Like I promised, today I will be going through what are the best tweeting techniques to use for your business and discuss what is retweeting and why it’s important.
Tweeting – Get Social!
There is an art to using Twitter to its full capabilities. The most important thing to remember is to be social and really interact with people in a new way.
The quickest way to ruin your Twitter credibility – whether you are a new user or a seasoned vet – is to use Twitter as a platform to hype your sales pitch and hawk your products. Twitter is about networking – not about direct sales. It’s Twitter, not Tupperware. Your goal isn’t to see what the tally is at the end of the day.
Instead, your goal is about how many people come to the convention – your website. Well, if you’ve ever dealt with an over-zealous party planner, you know you love to hear about what they do, but not every time you hear from them and certainly not several times a day.
Sitting at your work desk, facing the monitor all day long, does that sound familiar to you? A recent study from Sax Institute’s 45 and Up Study found that adults who sat for long hours a day had a 40% increased risk of dying in the next three years than those who sat less. Prolonged sitting causes your metabolism to slow down because the major muscles in your body aren’t moving. In a long run, your body will be in a shutdown state and will have less desirable level of glycemic index of foods which can cause higher risk of health diseases.
Remaining seated for a longer time also can also causes body aches. One of the most common aches is backache. According to orthopedic and spine surgeon Dr Siow Yew Siong from Malaysia, office workers suffer mostly sprained and strained low backs as well as early degeneration of the spine due to the sedentary nature of office work. Furthermore, having this disease can reduce productivity.
Thanks to the study done by many researches, companies are beginning to realize and adapt to a healthier working environment, standing working. Many of those started standing working found that they are able to focused for a longer stretches, and are far less likely to succumb to distraction. This in term brings more productivity of work to the table.
Standing working also causes the movement in the muscles of our body. Standing up engages your back muscles and improves your posture. Many that had made the switch have reported that the change cured their back pain.
Also, good news for those that are looking to lose weight, studies have also shown that standing working burn more calories compare to the traditional practice. Now you don’t have to worry about not having time to step into the gym anymore because your working environment have gave you a natural way of exercise your body.
Even though standing working is better compare to sitting working, excessive standing can also strained your muscle. So it is essential to be in a balance state by moving yourself around once in a while during work.
Let’s Setup a Twitter Account For Your Business…For Real!
In my previous post, Twitter for Businesses – An Intro, we discussed what is Twitter in general and how it can help your business.
This week, I’d like to continue on the same path, and in this article, you will learn the Exact Steps (together with screenshots) on how to open a Twitter account and configure it for your business.
TIP: The easiest way to get a real understanding of the power of Twitter is to actually create an account and get started. Since, this only takes a few minutes to do, I would advice if you haven’t already created an account, to do it now, while looking at the steps and the screenshots below.
I think the most important question posed by business owners these days is, “is there continued sustainability in my business?”
It doesn’t matter what business you’re in, or how much revenue your business generates today. The question is, does your business rely upon new sales every other day? And if yes, how can you ensure there is continued growth?
What if the sales numbers start to decrease not because of the quality of your product or service but maybe due to the unstable political or economical climate? Or, what if customers simply don’t want to buy and start cutting down on spending?
Thank goodness, with the economy rebounding, corporations in almost every sector are refocusing their energies on rejuvenating revenue growth that has been stalled over the past three to four years. In the quest for new revenue streams, one of the most profitable opportunities we see is —after-sales services—, which is a key lever for new strategic growth.
” According to a recent McKinsey & Co. study, 62 percent of new hardware product orders in the U.S., and 64 percent worldwide, include maintenance and support contracts.”
Many business owners I’ve spoken to recently have expressed interest in knowing more about Twitter and so I thought, for a change, I’ll prepare a series of posts on Twitter detailing exactly what is Twitter and how it works and how you can use it in your business to drive more traffic and sales.
Do you remember those times when customers called up and complained that their having problems with the software because it is not working as expected or too slow. And whether you like it or not, the list will never end. That is why Quality Control (also known as Quality Assurance) is an essential process for most of the software companies.
