wearesocial.sg – http://wearesocial.sg/blog/2012/01/social-asia-tuesday-tuneup-11/. Admittedly, I didn’t jump on the Twitter bandwagon immediately. I heard about it over a year ago and I definitely underestimated the importance of how powerful this site really is. Beginner bloggers may have started out on one of the many free blog-hosting websites (such as Blogger, WordPress and similar), lovingly crafted their post and sat back, only to realize that no-one has read it. Some give up. Others investigate, only to discover that for their blog to reach a readership they will have to divert time away from writing and put it into search engine optimization, link-building, directory listings and other methods of self-promotion.
Get your own Twitter account. You need to sign up with Twitter before you can interact with other members. Don’t worry as it’s relatively easy. It’s basically the same when you’re making an email account. I suggest that you use the name of your business for your Twitter name. Then, make use of a great picture, perhaps a cup of coffee and your best-selling sandwich or group of people enjoying the food that you serve.
It all depends on what you are trying to accomplish-and what kind of constituency you have. Do you want to microblog just to give your friends an insight into your daily routine-a Gmail, Facebook, or Twitter update is sufficient. Or, are you trying to gain traction in a new business? Expose your microblogging thoughts on LinkedIn, a professional resume-like networking site. Or you can Twitter to businesses or business owners. It’s http://www.buybuychina.com/poke-building-a-sex-toy-empire-on-chinas-weibo/ not easy to decide. Here are the cool things about it: So you get all the power of http://brandchannel.com/home/post/feed/2012/06/08/Chinese-Consumers-Fear-Buying-060812.aspx?format=ATOM twitter but all your posts, replies, direct messages are place into their own group which makes things easier to manage.
You can add people into new groups. You can create your own search groups. Tweetdeck: TweetDeck is an Adobe AIR desktop Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google Buzz and MySpace application. Like other Twitter applications it interfaces with the Twitter API to allow users to send and receive tweets and view profiles from one application. You can also make lists and view DM’S @ responses, favorite tweeter lists or groups all from one application.
If you connect with your fellow “Twitterers” with meaningful updates, then you’re tapping into a very valuable opportunity. The chance to spread your ideas and to interact with influential people who might share your message with others.
