All that aside, there are still come best practices to follow when setting up your Twitter profile that can help you navigate these issues and come out with a great looking home for all your tweets. read more

People in the business world – especially in tech fields – always talk about the importance of being a leader. Sometimes, however, it’s good to be a follower.

A Twitter follower, that is. Twitter is a fantastic and often underused resource for social media and business know-how. Many small business owners follow blogs, websites, and Facebook pages, but don’t think of Twitter as a place for reliable advice.

Twitter’s mobility also means you can multi-task by learning while waiting in line or riding public transit. read more

We’ve shared hundreds of articles offering advice on how to create a successful social media presence. But sometimes the question isn’t how, but when?

We have observed that Pagemodo users who run small businesses are long on enthusiasm for social media, but are always short on time. In a recent survey by eVoice, small business owners reported that the single most valuable asset to their business was time – not their computer, not their website, not their storefront location. We realized that the most important thing we could do right now for our small business users was not to give them more advice; what they really need is more time. read more

Our September Content Roundup continues today with a discussion of best practices for your Twitter content strategy. This post assumes you’re already familiar with Twitter and have set up your business account. If you need a refresher of the terminology we’ll be using, here’s a helpful glossary of Twitter terms.

What began as a way for people to share thoughts, vent frustrations, and otherwise express themselves in 140 character fragments, has now become a powerful tool that can play a crucial role in any good content marketing strategy. In order to help you maximize Twitter’s potential, we’ll cover how best to share content, when to share it, and what you should be sharing.
