Most people who know me know I’m slow to adapt to technology (with the exception of this blog that I’ve been doing for nearly five years). So it’s no surprise that I’ve resisted getting into Twitter and Facebook – despite the urging of business associates and family … until now.
I’ve collected a file folder full of “how-to” articles and tools for using Twitter from social media experts. But I was curious about what other small businesses were doing with it, so I surveyed several colleagues to learn about their experience. I got some great advice while also taking comfort from a few who are still deciding when/if to join the fray. [Special thanks to those of you who responded to my questions.]
My biggest hesitation (besides the technology thing – seriously, I’m not even experienced in sending text messages!) is the time issue. It’s a major concern my colleagues tell me, yet they are finding ways to manage it by tweeting once a day to a few times a week.
Guess I’ll have to take that jump further into the social media pool.
Stay tuned …
