What's all this fuss about Twitter?
Do you Twitter?
Do you think that it's a waste of time?
Isn't Facebook enough?
Well, let's look at the facts….
Twitter is huge! It has been growing since March 2006 and continues to grow at an astounding rate. As a business owner you need to be on Twitter, it has become an important place to be!
There are a billion tweets going out a week so it is fast becoming the number one source for businesses to advertise and interact with their customers. If your competition are on there you need to be too!
People are sending over 140 million tweets a day from their computers and mobile phones. There are 460,000 new accounts created on Twitter daily, just think of the potential, think of the market reach you could have!
42% of users rely on Twitter to learn about new products or services available on the market, and 41% of them share their opinion about the products or services they use.
Large companies have made millions in sales by using Twitter alone!
Apart from advertising on Twitter you can give your customers tips showing them that you are an expert in your field and that you care for their concerns and issues. Creating a bond that, in turn, instills loyalty amongst your followers.
I know that for some business owners finding the time to master Twitter is a luxury that you just don't have, but don't let that excuse leave you behind. Outsource!
Hire a Social Media Manager or a Virtual Assistant to schedule your tweets for you. These people already know what they are doing on Twitter and they would love to help you.
They give your the freedom you need but the daily contact you require!
If you haven't already set up your Twitter account I suggest you join the other 460,00o people and create one today. And remember it's called Social Media, so go and be social and have fun!
As a business owner you need to ask yourself "Can I afford not to be on Twitter?"
