Week 4 – Tweet, tweet, tweet

Hello All

Since establishing Clearwater VA I have attended many networking events and technical seminars.  Some have been enlightening, some have been tedious but many of them have had a similar theme – social media.

From the outset of my business venture I have embraced one area of Social Media in particular; LinkedIn.  For me this has been a valuable resource and one that is proving highly beneficial for building up a strong network of business professionals (I would be happy to Link-Up with any of my fellow VA’s).  However, I have struggled to understand and appreciate the benefits of other similar tools.

Having come from a Marketing background this may seem strange to some.  However, as some of the key services I provide revolve around traditional marketing methods, I have always wanted to remain at the forefront of best practice by focusing on what I know, ensuring that I can deliver this well and to a high standard.  So adopting new approaches and new methods is something that I consider very carefully.

Having recently attended an excellent Business Scene Event in Swindon, delivered by Warren Cass, I have finally been convinced that twitter could be beneficial.  I cannot see me tweeting about what I had for tea or how many beers I drank at the weekend, however I will certainly be looking to tweet as and when I feel the subject could be beneficial from a business and general awareness perspective to others.

So finally for any fellow VA who is well established or just starting their twitter journey lets help each other and tweet, tweet, tweet.

Have a good week

Mark
