Advice of the day

This little blurb comes from an article that’s fresh from the Portland Business Journal. Written by Terry Brock. Brock owns Achievement Systems in Orlando.

As you enter Twitter, don’t go in blabbering about your business and trying to sell your stuff. Think of Twitter as a social networking party — which is what it is online. You wouldn’t think highly of a person you meet at a social networking cocktail party who only wanted to sell you his stuff, hand you his card and blabbered on and on about his ideas. Instead, think of how you can appeal to the other person and find out what is important to him or her. Get to know them. Build a business relationship. This is where Twitter sparkles!

You build relationships on Twitter much like you do in the offline world. Be pleasant. Focus on helping others and have a quality introduction to help people know what you do in business and what you offer.
