I just Love to share!  Since I’ve learned so many wonderful things of late as a Virtual Assistant, I wanted to share a few.  I’ve chosen a few special Tips about Twitter to discuss here!  I hope you like them or that they help you as they’ve helped me!

One of the first wonderful sites that helped me and continues to is – SocialOomph.  This site is great for scheduling tweets, monitoring if you have been mentioned or your tweets retweeted and it also has the ability to search on keywords for you.  All of these things and a bunch more for Free!  The ‘pay business’ account for SocialOomph offers even more resources for users.

Now, as a Virtual Assistant,  I follow some folks almost daily.  These folks are my ‘online’ mentors. I visit their blogs and websites frequently.  When I noticed that Scott Monty, Ford Social Media specialist, also recommends SocialOomph, I knew I must have found a real gem for Twitter!  My daddy, a Naval Mechanic, was a Ford man, so I follow Scott’s blog almost daily.  In his recent post on Twitter “Enough is Enough”, he talks about SocialOomph as a tool that has successfully helped him.

I also recently was given a link to a new site that provides the same type of services as SocialOomph, and although, I admit, I have not used it very much, it seems very useful.  Tweetminer, has been highly recommended to me as the newest and easiest to use for scheduling and monitoring tweets.

Another tool that is really helpful to get Company’s information out there and visible, is Twellow.  This is a yellow pages for Twitter.  When I create a new Twitter account for clients now, I automatically sign them up at Twellow.  After all, it is all about getting the Company information out there as often as possible.

As of October, 2009, Flickr reports that 33% of the users on Twitter are from ages 18-29 and 22% of the users are from ages 30-49.  This is 55% of the folks that are Tweeting and the age range that most  companies are targeting.  I just read an article today that says that Twitter is estimated to be worth $600 million and it has about 70 million users on a daily basis, worldwide.  These numbers make it impossible to ignore Twitter as a possible tool for all businesses.

I hope that these Twitter Tips help you.  If there is anything that I can do to help you further, please feel free to contact me.  I Love Input, so just pop in and give me a comment 🙂 `Anita

Well here it is – my Day 1 blog on WordPress. I guess we all start somewhere – Reminds me of my favorite quote from Martin Luther King – You can take one step at a time, not necessarily the whole staircase – baby steps,  I like that 🙂 This will be for my virtual assistant stuff that I’m learning day by day.  After about a month of long hours

  • sitting in this chair
  • reading
  • pouring over information
  • checking out 5 websites at one time – I really just have to say

Thanks Kim! I have learned a great deal in a very short time thanks to a great teacher. WE all need that – someone who will help you, teach you, listen to you and it helps when she is the miracle worker of the internet. For years I had realized that if you want to know how to do something online or find some info – just ask Kim Wesley.  Naturally she is now the owner of TKM Virtual Services.
Now here I am with a Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn accounts.   Although I’ve used the computer for years, I will admit that I am new to all the tools of social media, networking and forums.  Yet with direction, dedication and great teaching, I am feeling more confident every day now.

A few things I’ve learned already are how to use other sites to help you along (I’m loving & bet a few others are:  http://www.socialoomph.com).
I guess the connections that happened immediately to people I know; but also those I do not,  are Amazing me too!
Stay well out there friends in the Virtual World 🙂
