The Best Twitter Tools for Business

Posted By on Mar 21, 2010 |


Twitter has a reputation for being a secret bullet and a irritating mystery.  Which is it?  First,  you need to understand the key principles of using Twitter effectively:

1) Listen more than you talk.

2) Engage and ask questions with potential clients, current clients, vendors, competitors.  Treat it like you’re at a cocktail party and with tons of interesting people.

3) Be helpful.

4) Develop relationships.

You don’t need to push your business.  Just be your business – ask on topic, relevant, brand-related questions to people who are interested.
