Twitter for Live Conversations
What on Earth is a tweet?
What if anything does tweeting have to do with what I sell?
The best answer — Twitter connects your business with people are interested in the same things you are.
Twitter is built upon short messages called tweets. From your computer, phone or tablet, you read these messages and you can reply or share them. You strike up conversations with people you know and people you’d like to know.
You Already Know How to Do This
Call it networking. Call it listening. Just don’t call Twitter dumb or a waste of time. You already know how to use Twitter. It’s old-fashioned meeting people and staying in touch with them. You just do this online in place of what you do in person.
Meet the People Your Business Needs
Twitter will introduce you to people in your community whose opinions are followed by their friends and neighbors. You want to know these influencers.
Using Twitter for business helps you understand what people want and need. You’ll quickly see what competitors are up to, and you’ll quickly hear about things that have gone wrong. Tastes, trends, moods, new ideas, the latest news — these topics all show up on Twitter. You get a real-time read on your customers.
So, let’s get started.
