Twitter is now 9 years old and I thought sharing how to create your Twitter success story, today of all days, was quite relevant. Before I get started I want to share my Twitter success story. You’ll understand why when you get to the end of it.
I saw Twitter for the first time in 2008. The interface made no sense to me as my friend Dave was telling me it was going to be the next big thing. A short time later I heard Dorothy Beach, a Dallas based recruiter, present on Twitter and how companies and people were using it for job search.
Since I worked for a career counselor at that time and we were telling the clients that they needed to be using Twitter, I registered a company Twitter account and that is when my addiction started.
I quickly connected with Twitter and all the potential available to business owners. I started getting expert requests to interview the company owner for news articles, blog posts, radio and TV.
In early 2009, I went to work for a web design firm as a contractor managing their client social media accounts. That same year, I started LissaDuty.com, providing social media maintenance services to small businesses, consultants, authors and more.
In 2010, I added social media coaching to my business model after discovering how much I loved speaking and teaching others how to leverage social media for their businesses.
I created all my Twitter success from one strategy that I am going to share today.
If you question if this strategy works, look no further then my own story. This is the exact strategy I used in 2009 and still use today that has gotten me to where I am.
So today, after sharing all of this I ask, do you have a Twitter success story? Share it below in the comments.
If not, get out and start making one today. It is a simple as sending the first tweet and taking if one tweet at a time.
