Twitter Also in January a previous client told me to start using Twitter. Again my reaction was “why?” She told me that it was possible to send one message to the total number of people who were following me all at the same time. So I went off and started adding to my Twitter followers.
You should post a new Tweet at least once a day, but not more than three times. Look for people who have less than 300 people they’re following so that when you do post a Tweet, it will have a better chance of being seen than those who have 2,000+ they are following.
No one told me you have to have more people following you than you’re following to go beyond 2,000 and I had to use a virtual assistant to help break the barrier. I was listening to a teleseminar, which if you’re not in the habit of doing, is a great way to stay informed about how to do tasks you’re not familiar with or need to find learn about.
You can use SocialOomph.com to create all your Tweets for the week and post them at timed intervals. TweetDeck shows who has sent you a personal Tweet so you can keep up with the messages. I use a website called searchtwitter.com to find people who have similar interests.
Hootsuite.com is a great website to use to create one post and have it show up on each of your social media sites. It is a great time saver.
