1.  Over-Promoting Yourself

You want to mention your site from time to time, but doing so constantly is a turnoff. Find the balance of promotion, engaging, humor and link-sharing tweets to get the best results.

2.  Tweet Too Much

Tweeting every hour, shouldn’t you be doing something else like managing your business?  How often should you tweet? My recommendation is tweeting twice a day.

3.  Consistent Tweets

When someone visits your Twitter profile and notice that your last tweet was over two months ago, why should they follow you?  Having a steady tweet, the more people will see what you are writing a more likely your followers will click the link that you provided.

4.  Auto Bot Tweet

Remember to be human when you write. No one likes to see tweets that appear to be Spam.  Be creative, it is possible to share information about your site and products without sounding like a you are a robot. Look for natural ways to introduce your business in a conversation. Get your follower’s curiosity up enough to click your link.

5.  Mindless Tweets

While not every tweet needs to be profound, each should do one of three things: start a conversation, share something or interact directly with a Twitter user.

6.  Not Interacting

This is my pet peeve. Twitter is all about dialogue and interacting with your followers and mentioning the experts in your community. Participation is a must. If your Twitter feed is a one-way conversation, you are missing out on valuable opportunity to build relationships with your followers.

7.  Not Following People Back

Unless you are a celebrity, you need to follow people back who are following you. This is the key in building your relationships with your followers.  Take a look at each followers’ profile, they may teach you something new.

8.  Following the Wrong People

Many people want to follow as many Twitter users as possible, so that they in turn will be followed. Search for keywords to see who’s talking about your industry. Follow people in the industry, bloggers as well as consumers talking about the products you sell.

So remember.  Learn the netiquette your followers like, and take the time to listen to those conversations; you’ll soon get the hang of this Twitter thing in no time.
