3 Quick Tips to Attracting Leads from Twitter

1. Turbo-Charge Your Twitter Bio Section

I can’t believe that there are some folks marketing out there in Twitter that don’t make use of their Bio to generate interest. Some people actually either ignore putting anything in there that substantive or it’s totally irrelevant or uninteresting to their target audience. Here’s a tip, put as short slogan followed by powerful one-word phrase descriptions of who you are preceded by a Hashtag (#) so that it can come up in searches. Make sure these are descriptives that would be of interest to the people you’re trying to reach out to.


For example:

“I Make Home-Based CEO’s | #MLMMentor | #LivingMyDream | #ExtraIncome | #WorkAtHomeCEO | #Motivator” | #FullTimeMom”

2. Provide a Second Link in your Profile for People to Learn About You

If you’ve got the URL of the business you promote in the appropriate link field in your profile, that’s good. But did you know that you can also add a second link in your “Bio”?

To add your Link, first click on the person icon (next to the blue quill icon) in the top right hand corner of the Twitter page. Next, choose “View my profile page”. Then, click on the gray and black “edit your profile” button in the top right hand corner. In the bio section, you can now include a link. Be sure to use a link shortener like Bit.Ly, since you only have 160 characters.

In regards to the link, you just don’t want to add another opportunity link here. You want to improve your “know, like, trust factor” with those who connect with you or are curiously clicking through your profile. So you want to be strategic. I recommend that you create an “About Me” page so people can link to it and learn more in-depth about you and hopefully your page will link to your opportunity. If you have a blog (and I recommend you do if you’re serious about making a living online), you could use a page from your blog as the link and place it right after your “slogan” in your Bio.


For example:

“I Make Home-Based CEO’s http://bit.ly/About-Jim | #MLMMentor | #LivingMyDream | #ResidualIncome | #WorkAtHomeFullTime”


3) More Vroom Vroom in Your Profile

If you really want to turbo charge your profile and generate leads, put a link connecting to a welcome video page with an opt-in form or link, I generate a lot of leads like this.

Here’s an example of mine:

“Living the Laptop Lifestyle, http://bit.ly/meet-jim | #MLMMentor | #LivingMyDream | #ResidualIncome | #WorkAtHomeFullTime”

I also use that link in Tweets or Private Messages back to all my new Twitter followers. I regularly generate leads with this strategy.

Onward and Forward!
