What Impacts Do My Tweets Really Have On The Tweetosphere

Marketers tend to get more horizontal leverage on their Tweets. This occurs for a variety of reasons the first that they are really good with the relationship game. Expert marketers approach the Internet like a job rather than a fun place to listen to music and drop an occasional blog post. Marketers are in the game for the long haul and forge deep relationships and great search engine placements. Their sales funnels point to their Twitter accounts as well as their websites, blogs, landing pages, forms, and whatever other concoction they have going.

Attraction marketing is a good place to start if your want maximum penetration of the tweetosphere with your tweets. The 140 words must be good. The content you link to must be good. All of the same rules apply to tweets as they do article marketing. Keywords, subjects, action words, and wise statements all make great Twitter link bait fodder.

I am not sure if the re tweet is the best judgement of the success of a post. For example some of my best memes have been horrible articles. The content will not engage people like it should and accordingly will not lead to any conversions even though the post was in and out of the feature slot for a long time. On the other hand I have marketed a product directly to twitter. The blog post was so obviously a pitch. This post got re tweeted once. And I can directly verify that I got a few twitter app back links and the product ranked a little too well. Basically I got some money. In this case there was not much substance in the post, but it did direct people to a product so in one sense I was reducing the time and space continuum of online commerce and saw a reward. I got a few nice checks from this. This is why people who automate Twitter account make so much money.

One free and easy tool measure the effectiveness of your Twitter use is Tweet Reach. Twitter Reach posts the stats on any search term including user contribution, impressions, and charts these things. Tweet Reach also has a full stat pay service for people interested in that. This blog for instance is not exactly popular but has seen millions of impressions on Twitter which could help the brand via word of mouth because brand recognition need not mean that they hang on the site. An example of this is when I was a Face book noob I used to talk of things I found just to sound cool. In all honesty I was too lazy to even visit the site. I was much happier just browsing, leaving stuff on people's walls, and thinking I had it made. This is why the meme is so powerful because people just pass it and always will. There will always be stuff to pass. This is a hot market that has a long tail in search engines so there is always value in breaking news both immediately and in the long term.

I believe the best strategy is to play good. Build your brand, and your skills over time. Learn the tools and tricks. Evolve into a social media master. It is not that hard if you really want it. Most guru's will tell you otherwise but they usually want people to not take initiative and evolve into a big online money maker.

That would equate competition. And if you were actually honest and liked teaching other people the skills then you would be taking away many conversions from the 'experts' who prey on people who think the answer is just buying something, or slipping an email into a box that is guarantee spam for life. Play your game and you will win. I am not kidding. Step it up because social media is what puts the rat race to bed.


Understanding Economic Chaos

I do not understand much of what the economy is doing, did or what will do. But I knew we would be here.

Loren Howe has an amazing YouTube channel on this subject. Loren Howe also wrote some good books. Some good points that Loren makes applicable to this site are that when we put money into the market and banks it largely gets ripped. He recommends putting money into stable currencies like precious metals and real estate. I thought this is extremely interesting because many entrepreneurs make this point. Much of being an entrepreneur is working around the money system. Loren Howe makes many other great points that we need to free ourselves from the money system by understanding it. According to him it is best to avoid wage and debt slavery and not fear going broke either. There is a lot of good information check it out. Anthony Weiner has a good response video as well. He makes some good points about the price point of economic entry to New York is in the millions and why this happened.

I then clicked through to watch a great YouTube video about the collapse of the middle class. The speaker is Elizabeth Warren a Harvard professor. The lecture is at the University of California. This video makes some haunting points. Everything points to the fact that most people are in a lot of pain now and why. I make these points a lot with friends and it seems some people are in on it and others do not really believe it. But a Harvard professor can make the point much better than I can.

For a little upbeat inspiration it is a good idea to check out Dattatreya Siva Baba and his great videos.


The Re - Emergence of Online Auctions

We can safely say that the impact of eBay and Craigslist in the online economy is huge. Allowing people access to some of the best auction tools on earth has led to some people really striking rich fast.

In online auctions reputation is extremely important. The best sellers often have well organized online stores, and malls and can move products quickly like a business does. This means having stock and marketing scarcity as well as speculative prices. Where supply and demand meet is where the auction begins.

Mastering the art and science of the online auction, and online trade sale is as much niche branding as it is setting up a system where you can consistently deliver high quality reasonably priced products to people who honestly want them. World of Good on eBay for example sells products related to the green lifestyle. They left the niche pretty broad so they could bring in cool specialty products and not have them clash with the title.

Swoopo is a great site that sets up both real and false time constraints. Swoopo lists the product with the bid, the real price, and the time remaining. This creates an urgency and the potential for people to make more money. Obviously people could apply this to any storefront or marketing that time constraints do product results. Because often what people save when they shop online is time and money.

Bid or Buy is an auction site with an amazon like sales structure. Bit or Buy also has product affiliates that both hype the business and help sellers unload products. Bid or Buy's products are not fixed so the tags are negotiable. This also drives the economy because many times reluctant buyers are fixated more on the price than the item. Sellers generally want to unload old stock so this is the perfect store for Internet commerce.

Lixtor plays a different game. Lixtor actually helps people through the process. This is a good thing because becoming an eBay power seller is extremely difficult. This is probably the future of online commerce where there are instructions to further lower the barriers of entry so all people can drive home cash.

There is also a tremendous demand world wide for junk. For example when college gets let out people jam the dumpsters full of useful stuff. Or when a car does not work people will often abandon it on the road side. There are entrepreneurs who collect this stuff and salvage it. Much like an under the sea treasure hunter people love to just trash or not use valuable things. Further there are companies who scam people for this stuff. The best way to get around this scam and make a fortune off of your junk is an amazing Texas based site called Salvage Sale. Basically this site specializes in all kinds of broken and unwanted stuff, and people are getting rich buying, selling, refurbishing this stuff every day. This is how an efficient economic system works when both the buyers and sellers profit. For example a person who fixes up old cars would buy some busted up cars, combine the best parts, add some new ones then resell the car for a profit. Car flipping is just a profitable as house flipping (was).

Another new rising trend in commerce online is trading and barter. People realize that money can distort value so there can be a huge profit margin for people who essentially trade stuff for things. This is a lot like trading forex based on the fluctuating value. Sometimes when people ship stuff somewhere the supply and demand curve can completely change.

A good trade example would be that a wicker furniture builder in North Carolina would trade furniture with a Robot maker in Japan. If we switch the products in location there becomes a scarcity and both people can become rich. Taking the dirty money, exchange rates, fees and other none sense out of the equation only makes the economic viability of this type of trade more magnetic.

Online auctions are not without their pitfalls. There is an increased need for honesty, and to deal fairly. This is why many power sellers do their best never to misrepresent what they sell. Because they realize that short term gains can have long term effects like their auction stream dries up. Then what?


How To Incorporate Craigslist Into Twitter

The real problem with Craigslist is the time constraint put on an entry. Instead of having to re post Craigslist listings it may be easier to just promote your classified ad really hard. The natural best place to do this is Twitter.

Luckily a Twitter tool called Twit List can automatically help you with that. Basically Twit List uses a Craigslist feed to update people's Twitter followers. This way you can just keep posting on Craigslist and drive traffic to the listings.


How To Attract A Few More Twitter Followers For Your Account

Getting more followers is a genuine focal point of people with little social capital on Twitter. It is good to have more people hear and interact with your conversation. It is also good to hear what other people have to say right from your account.

Recently two similar services have taken the Twitter world by storm. One is called the Twitter Train and the other is called Max Follows.

The way both of these services work is that we enter our Twitter account details. We then follow around 30 people from a list. After we follow them our own avatar is added to the list.

The flaws to this system may be that the only reason people follow is because they want more followers. As a result this is not the best way to drive targeted followers. If you want to do that create a blog in your niche and hyper link to your Twitter account. Then promote your account on your blog, around the web and in social media. (related to your niche)

Also many people I predict will unfollow over the course of a week. But even if these Twitter traffic systems gain us a single follower I guess then it is worth it.
