So you want your business on Twitter?

You've heard that Twitter is the hot new, thing on the Internet. Everyone is talking about it. You've heard it's the place to advertise your business, but you don't know where to begin.

You are most likely busy running your business and don't have spare time to be on Twitter anyway. That's where I come in. I can tweet for you! I have been on Twitter for just over one year. In that time I have gained over 19,000 followers. I have become friends with several of the most influential people on Twitter. I've done this by sharing. Sharing little things about myself. Also, sharing helpful info that others would like to pass on to others.

That's all well and good. But what does that have to do with you and your business? My main goal is to drive traffic to your website/business. We can start a Twitter account for you. Then I can 'tweet' your info out. Your website, your phone numbers, special sales, etc. (This can be anything you want and I can change at anytime.) But that alone is not enough.

On Twitter, you are only as good as your last or next tweet. What does that mean? Consistency. Twitter is all about being social. Interacting with others and sharing info and ideas and yourself. We need to give people a reason to follow and 'retweet' from your business twitter account. (I have found that the retweet is the best way to get new followers and get your message out on Twitter.)

What I have come up with is more "tweets" to get people to follow you on Twitter. In addition to your business info, I will tweet a steady stream of helpful info tailored to your customers. Have a travel agency? I can tweet helpful travel tips. How about a hardware store? We can tweet helpful home repair tips! The possibilities are endless! These subjects are very flexible and again can be changed at any time. On a daily basis, I will search Twitter as well as other sites like Google to find new twitter content for you.

Also we can come up with special hashtags (a way to index your tweets) so your business tweets can be found quickly. (Even by people who are not following you!)

While I cannot tweet 24/7 for you, I will be able to consistently tweet everyday for several hours. I will tweet your business info, look for new content, interact with others, follow people back and forward their questions and comments to you. Using this method I was able to help one customer gain over 1,900 followers in just over five months!

You know how your business works. I know Twitter. Let me put my social media skills to work for you. Join the conversation!
