Thanks to : bnet.com Ryan Holmes, the CEO of Vancouver-based HootSuite, a popular social media dashboard for groups, who offered five tips for tweeting entrepreneurs. * Take off your selling hat. “You should think of Twitter as nine parts fun, interesting, engaging information and one part soft marketing,” says Holmes. “People tune out to self-promotional messaging.” If you establish yourself as a source of news, tips, and useful information on your industry, then your followers will be more receptive when you move (subtly) into promotion mode. * Don’t open the floodgates.

What a great social media tool! Just the other day one of my clients was doing some work on Twitter, following people, and told me she was dying of boredom. I laughed and told her about Tweetadder. It is a lovely little piece of software that you can set up to automatically follow people with similar interests, that may be your market, or people that are following other people in your field. I have used it for two or three clients now, and it builds followers exceptionally fast, and with little work. I have told so many people about it perhaps I should set up an affiliate relationship with Read more [...]
