How Many Twitter Users Are Active?


How many of Twitter users are really active actually? I found some interesting data and would like to share with my readers.

This statistic data is analyzed through the end of 2009, and came out the following summary:
. Twitter ended 2009 with just over 75 million user accounts. Wow!
. The monthly rate of new user accounts peaked in July 2009 and is currently around 6.2 million new accounts per month (or 2-3 per second). This is about 20% below July’s peak rate.
. A large percentage of Twitter accounts are inactive, with about 25% of accounts having no followers and about 40% of accounts having never sent a single Tweet. :(
. About 80% of all Twitter users have tweeted fewer than ten times.
. Only about 17% of registered Twitter accounts sent a Tweet in December 2009, an all-time-low.
. Despite these facts, Twitter users are becoming more engaged over time when we control for sample age.

(Data provider: The Metric System by RJMetrics)

From the data, among 75 million user accounts, 25% of accounts having no followers and 40% of users never sent a Tweet. There are around 20% of the users are highly active on Twitter, so it will be about 15 millions users.

Why there are so many "abandoned" account on Twitter?

I believe that there are still many people have not yet explore the power of social media. Those 15 millions highly active users are the people who know how to use Twitter correctly with truthful mind and goals. Those 80% of people are still finding their purpose on Twitter, and the correct ways of using Twitter.

I think I was one of the 80% before. However, after years of study, I managed to be one of the 15 millions that tweets a lot. Why I love Twitter? The reasons are simple, you will understand more here...

Are you one of the 80% or 20%?

What Should You Learn About Twitter For Business?


When we talk about Twitter for business and marketing, it is very straight forward that we will think about earning money on Twitter. With very incomplete understanding about Twitter marketing, most people think that it is just about sending promotion links to their followers on Twitter and they can earn money. If they failed to make sales on Twitter, there are two major reasons only - not enough followers and not enough tweets. Because of these two reasons, people will buy Twitter marketing software in order to help them to automate their works of gaining more followers and sending more and more tweets everyday. Is this the Twitter marketing that you understand?

The above situation happens on thousands of Twitter entrepreneurs nowadays. They are doing a very wrong way of business on Twitter. Try to think deeper, why people do not want to buy from you? Or will you buy a product on Twitter? You yourself will not buy from a stranger on Twitter definitely. The main reason here is there has no trust between you and your customers yet. If you are new on Twitter, you should learn how to gain trusts from your followers. This is the most important element in any business. Without trust, it will be very hard for you to market a product, unless the product owner himself is popular and trustful enough.

The next thing is about branding yourself positively and correctly on Twitter. You do not like to be marked as spammers on Twitter, do you? I came across some Twitter accounts that had been suspended before, and they had created many Twitter accounts which sending out same tweets every day and nights. These Twitter users had created a brand for themselves on Twitter successfully - spammers! They are not lovely users on Twitter, and do you think that their products can sell on Twitter? I think it is difficult. So, branding yourself correctly is very important when you started to join Twitter community. With positive image on Twitter, more people will love to read your tweets.

Getting followers on Twitter is one of the keys to success also. However, it is not about the quantity, but quality of your followers. It is really easy to get thousands of Twitter followers in few days, but will those followers read your tweets and become your customers? Besides becoming your customers, Twitter followers can become your joint venture partners in your business also. There are many success stories that people find their business partners on Twitter and expand there business even faster. If you follow your competitors, you can even get some of the customers from their hands through Twitter and convert them to become your customers. The matter here is how intelligent are you doing your personal branding on Twitter.

In order to learn all the skills mentioned above, you have to do quite a lot of researches on Twitter. However, to cut the road short, you must take a comprehensive home study course of Twitter Dynamics.

Goals of Twitter Marketing


There are many success stories about marketing on Twitter. However, there are even more unsuccessful stories and people feel that they have been cheated! What happened to those people who failed to earn money on Twitter, even they know how to use all the applications and software that associated with Twitter? The main reason is that they do not have a clear and correct goal before they start their Twitter marketing process.

I can tell you that in order to success in Twitter marketing, do not think about money too soon. Your goals will not be related to money at the beginning. However, with these ultimate goals, money will flows in automatically, sooner or later.

In order to success in Twitter marketing, your first goal must be building your presence online and establish your credibility and then obtain trust from your prospects. Everyone who follows you on Twitter is a prospect. And if you expect people to follow you and know of you, you must work on building your presence first. Establishing yourself as an expert goes hand in hand with presence building. Why should people listen to you? Do you know what they do not know? Are you already doing something they want to achieve? And when you have defined your Twitter persona, you will attract like-minded people to follow you. Like-minded people attract one another. Birds of a feather flock together.

When you successfully build your presence and gain trust from your Followers - and remember, trust is a priceless commodity that cannot be bought with money - this will give you permission to start striving for your second goal: to network with other people that can help you grow your business. We are talking about potential joint venture partners and will-be customers.

You see, you want to become the hunted, not the hunter. If you start approaching the big players for joint ventures or try to persuade customers in the shoes of a "nobody", no one will take you seriously. You cannot do big things in the shoes of a small player. You have no choice but to be a big player in the league yourself.

It is okay to start as a newbie, but it is definitely NOT okay to remain a newbie. Your ultimate goal is to be an expert at what you do, and in this case, become a Twitter marketing expert. This is why trust and credibility building are very, very important goals to start with. When this is nailed down, talking to other people is a lot easier.

There are a lot more things to learn in order to become a real Twitter marketing expert, that I can not put them all in short articles.
