Following is a list of tips that I used to get more traffic from twitter;
1. Select a User Name according to your posts
It is a must to select an appropriate user name for your twitter account. Appropriate means it should be related to the niche you posting on Twitter. As an example if you are posting on computer related items (like RAM or VGA) it is good to add a user name related to computers.
2. Make an Interesting Twitter profile
It is required to fill up your profile fully with all the details. Those may not be true details, but it should be filled up. It should be filled up with interesting content, otherwise no point of making a boring profile.
3. Make sure to put your website/blog URL in your profile
If you put your Website/Blog URL on your profile, it will be easier for your readers to access your website/blog.
4. Promote your Twitter page as much as possible
Send the link of your Twitter page to friends and relatives. At the same time you should put your Twitter links inside your comments on other blogs/websites. And ask others to follow you and follow them back.
5. Search people with similar niche
Search people who are posting on similar niche and who are interested in similar niche. Follow them and ask them to follow you back. Followers are the key to get traffic through your tweets. 2-3% of your followers will visit your blog per day (My personal experience). If you have 1000 followers you will get around 20-30visitors per day. You think this is not enough, but just imagine if you have 20-30k followers, what will happen.
6. Be an active member in Twitter
Active means not spamming. Active means respond to your followers’ messages and visit their links and comment on those posts. Then they will do the same for your tweets.
7. Tweet regularly without spamming
Since Twitter is a media you need to keep your audience by feeding them with high quality content. Regular posting will keep your visitors active. But never post low quality content to your visitors. If you do so, they will neglect your messages. Tweet only useful content (If you feel this post is a good one to know, go below this post and tweet it to your followers).
8. Use Twitterfeed and get the best out from it
Go to twitterfeed.com and configure your feed for Twitter. This will make more traffic to your blog/website each time you update it.
9. Add Twitter gadget to your Website/Blog
Twitter gadgets will easy your readers to follow you on twitter. So add a gadget which will help them to follow you. Flying Twitter Bird is a better gadget since it moves with scrolling of the page.
10.Leave your Twitter link on everywhere on web
Use social bookmarking sites and other social networks to promote your twitter page and it will help you to get more followers on twitter.
These are some of the main ways which I used to get traffic from Twitter. Try these out and always think out of the box to get more from Twitter.
