Whether you are a devoted Twitter user or not, it is time to give the service a second look. The Blair Stover blog is a place where you can learn all sorts of ways to increase traffic to your website or blog. In the case of Twitter, there are at least a half-dozen methods for incorporating the service into your blog to drive readers to your unique content.

One of the easiest, low-tech ways to pump up your blog’s readership is to use a TwitThis button. By simply pasting a tiny bit of code into your blog’s HTML, you will be up and running. Readers will have an easy and quick way to share your content, and all they have to do to spread the word is click the TwitThis button.

Using Twitterfeed is another simple, quick, and powerful way to build up readership for your posts. The Twitterfeed lets you automatically update your Twitter feed from the blog’s RSS feed. Whenever you post on your blog, your Twitter feed is updated. You can even customize the format of each tweet.

When it comes to social marketing, be it Twitter or anything else, remember not to overuse the system. If you are constantly posting and tweeting on the same subjects, and not adding any new content, then you might just turn off more readers than you attract. Be sure that each new blog post or tweet carries fresh information. Try to be succinct, direct, and helpful.

If, like many Internet marketers, you are attempting to build up your personal brand, then be professional with your social marketing activity. By posting and tweeting quality information on a regular, but not too frequent, basis, you will rapidly gain readers and customers.
