Twitter is a great tool to connect with friends and facilitate business and is soon to be a multi billion dollar public company. However if used indiscriminately it can be a waste of time and possibly hurt your reputation.
Here is how twitter helps me with my business
- Asking questions
- Getting specific help with complex projects
- Connecting with people I otherwise wouldn’t
- Sending out coupon codes, deals, specials
- Meeting new industry specialists
- Reputation management – seeing real time searches about my company/industry
