Promoted Tweets: New Business Model for Twitter

The questions have been asked time and again for more than a year; “Does Twitter have a business model?” or “How will Twitter monetize their business?” It appears that those questions will be answered today in part as Twitter announces “Promoted Tweets” a new service that has been in beta and will allow advertisers ads to appear in relevant search results.

Twitter users post more than 55 million tweets everyday and many of those tweets will be leveraged by companies like Virgin America, Best Buy and Starbucks all of whom are already on board. Promoted tweets provides an interesting new option for Internet marketers who have suffered the sting of a few slaps from Google in the past year.

Many savvy marketers have shifted their advertising dollars for search campaigns to Facebook in recent months and Promoted Tweets offers another option to reach a target audience in any niche.

Build Your List with E-Books and Special Reports

I have spent a considerable amount of teaching you about list building over the past few months – this will not change as it is a key to your success online. Today, I wanted to share a strategy that has worked extremely well for me and that will work just as well for you provided you take action.

Here is the bottom line, people love getting quality information for free! One great way to build your list and add value for the member of your list is to provide quality e-books and special reports that help your subscribers build their businesses and improve their lives. I have a VERY EASY way for you to do this starting right now.

My friend John Guanzon has partnered with Brett Phillips to introduce “TE Reports” a membership website that contains twelve e-book titles that you can re-brand with your links and give away as part of your list building campaigns or as a free bonus on your blogs and websites. These are quality high in demand e-books that will add tremendous value for you and your subscriber list.
