I love Twitter! Every week I receive blog readers, interview requests, newsletter subscribers, and clients and customers from Twitter. Why does this happen? It happens because many people on Twitter know that I am an expert at helping business owners get more newsletter subscribers and clients online, so they turn to me when they need help with getting clients or they would like to interview someone who is an expert at helping business owners get clients.
This will work for you too. If you become known on Twitter for your expertise many more people will want to interview you, read your blog, subscribe to your newsletter and buy your products and services.
So how do you let people on Twitter know about your expertise? How do you promote your expert status and become seen as an expert? Here are three tips for you to accomplish just that:
- Promote Your Expert Status In Your Twitter Profile. Start from the very beginning. If someone on Twitter wants to learn more about you, where do they start? They go to your profile.
Use your profile to communicate your expert status in your field. You don’t have to call yourself a guru or an expert, but you must provide enough information to communicate your expertise. Use your bio to provide information about who you are and what you do.
- Help Others. Many experts share their expertise and use it to help others. There is a lot you can do on Twitter to help others. You can offer tips, re-tweet their requests, and answer their questions.
Many people re-tweet (share with their followers) tips that they see. This means that if you share tips that resonate with your followers, your followers will share them with their followers. This dramatically increases the number of people who see your tips and your expertise.
- Share Your Blog Posts On Twitter. Your blog posts help you share tips, demonstrate your expertise and attract clients. Another great way to demonstrate your expertise on Twitter is to share your blog posts with your followers.
There are two ways to do that. One is manual. Every time you write a new blog entry, post its name and a link to it to Twitter. That way your followers will see the link, follow it to your blog and read your post.
You can also automate posting your blog posts to Twitter. Use an application called Twitterfeed to automatically post your blog posts to Twitter. With Twitterfeed all you have to do is create a blog post. Once you do, it will be automatically posted to your Twitter account and your followers will be able to read your blog post, without your having to do anything for it. This is a great way to automate the promotion of your expertise on Twitter.
Remember, people like to do business with experts. Follow these three tips to demonstrate your expertise on Twitter and you will start seeing better results from Twitter very soon!
