The Analyze Niche Twitter Strategy (In Brief)
My personal favorite is #2 simply because it summarizes my initial plan for this website: build relationships with bloggers in various niches and share the best of the best. I have diversified my Twitter presence by adding @analyzeniche as a portal for connection with bloggers from various niches. It is crazy to see the numbers at a double-zero. I love Twitter and I get it. Most people don’t get it. They broadcast rather than connect. They spam rather than help.
Besides Google+, Twitter is the best way to publicly reach out to others in your space.
All it takes is a follow and an @reply (or a DM).
If you are a domainer or building niche sites only, consider adding a social media strategy to your repertoire. I think you’ll find it is well worth the time.
