    Another advantage that I have found recently is that when I attend some Kansas City networking events like Chamber and networking meetings, people already are familiar with me since I have targeted local business owners to follow.

    I work with vacation rental owners to help them maximise their occupancy in properties with a variety of marketing strategies. Setting up a Twitter account and using it professionally and wisely is one of the first tasks I set them. I often get resistance to this since Twitter can be seen as frivolous and time-wasting, but once owners start to use the tool for branding purposes, they quickly see the benefits. They can capture interest in their location and then guide followers to their product (the accommodation). It does take time to ‘get it’ but those that do are reaping the benefits.

    These are all great reasons to use Twitter, especially to build a community around brands.

    Jeff Some great ideas…what do you think is the best avenue to find out what people think of you, your company or brand? Sometimes it is not easy to tell if you are being a jerk overpromoting. Or if it’s not enough. Thanks

    I’ve just done a radio interview that’s being broadcast twice a day for a week to my whole county (timed to be broadcast in the lead up to my Open Studio). It took one DM on Twitter to set it up. Ideal coverage with minimal effort thanks to Twitter.

    I try to utilise as many platforms as I can. But I do know this for a fact that if you want real results about something ie. you complain about a particular service do it on twitter. I complained online about a product – they ignored me. I tweeted about it on twitter and I had a result within 4 hours of the tweet.

    Facebook has seriously lost the plot. If you email abuse@facebook.com you hardly get any feedback from humans. Instead they send you to some forum for you to guess which answer applies to you.

    If Facebook spent more time deleting the fake profiles, spam accounts – and only concentrate on real humans being on their system , then they could provide a more humane interaction.

    Jeff, your blog is extremely informative. I’m glad I found you on TWITTER.

    I’m new to Twitter, and hoping it will help drive traffic to my website. But in the meantime, I have found it a huge source of information and advice.

    I’m struggling to educate my coworkers that twitter works while at the same time trying to learn how to tweet better. It’s hard, I’m a long winded type of gal trying to live in a new, 140 character world. ;-D

    The comments attached to this post are great evidence as to the value of Twitter. I use Twitter to drive traffic to my BLOG on my website. Tracking the tweets each day is as easy as looking at my Google Analytics. It’s like clockwork. The 140 characters also makes you a better writer, more concise.
