The Twitter Effect!

If you haven’t yet created a Twitter account then you are really missing out.

This service has exploded in growth in the past few months and I don’t see it slowing down anytime soon.  There are now MILLIONS of users and it’s becoming really mainstream. In fact i see Twitter related sites popping up all over the web.

I’ve been running some interesting tests and I’m already seeing some great traffic results — far greater than the traffic from Facebook or any other “Web 2.0” service.

Facebook and the others certainly have their place, but Twitter is more powerful.  At first I didn’t really “get it” but now I do and the traffic stats don’t lie.  It works.

As a communications tool, Twitter is probably only second to email right now. It’s a great way to network with people as well as to drive visitors to any of your sites, blog posts, or sales pages.

But Do Not Wait…

Create a Twitter account now and start ‘following’ the people that you want to follow. Others will eventually follow you in return.  Observe how others post and you’ll quickly learn the culture, etiquette, and uses for Twitter.

It’s not rocket science.  In fact,  it’s a lot of fun. Just watch this short video on Twitter:

You really need to start today because the sooner you start the sooner your followers list will start growing and more people will see your posts, which will then virally grow from there.

Make Sure To Follow Me! There is also a link to Follow Me, right here on the Blog.

I’m actively tweeting ( explanation is below) all the time.

Create an account then go here:

Click the “Follow” link that shows under my photo. There is also a link to Follow Me, right here on the Blog.

That’s it.  Every time I post you’ll see it in your main “timeline” area.

After you click to “Follow” me look at the right-hand side of my profile page. Click the blue “Followers” link and you can see all the people currently following my posts.  Follow some of these other marketers also, if you like.

Twitter is extremely viral. When you make posts (called “tweets”) they can be exposed to all the friends (followers) of others.  Then they can choose to follow you.

I think Twitter is going to really evolve into a “must use” marketing tool.  It’s a great way to announce you’ve just made a new blog post, released a new product, or anything else you’re up to.

I’m already seeing 40+ visitors each time I make a tweet that I’ve made a new blog post.

So trust me, this is no flash in the pan.  In fact, this may be one of the most powerful marketing tools ever, depending on how it evolves.

But so far you’d be crazy not to use it.  It’s producing great results.

Take 2 minutes to create an account, you’ll want to do it now so you can at least get your name before someone else takes it.  Or your company or product name, etc.

Just go to:

Then visit my page at:

And click the “Follow” button that is displayed under my photo. There is also a link to Follow Me, right here on the Blog.

See you on Twitter!

You will definitely want to be following me on Twitter because I’m going to be doing some really cool stuff with it soon.

May All Your Ventures Be Met With Success,

Omarra Byrd
