Recipe One - Monitor all tweets from a small Geographic Target area, and add those people to a special Twitter List of local tweeters.

Recipe Two - Monitor all mentions of a local organization or event hashtag, and add those people to a special Twitter List.


The Hidden Power Of Twitter Lists

Once you configure your Recipe on IFTTT, the service will continue to monitor Twitter for your criteria. When a person tweets something that matches this criteria, they are added to your specific list. This user gets a notification about being added to your list - and this may be your 'first sales touch' with a potential customer.

Share Your Lists To Gain More Followers

When you create a new list for people who tweet the hashtag of a specific industry trade show or event, share and announce this list on other social platforms like Linkedin Groups, Google+ Communities and Facebook Groups.

Finally... Time To Turn Likes and Follows into SALES

Once you have grown a respectable list - you can start using 'Promoted Tweets' to show a special offer to people who are on your list! Link this special offer to a mobile friendly landing page that converts this person into an email subscriber - and you are well on your way to building a relationship, and perhaps a sale.

There you have it, a concrete, little known way to Market Locally With Twitter.

Doing More With Twitter - Attending Trade Shows Virtually

For the cost of travelling and attending just one show as an exhibitor, you could use Twitter to consistently generate high quality leads from every Trade Show and Industry Association Event throughout the entire year!
