Business name: check. Business email: check. Business website: check. Business Twitter account? Um, eh, well...
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 John Knoeppel, Customer Solutions Manager of Best Buy Eatontown(Opening 10/24/09), @EatontownBB: "It's helped us get connected to people who need jobs and want to help with our community events like food drives and blood drives. I've been able to help people with tech questions and even sold products to them without the store being open. The best part so far is that it has torn down the barriers & let us build relationships with people that may have chosen one of our competitors. I believe that by taking care of the people now will result in better retention and turnout for our grand opening."
