One of the hottest trends in internet marketing has been the advent of Twitter. All kinds of marketers have jumped on the Twitter bandwagon and published all kinds of products that teach marketers how to monetize this social media juggernaut.

However, some people really miss the boat when it comes to their Twitter profile.  Here are several ways you can boost your Twitter presence and get more followers.

Get a nice Twitter background!

The days of having a plain-Jane twitter background are over.  If you are serious about your business you need a good Twitter background.

You can easily hire someone off one of the freelance sites like Scriptlance.com and Elance.com to create a nice Twitter background.

You should have at least your photo on the background so people can know who you are. Further you should have the following:

1) Your name

2) Your website

3) Your Facebook page (if you don’t have one get one)

4) A brief summary of who you are and what you do. This doesn’t have to be long.  Think about people who come to your profile for the first time. They want to know more about you

5) Your LinkedIn Profile page. If you are not familiar with Linkedin you can go and check it out here: www.linkedin.com

Have a good Bio!

Most people’s bio’s are really bad.  You need to have a really good bio that has a link to your website. Think of it as another way people can get to know you and follow you.

It is a good idea if you have an opt-in mechanism on your site. That way you can start building your list from your Twitter followers.

These tips alone will really boost your Twitter profile so you can start getting more followers. Believe it or not there are people who will click on your profile when browsing who is following them.

Live, Love, Laugh!
