3 key quick facts about Twitter
* Twitter is Safe.
Your contact information is protected, and it takes just the push of a button to block a threat. As a result, people interact without the fear of intrusion.
* Twitter is Real Time.
Studies have shown that immediate interaction is the key to accelerating intimacy between two people.
* Twitter is Short.
With a 140 character limit, prospects will not think twice about baring their soul because brevity creates the illusion of security.
Here’s why this information should excite you. Since time immemorial, marketers have long been taught to “enter the conversation in your prospect’s mind.” To tap into it, engage it, answer it - Being the solution to their deep-seated problems. Creating an invulnerable bond and relationship.
The more effective you are at getting into the conversation, the more wildly successful you will be. Here’s the amazing thing …
Twitter is like one big mental conversation. It almost taps brainwaves - (try it if you don't believe me)
Getting into your prospect’s mind has never been easier.
But because its absolutely two way - the prospect is always allowing you to move ahead in the 'pitch', if you are trying to 'push' too hard - they can block you in an instant.
So its the perfect marketing tool because of its power and its ability to keep both seller and buyer true to each other and themselves.

| Twitter Followers and Following Limits Explained
To help control spam, maintain the integrity of the network and prevent that dreaded Failed Whale from showing up too often, Twitter maintain limits on how many people you can follow and how often you can follow. For those who don’t know the limits, this post will lay them out.
Maximum Following Limit: 2,000 or 110% of Followers
The maximum number of people you can follow at any one time is 2,000 or 110% of your followers, whichever is higher. So, if you have less than 2,000 followers, you can follow up to 2,000 people.
If you have more than 2,000 followers, you can follow up to 110% of that figure. So, if you have 5,000 people following you, you can follow 5,500.
Maximum Daily Following Limit: 1,000
Twitter limits the number of accounts that a single person can follow in a day to 1,000. For a long time, this limit was not evenly applied across the network. Many users were able to follow far more than 1,000 per day. However, Twitter recently started to enforce this 1,000 per day limit on all accounts.
Maximum Followers: Unlimited
While Twitter place limits only how many people you can follow, there are currently no limits on how many can follow you. This explains why new accounts like Oprah surged to almost 500,000 followers in less than week. However, if Oprah wishes to follow all those people back, she’ll have to do it 1,000 people at a time.

Many social networking Web sites have lots of bells and whistles. Sites like MySpace and Facebook let users build profiles, upload pictures, incorporate multimedia, keep a blog and integrate useful or bizarre programs into homepages. But one Web company with a very simple service is rapidly becoming one of the most talked-about social networking service providers: Twitter.
Twitter's history is entwined with a few other Internet companies. Twitter's founders are Evan Williams, Biz Stone and Jack Dorsey. A few years before Twitter was born, Williams created Blogger, a popular Web journal service. Internet giant Google purchased Blogger, and Williams began to work directly for Google. Before long, he and Google employee Stone left the Internet giant to form a new company called Odeo.
Odeo is a podcasting service company. According to Williams, he didn't have a personal interest in podcasting, and under his guidance, the company temporarily lost focus. However, one of Odeo's products was just beginning to gather steam: Twitter, a new messaging service. Stone gave Twitter its name, comparing the short spurts of information exchange to the chirping of birds and pointing out that many ring tones sound like bird calls [source: San Francisco Chronicle].
As the service became a more important part of Odeo, Stone and Williams decided to form a new company with Twitter as the flagship product. Williams bought out Odeo and Twitter from investors, then combined the existing company and service into a new venture called Obvious Corporation. Jack Dorsey joined the team and began to develop new ways for users to interface with Twitter, including through computer applications like instant messaging and e-mail. In March 2006, Twitter split off from Obvious to become its own company, Twitter Incorporated.

When it comes to creating a new business system generally, you can spend yourself to death. This particularly is true if you elect to start a new business in the “brick and mortar” world. However, you can lower the costs associated with starting a new business enterprise if you select a home based business venture and if you select a venture that is based on the Internet and World Wide Web. Thus, by electing to establish a home based internet marketing business, you will be able to really reduce the costs associated with starting your business enterprise.
If you do decide on starting a home based internet marketing business, and you have weighed all the pros and cons, go for it. But when you start your home based marketing business you will need to remain dedicated and focused on you task. There are no “easy money” opportunities on the internet, so don’t be fooled. Hard work and a solid business plan are the only tools you will need to be successful with your home based internet business.
Doesn't that sound easy?
But...Which business - why?
How do you even check if you don't know what you dont know?
Its the internet - whats for real - what isn't?
Here are some basic questions that you need to answer then at least you know what you don't know.
But you know it
If we don't consume the market grinds to a halt.
As we see -watch Gm/Chrysler/Ford/Air Canada etc grind to a halt without us
If we are not given money (credit) and incentive to buy (constant advertising) the market place disappears.
So - Hold that thought.
What if you went to a manufacturer say of something consumable, in a competitive market and said - I have a group of friends(affiliates/A network) and we will all agree to buy your brand when we are looking for your type of product.And only your brand.
For this guaranteed consumption - what will you give us in return?
The manufacture may say - well our great product.
Not good enough, we can get great product anywhere, everywhere - doesnt have to be yours.
So think No advertising costs, no persuasion no special market place display, no coupons, no gimme - we will buy - no questions asked,
Again -what will you give us?
What do you want?
How about your advertising budget and a wholesale price. We will split the advertising money up as income throughout network based on consumption and we all get to buy at the same low price.
You make profit, you just don't have to retail it
What have we created?
Instead of the simple act of consuming. You/we consume and get paid to consume - like an endorsement fee, an individualized consumer endorsement fee.
The Product can be toothpaste, deodorant, computers, drinks, popcorn anthing consumable that logistically we can ship and store and work through.
But who is going to ship and store and track all this consumption?
Who is going to run the numbers to pay the income throughout the group?
We hire a company. We give them a portion of volume. In fact the best thing would be to hire a warehousing company that has some corporate clout to attract other manufactures.
And that's what we do.
We set you up so you create a marketplace that - yes markets and sells, but also and in addition gets paid for the very act of consuming.

- True Affiliate Marketing, is a business that provides real products and services to real customers, and generates - RESIDUAL INCOME.
- That is -
- A Franchise/Affiliate business allows you to create income with , eventually, less and less time required to generate an ongoing income.
- A Private Franchise, requires little or no start up cost, a template to create and run the business, and no ceiling, no territorial boundaries, and no income restrictions.
- The only restriction on growth and profit - is You.
- A private Franchise is Your Own Business, though you are part of a Group for buying and penetration power. Though you have a servicing agent and training company. Its your business. In your name. And never never reverts back to someone or can be bought out by someone or something. And if built correctly will run after your lifetime.
- Let me repeat that -
- If you choose to design it , a Private Franchise allows you create Residuals to such an extent they outlive you and are willable income (if you so desire) to your family or your favourite pet, charity or whatever.
As in a true Public Franchise, you as the Franchisor retain a percentage of your affiliates sales.
A residual income.
Up to you -
a large business is $8,000, to $25,000 a month - every month, every year (many earn more, many earn less)
A moderate business $3,000 to $6,000 a month, every month, every year (average estimates)
If you have a lot of profitable affiliates - you will benefit from a large residual income.
As in a Public Franchise, you the Franchisor have a responsibility to your affiliates to train and serve them so that they can become profitable.
If you do not provide a true service to your customers. You will have no customers
If you do not provider a true service to your affiliates. You will have no affiliates.
