Twittering Around!

posted on 27th of june, 2009

I'm in love with Twitter! It's a fantastic marketing tool for microstock photographers that appears deceptively simple - but has many nuances to discover. What a great way to connect with web designers, publishers, and just about anyone else who might buy your photography.

Here are a few books about Twitter and business that I've downloaded to my Kindle (you can also get them the good old-fashion way as the printed page!) :

Twitter Power: How to Dominate Your Market One Tweet at a Time

Twitter: Free Social Networking For Business - 100 Success Secrets To Increase Your Profits and Sales Using Twitter Business Strategies

Social Media Marketing: An Hour a Day

Once you get into Twitter, you'll want to do a little experimenting with other Twitter apps. These tools really make Twitter come alive.
Here are a few that I use:
- TweetDeck - great for communicating with and keeping track of everyone
- TwitPic - post a pic on Twitter
- TweetBeep - kind of like Google Alerts - but for Twitter
- Twitter List- search tool from Squidoo, allows you to create topic lists from Tweets

Great information. I just signed up with them a week or so ago. Have gotten as far as following a few groups, and some have started following me. But that's about as far as I've gotten.
