Follow Jimmy Kimmel’s example and use mean tweets to your advantage say Jeannie Walters of Steamfeed. Maybe the mean tweets are true and you need to improve your customer service. Or maybe they’re not and you can get a laugh.

Don’t forget – when someone follows your business on Twitter, you’re not the only business they’re following. Do some research to find out what other business messages they see in their tweet stream. Do yours compare favorably or unfavorably?

Ways to make Twitter advertising work for you – define your objectives before you start – are you looking for traffic to your website, to build your email list or to gain more followers

My favorite tip is don’t use hashtags that aren’t relevant to your brand. I hate clicking on a link that is tagged with my neighborhood and find out it has nothing to do with us. Really!

Benchmark your Twitter Analytics. If you’re training for a triathalon, you keep accurate records of your effort and results. Do the same with Twitter – what is your posting schedule, how big is your following, with retweets – how great is your reach. I currently average a little more than 100,000 reach on Twitter every month. My goal is to increase that to 200,000 by the end of the year. I’l track my activity and see what works.
Twitter is public – be careful that your retweets are something you’re willing to stand by, even if your boss or customer disagrees. If not – don’t be controversial. Remember the high level corporate executive who lost his job after videotaping himself giving grief to the fast food worker at Chic Filet
