Short Sweet Why Tweet Materia Marketer

 

Twitter.

Do you or don’t you?

If you are already a keen tweeter, this week we’ll be preaching to the converted.

If you aren’t – well, we’re going to try and persuade you. But don’t worry, we know it’s a busy time of year, so we’re going to ask you to just do one thing:

Do some research.

We have all heard about the homeopathy sceptics and ‘trolls’ that lurk around Twitter. Well, in our opinion, they are not worth bothering with, but that doesn’t mean that we should avoid or disregard Twitter wholesale.

This week, we are asking you just one question – where do you find your news about homeopathy?

Do you read a magazine or journal? Do you belong to an email list, Facebook page or group that keeps you up-to-date? Or is there another place you go to find out what’s hot in the world of homeopathy?

Well, for Tracy, her go-to place is Twitter. It took her a while to find her way around it, and you won’t find her there every day, but she goes there when she has a spare five minutes, and the main reason she does that is for homeopathy news.

If you are not familiar with Twitter already, just Google it. You don’t have to have an account on Twitter to do a search. This morning, Tracy’s search on Twitter for homeopathy news found her on Dana Ullman’s Twitter feed, and a link to some recently published research on the use of homeopathy to treat Thyroid Dysfunction in Children. Have a look at the link for yourself. It makes positive reading. Isn’t this the kind of information you would like to be sharing with your clients?

Now you see why Twitter is Tracy’s number one place to find homeopathy news!

 

There are other reasons to be on Twitter. Here are some of our favourites:

  1. You quickly link up with many other like-minded people around the world, who you might not otherwise have access to.
  2. You hear news from around the world.
  3. You can share your own news, events, photos.
  4. Other people will see them, and maybe tweet them to their followers (retweeting).
  5. Sharing links from your website on your Twitter account can help drive more traffic to your site which, can help to bring up its ranking
  6. Your potential clients will look at your tweets and it helps them to ‘round out’ their view of you.

 

So there you are, this week it’s short and sweet. Go take a peek. We have more ideas for helping you get started on Twitter in 2015.

Watch this space for something very jolly next week,

Tracy and Lulu
