Promoting your Brand Using Twitter

August 18, 2009

Sorry it’s been a few days but there was some important security news yesterday so I needed to break from the online branding theme and talk about security for a day.

Although Twitter only allows you to input 140 characters, you can say a lot in that little space. Twitter is a great way to promote your website or your blog. If you post a new article on your website or write a new blog post, you can tweet a tag line and then link to your blog or site using a tinyurl. A tinyurl takes your website address or blog address and shortens it to take up less space on your tweet. By finding people in your industry or organizations that relate to your business on Twitter, you can get up to the minute news before you are able to receive it from traditional media outlets.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my mini series on online branding and promoting your company using new social media outlets. If you have anymore questions, feel free to comment or shoot me an e-mail.
