Twitter recently put out this guide on how to use the micro-blogging social media service for small business. Whether you’re new to Twitter or an old pro, you’ll likely find some helpful hints.
Naturally, there’s a little bit of stuff about using Twitter’s paid services – hey, they’ve gotta pay those server bills and keep the Fail Whale from surfacing somehow, right? But it’s mostly a content-rich tutorial that should help you squeeze out more social media mileage per tweet.
To get the guide, you have to let Twitter harvest you for data – there’s a fairly probing personal information form to complete before you can download. Yes, most of us enjoy those forms about as much as a trip to the proctologist. But the way I look at it, this is info I’d provide publicly anyway as a business proprietor. You can also find a wealth of information on Twitter for business without divulging any info at all — just peck around on the Twitter for Business sub-site.
So check it out, and if you’re on Twitter, hit me up and add me at @aparkerddm !
