Genuine suggestions is among the best ways to build a neighborhood of loyal Twitter fans. Let me use this post as an example. When it’s posted and I’ve created a shortened URL, I might jump on Twitter and do a look for a phrase like, “need assistance advertising my blog. ” Scanning the resulting tweets will probably offer me a few opportunities to assist those who are reaching out for help.
I respond to them with some exact advice and the shortened URL. The result is usually a new Twitter follower, a new subscriber to my blog and a blog remark. Then I get all warm and fuzzy inside…in an opportunistic form of way.
