The Game Plan Changes Again

As of June 29, 2012, Tweets will no longer be displayed on LinkedIn BUT you can always share your LinkedIn activity automatically to your Twitter accounts.

Half the battle of building a successful Internet Business is to do your best to keep up with the changes of any website you use to grow your business online. Websites tweak their platform and make changes all the time.

A significant part of your Internet Business continual growth is to update your articles, blogs and website content when changes are made so that your followers or subscribers are informed of the changes and that is why I am updating the information I share in this article so you my followers are aware of the changes made so you can adjust what you need to adjust.

Taking It To The Tweet

Yes! Using Twitter as a form of Internet Marketing can help you direct traffic to your website and directing traffic to your website can help you build a loyal following. Building up a following of subscribers who visit your website daily, in my opinion should be a main goal BUT building up a following of subscribers who visit your website weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, bi-monthly or every few months is a huge achievement. Any visitor you get to visit your website REPEATEDLY gives you an edge over the competition. The more repeat visits to your website the more of a chance you can make a sale or recruit new members to join your business opportunity. It's a numbers game that needs to be played daily to succeed online.

It took me a couple of years to understand the POWER Twitter holds to an Internet Marketer. It blows my mind how many people live on Twitter not only to Tweet everything they want to share but to read Tweets posted by Twitter accounts that they follow. Twitter is a powerful free tool that helps Internet Businesses AND Store Front Businesses. Businesses who post daily help themselves stay in front of their loyal following and not so loyal following. Keeping a business name in front of any audience can make a huge difference to a businesses bottom line.

Link It Up To Twitter

Using Social Media as a form of free Internet Marketing is a no-brainer. Getting past the learning curve to easily blast your Marketing Campaign to several free Social Media Platforms with just one click of the mouse takes a little practice but so worth the time to learn. Linking up a Twitter account to your Youtube channel, Facebook, LinkedIn profile or to your Youtoo account helps you blast a Tweet to many different platforms at the same time. Social Media used properly is a powerful free Internet Marketing tool.

We all need to take that first step to learn something new and learning how you can benefit using free Social Media Platforms is no different. Helpful step-by-step instructions do help you learn but watching educational videos to follow steps helps you learn much faster compared to trying to do it on your own.

I spent a couple of hours connecting my Twitter Accounts to all of the Social Media Platforms I use to Internet Market free online. IT IS WORTH THE TIME to Link (connect) as many Social Media Platforms to each other as possible. I learned how to use Social Media through trial and error so I thought creating short Internet Education videos to show how it is done would help visitors learn faster. Of course we all have to do to learn but getting help along the way does help shorten the learning curve.

It's just a matter of preference

Some of you may want to post Tweets to your Twitter account and have those Tweets posted to your Facebook but then if you are like me, you may want to post on your Facebook and have the posts Tweeted to your Twitter account. I like posting to my Facebook and let that post get automatically sent to one of my Twitter accounts and then have that Twitter account Tweet to my other Twitter account. Yes, remember to link your Twitter accounts to each other to help reach more of an audience with less work.

If you have two, three or more Twitter accounts, take the time to connect them to each other. Start with Twitter account #1 then link Twitter account #1 to Twitter account #2 then link Twitter account #2 to Twitter account #3 and so on. One Facebook post will get Tweeted to all your Twitter accounts or one Tweet from Twitter account #1 will get Tweeted to all your Twitter accounts automatically.
Teach yourself how to work smarter not harder.

Link LinkedIn Account To Twitter

Don't forget to link your LinkedIn account to your Twitter. Each time I post to my LinkedIn the post gets sent to my Twitter accounts. I do my best to connect all of the Social Media Websites I use to each other.

Social Media used properly is a free powerful Internet Marketing Tool.

Youtoo Social Media

Being online almost everyday does help me stay on top of my game and a part of staying on top of my game is to keep an eye out for new and upcoming Social Media Platforms and websites that help with SEO (Search Engine Optimization).

In September 2011 a new Social Media Platform hit the web and it's called Youtoo.com. It's an awesome website that connects it's members to the Youtoo Television Network and one of the features that it offers are Social Shout Outs. A Social Shout Out is simply a text message that you can set to automatically post to your Twitter, Facebook, Mobile Device AND to the Youtoo Television Network. Yes, millions of the Youtoo TV viewers will see your Social Shout Out scrolling across the television screen.

Another powerful Social Media Platform I'm growing to enjoy and use daily is Pinterest. Wow!!! Pinterest has exploded in popularity at a very fast pace. All I can say is learn how to use the Pinterest platform because Pinterest will eventually help you get indexed to the Search Engines.

If learning how to use the free Social Media Platforms is intimidating, take your time to set yourself up. Practice a little each day or week and before you know it you will have all of your Social Media Platforms connected.

      I have a gradual increase of followers on Twitter and Pinterest each week; I am able to post to both of them via one click, so it makes it easier. Voted up!
