Complete Guide to Twitter for Business eBook

Services for Real Estate Pros with Transparent BPO

I'm about to do something I rarely ever do, that's use this blog post to promote a product.

Complete Guide to Twitter for Business ebookThe reason I'm making the exception in this case is that it's my product I'm promoting, the Complete Guide to Twitter for Business.

The guide is a 35-page ebook contains everything you'll need to start maximizing the value of your investment in Twitter.

It will teach you:

  • How to choose a Twitter handle, set up your account and start using Twitter right away.
  • Who to connect with in order to maximize your potential for business development, lead generation and sales!
  • The right and wrong ways to engage others in conversation.
  • Cool Twitter techniques like @reply, direct messaging and retweets.
  • How to create a Twitter for business action plan.

Whether you are a Twitter novice or a veteran user, I dare say you'll find something useful.

While I would love to give the ebook away for free, I cannot. There are too many hours invested in its development to do so. However, at $9.95 it's almost like giving it away. (That's a special price just for Active Rainers too, btw.)

Plus, I offer a 100% money back guarantee. If, for any reason, you are not satisfied with the book, I'll refund your full purchase price and you get to keep the book free as my gift. You've literally got nothing to lose!

Hi Paul,

Good luck with the book.  Twitter is a viable form of business development and a natural way to engage in conversation.  We talk more like we tweet than like when we blog, at least most times we do, when we engage in 2 way conversation.

I am a new member of Twitter and am figuring out the bells and whistles.  Can you give us some highlights of your book without offering too much info that would make purchasing a waste.  I know you want to get compensated, but give us a little more of a teeze...please.

Paul - sounds like a great tool to have. I love using Twitter altho I could and should do more. Your past articles on Twitter have proven to be excellent advice and suggestions for making the most of being part of the crowd.

@Roland - I guarantee it! Money back guarantee in fact.

@Keahi - Read the book and you will. Get it, that is.

@Bridget - It's kind of a Dummies book, yes, but refrained from using that title. It's written in easy to understand language. Simple instructions as well.

@Connie - Thanks for purchasing the ebook. My Twitter handle is @pchaney and the last page contains lots of ways to contact me.

@Cindy - Let me know how it goes.

@Anthony - You're breakin' my heart man. Try it, you'll like it!

@Rebecca - Thanks!

@Simon - I've got an entire series written on it here. Look back at some of the older posts and you'll find lots of stuff. That formed the framework for the ebook.

@Karen - Red X?

@Jeff - Thanks Jeff. I appreciate the kudos.

We know if must be a good awesome book when it's endorsed by noneother than Active Rich!

I'm getting the hang of Tweeting, but since I don't tweet on my Blackberry, I think I'm missing the boat. (or the Tweet?) I do have it on when I'm at my laptop, and have really learned some interesting things from the links that people have sent out. (via Twhirl...yet another application for use with Twitter.)

I'll pick up a copy in a few days. We are still in the "economy mode" here in ATL!

Thanks for creating this great guide!

Good luck with your book.  So many people are intimidated by twitter.  I got my first twitter referral last month so I'm a believer in using twitter for business.

Paul, that is so cool!  I know that writing a book, even a short one, is very time-consuming.  I admire you for being persistent until you finished it.  I'll check out the affiliate site.

It's taken me a few months to get the hang of Twitter and why to use it (@eduwebconf), but I'm slowly getting it and have made a lot of great contacts through it, so it's definitely worth trying. I don't tweet all day long - who has time for that? - but try to do a posting at least once a day, usually in respone to something else. I find it better to have a "conversation" with someone or several people thru Twitter and learning a lot from the many people I follow than just posting announcements about the annual conference I run in July. And besides, that's the point ... no one wants to hear a one way talk, they/we want to be involved back and forth. I may get the book as well.

Thanks for the tip here, Paul.  And don't be ashamed to plug what I'm sure will be a useful tool for agents out there.  Love the guarantee by the way.

I was thrilled to see an eBook on Twitter as I'm still quite baffled. I bought it & tried signing up for your affiliate program with some hesitation (e-Junkie site not at same quality as your site or what I'm used to working with). Unfortunately I hit the brick wall when I was asked to provide a PayPal account.

Did research on PayPal over a year ago and the feedback on how they treat merchants was horrible, so I've successfully avoided it so far and hope to remain free of this service. I'm using Google Merchant account which offers similar functionality so maybe you'll expand in the future.

PS Fun writing from one handyman (the real thing) to another (softer touch)
