Do you know how to use twitter for your business? Don’t just throw stuff out there! Let me tell you a story.
I got this tweet randomly …..
RedHorseShoe1: @debworks #welovecountrymusicfans Here’s #freemusic@tommydalton http://t.co/b7Dsb2kYKH Find him on radio at http://t.co/YbSZ8Y5St5 5:14pm, Jun 22
It kinda ticked me off, so I fired this response back a couple of days after I had thought about it …
debworks: @redhorseshoe1 you’ll have better luck just talking to me, & not stuffing promo stuff down my throat w/o saying hello first. #justsayin 10:57am, Jun 24
I didn’t expect to hear back cause it was kinda snarky. Imagine my surprise when I got this ….
RedHorseShoe1: @debworks Well Hello Deborah Just reaching out to good Country Fans like yourself offering some Free Music from our Artist Tommy Dalton3:07pm, Jun 24
So now we were having a conversation! It followed like this …
debworks: @redhorseshoe1 so where are you located? Why Tommy Dalton? 6:01pm, Jun 24

RedHorseShoe1: @debworks It’s the fans opinion that matters. LOVE to know yours, we feel he has a unique sound vocally and musically http://t.co/u0OJERc9J1 10:27am, Jun 25
After chit chatting I got another chance to listen to the music. I clicked on the link because we had started to develop a relationship.
RedHorseShoe1: @debworks Here is a song would you give us your opinion? http://t.co/4Vprv3J1F3 Thank you Todd Red Horseshoe President 10:32am, Jun 25
After listening, here was my response ….
@RedHorseShoe1 I really like this. nice country, nice sentiment and I’m singing it. makes me kinda cry cause I want that man in my life.
@RedHorseShoe1 one more thing, I’d buy this.
Finally, Todd’s respond:
RedHorseShoe1debworks Nice! See I know a #countryfan when I see 1 Thank you=) Where r u Deb? Find Tommy on radio near you at tommydalton.com/#!map/c1hqvu
See how that worked? After a snarky comment on my part, Todd reached out and started a real conversation. We chatted a bit, then he shared a link and asked for my opinion. He made sure I had a couple of links to check out. I was invested at this point. THIS is the way to use Twitter.
