do you tweet? tweedee tweets. we got on the twitter band wagon quite a while ago. it was part of our early social networking plans (along with blogging, facebook and our vnl). why? we wanted to be able to talk about and advise our clients when they asked about social networking or marketing trends. at first, i admit, it was a bit odd to just write short tidbits of info or re-tweet interesting things from people we follow, but now twitter has become something much more. we're not the lone wolf any longer. over the past year more of our clients, potential clients & vendors began tweeting. twitter has become a great way for us to keep in touch and share. for example... yesterday steve wrapped up a video for a client and sent it to them for review. they loved it (steve rocks) and immediately posted it to their web site - and they immediately tweeted about it! so, of course, once i noticed their tweet - i re-tweeted it. this helps them and us get exposure. and it lets our client know we are paying attention - passing on the love. tweedee twitters 3-5 times per day. i usually schedule these tweets the night before or in the morning on hootsuite. then i check our twitter site a couple times a day to see if anyone is corresponding with us. so, in total, i probably spend 5 minutes a day updating twitter. i guess i look at twitter like i look at all of our marketing tools: practice what you preach. twitter is social, current, now... so if you have a twitter account use it. i can't suggest a client use twitter and then never update our own page. granted, tweedee productions is not pam anderson or jet blue with thousands of followers, but we do have followers. so join in the fun - if you follow us, we'll follow you!
