Using Twitter to Your Advantage: Part 1

Twitter can be a powerful tool to drive visitors to your website. It’s a way to get short (140 character) messages out there to hundreds, if not thousands, of people. Here are some other uses of Twitter:

  • Researching in real-time about a current event, trend or business.
  • Promoting news for your business or organization.
  • Developing relationships with reporters or other members of the media.
  • Developing relationships with other people and businesses in your industry.
  • Crowd sourcing a question or problem you may have.
  • Connecting with your target market on a personal level.

However you decide to utilize Twitter (ideally it would be a combination of all of the above), make sure to tweet a mixture of personal and professional tweets. On any given day, say something about your industry and something fun you found around the web.
