    Hi,

    Those of you that use Twitter for the purpose of driving traffic to your site. Is worth the time and effort?

    Not in my mind ^^. I left it after a few months. It DOES help with branding and keeping in touch with your CURRENT list though =].

  3. I have been dissappointed with Twitter.

    I have thousands of followers and had great expectations.

    I would say it is not worth the time and effort. There are more productive ways of getting traffic.

    yes it worth my time. it give me traffic and lead. dont just tweet about your business in twitter. Use it like you use other social media to connect to your friend. provide some good tweet for your follower and try to Retweet them as they provide some good info [​IMG]

    Yes, it can be, but as noted you can just be "spamming" you biz opp. Set up a blog that has info about your biz opp and then tweet your post. Give the twitters some substance, sometime.

    If it's done right it works great. It earns my wife and I several thousand every month.

    I get some traffic Twitter because my Ezine articles are automatically posted on Twitter from the back office of Ezine articles. So that doesn't take any effort at all. I only spend time clicking on followers and so forth, but hopefully I will start to convert so of my traffic.

    I agree you just can't advertiseyou won't get much out of it. You really have to make friends just as you use this forum or any other.

    I like twitter and I believe that it has its uses. I have about 5k followers and it does help to direct traffic to different sites. Like everyone is saying though, it is a community and is best if you engage and use @ responses and RT often as well.

    I agree that it is hard to get traffic from Twitter. I have a big follower list, close to 1000. However, getting anyone to click on any link on my tweets are almost impossible. On a good day, I get about 5 twitter referrals at the most.

    Hi Jay,

    As with anything else, it depends upon how well you use Twitter and how good your site is.

    Twitter can give you a traffic if you handle it properly. It seems like twitter is full of spammer. [​IMG]

    just use twitter to tweet what the new thing you are doing, and not just the tweet the same thing that people will ignore [​IMG]

    I get a few hits a week, maybe 8-10 and its the ezine thing with me as well. I do tweet a few times a week nothing about business at all. Don't use it that much. Only about 200 followers and I have noticed a lot of spam. I end up with a lot of people who have a business in a box following me and I prefer to stay away from that.

    I think too many people are buying into the Twitter/Facebook thing & if you start reporting your movements & hopefully get followers & visitors to your business & a few sales from it, then all the best.

    Personally I have weighed up the pro's & con's & feel that If I devote to much time to the social networking sites, I'll end up feeling like a Twit !

    Hi Mark,

    That and you won't have time for your own site.

    I use Twitter mainly to network and follow those who have knowledge in my areas of interest. The traffic is moderate at best. I've received a lot of program offers claiming to "show how to explode your twitter traffic" but have yet to take the time for a closer look. Anybody know if any of these twitter traffic programs actually work?

    I monitor twitter traffic to my website forum, and posting 1 link to a particular news item on it brings about 40 or so visitors straight away. whether or not they are robots I dont know but it definetely does bring traffic if you have followers.

    It depends on how you gonna handled it. Well honestly, I get some 13% traffic using twitter. We all know that twitter is full of spamming. And some user don't follow those account who's obviously going to sell anything. It has a technique when you want to get success in twitter. And it really needs effort and time.. It's up to you if you want to stick with twitter. [​IMG]
