Twitter seems to be a force to reckon with, but I am still skeptical about how much time and effort should be spent on it. Mostly people post narcistic items that no one else pays attention and/or comments on. The power of Twitter suggests that it has the power to build a community of followers who care about what you post, but I have not seen that except in very rare instances. But worth continued efforts I suppose.
Lisa, This post is a gem for business owners! You've given so many great examples of ideas for tweets, most of which I had not considered before. Thanks so much for sharing your ideas here.... Who would have thought about tweeting FAQ's? Great stuff! Thanks again! To your continued success, Robin
Thanks Lisa for a great post. I'm really just now getting into Twitter. Can you tell me more about creating a “shout out" page or site? Michael
Great post Lisa. I never thought about using twitter for FAQ's. That is a very interesting idea. We will need to take a look at that. Thank you
Hi Lisa, Twitter has become my #1 go-to social media tool. It's a great and quick way to connect without all the personal stuff that can take up so much of your time, if you allow it to, on Facebook. It's a powerful tool when used correctly to build far and wide, why wouldn't you want another free source of traffic? :). Thanks for sharing! Janette Stoll
Hi Lisa, Agree that twitter is a very popular and well used tool. However I must admit that untill a few months ago I just could not figure out why. Great post...I am here as a member of TSA. Cheers Bryan
True there is no such thing as a stupid question. Considering we have been told what to "think" all of our lives, it is not surprising many don't know how to think outside the box when it comes to marketing or using marketing tools.
I've been spending more and more time on Twitter. In fact, I just followed you ;) So if you want to follow me, that'd be cool: @mikepedersen. I definitely think Twitter is here to stay, so if you are serious about building a brand online, get on the Twitter bandwagon now. Cheers, Mike
I love Twitter, but never thought to use it for FAQs. Off to update my Social Oomph account with some FAQs. Thanks!
Michael, a shout out would be the inclusion of the persons URL or twitter id and then thanking them for the activity or pointing out something you liked about their content. Head over to Twitter and I'll do a shout out for you.
