| Secret Art of Tweeting |
What is the secret art of tweeting? Every brand wants to get noticed by the little turquoise canary that sings, chirps and tweedles words and abbreviations like; Retweet (RT), handle, #hastag, Lists, IMHO, #FF, Tweep, Twitterat and even Twitterverse. The Secret Art of tweeting is learned through the experience of discovering your audience similar to the practice where fermented grapes ultimately become the fragrance of a fine wine.
“With the proper birdseed the turquoise canary can sing a new song specific to standing out, creating new relationships and growth.”
For us to understand this process we must become the process. For example, how we discover the character of our audience, stand out and become the human compass that shares your brands magical story. This is learned like the elegant process of creating a fine wine.
“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.” ~ Hellen Keller
Businesses invest a tremendous amount of money for their brands to stand out, yet fail to create the character that engage with their audience and influencers of their brand on their social channels. Your brands audience should be a carefully planned network and built community created by an excellent strategy. Turning your community into relationships you will need to take action by engaging with them by listening and learning from their digital presence. Look at your audiance directly in the eye digitally. Ted Rubin wrote, “How to look people in the eye digitally”
When we are real and engage with our community, we build trust. Trust builds value.
“Trust is the foundation of new beginnings.” ~ pBs #socialbrandconnector
