Twitter is a social media application found at www.twitter.com Here’s a few tips to follow and a brief listing of some things I’ve learned on one day.
#followfriday this is where you recommend people to follow and put #followfriday at the end of the twit — PLEASE tell us why we should follow those people!
Wrote a new blog post? What is it about? Don’t just tell me you wrote something. Tell me why I want to read it.
Talk to people. Don’t blast out your marketing info on every tweet. People hate that. Let us get to know you.
Do NOT have a DM sent automatically when someone follows you. DM is for direct messages you really don’t want anyone else but the reader to see. Not for the “Hi, thanks for following – here’s my website” information.
Remember, a lot of people are reading what you write. Some might even be future employers.
What I Learned on Twitter on Sunday
What is really, really good is coarsely cracked pepper (very coarse, like pepper corns wrapped in a towel and bang them with a pan) mixed with honey and poured over Feta cheese. Yummy. Try it. My friend LynnO suggested this treat.
Bob Burg has a new book called The Go Giver
. Here are the Five Laws of Stratospheric Success (which are restated at the back of the book):
1) The Law of Value: Your true worth is determined by how much more you give in value than you take in payment.
2) The Law of Compensation: Your income is determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them.
3) The Law of Influence: Your influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people’s interests first.
4) The Law of Authenticity: The most valuable gift you have to offer is yourself.
5) The Law of Receptivity: The key to effective giving is to stay open to receiving.
