I joined Twitter in April 2009, not really knowing how it would benefit my business. Who was I meant to follow, what was I meant to talk about?
So two years later and I am completely hooked!
How has it helped me and my business?
Well I have gained new business from it (which was my goal)
I have made some lovely cyber friends from it, some of which I have since met others I haven't had chance to yet.
I have gained press coverage from it.
In March a networking evening was set up with local tweeters. It was a huge success and about 80 people turned up. We have just had our second event which was a quiz night. It was a great night and our team came third - YAY!
And now this week I got a tweet from one of my cyber friends saying she had something she didn't need and would I like it. It is just so lovely when people you haven't even met before think of you for these things.
I think that Twitter is a great free marketing tool and also a great way to make new friends.
