@amyhallbiz – The conversation aspect is often overlooked and is an important part. I can see you know this already.
See, if you make it ALL about business, you are not interacting as a PERSON. You can tweet some of your activities to attract followers who then may be in a position to spread the word about you and your services.
For instance: I am a web developer however, I tweet recipes from time to time as I also run a blog for Prairieland Food. I love sewing and stitching crafts and am also a beading hobbyist so sometimes tweet about some items in those genres. I have authors in my family (I also do copywriting) so follow and am followed by literally hundreds of authors so I help those folks out by re-tweeting and noting the books I like.
It’s a MIX of information. If you keep it strictly business, your audience will not know YOU – and that’s what makes it “conversational.”
Most important thing to learn I believe is how to use hashtags from both ends. In your tweets and to find information in search. Once you see the power of hashtags you’ll have one of the best twitter functions figured out.
