Dear Expert,

I’ve heard a lot of social media people talking about how Twitter can help small businesses.  I’ve also heard others talk about stagnate accounts, and problems with Twitter as a tool.   Is Twitter really a good idea?  Can you tell me what types of tweets are most effective 스모 토리?

Dear Tweeting in Uncertainty,

Yes, Twitter can be great for helping a small business grow, and hopefully, after reading this answer, you’ll be able to create a thriving account 스팀 게임.

The one thing you should understand right off the bat is that there isn’t really ONE type of tweet that works better than others.  In fact, except in very, very, very rare examples  (e.g Cowone Jet Audio. @ShitMyDadSays), sending out only one type of tweet is a good way to turn off potential followers.  Like a well-cooked meal, your tweets should be a mix of multiple flavors and styles that complement each other wincc.

Whether you are a B2B, or a B2C, start by sending out a mix of industry-related tweets (events, news, etc), along with self-promotional, and conversational.  If your Twitter page is under your name, don’t be afraid to send out some personal tweets too.  Then watch and see what sparks your followers’ interest, play with the balance of tweets a bit, and figure out what works best for you.  Just remember, the whole goal is to generate conversation, and from conversation, prospects, and from prospects, new sales 모피와 친구들 다운로드.

Dear Expert,

Recently I started up a blog that seems to be gaining some traction.  In order to encourage more growth, I set up a few social media profiles on different sites.  My question is this – how do I manage all this content 롤 멀티의신 다운로드?

Dear Drowning in Words,

A post here, an update there, and before you know it, the day is over and your computer desktop is littered with files.  The bad news is that with the onset of real-time updates, the need for constant fresh content may start to become a major priority (and headache!) for businesses and professionals alike.  The good news is that there are some simple strategies and tools out there to make all of this a little bit easier Download goosebumps subtitles.

First of all, try repurposing your content.  Once you write a blog post, tweet about it with a link, or post a portion of it on your Facebook page.  Secondly, come up with a content strategy.  Plan out ahead of time, as much as you can, some of your tweets, blog posts and updates, then schedule whatever possible with a tool like Hootsuite, or ping.fm.  Third, show up for the conversations that take place around your content 스프링 첨부파일!
