Do you know what Twitter is? It’s a social media platform that lets users blast short messages, or ”tweets” to friends and fellow artists from the Twitter website. But it’s not just for staying in touch with friends. It’s also a great way to publicize your Etsy shop. You post a note for your followers in 140 characters or less. Yikes! For a chatty writer like me, this can be a little challenging. The most surprising thing about Twitter is just how much fun reading and writing 140 character posts can be! There are few marketing tools that deliver a powerful punch and are such fun to use.
I’ve been reading a great book for reference while setting up my Twitter profile: “twitter power” by Joel Comm. Following his approach to Twitter marketing has been easy and very helpful since I’m somewhat technically challenged when it comes to building a web presence. I recommend this book to all newbies on twitter.
