I have been using twitter for my company and for personal use for some time now I love it! I have been on Facebook even longer and love it even more, despite reading how it was created. There are so many possibilities with social media but the most important thing, in my opinion is that you are able to connect with people, brands, and companies and follow their updates and news. I feel more connected to the brands/companies that I follow and I appreciate them giving me information about their products or services on the social media platforms that I participate in.
As a business owner, there are so many ways to use social media to promote your business. I like to look into these new marketing outlets as much as I can. I recently found something that proved to be VERY interesting. Have you tweeted or posted information on Facebook/Twitter that you would really like to have had more exposure? Do you have an ebook, free *.pdf or a downloadable product that you are selling that needs more attention? Why not make people pay for it with a tweet? It doesn't involve any complex coding either! All you do is go to: this link (http://www.paywithatweet.com/sell.php) and enter in your information. On this page, the pay with a tweet creators suggest using a URL shortener such as bit.ly to shorten your URL. Bit.ly also allows you to track how many clicks you get on that URL, which is very handy information when trying to track your marketing campaign's effectiveness.
This really is a very good service that I highly recommend to small companies just trying to get more exposure for their products! If you have any experience using this Pay With A Tweet service and have any feedback, we would love to hear it! Use our comment form below!
