Do You Have Time for Twitter?
The average internet user typically may spend anywhere from 2 to 4 hours on the internet browsing or checking their email daily. Especially if you own your own small business whereas having email is an essential need for you business. Quite often business owners need to have email or send messages on the go.
Twitter is just like a text messaging system. It allows you to stay in touch with your friends and family. You can share short updates quickly. However, you have to make sure that you your messages are not over 130 characters. Otherwise, your message does not get posted on Twitter.
If you want to start an online business. You must jump on the bandwagon and get to tweeting. I have talked to hundreds of small business owners who do not have social media profiles. Quite often, I hear them say that either they don’t know how to set one up or they do not have time to manage it.
I can understand that the social media frenzy is time consuming and it does require lots of patience. Currently, we have about five website right now that I manage and the top three website that have a TWITTER social network profiles are:
1. Miraje Studios – A blogging site whereas I teach and provide tips to beginners on how to grow their online business! You will lots of helpful resources to use! ( Find ME on Twitter )
I have to say that Twitter is a good resource to use, in order to get your message out quickly to your followers. If you want to see your business grow, then you must make time to cultivate and become socially active in the Twitter online community.
In order to grow your online business, you must be consistent and engage your audience and offer feedback when needed. Show your followers that you care. As you interactive with your audience, you will find your audience starting to grow. Whether y you have a business Twitter profile or a personal one. The reason I like Twitter you can do both or just do one or the other.
How much time you set aside depends on you? I normally take time out and Tweet from about 5 to 30 minutes, depending on the ‘WHAT’s HAPPENING NOW’ conversation. You don’t have to follow my method, but at least get in there and be sociable. Let other know you exist!
