  • Before we get into the details of Twitter, however, let’s briefly look at why your business should be considering using social media in the first place.
  • Before we get into the details of Facebook, however, let’s briefly look at why your business should be considering using social media in the first place.
  • For what it’s worth, if you’re still uncertain just why you should care about Twitter, you are not alone. In fact, this phenomenon is so common that someone has prescribed the “Five Stages of Grief” to be quite similar to a person’s acceptance of Twitter. I went through each of these stages myself and, yes, ultimately there was a day when I did a forehead slap and said to myself, “Oh, now I get it!” We hope that you’ll see the wisdom of Twitter by the end of this course.
  • If you gain a following, Twitter can drive traffic to any web page you like, which makes it an excellent tool for highlighting new content on your blog, a special promotion described on your website, a form or survey you’d like a reader to fill out, etc.
  • You’ll see the “Dashburst” Tweet in this slide contains a shortened URL at the end. “Bitly.com” is a website where you can shorten any URL, by cutting and pasting it into Bitly. Bitly then returns a shortened version that will last as long as that webpage exists.
  • …. Of course, you can also consult my website and Facebook business pages: HalvorsonNewMedia.com and http://facebook.com/halvorsonNewMedia I provide all kinds of consulting help to businesses struggling with social media, whether it’s Faceobook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn or blogging. I can create content or teach you how to do so. I can manage the sites for you, if you just don’t have the time or expertise. For now, I hope this webinar has given you a solid foundation on which to build your beginning Facebook presence for business. Thank you and please don’t hesitate to drop me a line using the email address shown above.
