Why do you use Twitter?
In my experience, there are 2 main types of Twitter users:
- Fun users
- Business Users
Fun users are people that like to tweet for fun – to their friends, and anyone who follows them. They don’t really mind who follows them, but they like lots of followers. They often have some area of interest that links many of their followers, for example their football team.
Business Users are people that use Twitter, and other Social Media, with a specific goal in mind. That is usually to attract followers to their website, or other place of business. Once their, they hope to engage the reader with the hope to generate a sale, or some sort of business.
…and of course there are many other types, and many twitter users who combine both types.
If you are a Business User, then I hope this post is of interest to you.
With Twitter – you have just 140 characters – maybe 1.5 seconds – to arouse the curiousity of your followers, and get them to find out more about you, maybe visit your website.
But there is a new tool now – Twylah – which helps engage your followers for a little longer.
Twylah is a free application that creates a website with menus, based on your Twitter topics.
It analyses the words that you use, and groups together the common topics.
You can also manage these topics, so if there is a topic that you don’t want to include, you can exclude it. If there are topics that you always want to include aty the top of your Twulah page, even when you haven’t been Tweeting about it, you can do that too.
So how does this help?
Well: On one page you can give your followers a visual impression of what you’re about, without having to spend anymore time on it. Twylah does all of it for you!
… and it is always up to date with your latest thoughts!
Have a look at my Twylah page here, and then set yours up! Really – it takes 2 minutes.
Spend a little time working ON your business, not just IN your business.
Bye for Now
