Yesterday we marked our 200,000th member here at ActiveRain and I got the honor to throw a pretty dang cool party on Twitter. With more than 1,200 tweets from AR members, we celebrated with eachother and gave away prizes.
One of the coolest parts of the day (although there were many cool moments) was seeing so many members that created a Twitter account that very day and starting to really like using Twitter. They learned by doing and jumped right in, and did fabulous at it!
It made me realize that although Twitter has now rivaled Facebook for much more than a year, many people are scared of trying it out or just don't get the point.
My goal: Get you on to Twitter...and make you like it!
Why you should be on Twitter:
1. Contrary to popular belief, it's not just a waste of time. I'll even show you how to save time in a later post.
2. You get to share information with your followers and in turn you'll learn a great deal of information from who you follow (much like here in the 'Rain)
3. It's one more way to get your face out there in front of people. If you google search "ActiveRain", guess what comes up? In the number five slot, is our Twitter account. And that's competing with all your millions of amazing posts.
4. It's another way for you to brand and share your personality. I keep hearing on ActiveRain how buyers found an agent based on their blog, what they wrote and how they liked them. This is another way for people to discover how much they like you and trust you.
5. Maybe you just like the straight facts*:
27% of the 106+ million users log-in everyday.
25% of users follow a brand
48% are in college, while an additional 28% have college degrees.
57% of users are between the ages of 26-44.
31% make between $51K-$100K.
Are these the people you are trying to reach? Is it part of your business plan to build your online presence and strengthen your reputation?
I'll post tomorrow the step-by-step on how to set up your Twitter account. It's easy and I'll even share some tips and examples that have helped me.
