About Viral Marketing, Twitter & Getting Free Twitter Followers

My Sports Market has joined Twitter and we plan to update our tweets regularly. You can follow My Sports Market on Twitter at; Twitter.com/MySportsMarket. We registered all of our sports blogs and websites on Twitter as well. As I am sure you are aware, Twitter is an absolutely fantastic and surprisingly easy was to gain followers, readers, and customers. There are a plethora of ways to promote and market your own products and affiliate products on twitter. You can gain hundreds and thousands of followers by putting your link to your twitter page on your blog sidebar or website. You can also follow other people in your genre to gain followers. Gaining followers is like building an email list with newsletter subscribers which is not only a necessary tool in online marketing, but is the best way to acquire customers and readers.

A new style of popular online and internet marketing using Twitter, Facebook, and other social network sites is called 'Viral Marketing'. Many people don't understand what Viral Marketing is and have no idea what the word means. A lot of people in the online business are afraid of new marketing tactics because they think it requires too much additional work. But, Viral Marketing is not only easy and fun, but the possibilities are endless. Using Viral Marketing, you can get thousands of free Twitter followers without being at your computer.

I would like to give my fellow sports bloggers and website owners as well as new online marketing fans an idea of what Viral Marketing means and how it's used. First of all, there really is no basic form of Viral Marketing and it's a pretty broad term. But, the general idea is that you would use social networks and web tools to spread your affiliate links, product links, videos, books, games, etc. You can use a tool or create something that has a high probability of spreading throughout social networks. I would like to provide you with a few examples that not only will give you an idea of what Viral Marketing is, but it will also help you implement it on your own sites or Twitter pages.

Below is an elaborated and educational example of Viral Marketing using twitter. It may seem complex at first glance, but read it carefully and check out the free tools I provided you will understand it. It's actually quite simple and very interested. None of the links I provided below are for paid products. It's all free info and tools that you will find useful and educational.

First, please take a look at this Free Twitter Followers Chain System. You can use it if you'd like as it's a great free way to build followers of your twitter page. It works like a chain letter type system, where you follow five people on your Twitter account and you pass your Chain System link along with you name automatically on the top of the list and automatically removing the last name from the bottom. You then post Free Twitter Followers Chain System link on your twitter page, and it keep getting passed along as you gain hundreds, even thousands of followers in the process. This is pretty a basic example of Viral Marketing as you are using social networks to build followers and potental customers on your list. You can see "mysportsmarket" on the top of the list. Try it out and you will build lots of Twitter followers.

But, we can the Chain System Tool even further. This is such a useful and popular tool. I found it just the other day and posted it on my twitter page. I have already seen at least 20 people posting their chain link with my twitter ID on the third and forth spot on the list. I started my twitter page three days ago and got 50 followers in three days. So, it obviously works. Everyone wants to gain thousands of free folllowers. Even non-marketers want to gain followers because they enjoy it. It's become a massive social fad. Celebrities even talk about how many followes they have. Because this tool is so popular and useful, we can use this Free Twitter Followers Chain System to our own advantage.

The Free Twitter Followers Chain System that we just talked about is something that you can offer as a free gift or product. What I mean is, it's something that you know about and not everyone else does. So, why not get something more in return for passing it along instead of just posting it. I have found a Twitter Promotion Script which is completely FREE and a very simple tool. With this Twitter Promotion Script, you can upload it to your website which requires a person to post a message on their twitter page in return for access to a website URL. You can view and download the free "Twitter Promotion Script" tool for free, by clicking here.

So, you can post a message that allows the person to access the Free Twitter Followers Chain System by going to a URL. But, in order for the person to access the free chain system, they will have to enter their twitter name and password which will automatically post a promotional message (of your choosing) for you. So, you will get a free promotional message (of your choosing) on that person's twitter page, and they will be taking part in your twitter chain system which will help you gain followers as well. You are double dipping; getting the promotional message of your choice on their twitter page and and watching your Twitter Followers Chain spread at the same time.

You also have to pick a promotional message to put in the Twitter Promotion Script that will be posted on the person's Twitter page in order for them to access the Free Twitter Followers Chain. I am sure most of you have a product you want to promote. You can have it set to post a message about your website with a link to your website or blog URL. You can just put a general affiliate link on there as well. It's a good idea to post an affiliate link that has to do with Twitter followers and perhaps making money online.

I suggest you check out these useful tools and affiliate program, called "The Twitter Report". The Twitter Reports offer lots of free tools and advice on how to make money or twitter. They also have some tools that you can buy. I just used the free ones. But, you can also create a "Twitter Report" affiliate link to earn money. So, when you tell other people about it, you earn commissions if anyone clicks and purchases a paid product. I was putting my affiliate link for "The Twitter Report" in the Twitter Promotion Script. Therefore, if someone wanted to access the free chain system, they would post my affiliate link on their twitter page and then they would get the chain with my twitter username on there.

This is a great example of using Viral Marketing to promote affiliate links and products as well as gaining thousands of free Twitter followers. Just one person following through on the system I used a above will help spread and promote your products affiliate links and help you get free twitter followers all at once. I know it seems very detailed and confusing, but I just wanted to explain it so that a novice can understand it. Check out the tools and read it again, and you will get it. When posting it on your Twitter page, it looks very simple and very organized. I hope this gives you an idea of how Viral Marketing works and how you can use social networking sites like Twitter to promote products and affiliate links.
