To tweet or not to tweet
I have been struggling with Twitter and the value it brings. The more I play with it, the more I find the value in it. My business partner, Jayson Manship has been more active with Twitter than I have and he predictably had better results. Jayson has used Twitter search to find people in the new home building industry and is now following quite a few. They in turn are following him. This resulted in a builder in Canada contacting us about our business. Jayson's Twitter activity also resulted in a mention in a Builder Online about new ways builders are using Twitter to connect to buyers.
My success with Twitter has been through the Activerain feature for having my AR blog posts automatically posted on my Twitter page. This has resulted in several new followers. If you have not taken advantage of this feature yet you need to. Just click on your "my settings" button. You will find a place to type in your Twitter name and pass word. Once you have saved your settings, every time you add a post to your Activerain blog, an announcement will be added to your Twitter page. This has been an invaluable addition to my Activerain account.
