This article focuses on the 7 most repeated mistakes made on Twitter by bloggers and internet marketers.Here is a list of 7 oft-made mistakes on Twitter by bloggers and Internet Marketers…
1. Following Too Many People
There are quite a few websites which have a list of users who guarantee a follow-back. You can follow thousands of Twitter users, merely by clicking on a button. Many of them would follow you back, except most of these followers will hardly pay any attention to your tweets and then obviously, there are many auto-follows. If you desire real reach in Twitter, make sure that the number of people you follow increases naturally. Else, no matter how many followers you have, they are unproductive sources of traffic and reach for you.
2.Eliminate Auto Follow-back/ Auto-Direct Message
This is a major indication that you could be a spammer. Remove the Auto Follow-back feature from your account pronto. If you were a celeb or someone really important, then you could have automated it. Furthermore, auto direct message and auto follow back make a person feel that they are not in connect with an actual person. Hence, one should always make the effort to manually follow back the followers, after checking their profiles.
You should not stuff URL links on your Twitter page and in your profile page background image. Put your link where it is supposed to be, and not all over the page. Stuffing URLs all over your profile makes you look like a spammer, and desperate. You are distracting attention from a single link which the user could have clicked and subsequently gained access to all your other links.
4.Maintaining a Poor Tweet to Promotion Ration
It is true that all your followers are aware that you will use Twitter as a promotional tool for sure. They get put off when you begin to maintain a poor tweet-promotion ratio. They also seek extra value, besides the links to your blog posts and your affiliate recommendations. If you do not succeed in giving that to your readers, then you are involuntarily putting them off.
5.Do not market anything through the BIO section
The contents of the bio should be restricted to what you/your company, is about. An unimpressive bio will not only put-off real users, but will also result in more users not following you. The selling and the marketing of the products can be done at other places than your bio section.
All of us are aware that Twitter enables us to add an Avatar. Undoubtedly, it is a major branding opportunity. There a quite a few people who undervalue avatars. What one should realize is that it is the avatar which distinctively makes you tweet stand out and give you an identity. The usernames can get too confusing to browse through and hence, avatars should be either a personal photo or a logo for easy identification.
7. Poor combination of Twitter with your Blog
Some bloggers just do not advertise Twitter enough on their blog. Twitter has rapidly become a major way to connect with your readers. You should start treating your blog and Twitter as a single entity rather than separately.
