Over the course of several weeks, we accepted your tips via email, Twitter and in comments to the original post. We asked readers to simply answer one of the following 6 questions:
-Getting Started: How would you suggest other small businesses get started on Twitter?
-Smart Marketing: What’s the right way (or wrong way) to promote your business on Twitter?
-Observing Etiquette: What is your #1 Twitter etiquette tip for small business owners?
-Spreading Your Message: What is your best tip for getting re-tweeted?
-Time Management: How do you manage your time on Twitter?
-Advanced Strategies: What is your best kept secret (something not widely known) for using Twitter in business?
There are quite a few useful tips included in the list. The list is also a great introduction to the medium for those who are just getting started with Social Media (Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, etc.).
Promotion through Social Media is just one part of developing your overall Marketing Strategy. For a good overview of the Marketing process (including a definition of the difference between Sales and Marketing functions) you can check out Our Page on Marketing and Sales.
We don’t just blog about it – we are also active on Twitter and Facebook. To follow our Social Media feeds just use the links on This Page.
