I agree! I think the follower base grows when you don't make your Twitter feed all links and just trying to promote a product. "Tweeples" like to follow actual people and not just a company trying to spam and just get followers. As Gary also said, it's about networking and not selling.

IMO, Twitter is a great avenue to network. New tweets refresh easily (well, still depends on how many entries come in) and conversations are easy to have; and the dynamic design of Twitter makes people are more responsive to posts. Twitter is a nice medium to keep track of people and businesses and an efficient way to share news about you and your business as well.

i've been using twitter to try and connect with businesses that may be interested in my product. I have actually gotten some responses.

I also think its important to build up a twitter following, because you can use a twitter follower button on your sales page as "social proof".

For example, if you have twitter and facebook buttons that show you have 300 followers, it lends a little credibility to your website and boosts conversion rates.

It is all about the more tweets you publish.

Its a good idea to set up aggregated twitter accounts, that are keyword specific and then drop a gang of curious phrases and then a short URL link to constantly be in the feed of your followers. You increase followers daily and traffic is good.

Make sure the content your sending them to is good.

I always say:

The first impression you made to acquire someone's attention is one of the things you are going to have to keep on doing to keep there attention.

I recently shared some twitter advice on my blog.

Agree. It's like you're fooling yourself, too.
