50 Ideas on Using Twitter for Business

Posted by TeamITI on May 22, 2009

ideasWe really can’t deny the fact that businesses are testing out Twitter as part of their steps into the social media landscape. You can say it’s a stupid application, that no business gets done there, but there are too many of us (including me) that can disagree and point out business value. I’m not going to address the naysayers much with this. Instead, I’m going to offer 50 thoughts for people looking to use Twitter for business. And by “business,” I mean anything from a solo act to a huge enterprise customer.

Some of the top ideas:

Point out interesting things in your space, not just about you.

Be wary of always pimping your stuff. Your fans will love it. Others will tune out.

Talk about non-business, too

Instead of answering the question, “What are you doing?”, answer the question, “What has your attention?”

Tweet about other people’s stuff. Again, doesn’t directly impact your business, but makes us feel like you’re not “that guy.”

You don’t have to read every tweet.

Twitter brings great minds together, and gives you daily opportunities to learn (if you look for it, and/or if you follow the right folks).

Twitter gives your critics a forum, but that means you can study them.

Go and get all 50 ideas here.

P.S. Oh, by the way, did you know that Dell made $1 million through Twitter?
