Using Twitter for Business from ‘The Cheeky Marketeer’

Appropriately enough, I found out about ‘The Cheeky Marketeer’ blog from one of our followers on Twitter. The author hasn’t updated in quite some time–a shame, because she has some excellent postings, in particular this post on using Twitter for business.

Blogger and marketing professional Ingrid Catlin outlines the 4 top methods of using Twitter for business, including:

1. Broadcasting company news & events

2. Providing customer service/support

3. Promote new offers/discounts/sales

4. Build a community around your brand

I highly recommend reading the full article in detail, especially if you keep a Twitter for your company (we do!) I also recommend reading ‘Thoughts of an Average American (as Imagined by a Marketing Executive)’…just for laughs!
