Notes from our Twitter Webinar

Posted on February 19, 2009. Filed under: Marketing, Twitter |

I have just finished listening to our Webinar on Twiter and just got some notes for you.

Firstly, Twitter is a microblogging site in which you can add a message with up to 140 characters. I don’t use twitter to interact with people because you have to change screens to see your replies, direct messages etc. I use the twitter site to see how many followers I have and to see who they are.

I use Tweetdeck to chat or the in the jargon tweet with people since all tweets, replies, and direct messages are on the one screen.

What do you tweet about?

With your tweets it’s all about building relationships and sharing useful things with people.
For instance if you just created a new post in your blog you should share the link to it.

If you just created a new video in You tube share the link to it.

If you have a Webinar or teleseminar coming up let people know about it.

Share useful tools and resources.

Start a conversation with someone who shares similar interests to you and get to know them.

What not to Tweet about?

Don’t tell everyone about why they should join your fantastic super dopper 2×15 matrix with spillover. People don’t want to know, they want to know how they can build their existing businesses.

Tweetlater

When people start following you can send them an automatic message with a link to your facebook account, you tube account, a free resource etc. I use Tweetlater for this message. It’s quite easy to do.

Twollo

Twollo is a tool which allows you to automatically follow people in Twitter based on the the keywords you enter. Some of these people with follow you back. These followers will be super targeted because they are based on keywords and interests that you both have.

Tr.im

Since there is a limitation of only 140 chararacters in Twitter you need to shorten URL’s as much as possible. One such tool is Tr.im which allows you to reduce the size of of your links and to follow where traffic is coming from to these links, to show you what is working and to do more of the same.

Ping.fm

Given you have accounts on Myspace, Facebook, Twitter etc you can manage all of your updates to these sites from the one site. This site is called Ping.fm. This is a cool time saver.

OK, thats probably enough for now.

You will want to add this Twitter tool bar to your Firefox browser. The toolbar is called MyTwitterToolbar which will give you information about all the tools I’ve mentioned above and information about future Twitter apps for you to use.

Cheers for now

Phil

Good post. Very useful information. I’d like to see more blogs that share good info like this without including a blatant sales pitch. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for your thoughts MrIdea glad you liked it.
However, I fail to see how this is a sales pitch.

Thank you for clearing that up for me. I am new to Twitter and just jumped in to it. I don’t have Firefox, can I still use the toolbar?

Jannette you can use http://twittinsecretstwittertips.greattoolbars.com/ie if you are using Internet Explorer rather than Firefox.
I would encourage you to use Firefox over Internet Explorer because Firefox is much more stable.
