Do you need some Business?

By
Real Estate Agent with Missy Caulk TEAM

Need to grow your business?

Tried Twitter?

So you don't get it?

Have a few questions?

The trend is really growing for Twitter, not a day goes by that I don't meet people?

Have a quick question?

People love to help out and are quick to get back to you?

It is time to position yourself NOW for the future, things change all the time, social networks come and grow. MySpace is down, still hot but down by 1%, Twitter is growing, 2.6 million strong up 442% through August.

Watch and learn to set up a Twitter Account, and get going for 2009. Thanks Maria Andros from @mariaAndros at Twitter.

Ack. I need a clone. So much networking, so little time. I've just spent the past three days updating my Facebook profile. I've got to figure Twitter out next!

I have been on twitter for about two weeks. I think like anything you need to spend your time finding people that you want to socialize with and value their opinion. I personally find it time consuming and yes I have tweetdeck so it comes right to my laptop and I have a twitter app on my iphone. I think like anything people need to find a balance. I have actually found it more useful for personal things than business so far. I have a special needs kiddo and got some great links to information on twitter. I will stay on for those personal reasons alone, but whether it does anything for my business...only time will tell.

Hve been using twitter for a long time, a couple of years I think. Seems to work best if I don't just follow Realtors. I am not sure why but my connections in the community seem to bring me more business.

Jason, friend me.

Joel, same thing for me and then I don't have to write a "I need help post" on Activerain. Short sweet and lots of help.

Connie, I know how you feel, you just have to jump in and start talking to folks you know. It has grown so much, when I first joined I felt the same way, "no one talks to me". At some point it will all click and that is all I can say about that.

Kathy, I made that same mistake and quickly took it off my phone. Now I log on to Slandr from my phone and can twit if I am waiting on an appointment.

Matt, LOL...

Dean, it is the search at the bottom you can search for anything there and follow it in TweetDeck.

Teresa, I don't just follow or am followed by Realtors either. Met lots of totally new people on there both from MI and my conservative Republican friends.

You KNOW that I LOVE Twitter! It is such a great way to connect with so many so quickly. I'm pretty new at it, but I believe there is tremendous potential and benefit. I'm trying to think of ways to use it that will even give me greater exposure and opportunity. BTW...I get excited when I see you 'pop' up on Twitter. Do you even know just how special you are? ~GBU~

Missy...

I just stopped in to throw another comment on this post. It got my attention because over the last few days I've received a bunch of requests to follow. I guess I better turn off AVG so I can access my Twitter Account. Oh. Wait. You're gonna want to know about that. When I decline Twitter Cookies Twitter holds my account hostage. I Have to re-set AVG to access and it's a pain in the you know what :) 

TLW...ROAR!

TLW, ughh. I get so many requests. I wish it was more like facebook and I could just delete them and then when I logged on to Twitter they would all be there, instead of having to do it right now. So frustrating.
