Three Twitter Tutorials to Get Started with Twitter for Business
How to Use Twitter for Business and Marketing — Social Media Examiner
They say: “Hereâs a checklist of everything your business needs to do to get on (or back on) Twitter and start seeing great results.”
I say: This is a great basic guide to get you started with presenting your brand, building your foundation, following other people (your “peeps” who “tweet”) and talking in a way that gives your audience information they want balanced with promoting your own products and services.
Even if you got started once (or twiceÂ 🙂 )before, this guide is still a good place to start because there have been some changes at Twitter (and more coming) that are worth giving Twitter another chance to build your business.
Twitter’s Guide for Smaller BusinessesÂ — Business.Twitter.com
Â Yep. They’ve published their own and it’s a good one. Clearly for getting started with the basics for promoting your business, finding others to work with and getting tips and information you need to succeed.
The 2013 Twitter Marketing Guide — KISSmetrics.com
This guide to Twitter marketing is a little more detailed than the previous two and includes a short list of Twitter vocabulary and examples of what to post.
Twitter is a great place for small business networking and marketing. If you find it confusing try one or both of the following:
–Create Twitter lists. Twitter allows you to create lists of up to 500 people and view just the tweets from the list.
–Use a third party application like Hootsuite or TweetDeck to follow your Twitter stream, view lists or just a conversation between you and another person. (Hootsuite will also allow you to post and schedule tweets, a great way to make sure your mini-posts are seen by your peeps across time zones and across the week.)
