Internet Marketing Tips – Creating Twitter lists

Many of you have emailed me lately, asking how to more effectively use Twitter to grow and manage your Market America UnFranchise® business.  For starters, remember, neither Twitter or Facebook is a substitute for one another. They’re both equally important in the social networking landscape, as they each have their own unique audiences.  With that in mind, it is important that you get organized before you jump right in to using social networks.  Without a plan in place, you’ll end up doing a lot of back-tracking, removing people, creating new lists, etc…If you’ve reached 500 friends, this can prove to be very challenging. For people with thousands of friends, I suggest breaking your re-organizational project into smaller pieces so that you can manage them more effectively. Read More
