Are you Twittering?

My social Network on Flickr, Facebook, Twitter...Image by luc legay via FlickrSocial Networking has become a major way to promote your business and the Business Coaching blog talks about Twitter.

Twitter is one of the many forms of Social Networking that includes Facebook, My Space, and many others.

Twitter is relatively easy to use and a great opportunity to meet people. In Twitter you basically follow what people have to say and they follow what you have to say.

However, there is many on Twitter who just become marketing machines and all they do is inundate you with marketing and PR. There is a fine line that you need to be careful not to cross.

I have had many people follow my twitters only to check out their pages and it is full of self promotions and advertising links.

So remember, Twitter is an excellent opportunity to meet people. It is also an opportunity for people to find out what you have to offer. Just remember the social aspect of it and make sure you are not using it way to SPAM people.

When you set up your account be sure to include a picture, have a link to your website and additional contact information. Many people will check out this information before following people. Then follow some other people that you find interesting and before you know it, you will be a Twitter expert.
