With so much in the media about Twitter, people may wonder if Twitter is just a “fad”. I must admit – the thought has crossed my mind a few times too. However, with all the applications out there that integrate into twitter and all the ways of sharing content within twitter – I don’t see it going away anytime soon.
HubSpot released their findings on their white papers called “State of the Twittersphere”. I encourage the read when you can. To sum things up – Twitter’s growth has been slower, but people are beginning to engage more. In other words, the novice is no longer a novice. People are starting to “get it”.
As a blog owner – twitter is a great way to share your content and share content of others.
Is twitter for me and can I make money on it?
That’s the question I get all the time. The short answer is – twitter isn’t for everyone, but everyone should be on twitter.
If you are a news source, providing information such as schedules, tours, time, breaking news, etc. Twitter is for you on a level of just getting information out.
If you are selling, blogging, doing anything e-commerce – Twitter is for you. If you are selling B2B or B2C – this is where you can get your cold leads turned into “warm” leads. I’ve done it in my own business as Director of Business Development. I’ve made friends and connections in a city that I knew no one in. I haven’t been there a year and I’ve been able to contact some pretty impressive accounts; all through Twitter.
