Well, the very first thing to take into consideration is the number of people are likely to look at your update. By this I am not only referring to the amount of friends you have (which will tell you the greatest number of individuals which will look at it and possibly like or comment on it). I’m also talking about the timing of your own status update. This is an often overlooked element when posting an update, despite the fact that it is significant if you want to get the most activity as possible on your status.
So this brings us onto the key question of this article… What if you are not in business and you just want to get to know people? After all that is why you are using social media in the first place right? In order for you to get the most and give the most out of Twitter, you must think in terms of value. Most people could care less that you are having a cup of coffee, but if you mention you are having a cup of coffee and post a link to https://direct.techinasia.com/sina-weibo-microblog-marketshare/ (www.translatemedia.com) your favorite coffee recipe, now you are adding value to what you are saying.
People are curious creatures and they are often curious about the goings on with you. That doesn’t mean they want to hear about the mundane. Yet, that’s still not enough to get the mega hits you’d like to end up prospecting with. So, you’ll want to join social groups such as Facebook and LinkedIn (the leading social site for professionals and businesses) and the new kid, Twitter, with its 140-character microblogging “tweets” or posts.
A little bit of SEO (search engine optimization) isn’t too arduous. Choosing a few keywords and attending to tags doesn’t take much time. Listing with directories and indexes (Technorati is a well-known name) can’t hurt. Joining a blogging community can help – after all, if you don’t read and respond to other people’s blogs, why should they bother with yours? But the fact remains that to gain a wide readership you either have to have something reasonably spectacular to offer or a lot of time to spend on promotion.
You can ping as often as you want, however some sites will only let you ping within a certain time period. (once every 24 hours for example) Many of them won’t let you ping your sub pages if you’ve just pinged your home page or another page on your site. TinyURL is the original shortening service that offers links that never expire and don’t break in e-mail messages. You can also add a TinyURL link to your links bar. The link will automatically create a shortened URL for the page your browser is on.
Anyone who knows me is well versed on my approach. I always do the opposite of what I am told as the acceptable way of doing things. Sure, many times I fall flat on my face, but once I dust myself off I realize and am struck by how malleable I have become when it comes to thinking out of the box.
