Twitter Social Networking - Marketing Your Business

Increase Your Business Networking With Twitter
Why Would A Home Inventory Service Use Twitter?

What Are Some Of The Benefits Of Using Twitter For Small Business?

Aussie Home Inventories has been using Twitter, [said to be the hottest social networking website], for over two months now. We became aware of Twitter earlier in the year, after a discussion with Cindy Hartman, of Hartmans Inventory. Cindy had taken the skill of Twittering to a new high level, increasing her business clients and business networking relationships.

When searching for systems to increase business sales, business networking and traffic to websites. Often suggested, is the idea of signing up to social networks.

After an email from Cindy recommending we join Twitter, we looked at some of the said benefits and signed up. A steep learning curve on what this 'micro-blogging' social network is all about, taught us how to increase networking and business awareness. Being of the business type that comes under the 'new concept' label, for many homes and small business, it is important to keep our business awareness maximised at all times.

An extensive search was taken into the many additional Twitter applications. Third party applications [tweet schedulers, tweet directories, email alerts, search engines, auto twitter apps.] are everywhere, making Twitter very easy to use. A system where you can get a message of 140 characters, out there to a global audience fast.

On joining Twitter, we expected there to be a large Home Inventory Service presence, due to Twitter being popular in America, which is the home of this business type. There was not, or it was hard to find. It even took time to find Cindy with her 'white hot' Twitter channel @CindyHartman.

This does not mean there are other Home Inventory Services on Twitter, it may simply means that the selected search terms used by these businesses, or us in our quest, makes them hard to find.

When choosing a name on Twitter, it seems to make sense if the type of business type, can be reflected in the name. This is going to make it easy, to be found. Hence we are called @HomeInventory. It pays to get in there early, to obtain your chosen name. @HomeInventory also gets noticed by Real Estate users. They use the term Home Inventory commonly. Of course all those homes need a home inventory, which is great news for our industry!

As we have a large Google footprint, Twitter is seen as a complimentary tool to grow this global footprint. We primarily use Twitter to release 'inventory taking' activity awareness, inventory information, business news, new product information, blog post and web page releases.

Automate Your Twitter Account 100%

Whether Twitter increases revenue, what we can say it that it can increase traffic, which itself can increase revenue.

What Twitter can do, is easily increase social / business networking, a winner for all businesses. We network successfully with our Twitter followers, direct message or by email. We choose not to make our Twitter streams into an 'open chat' stream and have opted for the business approach. We are there for business networking primarily, with friends gained being a bonus.

Our Twitter following started on it's own. Making sure you are easy to find is crucial. Once the Twitter following ball is rolling, it seems to generate a consistent flow of new followers. We add new updates frequently, both information and product. Followers therefore see this as an important Twitter feed to follow. There is a concept on Twitter, that is most 'twitter folk' will follow each other, as a matter of etiquette.

If we come across a 'system' that appears to increase Twitter followers, we will join it. We know of two systems that have increased our Twitter followers. These systems are crucial when you are new to Twitter as you need to increase your followers at once.
  • System#1 - This is a FREE system and increased our Twitter following and still is. Try this Twitter Traffic Booster and let us know how it increases your Twitter followers.
  • System#2 - This system called The Twitter Traffic Machine does costs money, but at the same time does everything it says it does. It teaches you how to fully automate a Twitter account. Once you have learned the system it then only takes 30minutes or so, to apply the same set of rules to a new account. The bonus of this system is, that it does not take more than a few days, to make money. Yes you make money as well! It's well worth the dollars.
We manage the following Twitter accounts.

Your Tweet may be the one Tweet that strikes a nerve, and converts them to a client.
