Should you “tweet” on Twitter?
Last week I joined Twitter – I’m not sure why, but many of the experts say it’s a fine way to get your name and what you do in front of potential clients.
That said, if you’re going to “tweet” then you should have a method to your madness. Rather than use it to say “just watched a good TV show” or “spending the afternoon putting pictures in my albums,” your tweets should somehow refer back to what you do. In other words, they need to be a tool for marketing and self-promotion, if a subtle tool.
Instead, you might say “Just visited with a new graphic design client – can’t wait to get started on this project!” Or maybe, “Just listed a house I’ve been drooling over for the last 3 years. Having a celebration over being the chosen agent.” Then follow that up later with “Just posted my fabulous new listing at (address)” Or how about “Just posted a new article on staging at (address)”
The idea is that the majority of your posts should remind readers of what you do, why you do it, why you love it, how it helps people, etc.
I seriously can’t believe that anyone wants to know that you just cleaned the cat box. Can you?
