    I started with Facebook, so still don't really get Twitter at all!! -
    Do you use Facebook for business purposes? If so, what are the benefits between the two?

            ^^yeah, I have one too, but just kind of blah about it, really don't get who you follow, what you do, .....how people find you etc...

              Hi Everyone

              For Facebook - yes your business can leverage through it if its properly structured and has level of interactivity built in - its not about making a post over facebook - but the companies who are engaging with their customers via social media is making the most.

              For Twitter - it can work wonders if you manage your CRM with it.

              hope this had helped you.
              Thanks and Regards

                Hi Leigh,
                I started off following a few famous people but they are really quite boring!
                I now look for people that are of interest to me, fellow crafters and businesses and then things for the business like shops on galleries that I think my jewellery may fit into.
                I talk an absolute load of rubbish but I have made some very good genuine friends on it - some of which I have met and others i havent yet.
                I saw a tweet on there a couple of weeks ago saying 'twitter makes me want to have drinks with people I have never met and facebook makes me want to throw drinks over people i already know!'

                  I like that last quote.

                  I think I'm starting to get it. I think. And you're right about most of the 'celebs'. But I'm not giving up Nathan Fillion.

                    I have to admit that I have twitter feeds automatically set via my blog, Etsy Shop and Facebook but I'm not really that active there outside of that and I appreciate that that might be a fail on my part.....i think the trick is to pop in and Tweet some nonsense every now and then to gain extra followers as well as doing active searches....it's all work.....all part of the game!

                      That's kind of helped me figure it out a bit as well. I've had a twitter account for a while, but only really begun to feed into it via my blog recently. I wasn't really sure what to write, I mean if I think celebs are boring who wants to know the details of what I get up to?? So I guess it's more use for business than for anything else - keeping in contact with customers, suppliers, other crafters etc - that I can understand a bit more. Now I just have to remember to log in more frequently!

                        I must admit I do love Twitter. If you engage in a little small talk, reply to people and just chat randomly - and throw in a few business links *occasionally* - it does seem to bring in business.

                        I think it's a bit along the lines of people like to buy stuff from people they have a connection with. Also, they like to make life easy. While someone who tweets only about their business boring, when someone tweets about something that you might be thinking of buying, clicking that link is easy.

                        If you start off by finding people to follow - people who you think you might have something in common with, or people you admire, your followers list will just start growing and then it starts becoming more meaningful.

                        Then it's fab when customers start following you and tweet about what they've bought!

                        Tweetdeck is an excellent way of keeping up with it all, including mentions and favourite hashtags.

                          What does CRM stand for?
