Enkele uitspraken uit het boek:
When people ask me “why Twitter?” I often think to myself, why email? Why telephone? Why networking events? Why paper and pencil? Why talk?
Twitter is a communications hub that pulls together key features all of these media and extends them with the speed and reach of the Internet. The beauty of Twitter is in its simplicity and versatility. Keep your eyes on a Twitter stream
for a while, and you’ll find that the same kinds conversations occur between people, anywhere people gather.
How much time will it take? You need to manage your time, but the work that goes into holding conversations and building relationships on Twitter will take more of your time… not less. You can’t just spit out the occasional Tweet and expect solid results. Visibility means activity. To gain followers and potential business associates, you’ll need to spend time paying attention and making dialogue.
I also have what I call my ABC’s for earning attention from the people I follow:
• Ask questions. If they’re doing something that interests you, ask about it.
• Be nice. Don’t be pushy, give compliments, and provide good advice.
• Connect by relating the interests that you have in common with others.
The “free” aspect of social media, and of Twitter in particular, might sound appealing, but that
shortage of time can take some of the shine off, so to speak.
Social media isn’t a lost cause for small businesses, though. In working with my consulting and coaching clients I’ve worked out that it’s definitely possible to get a great return on your investment of time in Twitter, if you make a habit of giving it 20 minutes of quality time every day.
