    140twittertips 140twittertips Presentation Transcript

          • @DavidSpinks If you're not seeing results, it's probably not twitter's fault, it's how you're using it. That's ok. Reevaluate why you're there and apply.
          • @divinewrite Help people.
          • @mooshinindy Be yourself on twitter. People will either love you or hate you for it but at least it's you.
          • @calamity7373 Create a dialogue with your followers, don't just push promotions about your brand in their face.
          • Twitter about how your promoting your business, or how your getting paid, give followers something they can use! @DunnMich
          • Don't just talk about your product, talk about your area of expertise. And the key talk - have a dialog with your customers or potential customers.
          • Be the first to share. Get an RSS feed of topical news for your industry and post a link as soon as breaking news hits the search engines.
          • @UTFCU From reports I've seen, we're the first credit union to use Twitter. We promote rates, products, special events.
          • Have you written a lot? Tweet the titles of all articles you have written, and each URL, so your followers can easily find them. @BeerFoxTM
          • Twitter is a conversation. Take some time to listen to what is going on and respond, don't just talk at people. @virtualewit
          • From @hatmandu: don't just use auto-follow tools to spam legions of people - instead, create individual conversations
          • Use Twitter as way to grow your networks on other social media channels. It can be the hub of your social media wheel, each channel a spoke
          • Marketing Is about promoting what your expertise is & how that is advantageous to someone else. Now get tweeting that!
          • Twitter is not a scripted dialog. It is an open conversation between you, your followers and your potential followers. @followthecolson
          • We all got to learn somehow! Just so much to learn, and so many followers.
          • If someone you know has good news (e.g., been promoted), but is too modest to Tweet about it, you might consider Tweeting about it yourself. @appellatelaw
          • @bradjward Don't get caught up in the numbers game. 100 relevant followers on Twitter is worth more than 1000 followers any day of the week.
          • @makingcjc learn ow to RT (re-tweet) it not only helps you stay active, but let's people know what your interested in.
          • "Retweet" is a powerful tool on Twitter; helps to build your brand, following, trust & seen as an expert in your field. @mayhemstudios
          • Twitter is as good as the people you follow. @lookwebdesign
          • @ sarahebuckner : It drives me crazy when people don't post for a few hours, then post 9 times in a row. If they do that a lot, I unfollow.
          • @KristieKreation Don't just retweet, post links and post quotes!! Make sure you carry on conversations so others know a little about you.
          • @ TimPiazza : When you trend, trying to follow your brand is like riding in the front of a roller coaster. Every moment thrills and scares.
          • @ watsonk2 : Tweet 80% content your readers will find helpful and 20% self promotion. A good mix will get you farther than 100% promotion.
          • @ Arsene333 : Before you click send ask yourself "Would I follow this person solely based on this one tweet?" If yes, clink send.
          • Find the perfect balance between the quantity of your tweet versus the quality.
          • Make sure you're able to talk to the people who follow you. Make sure your on when their own, and free to chat.
          • If business has taught you anything is that you have to pick a niche. Apply that to Twitter.
          • DON'T BE STUCK UP! Talk to the people who took time to mention you, follow you, and/or DM you.
          • @ SandyDfromNJ : Twitter is a great place to clarify your vision, mission & message. Are you being Re-Tweeted?
          • Like in Shakespeare the more interesting characters are rounded, not flat or static. So be well rounded (or appear to be).
          • First- Get followers. Second- Keep followers. Sounds easy right? It's actually not. It takes patience and hard work.
          • @ Arsene333 : Think of Twitter as your own public relations campaign.
          • You are the brand!!! Nothing else. You're selling yourself as a person and showing that you are worthy of being followed.
          • B human. dont B the person who only talks abt their product/service. Interact w/ ppl (RT, DM, etc) on a personal level.
          • Don't be all over the place. Be known as the go to page for a topic, and as a reliable source for information on that topic.
          • @ jennielees : Pay it forward - giving is as good as getting, and social capital is invaluable. It's not all about you any more.
          • @ douglaskarr Find out who is tweeting your links with Backtweets http: //backtweets .com/
          • @Alonis DO NOT PUSH YOUR PRODUCT. There, in 26 characters.
          • @azvibe Don't use twitter if all you're going to do is promote the latest and greatest or ask for help for your business. Be yourself!!
          • @ KevinEikenberry : The 3 Twitter Marketing P's To use twitter effectively, be provocative, provide value, and most of all, be personable
