People are asking me the following questions – an awful lot – so I thought I’d write a blog post to redirect everyone to, when these issues come up again. This blog post is directed at new Twitter users who are tweeting about their occupation or business.
How do I get more followers on Twitter?
You must tweet. If you don’t tweet, people won’t know you exist nor what you do. Don’t expect people to approach you in Twitter. It won’t happen. And, when you click to follow people, some people will be put off if there are months between tweets.
Following a request from a group of business people in Omagh, we are holding a seminar in the South West College on 14 June. This seminar has been run several times before, mainly in the Belfast area. Comments are always positive. Here are some recent responses: Continue reading “Social Media Seminar in Omagh”
Here is a presentation I delivered earlier this month. Press the Play button and wait for the presentation to load. Then, press the More button and choose Full Screen. Check Current Events for the latest seminars and workshops.
This session is for anyone who wants to know which social media tools are being used successfully by businesses based in Northern Ireland. It is most suitable those who are aware of social media and in the very early stages of thinking about using it for business.

Social Media gets a sometimes deservedly bad press, for things such as the ability to “throw sheep” on Facebook, for example, which seems an almighty waste of time, for people who’re busy. I agree. So, I’m planning a new public workshop on social media and business. There will be no throwing sheep, or playing games, such as Mafia Wars. If you want to get into all that, great. But, my guess is that most businesses owners and managers don’t have time for games during work.
I want it to be very practical, in that you learn lots during the day and go home with profiles or blogs or whatever already working. Despite the title of this blog (which may become the name of the workshop), I’ve not yet decided what to call it… because I’m not sure what it will be. Continue reading “Beyond Throwing Sheep”
Can Facebook be used for business purposes? For spreading the word about your services? For directing people to your website? For showcasing your talent? For displaying your product features? For dealing with customer queries? What about all your friends mixed in among your business contacts? Won’t they get a little tired of your business stuff mixed up with your personal stuff? Isn’t Facebook only for college students?
