There has been a lot of talk about the digital divide. It’s getting bigger. I have a lot of clients who don’t have websites for their successful businesses and I have clients who make all their money exclusively online.
In the past year, I’ve watched and modeled my successful clients in their online businesses. There are so many different paths to money, it can be very distracting.
Along the way, I’ve been building up my Facebook and Twitter. I’m right now at about 750 friends on Facebook and over 10K followers on Twitter. There is something about the “life at 140 characters” speed that I like. It’s great training for copywriting as well. Everything is a headline. What is successful and what isn’t?
But until just a few days ago, I never really thought Twitter worked for making money. Then I noticed that my following on Twitter started becoming more prominent in my tax practice and at TaxLoopholes. We’re meeting new people, helping people save a lot in taxes and making new connections with great professional resources - all through Twitter.
Jorge Manzitti (www.LatAmConnect.com) sent me this link from an article by John Chow. http://bit.ly/11PDhy John Chow is the rock star of making money online. I was surprised to see how successful his tests proved Twitter could be for marketing.
Take a look at the article. Twitter isn’t just for telling your friends you’re going to go get coffee. It’s serious business too.
