Does Twitter do a business good?

Business name: check. Business email: check. Business website: check. Business Twitter account? Um, eh, well...

I know. Social networking can be overwhelming. Between Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, this new form of networking and marketing can be confusing and time consuming, but I'm telling you: it's worth the effort.

Each Tuesday, I'm going to share with you a sampling of some New Jersey companies, organizations and entrepreneurs who have embraced Twitter and made the social networking site work well for them. And you'll hear from different "Tweeps" to learn how Twitter works for them. While you're browsing the list below, take a look at the quality of their Tweets and frequency of @ replies. It's not just about making announcements and sharing links. It's also about customer service and keeping a constant dialog and communication with your "followers."

From Erik Kent, co-founder of, @NJWedding: I say that #Twitter helps you make good contacts, spreads marketingg messages easily, is a popular site and it's FREE!

Cool. Thanks for the shout-out. I wonder if I'm getting noticed on the local level. As a small firm, though, I just enjoy the Twitter interaction among Internet friends.

Thanks again -
