20 Ways to Tweet: For Companies, Corporations and Small Businesses

| July 30, 2009 | 12 Comments
There are three categories you might fall under when it comes to social media:


1) You could be using social media to grow your business or personal brand.
2) You could be looked at as the office guru when it comes to social media not because you know a lot about it, but because you’re young or
3) You could be clueless.


Regardless of which category you fall under, you’ll most likely have to address the question of ‘What the hell do I talk about?’  The presentation below address that question as it relates to Twitter, and uses examples from small biz, companies, and corps on 20 different things you can tweet about.  Enjoy.

    I actually get a lot more interaction from my personal company account than from our brand account. Even though I tweet in the same style, I think social media users feel more comfortable interacting with a brand rep, a 'human', then a company, even though the same person is behind it!

    I think being helpful is the most important 1. Plays in to answering questions people have. If you help people out in your industry there is a great chance they will see what you are all about.

    I agree. People really want to see the person behind it all. We have the same situation here at Under30…we get a lot more interaction with our personal accounts then the company one. Same people though.

    Companies can't be social–people can. A company is just a made up entity on a piece of paper. Social media needs to be about the culture and social interaction coming from the made up company!

    It's about being transparent and letting people to get to know your personality.

    Look at @Zappos and Tony Hsieh–you have to make sure it's well known who they are talking to. Nobody wants to talk to the anonymous “company evangelist”. We want people with personalities. REAL PEOPLE.
