Musings re Twitter…

Get yourself on Twitter they said.  Twitter will get you many followers and give you a good overall knowledge of your marketing business they said.

Well, yes, followers are amazingly easy to get on Twitter if you, yourself, start following some of the power tweeters. Now, when I say “power tweeters” I’m talking about those who tweet something new every few minutes throughout the day and night.  I’ll check my account, leave it for a couple of hours and come back to 150+ new tweets, the majority by a handful of users.  They totally drown out the individuals who tweet once, twice, several times a day, and these people generally have really worthwhile info to share.

I have actually connected with some really helpful and knowledgeable people and have been amazed at their generosity. My quandary now is do I get rid of the power tweeters so I don’t miss the individual, useful tweets, or do I persevere and build my list of followers??

I would love to hear the experiences of others and how they deal with this!  🙂

Time Zones & Online Marketing

Hands up those who find that dealing with time zones from one side of the world to the other can be SO frustrating!  Online marketing and selling obviously goes on 24 hours per day but unless you have a staff who can man phones and computers for that period, then there can be a significant delay in getting back to potential buyers.

You would hope that such buyers would realise that you aren’t ignoring them and will get back to them as soon as possible, but I would hate to think that sales are lost due to people wanting an immediate response.

Not much more to add, but just needed to get that off my chest!  Rant over… lol
