Chinese philosopher believes in the concept of yin-yang which means “shadow and light”. The concept discusses about the natural balance of the world, that shadow can’t exist without light which means that for every positive there is a negative.
I’ve been using twitter for over 3 and a half years now..
Looking back and reminiscing at the “old times”, I’ve seen how much Twitter had changed and how it had helped to propel me in business.
I can’t help but to look back and think what I would have done differently if Twitter somehow loses all of their data and I had to start it all over again.
This is one of my posts originally published on iStrategy Conference, for more original post, head to their blog.
Brands and businesses use Twitter to gain visibility, brand awareness, increase sales, and ultimately drive traffic to their blog or website.
To do this, brands must first think of how to make their tweets visible to their audience.
One important factor to consider when it comes to tweeting is timing. To increase the Click-Through-Rate (CTR) of your articles or links, you need to be tweeting at the optimal time and not when people are asleep or having a busy day at work.

Can you imagine that just a few years ago Twitter didn’t exist (I won’t “exist” too)? Today the phrase “follow us” or ”follow me” is commonly used everywhere – on the news, radio, on ads and more.

Gary is not only the founder of a VERY successful show on the web (Wine Library tv) but he is also the author of Crush It and Thank you Economy (one of my favourite books). If you’ve heard of him you’ll probably also know that he’ll buy the NY Jets one day!
When I first saw him on Youtube, he immediately caught my attention. I like how genuinely passionate he is, and not only is he exceptional in what he does, but his honesty meant that his gutsy attitude and personality might have made some people upset. But does he care? Nope. Not one bit.
Float like butterfly, sting like a bee!
Are you ready to rummmmbleeeeee? On one corner we have Seth Godin, on the other corner we have Guy Kawasaki.
If you don’t know who they are, you’ve probably been living in a cave or you just got out of prison.

Using Twitter professionally for the past 3 years, I’ve seen my share of contests that were organized by both the bigger brands and smaller businesses.In fact, if you were to search with the phrase ‘RT to win’ on Twitter, you’ll find many interesting contests being held on a daily basis.
A Twitter contest is not only a great way to build buzz and increase brand engagement, but it also generates new followers and grows your brand presence.
There are even some who would suggest that Twitter contests are more effective at building engagement than any other online (paid) investments.
Clearly then, as Twitter grows its influence in social media, so too would the importance of Twitter contests.
There are several different types of Twitter contests. [Read more...]
