Get Started with Twitter Today: A Beginner’s Guide

twitter-bird-2Have you ever wondered if you should put your business on Twitter?

Early this year, I wondered the same thing … but I had no idea how to get started.

After the Web Copywriting Intensive, I made the decision to get started. And since then, I’ve learned a lot about using Twitter, and also uncovered a number of tools that make this unique social network much more useful.

If you fall into the same camp I did — interested, but uncertain where to start — then let me show you what I’ve learned …

This is a “Twitter Beginner’s Guide” to help you see if Twitter is right for your business. You’ll find the basics of setting up an account, how to get started tweeting, and terms you need to know to be successful.

Twitter can help you and your business to:

  • Improve connections in your niche market
  • Get up-to-date information from top-notch copywriters
  • Build relationships online with companies you would like to work for
  • Share your business message with thousands of people
  • Position yourself so national and international companies can find you
  • Bring more engaged viewers to your professional website
  • Improve your marketing strategy by reaching a wider mobile audience
  • And more

How do I know you can do all of this with Twitter? Because I have done each of these things over the past five months — and you can do them too.

By the end of this article, you’ll know everything you need to feel confident about using Twitter. I’m going to share my experience, as well as tips and tricks from experts like Sarah Milstein and Tim O’Reilly, who co-wrote The Twitter Book.

To get started, go through the general evaluation below to see if Twitter would be a good fit for your business.

Is Twitter right for my business?

  1. Do you know what message you want to share with your target audience?
  2. Can you allocate 30 minutes or less for Twitter daily?
  3. Do you write a blog that could use a wider audience?
  4. Do you consistently read articles with helpful quotes, facts, or ideas your target audience might find useful?
  5. Would you like to build relationships with many different types of companies?
  6. Do you mind not personally knowing the people who receive your messages?

If you answered “Yes” to more than half of these questions, Twitter would be a good social platform for you to try.

  • Nikole, that was such useful information. I have been wanting to get started with Twitter but was always so confused when I heard about the hashtag and the @ symbol and what they meant. You really broke this down for us beginners and for those of us who are extremely visual. I look forward to Tweeting about Wellness Travel for Hotels and Resorts.
