I just started using twitter and I had 2 calls just yesterday from towns that I have not done work in yet. Coincidence? I don't just send tweets about my company, I also retweet what I think is for my local audience like the local school scores that they tweet or realestate advice or home selling advice etc. Lots of links back to me jut gains more exposure.

Question though?
If you tweet on twitter does that make you a twit?

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Hi Pat,

Do you track where new callers initially heard of you from? That could help you find out which of your marketing is working and which isn't.

How do you go about adding potential customers on your twitter?

Pat, That is great!

Look me up and I will be your follower. Have you started a Facebook yet?

That is my best marketing, besides my card holders. LOL

Default Christian Chirp

I use Christian Chirp which is the Christian alternative to twitter.

Here is my profile there: http://www.christianchirp.com/profil...enginemechanic

If you sign up on Christian Chirp, you can use a program where you can tweet and chirp at the same time, getting twice the coverage!

The first thing I did was a search for my town and started following those tweets. Yes I do track where the calls come from. I don't do much in the way of print (still on a tight budget) but what ever I have done has gotten my rankings up there. Lots of nights up till 2 or 3 am working on the web site.

That is fascinating! I didn't even think of that. Were there a bunch of them or were there only a few?

What's your twitter site so I can add you?

There wasn't a lot but then I searched on realators and home improvement and got lots of them. I then started searching towns around me. I am even following the chamber of commerce and convention and visitors bureau.

I could be wrong, but it might be tough to find people that live around you that aren't businesses.

Maybe you would have better luck with that on facebook or myspace.

But but looking for other businesses in your area is a great idea. Why not include any business that services homeowners? Plumbers, electricians, lawn care businesses etc. I bet there are a lot of them.

Have you also thought about joining the chamber of commerce?
