Are you utilizing the power of Twitter for business?
If you classify yourself as a Twitter business user and are not interconnected with your LinkedIn account you are ignoring a huge revenue stream and quality relationship building profit center. If you value your time and effort spent on Twitter; then invest in yourself and get your LinkedIn account setup properly and connected to twitter.
This is about the equivalent of saying you are in business without even having an internet website.
The “Twitterland” population is increasing everyday; as is the explosion of LinkedIn.
While Twitter is a valuable source for information; also, a popular digital community meeting and marketplace to connect with others; most Twitter members are under-utilizing the power of Twitter as a tool for business. The capacity and power to deliver results driven by leveraging Twitter for your business is realized once implemented into all of your social network portals and key to your larger strategic plan.
The average twitter member uses Twitter to; tweet messages, follow other twitter users, capture the attention of others and gain twitter followers.
As you dive deeper into Twitter soon you will find your screen is a scrolling with jokes, coupons, last minute deals, website links, thoughts for the day, quotes, “what I’m doing right now”, loads of @mentions, #HashTags, on and on…it just never seems to end…oh, and yes; there is spam too.
The team at Twitter is always hard at work creating new features and enhancing the user interface; competing in the climb to the top of social networking fame sake. Recently being compared to Facebook; Twitter has succeeded in attracting larger market share.
Questions remain though.
Are Twitter business users properly taking advantage of the growing Twitter population?
Are small business tweets effective and utilizing the public presence power it provides to achieve results?
The most common oversight among proclaimed Twitter business users is their lack of connection between LinkedIn and all of LinkedIn’s features; to drive action, attract attention and deliver results. Creating a LinkedIn account and linking it to your Twitter account is a strategic move for business. LinkedIn allows you to build your Twitter “followers”, create a focused following and allow your tweets to reach larger targeted audiences.
LinkedIn is one of the most popular professional business member based social networks on the internet. Your Twitter account feed can appear right on your LinkedIn company page.
What, you do not have a LinkedIn company page?
This is exactly what we are talking about…too busy tweeting as opposed to laying a proper foundation for your online business; then interconnect your accounts for far greater reach in the same effort with a single tweet. LinkedIn provides an easy tool for others to follow your business, both on LinkedIn and on Twitter; with just one click. Your business tweets are now in front of other business professionals, business owners, CEOs, Startups and other potential target audiences for your company.
LinkedIn recently launched advanced features to their polls & surveys which allow you to ask questions, engage users, acquire customer feedback, collect market data and more. Tweeting your poll/survey is a great way to get your poll in front of Twitter users.
Get your LinkedIn account up and running and start leveraging the business community it allows you to interact with.
The LinkedIn learning curve is not that great. It may seem a bit foreign at first but soon you will be well on your way in reaping the rewards of getting your Twitter account integrated with your LinkedIn account.
Tweet wisely and encourage your Twitter followers to also create a free LinkedIn account profile.
Use your tweets to add a url link to your new LinkedIn account profile; in 140 characters or less have your followers taking action! LinkedIn is an enormous professional business social network environment and growing exponentially.
Integrate your Twitter & LinkedIn accounts for stronger business utilization, broader market reach and audience targeting.
