How to market your small business on Twitter

Tuitter logo

Like any marketing medium, or any medium that can be used for marketing, Twitter offers you results commensurate with how thoughtfully you approach it and how wholeheartedly you engage in it.
Look past its non-traditional exterior to see Twitter’s real ability to connect people in ways that can transform your company a little bit at a time. The following are simple instructions to follow:
1. Remember that success on Twitter can build slowly, and that trying to hurry it by buying followers or using shady shortcuts doesn’t work. As SocialMediaToday points out in a case study of hardball marketing run amok, “There is no magic pill, magic ticket or free ride to success in social media and business.”
2. Be yourself: That means two things on Twitter. First, make your tweets sound like the cohesive voice of your business. If you’re small, capitalise on your identity as a one- or two-person business and equate your size with a focus on treating customers like individuals.
Second, even if you’re bigger than a sole proprietorship, assign one person who’s good at communicating your authentic value as a business to be your official and singular voice on the service. Keeping your participation real goes a long way toward attracting followers.
As Twitter itself suggests, “Share photos and behind the scenes info about your business. Even better, give a glimpse of developing projects and events. Users come to Twitter to get and share the latest, so give it to them!”
3. Balance overt attempts to attract customers with tweets that convey your company’s personality without making an obvious commercial pitch. When you post a discount offer or a special sales event, your followers pay greater attention to it because you’re not always explicitly soliciting their business.
4. Use your Twitter presence to gather more than customers. You can share insights with fellow business people, and even find opportunities to barter services, collaborate on a project with community implications, build a network of like-minded entrepreneurs or learn from veteran business owners.
Use mentions and following strategically to build a position of authority in your field. Twitter recommends that you “Reference articles and links about the bigger picture as it relates to your business.”

Nawa ooo - Lagos receives five million emergency telephone calls monthly

The Lagos State Commissioner for Science and Technology, Mr. Adebiyi Mabadeje, has said that over five million calls are received monthly at the state’s Security Command and Information Management System Centre.
Speaking with journalists at the state e-Learning Centre in Lagos on Friday, the commissioner said the need to match the increase in the number of phone calls with the available calls for appropriate action had become imperative for the government
“The command centre currently records about five million telephone calls from the members of the public on a monthly basis. Though not all the calls are completed calls,”. Mabadeje said.
According to him, the Centre was established as part of measures to ensure excellent communication and collaboration between different stakeholders in the fight against crime in the state.
Mabadeje said the information system would collate and computerise police, judiciary and prison records and ensure that crime investigation would be effective in the state.
He explained that calls to the toll free numbers, 767 and 112, would provide security information that could be processed for necessary action for the government and its agencies in ensuring security of lives and property in the state.
The commissioner said calls to the centre had steadily increased from 417,000 in 2008, to approximately 32,000,000 calls.
