Don't understand promoting with twitter...

Although I've thought long and hard about twitter and promoting on it, I can't get my head around it. I understand facebook PPC and all that but not twitter. I have a twitter account and only follow like 20 people as none of my friends have it.

The website I want to promote is only aimed at a small niche - web developers and designers. Can twitter do this or is it a complete waste of time?

It can get you traffic by reaching out to people having the same interests. But that's a bit dicey. The conversion rate is low. It works well if you have some informational sort of blog or if you are promoting an affiliate.

You should try to find by searching in the search box. And than add them to your twitter.

Next time they also add you. this is very easy you should try this way, so you can get it.

If you develop a strategy to build followers, twitter can be beneficial. I have over one thousand followers and they are all there for the same thing, web marketing, business. I have also encountered a lot of people that are web designers. I recommend once you have a handful of followers click on their followers and look at their interests and the reasons they are there. I guarantee in no time your list of followers will grow. You then start tweeting about whatever you have to. Keep in mind though not to send the same message more than once. Their rules have gotten stricter... Good Luck!

But some twitter followers are just "junks"..they just auto spam their posts URL onto the tweets and that's all they do!

If you try to enter the twitter world with the intention of just promoting stuff, then its waste. Yes you can promote your website a lot there but still you first have to build a good network with hundreds or thousands of followers by following considerable number of people.. then its worth it.

Yes, nothing is easy on this life. You need to build a good network with quality followers, then you have to get reputation. Once you have done your efforts, promoting and getting "retweets" will be easy.

You can get more followers simply by being yourself and by sharing some interesting information rather than just plugging your business. I recommend this way of going about things. Hope this helps.

I use twitter from last 6 months and found it a good tool to keep your niche group updated . We can also earn some traffic from it. Twitter is a tool which can used for branding your organization. So it is the good tool if used properly.
