Have you heard of Twitter?

Most people tell me they have heard of twitter. They say, “Isn’t that the place where people, who write about what they had for lunch or dinner?”
The same could be said of the invention of the telephone by Elisha Gray and Alexander Graham Bell in the 1870’s. The intent of the invention was to speed necessary communication, not to gossip. As you could imagine, there were little old ladies calling each other just to chit-chat…but there are mature ways to use technology and immature ways to use that same technology. If everyone dismissed the technology of the telephone for its frivolous qualities, where would we be today?

Why not just do twitter myself?

Having the correct Twitter Ratio takes a lot of time and skill. To get the specific followers that you need, you have to use software that allows you to grow you twitter following and also allows you to keep the correct Twitter Ratio: followers to following.

What is your TFF Ratio?

Your TFF Ratio (Twitter Follower-Friend Ratio) is the ratio of your followers to friends (or people who you follow). The higher the ratio, the bigger Twitter impact you will make.

  • A ratio of less than 1.0 indicates that you are seeking knowledge (and Twitter Friends), but not getting much Twitter Love in return. Check your pulse, you might be a bot.
  • A ratio of around 1.0 means you are respected among your peers. Many people think that a ratio of around 1.0 is the best – you’re listening and being listened to.
  • A ratio of 2.0 or above shows that you are a popular person and people want to hear what you have to say. You might be a thought leader in your community.
  • A TFF Ratio 10 or higher indicates that you’re either a Rock Star in your field or you are an elitist and you cannot be bothered by Twitter’s mindless chatter. You like to hear yourself talk. Luckily others like to hear you talk, too.

How do I get the kind of content I need to make sure that people are going to respect me in my industry?

If you’re doing this on your own I can suggest going to google.com setting up a Google.com reader account. Find links that might have the key word that you need to publish and then link them with short links.

How do I make my links shorter?

Short links is a way of making a link shorter http://www.tiny.cc/ because the fact is: all you have is 140 characters to tell your world what you want them to hear.
Now we are getting into why most people will not want to do this on their own. It is way too time consuming to find enough links to fill up an eight hour day, much less a week or a month of useful tweets.
I can also tell you that you have to watch out for getting banned by twitter. If you are on twitter for more than a week, you are going to run into one of the hundreds scams that tells you I can get you tens of thousands of followers. They require that you pay to let them use your account to SPAM the general public to get followers. They are not specific enough to be beneficial and you end up with a lot of useless followers. You also run the risk of being banned by Twitter! If this happens, your chances of Twitter ever making you money are gone!!

How would I know if this is working for me?

One sure way you can tell is to purchase the package that allows you to know how many times people have clicked on your links and if you are becoming an influencer. You can see if what you are saying has relevance, and it also makes people go to the links that you suggest for them.

Both packages give reports, but the higher level package gives reports that will make it much simpler to tell what the general perspective of your followers is and what they think of you and your company.
I’ve tried many different ways to get the result that I sought.

I wanted to do this for my website. In the process of trying different things, I now realize I want to do this for everyone!

What if I am a small “Mom and Pop Shop”? How will this help me?

The fact that your customers are in a smaller geographical area will help with the way we build your twitter following.

We can do this by geo-targeting the followers. People that are following you can be in a radius as small as 5 miles or as far from your shop as you want to reach.

What is the best way to get started?

The best way to sign up is by giving me your e-mail address. (here? where? putting in a link??) I will send you an information sheet. Just fill it out with and e-mail it to me. Once I have the necessary information, and we decide on a package, we can get started in as little as ONE HOUR!!

Can you handle archiving we have hospitals, lawyers and financial institutions as our clients?

The answer is now yes we can!
