So you've signed up to Twitter, or maybe you've been using it for a while.
You have a handful of followers and you follow a bunch of people
How can you really make it work for you?

You see, Twitter is a soft way of getting yourself noticed.
The key to the success of this strategy is what you post, your voice.
So what do you post?
REGULARLY...not once a week or month when you have something interesting to say.
Several times a day.
Not all at once, set yourself a shedule.
A tool like Buffer is great for this.
That way you aren't chained to Twitter.
You take a little time to work things out then leave the software to work in the background for you.
Now, watch your business grow.
