Read On Book Review ~ twitter Revolution
Here's a book I think might interest you: twitter Revolution ~ How Social Media and Mobile Marketing is Changing the Way we Do Business and Market Online by Deborah Micek @CoachDeb & Warren Whitlock @WarrenWhitlock
If you don't have tweeps, aren't familiar with the twitterverse or haven't started tweeting, it's time to get on board with the twitter Revolution.
Twitter is a micro-blogging site unparalleled to any other platform on the Internet today. In 140 characters or less tweeps connect with one another to share information, build relationships and yes, do business.
Admittedly, I know just enough to be dangerous when it comes to technology. So, I was thrilled to find @CoachDeb and @WarrenWhitlock had created, what I refer to as "the ultimate twitter handbook" aka twitter Revolution (which is a very real book with a virtual twist - meaning chapters are continued and ever-evolving on-line - very clever indeed).
In twitter Revolution, I learned all things twitter and highly recommend you grab a copy if you want to get up to speed fast. (Yes, this specifically means my friends and acquaintances who have scoffed at the thought that twitter is a viable means of connection for both personal and business reasons.)
The book is well laid out and includes four sections:
1. Twitter Guide to Understanding Twitter and Getting Started with the Communications Revolution
2. Success on Twitter
3. Influence and Persuasion to Position & Brand Yourself on Twitter and Other Social Networks
4. iChapters - the Twitter Playbook
ou'll find great tips to get started, really embrace social networking and solid examples of how twitter works.
The bottom line is, it's really all about relationships. I'm excited to dive in and start implementing the techniques I learned in twitter Revolution.
Twitter has expanded my thinking, connected me with lucrative business contacts (leading to paid gigs & guest appearances on teleseminars), given me a fun outlet to connect with likeminded friends and tweet about health, Wii, wine, cooking and other things I'm passionate about. Plus, I'm able to give back by sharing knowledge and tips with other tweeps.
If you've been resisting and are not quite ready to jump on the social media band wagon (which by the way, isn't a passing fad), you'll want to grab twitter Revolution and get started today. When you do, be sure to add me to your tweeps on twitter @WriteOnCreative.
