In the previous post, I have wrote about Twitter and how to use it. Did you know that Twitter is also a great Internet marketing tool? If so, you may wondering if marketing your website, blog, products, or service through Twitter is a good idea. In most cases, it is, but you should first familiarize yourself with the pros and cons.
It is free. It is free to join Twitter. All you need is a mobile phone or an internet connection. To get started, visit Twitter.com and register for a free account. Select a username, password, and provide your email address. Unlike many other internet marketing ventures, Twitter requires no investment; therefore, there is no risk.
If you use the internet and stay up-to-date with the happenings online, you have likely heard of Twitter before. Twitter is a cross between a micro-blog and a social networking website. Most importantly, it is free to use.
A Twitter member will share updates with other members. These updates are called Tweets. These updates are in text format and they can be up to 140 characters each. Depending on personal preferences, updates can be sent via instant messaging, RSS feeds, email, Facebook, mobile phones or the Twitter website.
Myspace is probably the largest social network on the internet with over 107 million account sign ups to date. It is estimated that myspace now has over 15 million unique users. With its popularity rising and its members increasing, it is getting easier and easier to meet new people through Myspace. Myspace also makes it much easier to stay in touch with friends that you would normally not keep in touch with because of distance and time barriers.
I am sure you know by now that there are plenty of Myspace tools that can automatically add friends for you.
