You can certainly teach yourself how to market through Twitter though, and these tips will get you going in the right direction…

- Get to know your audience

Although it is common to see, you should not just post links in your status update box. It is true that this is a form of advertising, but it is certainly not as effective as verbally selling a product to potential customers. If you want to efficiently market or sell products through using social networking channels such as Twitter, you need to first build up a network of people who know you and trust you, only then will they feel comfortable about purchasing good through you.

- Research what people actually want

It is of paramount importance that you select a product to market that you know your potential customer would actually be prepared to buy, it is a common and fatal mistake not to research this simple point. If you are not sure what they need, then you can even ask them. Talk to your followers and ask them what kinds of products or services would make their lives easier. Make a note of what they say and then find products or services that solve the problems that they are facing.

- It is not a numbers game

As we stated earlier, it is important to get to know your audience. Adding hundreds of followers using internet tools designed to do so will not help you in the long run, it is better to have a few potential customers than a hundred ‘nobody’s’. This is because people who do not know you will just ignore your posts. You must concentrate on improving your relations with current followers first.

Take heed of the above points and you will soon be on your way to making money just like the vast number of people who are already doing so now on Twitter. Initially, you may not make any money, it could take a few weeks or even a month, but it will happen if you follow the advice given. Put the effort in and you will be rewarded.
