Twitter is being talked about all over the world. In fact, the application has now been around for some time and each day new uses are found for this blog like tool. As a marketer, I’ve been wondering whether or not how it might be used to help my business.

As someone who didn’t want to use Twitter for quite some time, I finally dove in and learned what all of the excitement was about. Similar to other social networking sites like Flickr and Facebook and others, Twitter provides a forum for real time communication. It connects us all and brings us closer to others with similar interests.

One of the aspects of Twitter that is so vital to me is the ability to stay on top of information in my industry. With so many information sources out there, its impossible to consume it all. By following certain people in positions of influence within the industry I can quickly find out whats worth my time and what isn’t. More importantly, I can access information that’s been referred from others I trust versus simply trying to locate it on my own.

In addition to following people and the industry information they’re sharing, you can also find others who bring value to your day. Whether its connecting with someone who is funny or provides you with daily thought, your list of people to follow is completely in your control. This gives you a great deal of flexibility and also allows you to filter information that you want to receive.

Another benefit of Twitter is that of developing your own following. In addition to following other people, others can follow you. Over time, this allows you to build a large list of followers. You may be asking yourself what type of benefit this provides but for those of you who are marketing online, you know that its all about building a list. Twitter is the ultimate list of like minded individuals who value what you have to say, share, or promote.

After building a solid list that is comprised of followers that value what you have to say and offer by way of free information, consider how you can encourage them to move through your purchase process. One tip is to offer free information that they can register for or download from your site. You can use an auto responder to help move them through to the purchase of a product or service you or your company has to offer. This is one of many ways to benefit from Twitter.

Twitter can provide an ideal channel for building a list of prospective followers and adding value. Start with an understanding of your audience and provide valuable information that can help them succeed. Once you’ve build up a trust level, offer products or services that can help them solve a problem. This will improve your business and help your followers as well.
