When most small business owners think about Facebook, they want the best way to make money out of it. I think the way we can look at Twitter is to look at how many links we can create, and not look at the money.You may want to check out Business Data Inc for more.
Another thing about Twitter we need to think about is that it’s a social site. Customers don’t want the web sites to be bombarded with a million different sales ads or ties. We are there to receive knowledge from you, just to figure out what is happening in your world. Instead of doing everything you want to market the messages to your clients, think more about how you can supply them with information that will help them out. Another choice might be to submit a funny tweet, like a connection to a funny video. Whatever you do, make an effort to establish relationships with people-don’t try to sell stuff to them all the time.
Twitter’s great feature is its ability to connect with users in your marketplace. This is something that other people have skipped out on. All you need to do is use Twitter’s @ feature to get their focus. This is useful for building ties with prominent people or potential business associates. You may use the DM option as well, but I’d aim to establish a friendship before sending personal messages. Note, be a buddy whomver you speak to. You don’t want to misuse the machine and tweet your business concept or joke to the individual every 5 minutes that you just heard. Just be a cool person and try to help out if you can, and the person you want to interact with will get remembered over time.
Another advantage on Twitter is being able to follow other interesting people. I think it’s important you’re taking this slowly; don’t follow 4000 people right after you launch your account. Join and get to meet some interesting people in your business and what they’re talking about. Absorb the details it holds. The nice thing is that you will be watched by some men, because you both support the same guy. This will help you win followers when starting on Twitter for the first time.
One thing I would say is that you do not feel the obligation to obey everyone who comes after you. In reality that may be a negative thing. It indicates that while you follow less people you have more power in your business than you are following. Again, remember not to go wild when you first set up your account, and follow a ton of people. Start slowly, and obey people you care for. You’ll be able to build connections with those people over time.
