Comment: “I personally use Twitter to share a lot of web, marketing and small business tips that I’ve found on blogs and web sites with people who follow me. I also use it to promote my own blog. But I use it even more to just engage in casual banter. As an extremely social person I want people to learn about me, but as a business owner, I also need people to learn from me. Twitter lets me do both.”

Erica Conway, co-owner of C2 Graphics


Sample Tweet: “Thanks! We’re actually just getting them up to speed on Social Media. Some great things happening there. 2010 will be exciting.”
Comment: “I started tweeting as an exploration of Twitter for our clients, and to see if it made sense for C2 to add it to our marketing mix. I follow our competitors to see how they’re using it, Iget the inside scoop on industry trends from others I follow. I personally began to love it, because I’m an enthusiastic eavesdropper. It was fun to talk to strangers, jump in on conversations and share my insights. It’s been good for business. I’ve strengthened my existing personal and professional networks and connected with new ones. There’s so much potential!”

Grant Johnson, founder and CEO of Johnson Direct


Sample Tweet: “Just found out a recent campaign DOUBLED sales! The power of measurable marketing…”
Comment: “I tweet because it’s a powerful way to “Start the dialog” with colleagues, friends, clients and prospects. It’s a great means to share information with those who follow you … quickly and efficiently. As I do a lot of national writing, blog posts and interviews, it’s a fast way to share ideas, thoughts and opinions with those who, hopefully, think you have something meaningful to say. It’s another tool in the measurable marketing tool box and when done correctly, adds relevancy and credibility to you and your work.”

Kay Collins, owner of KBC Tour Company


Sample Tweet: “Two tours booked today for August 2010. Already thinking about what I am going to eat on a stick at Wis State Fair.”
Comment: “I tweet to keep up with the latest happenings, to get people’s opinions and share my experiences. It’s great for making new connections. I like Twitter because you pick the people you want to “converse” with. Local, national & international – based on your niche interests.”
