Make Twitter Work for Your Business

Larry Pollock (macsupportcasts) shares Twitter tip as Margo Christensen (PrescottTourism) and Paula Monthofer (PaulaMonthofer) look on.

Sedona, Arizona -- Last night I attended the Sedona / Verde Valley's monthly Tweet-Up at the  Hilton Sedona Resort and Spa. The lively gathering of over thirty business tweople shared Twitter tips. Here are just a few of those Twitter tips on how to make Twitter work for your business:
  1. Link your Twitter to your Facebook account. Save time: your Tweets will automatically populate to your Facebook wall, as shared by Jane Ginn of Sedona Cyber Link.
  2. "I increased my hits 30-50% by adding a video or photo link to my Tweets," said Megan Aronson of SedonaTV and Red Rock TV 16. Tweeting about Sedona? Megan says go to her You Tube channel and help yourself.
  3. Use CalTweet as an event management tool.  Sheryl, our fabulous hostess from HiltonSedona said she likes to use as well. The free service lets you schedule your Twitter messages, but no spam allowed!
  4. is another handy tool for tracking  your Tweets. For instance, TweetStats tells me that I rarely Tweet on Sundays, and hardly ever between midnight and 9 a.m. during the remainder of the week. Using this data, I could schedule Tweets using That might help with building my European and African audience.
  5. Best Twitter tip of all: join us Thursday November 19 at 5:30 Shef's Bar at  Los Abrigado Resort & Spa in Sedona. There will be complimentary appetizers, drink specials and Raffle prizes. Afterwards you can take a tour of the 19th Annual Red Rock Fantasy light show. Tickets are discounted this year" $5/adult, $2/child ages 5-12.

Tweeps from communities across northern Arizona including Sedona, Verde Valley, Flagstaff, Williams, Prescott and Munds Park congregated at Hilton Sedona.

Proceeds from the event and raffle went to Camp Soaring Eagle, a Paul Newman "Hole in the Wall" camp for children with serious and life-threatening medical conditions. Did I mention that I won a HUGE bouquet of fresh flowers and also a year's subscription to Arizona Vines and Wines magazine last night? Yeah, baby!
