How To Get The Best from Twitter

What if you are not in business and you just want to get https://memeburn.com/2011/03/china-social-networks-expat-foreigners-cool-girls-and-hipsters/ to know people? After all that is why you are using social media in the first place right? In order for you to get the most and give the most out of Twitter, you must think in terms of value. Most people could care less that you are having a cup of coffee, but if you mention you are having a cup of coffee and post a http://www.objectif-chine.com/revue-de-presse-du-luxe-en-chine_-27-octobre-au-2-novembre-2014/ link to your favorite coffee recipe, now you are adding value to what you are saying. People are curious creatures and they are often curious about the goings on with you.

That doesn’t mean they want to hear about the mundane. Twitter is microblogging. That means you only have a limited amount of characters on your key pad that you can use to post. In a regular blog, you can post paragraph after paragraph and it is good to use that for detailed information about what you are sharing with your readers. microblogging puts little snipits along with links and it allows your readers to decide a bit easier if they want to go and read all you have to say.

One thing to understand straight away is that traditional marketing doesn’t work on Twitter. If you start “tweeting” links to your latest press releases, overtly pushing your products or generally offering nothing of value then you’re trying to force feed a community something it doesn’t want. 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. You are probably saying (rightly so) that different people have different perceptions of a product or service.

.. so how is that information going to help me? Well, that gives you a nice place to find out about the different points on the loyalty ladder. Not all good strategies rely on super tactics, a huge budget and star power. The basis of a good strategy is to win your audience without having to rely on a tactical brilliance team with bloated salaries that will regurgitate what every social media guru tells them to. Facebook has developed downloadable toolbars for use in Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers.

The toolbar automatically logs you in to your Facebook account without you having to visit the web site. From the toolbar in your browser you can see all of your notifications of friend requests, messages, invites, pokes, etc. You can also use the search field to look up friends and contacts on Facebook. The Share button lets you choose to share the page you’re on by posting it on your profile or sending the link to friends.

The important thing to remember is that when doing a video, make sure you have a tripod to avoid the “shaky hand” effect. Also, make sure the lighting is good, preferably natural light. Be yourself and speak to the camera like you’re speaking with a patient. It will take you a few times to get comfortable, but when you do, you’ll be able to deliver value that will sit online 24/7 and generate traffic.
