I absolutely love Twitter!
In fact, I won $500 by using Twitter!!!
More on that in just a second.....
Recently my son went into the hospital to have emergency surgery. I posted live updates on Twitter for family and friends.
But something else magical happened.
All of these social networking angels came out of the woodwork and provided me with strength, love, prayers, and support. It was truly amazing!
The first night we were in the hospital, I posted how the nurses kept waking us up and needing sleep. I felt all alone in that hospital room watching my baby hurting. I was tired and cranky. But my Twitter angels sent me the funniest messages and made me have a wonderful giggle just when I needed it most.
Twitter has also helped my business!
I was on a phone call with a potential customer over the weekend. They were asking questions about our services and then they said to me,
I was already planning on using you before I called. I have been following your blog and Twitter for some time now and I already feel like I know you and I can trust you.
WOW! That is fantastic.
I love that people feel that way. Especially when I have shared so much of my life online, from divorce to my baby in the hospital! But to be honest, I wasn't sharing my life to get more sales (although that is a nice benefit).... I was sharing my life so that maybe one person who was going through the same thing did not feel quite so alone. When I left an abusive ex husband and became successful... I wanted to share my life so I could help at least one woman leave and know that life will be ok.
I am currently writing an ebook on how you can use Twitter to help your online store get new customers, but in the meantime....
I wanted to tell you how I won $500 on Twitter and maybe this will be the extra incentive you need to get on Twitter too!!
Izea and Kmart held a contest giving away a total of $3,000 in Kmart Gift Cards. One of the ways to enter the contest was by posting a message in Twitter.
So I did.
And I won!
Now that is 500 reasons to start using Twitter today!
Oh and if you haven't heard of Izea, they have some pretty cool stuff going on that I am going to be posting about in the new few days, including their Social Spark and PayPerPost
Just to give you a general idea, you can use these two programs to pay bloggers to write about your products or website. You can also go onto these sites and earn extra income writing about products and services on your blog. It's a pretty neat idea!
By the way, when you sign up for Twitter....
Please follow me and I will follow you. This is how we communicate to each other and learn more about each other.
