Make Money Mini Blogging - Should You Use Twitter?

A blog takes time, but what if you could blog just 28 words to make money? Mini blogging is a new trend online. Discover how to make this form of marketing work for you.

There are several different mini blogging applications you can use; Twitter is one of them. I admit, when I first discovered Twitter I thought it was a waste of time, but lately it's become one of my favorite marketing tools.

Warning: Mini Blogging Is Not Direct Marketing

The mini blogging tools are a form of social media; they keep you in touch with your friends. This means that using them as a direct marketing tool, by twittering items like "Buy this [link]" for example, will ensure that no one pays attention to you.

Since these are SOCIAL tools, use Twitter to make friends first. Then your marketing will be a natural extension of your social activities.

How to Use Twitter for Marketing

Since you can't market directly from Twitter, you need a Web site or blog to share your marketing endeavors. Don't be concerned if you don't already have a site. Build your relationships on Twitter, and when your site is ready, you can Twitter about your work on the site, to provide an immediate flow of traffic.

Once you have a Web site, link the site to Twitter by going to the Settings tab on Twitter, and adding your URL to the More Info URL field, and pressing the Save button. Now your site is accessible directly from your Twitter Profile. Anyone who want to learn more about you, can access your site.

Then just continue to add items to Twitter. If you're promoting a new product in affiliate marketing for example, tell your Twitter friends about it. But lots of fun social messages too.

The big benefit of Twitter is the social network you develop, and the constant and increasing flow of traffic to your Web site which develops from this. As your Twitter followers increase - and the people you're following increase too, your network and traffic grows. With more traffic, the make your mini blogging activities generate grows too.
