16 Quick Tips About How To Use Twitter For Business if You're A Local Entrepreneur (Part 1)

16 Quick Tips About How To Use Twitter For Business if You're A Local Entrepreneur (Part 1) | Competitive Edge | Scoop.it

Do you know how to use Twitter for business if you’re a local entrepreneur? 

If you don’t you should and this is a 2 part series on how to use Twitter as a local owner and really gain business from this amazing social network.There are over 300,000,000 people active on Twitter and in the United States alone over 88 million people visit Twitter each month.That means almost 40% of the adult population (more than 1 out of every 3 adults) are using Twitter here in the United States alone.With those kind of numbers, Twitter for business owners locally smells like a lot of opportunity to me.You see the great part about Twitter, unlike some of the other social platforms, is that you don’t have to have someone following you for you to engage with them (that is huge).Simply find someone that you’d like to start engaging with and you can message them directly by simply @mentioning them in your Tweet.Pretty cool, right?So let’s go over some awesome strategies in the exact order your should follow as a local business owner.First though if you’re wondering why you should follow these suggestions and does it really work, let me tell you what it did for me as a local service based business owner.From 2007-2012 our local cleaning company was actively using Twitter. We were doing $20,000 a week in sales and not only attracted new customers regularly from Twitter, but we also lowered our business churn (losing customers) by utilizing Twitter.Want to know how?Let’s get started, but make sure to follow this exact order.

Startup pitch: PinMeTo wants to show businesses the importance of location data

Startup pitch: PinMeTo wants to show businesses the importance of location data | Competitive Edge | Scoop.it
In the quest for a way for businesses to improve the management and use of location data, PinMeTo was born.

PinMeTo has a dialogue with a large number of international companies and organisations in tourism and retail which see the problem as important and something that must be resolved.

Melkersson says:

“In the dialogue with our customer segment it has become clear that the problem is much bigger than you might think.”

Five reasons for businesses to pay more attention on location data:

  • You get free viral marketing from your visitors.
  • You will be more visible on search engines and social media.
  • You get extremely targeted marketing channels.
  • You get to know your visitors better and what they say about their visit with you.
  • You get to know if you have accurate information about your place on search engines and social media.

Should Your Company Try a Work From Anywhere Week?

Should Your Company Try a Work From Anywhere Week? | Competitive Edge | Scoop.it
It's possible to get both the benefits of remote work and those of a co-located team, insists this CEO.

It's no shock that employees love to work remotely. Deciding when and where to work is liberating and eases work-life balance stress, after all. But it comes as more of a shock to some bosses that study after study shows remote work can actually increase productivity as team members find the right conditions for focus and creativity.

But co-located teams have plenty to recommend them too. Employees who work together can bounce ideas off each other more easily, serendipitous encounters lead to fresh thinking, bonding is easier, decisions can be made more quickly.

So which do you choose -- a remote team or the traditional setup with everyone in the same office? You don't have to pick just one, insists Mike Del Ponte, CEO of water filter company Soma. Not if you follow his example and opt for a "Work From Anywhere Week" for your team, at least. Read more: click image or title.

Working from home has many advantages. Alternating it with team work at the office sounds like an excellent formula.

  • Relaxtion, and working as long as you want
  • Being able to stay in bed, and even working from home
  • Taking as many breaks as you please
  • Not having to be around your co-workers

 

In my opinion, I would love for this to actually take place. I would love to be able to relax while working, and even getting to spend time with my family. Much less stress would take place, and a lot more people would be happier.
