If You're in Network Marketing NOW is a Great Time to Join Twitter to Grow Your List and "Brand" Yourself
First, what is Twitter?
Twitter is another fantastic way to build and stay connected to your audience.
It's probably one of the easiest social marketing Web 2.0 sites to set up and start using.
As we should all know by now, building and communicating with an audience is the key to success in business. Social marketing helps build relationships with your audience.
That's the fundamental message in the new network marketing model (also called 'attraction marketing'). By building an audience (such as an email list) you're able to deliver ongoing information to your 'contacts' that is deemed valuable.
This builds you up as a trustworthy person to know, buy from, and do business with.
- You can put your 'offers' in front of your audience.
- You can find high quality network marketing leads from your 'list' or audience.
- Your audience is a real asset that follows you forever, regardless of whether or not your MLM company goes out of business or not.

But building an email list is just one of many ways to build and communicate with your audience.
In the social Web 2.0 world, you can build a fan club (which is your 'audience') at many social marketing Web 2.0 locations also called social networking sites.
Here are just some of them you may know about:
- Social book marking locations like Digg, StumbleUpon, etc.
- Hub Pages
- People can follow your blog posts with RSS
And these are just a few examples, which we've been teaching you inside Marketing Merge Professional.

Another fantastic way to build your audience is by using Twitter.
Twitter is amazingly simple. It basically works like this:
You give people your Twitter web link. For example, I give out http://www.Twitter.com/MikeKlingler
I might send that to my email list, give it out in various blog posts like I just did, or share it at FaceBook, etc. When people go to that address they can quickly choose to 'follow' me on Twitter.
Getting Started With Twitter for Business, Networking, Lead Generatation & Attracting Sales
If someone follows you on Twitter it means that each time you send out an update about something, they will see it.
This is similar to a feature at Facebook where you Update everyone about what you're doing.
People who are already using Twitter can find you there. For example, if you choose to 'follow' other people, then their audience will see you. If they have seen your name or face before in the social web 2.0 world, they may click on it and decide to 'follow you.' Your audience grows.
If you post a good blog article, Squidoo lens, Hub Page or some other article or web post, you can post it there at Twitter very quickly. Everyone who is following you will see it. That means more traffic and exposure to that Blog post or article, which is what you want.
But even if you're not promoting something like an article (or whatever it may be) you can still send a message update out on Twitter from time to time that keeps your name and face in front of your audience.
Introduction to Twitter for Business and Networking (and Leads & Sales): Watch After You Have a Twitter Account to Get Going
Since those people who follow you on Twitter see your update when they log into their Twitter account, it's just more 'branding' exposure for you. I might let people know on Twitter that "I'm currently working from a nice coffee shop on my laptop off the Oregon Coast." Those who follow me on Twitter see that and think, "Hmm... he lives a cool lifestyle," and once more they see my face and name. While they peruse the Internet and they see an article with my picture and name again, they are more likely to read it.
The more people see you and hear from you--the more they are apt to buy from you or want to know more about what you offer.
Twitter is another great way to do that. And it's probably one of the most simplest of ways... it's very easy to sign up and use it.
So if you have a Twitter account, follow me by going to http://www.Twitter.com/MikeKlingler and stay connected to my updates and news on Internet Network Marketing.
If you don't have a Twitter account yet you can get one there as well.
Why NOW is a Very Good Time to Promote Twitter to Your Email List and On Your Blogs, Squidoo, etc...
Mike Dillard, of Magnetic Sponsoring, has one of the biggest lists in network marketing--who are learning Internet attraction marketing. His list is way larger than 100,000. I don't know exactly what it is but it's far bigger than that.
You want to connect with and 'service' his audience because they are the future leaders of the network marketing industry. You want to connect with them and collaborate with them.
By the way, Dillard wants you networking with those people on his list as well because that just adds more value to the entire growth of the industry.
Dillard just emailed his list of 100,000+ of these people about joining his Twitter.
So a giant number of people are learning about Twitter for the first time. Over the next days and weeks, this is a time to create blog posts, lenses, Hubs and content about Twitter.
This is the time to get your Twitter URL link out there.
I wrote an article recently about 'leveraging the launch of Black Belt Recruiting.' In that article I discussed how you can create content on certain topics in your target market that many people will 'all of the sudden' be searching for and talking about... to give you more exposure. This is another example of that kind of an opportunity.
So get a Twitter account if you don't have one. If you have one (or once you get one) start "following" lots of other people so their audience is exposed to you on Twitter (so your audience grows). Get on Mike Dillard's Twitter as well. You want to particularly network with those with large audiences.
Create content about Twitter, even if it's short and sweet so you can market it (as we teach at Marketing Merge Professional). That could get you ranking high on the search engines for search terms related to Twitter and network marketing, etc.
Do this stuff and your audience will continue to grow and you'll be positioned in front of this huge revolution as millions of people start looking to the Internet and seek out guidance from people like you.
Follow me on Twitter and get started (it's easy) at http://www.Twitter.com/MikeKlingler
Get your own Twitter account. If you have one, promote it to your email list and all possible audiences. Create content on it. Act quickly and you'll leverage the buzz that Dillard has started about 'Twitter,' which translates into building your audience BIGGER--and that's the goal.
