#1 Use a Relevant Username or Handle

Picking a Twitter username is really important, and it is actually the first important decision you may before creating a twitter account (though you can always change it later). You need to select a username that is relevant to your niche, for example, this blogs twitter handle is @techydoor mainly because it is the blogs brand name and it also describes this blog in a way; the “Tech” this shows it has a thing with technology.

I have discovered that some people don’t even add their website link to their Twitter profile, and this should not be so. There are going to be lots of people that will check out your profile and they will end up on your site via your profile.

You should write a short descriptive bio for you twitter profile, with your keywords in it, but don’t make it unreadable and mainly for promotion.

# 3. Mingle With People in Your Niche

As you know, Twitter is a social networking site, and a social networking site according to my understanding is a place to socialize, connect and network with like-minded people. Therefore, if you want traffic from twitter, you should not just have a twitter username but rather, you should follow, communicate, and tweet other people on twitter who have the same interest as you.

The best way to do this is to make a search on twitter with keywords in your niche and connect with people that have a link with these keywords. Retweet other people’s Tweet and they may eventually retweet your tweets too and thus help you get more traffic.
