using Email List to Get More Twitter Customers
If you began your email marketing campaign using a free email account, say, like Gmail, and then opted to use an autoresponder, you will need to manually copy your contacts from your mail to your autoresponder. Now, if you are going to use your email list to find more customers on Twitter, you will have to follow the same steps. That is to say, you will use Twitter to search for each person by email address.
Every time you find new people, you will request to follow them. Of course, not every one you wish to follow will respond and follow you back. Nevertheless, doing this will help you jump start or expand your Twitter marketing campaign, giving you a significant boost to your reach.
To achieve success with this strategy, however, you must remember to continuously stay focused on developing your list of Twitter followers and ignore all other objectives for the time being. You see, it is good to have a clear strategy. Sure, you can benefit from working on multiple revenue streams at a time.
Also keep in mind that handsome profits will not come to you overnight. Hence, if you cannot sell your products to your followers immediately, you must think that it is okay. You just have to worry about getting them to follow you in the beginning. When you already have a big follower base, you can then focus on trying different Twitter marketing strategies.
