What to Tweet?

Posted on January 25, 2011


Twitter helps with business development, if your prospects are online (mine are). Read the following to get my full Twitter Rules

1) Use Twitter to Ask questions. Twitter is GREAT for getting opinions.

2) Follow interesting people. If you find someone who tweets interesting things, see who she follows, and follow her.

3) Tweet about other people’s stuff. Again, this doesn’t directly impact your business, but makes us feel like you’re not “that guy” always promoting himself.

4) When you DO talk about your stuff, make it useful. Give advice, blog posts, pictures, etc.

5) Make it fun! Create inventive contests, give away great prizes. Click here for examples.

6) Share the human side of your company. Point us to pictures and other human things from your company.

7) Commenting on others’ tweets, and retweeting what others have posted is a great way to build community.
