The Tweet that Pays: Small Business and the Use of Twitter
Thursday, June 24, 2010
Roam in Alpharetta
“I don’t get Twitter. Why do I care if you’re walking your dog?!”
So goes a common complaint about Twitter. While it’s true that celebrities are using Twitter
to talk about ordinary life events, it’s also true that small businesses are using Twitter to
expand their “know-like-trust” quotient with prospects and customers – and working hard to
monetize their efforts.
As frequent Twitters, Dawn Gartin and Kelly Vandever have been asked a questions about
Twitter by business owners and have put together this seminar to address these concerns…
• Why would I want to use Twitter?
• Who is making money on Twitter?
• How do I get started on Twitter?
• How much time per day should I spend on Twitter?
• How frequently should I tweet to make it worth while?
• How can I drive people to my website through Twitter?
• What’s is a hashtag and how do they work?
• What is proper Twitter etiquette?
In this session, you’ll learn the basics of Twitter and how small businesses are using Twitter to
talk and listen to those important to their business…and sometimes making money in the
process. Twitter is no secret bullet. But you can’t afford to ignore it either. Leave
empowered with knowledge and tools for your business’ Twitter strategy.
9:15 AM – 10:30 PM
11 AM – 12:15 PM
