10 Things You Can Tweet About

Post Date: May 1st, 2011


I speak with many small business owners who have very little knowledge about tweeting. They understand the need to have a consistent social media presence, but don't know what types of messages to convey.  
It gets a little trickier when you have to then convey your message in 140 characters or less, as well as considering whether your tweets should include a link or not.  Not all tweets should contain a link since this may be thought of as over-selling. 
Here is a list of 10 things you should consider tweeting about:
1) Your favorite quotes.  This tells people a bit about your values, which is important when getting people to know, like and trust you. It is also something that people can easily retweet.
2) Let people know of your current blog posts – give them a shortened link (tinyurl) to your actual post, not a link to your general blog.
3) Industry news – let people know of the latest news that may benefit them. It can help create credibility and sets you up as a resource.
4) Events that you are involved in or hosting – give them a link to a website/webpage that gives more information about the event.
5) Your products or services – let people know what you have to offer. Give them a link to your products/services webpage.
6) Personal information – give people a chance to get to know you as a person. People feel better about buying from friends. 
7) Invite people to "Like" your Facebook fanpage.
8) Review something in your industry. This could include a book, website, class, report, etc.
9) Share any videos that you have created.  Give them a link to the video, either through youtube or your website.
10) You can tweet about other people's products and services as an affiliate and earn extra income in the process.
