What a Twitter List Does for You
A list of Twitter followers can be a gold mine or an annoyance. Do you know the people on your list? Any business list you create should have professional contacts only. It’s all in the list. That’s where the money is at. By trimming your followers to those that are important, each time you create a tweet, it could turn into liquid gold really fast for you. There are two types of Twitter lists.
1. Your public list
2. Your private list
It is up to you to arrange your Twitter list from your online account. You can sort your followers into public and private formats. The people that you want to send offers to can be private if you choose. This keeps the entire world from knowing your plans.
A Twitter list is great for internal marketing of your own followers. There is a cool way to use it for external marketing too.
You can do a public search of lists for the followers you have and non-followers! This provides you the ability to join a list that someone else has created that is related to real estate or other topic you want. Just think about that for a moment. If you are marketing to buyers, how great would a list of pre-qualified buyers be on someone else’s hot list? You can market a tweet directly to their list and expose the properties that you have for sale. You can do this as many times as you want and join whatever public lists you feel like. A single tweet is all that it takes to your “lists” and you could really be raking in the dough.
