@drew-sager I love this discussion because as someone with clients who is also trying to run my own business, I deal with this alot. I completely agree with @kc_kreative about the kind of content that works well on each platform being different, and taking that into account when you do your status updates/posting, etc.
For example, I have a photographer client who posts her images and more “businessy” content on her FB page, and uses her Twitter account to give a more behind-the-scenes personal look into her daily life as a Mom of a 4-year-old who has to run around doing location shoots all day with her child in tow. People have responded really well to this, and even though the Twitter updates are more personal “a day in the life” type stuff, it does generate client inquiries about her photo work.
On the other hand, I manage social media for a realtor where the bulk of our attention is on Facebook, and we’ve just been letting the FB updates autofeed to Twitter — not good. In the next few weeks I’ll be figuring out our Twitter strategy and coming up with some ideas for content for Twitter that is more Twitter-friendly.
This is a good discussion, it’s great to see what other people are doing to distinguish FB content from Twitter content — very helpful!
