Twitter for Businesses – What Google Searches Won’t Tell You

With Social Media booming as a business marketing tool, many businesses are looking to set up their own corner of the web, including the requisite Twitter account. However, there are still many business owners and internet users not yet familiar with the way Twitter functions. With Twitter’s user-friendly platform, it is relatively easy for a new Twitter user to set up a business account and get noticed in Twitter’s fast-moving online culture by following a few simple steps.

Make Account Setup Easy With a Google Account

The first thing you should be aware of is that you cannot setup multiple accounts under one email address. To make account setup easy, I recommend setting up a Google account for each business you plan to Tweet with. This gives each account a place for notifications and details to be sent, and allows multiple accounts to be set up (for example, if your business has multiple locations, agents or other separate identities).

All Accounts Are Created Equal

Unlike Facebook and Google+, Twitter’s accounts are all the same. This means a business account is set up exactly like a personal account. The only difference between the two is content.

Optimize Your Profile

Profile optimization is all about using the content that will help connect your business to potential customers and associates. Consider what words and language your business uses to brand itself and advertise. Be sure to include taglines, mission statements and other relevant content on your Twitter profile and account to help make the connection between your business and your Twitter account.

Make Your Profile Fun To Look At!

As important as the text on your profile can be, many people forget to spice up the visual part of their profile – something that could prevent new connections from being made. Don’t forget to add a profile picture (maybe your logo or business owner’s image), and create a background that is dynamic and informative. Branding and quality of visual presentation can make a huge impact on your audience, so if you feel you need some professional help with your business’ look, I recommend hiring a professional to help with your branding. It’s usually affordable and something that will have a lasting positive effect on your business’ visual appeal when done right.

Content Is Key, But Interaction Matters, Too!

The point of Twitter is to share (briefly) and interact (briefly). It’s a fast-paced, easy way to connect with customers and get insights and feedback. What you say will ultimately draw other Twitter users in and get them to interact, but if you have no response to their feedback, Twitter will do your business no good. Don’t forget to log in, listen to your followers, and take some time to ask them what they’re looking for from your business or products. It can transform the way you do business and help you better cater to your loyal customers while reaching out to new customers and potential customers who are looking for the products or services you’re offering.

How to Succeed in Your Online Business and Live the Life You Dream

So, I’ve heard that you want to start a successful money making business online. Is that true?

Well, before you start trying to make money online, there is one simple thing that you must do.

It won’t take you a lot of time and you can do it all by yourself. Actually, it is best if you are all alone when you do it. You can do it from anywhere in the world, at anytime of the day or night, and it doesn’t cost a cent. It is very easy to do and almost anybody can do it.

But is a very important first step in starting your money making business. The simple thing that you must do, if you want to succeed, is: DREAM! Of course, if all you do is dream then your business will not get built.

But dreaming about owning and operating a successful money making business is the best place to start. Visualizing how your life will be better is a great motivator. A clear vision of what success looks like will keep you focused on your goal. Too many people jump right into the online world trying to make money with no clear idea, vision, or dream of what they want. They buy into somebody else’s dream. Then they get frustrated when things do not turn out like the pictures in the ads. Then they quit. And that is a shame. Do not let that happen to you!

Take the time to dream of what YOU REALLY want in life and in your business. Try it now! Picture in your mind what your success will look like.

You don’t have to be specific about what business you will be in, or where you will live, or even how much money you will make. But actually dream about the lifestyle, freedom, and security you want in your life. Focus on what success looks like to you. This is a very critical step in the process of starting your business. Visualizing success is a fundamental part of setting goals. It gives you something to work toward. Always keep that vision in your mind.

Do not let anybody, or anything, get in the way of you living the life you have imagined. Focus on your dream and do what it takes, every day, to make that dream come true. I know. Easier said than done.

But countless successful athletes, business people, doctors, lawyers, and moms and dads from all over the world use positive dreams to motivate them to keep going. They keep their eye on the prize and do what it takes to work toward their dream.

If you constantly live with negative thoughts and fear; If you always look for reasons why something will not work; If you never start anything because you lack confidence in your ability; then take a break and start over. But be sure to start with YOUR dream.

How Creative Visualization Helps Problem Solving

Want to know just how powerful creative visualization can be? Imagine, for a moment, that you have an instant hotline to the future. With this hotline, you can answer any question that you have: Should you go for that new promotion, or stay in your current role for a bit longer? Should you give your ex another chance? Is it time to put a down payment on a new home?

When it comes to problem solving, most people would love to have this kind of revealing access in the face of the toughest problems in your life. From careers to relationships – and everything in between – how many of us would take the advice of a psychic if they were correct on 9 out of 10 predictions?

Well, guess what: you do have that kind of uncanny access to solving even the toughest dilemmas – and it is called creative visualization.

Manifesting Your Solutions

Creative visualization is exactly how it sounds: it is a type of visualization method that unlocks your hidden potential to “see” by tapping into the subconscious powers of your mind. Everyone knows how to visualize objects, places, people, etc., by conjuring up that image into the brain. But visualization does not involve conjuring up memories or information that is stored in our consciousness; instead, you visualize your ultimate goals in order to manifest these thoughts into reality.

If you have heard of the law of attraction before, then you know just how powerful visualization can be. After all, the world is composed entirely of energy – and by focusing the energy of your thoughts onto your goals and dreams, you can deliberately create your perfect future. Visualization is the ultimate means of focusing your mind of that perfect future. By picturing what it is that you want from life, your thoughts will soon become instant action.

So how can this help with problem solving? Simple: creative visualization can also help you to manifest solutions to any of your problems – no matter how tough they may be.

How to Visualize Your Problem into Solutions

Ever heard of the expression “go to sleep on it”?

Think about the last time you have had an argument or faced a tough issue at work. Your brain may be churning away with thoughts of obstacles, and frustrated at a lack of viable solutions. But then after a good night’s sleep, you wake up with a clear, calm mind and a picture-perfect idea of what to do about that problem. This sense of peace and assurance does not come from sleep itself: it is because your subconscious mind was busy visualizing solutions to your problems.

You do not have to wait for sleep to take advantage of visualization. The next time you face a dilemma – be it personal or professional – take some time out to sit in silence and think about your problem. Do not get overwhelmed with thoughts of “I cannot” or “It is too hard”; instead, picture your problem as an obstacle that is easy to leap over or side-step. Replace all negative thoughts with statements like “How do I…”, “How can I…” and “I can do…”. Practice these techniques, and your answers will soon come to you.

Remember, creative visualization can only begin when you are willing to let go of negative thoughts and instead embrace the possibility of a solution!
