  • Should I be tweeting alongside Facebook?

    Is it a beneficial way to spread the word about my glass painting? I am a stay at home Mum and can just about keep up with chores, painting my glass commissions and promoting on FB where I sell. Other than reaching new people will I end up duplicating what I do on FB? Very excited to have just got some space in a wonderful childrens gift shop and toying with joining an online shop.

    Today I got turned away from another craft fair because 'we have similar glass people' already. This is glass engravers, totally different skill offering quality timeless pieces, whereas my work is colourful and sometimes quirky. It bugs me because you can be sure there will be more than one jewellery stall lol.

    So today I feel I want to fight my corner and find a new promotional avenue. Came up with Twitter. Any advice for me on how much time to spend, how Twitter works for you?

    Thanks for reading

    hello there my husband Tweets for me, he is the technical one and I make my art. It seems to work though, so I would say yes go ahead, it can't hurt when more people know about you and what you do. Use it as a business tool firstly and then use it to meet others who make in the same genre as you, keep it to the point and that will keep you from that overwhelming feeling that some people get with it.

    As for the craft fair, you need to get out there and educate alongside your selling. Tell people what you do, how you do it and how it makes you feel. I think that almost everyone of us here has had exactly the same thing, others tend to lump you in with anything that they can grasp the concept of at the time.

    Good luck, get Tweeting

      Hi use something like twitter feed as it will send duplicates to twitter, so you can connect facebook, blog and twitter and only write it once!!

        Hi,

        yesterday i singed up for windows live, well no that is a bit of a lie lol cause i was already signed up and i forgot. Anyway my point is that you can import your emails from another account so you don't have to change your email address it brings them into window live for you. You can link window live, twitter, facebook, pintrest, linkedin and many more all to the same account so you only have to post once. I have facebook and twitter some people may use facebook and others twitter some may use both but you have got to be reaching a wider ordiance. Twitter only has a 40 letter space so how long can it actually take u. I would say though don't make it 100% business people like to know about real life as well. If you would like to swape links and follow each other let me know cause that is another way of getting to reach a wider scope of people my followers/friends or people who like my page can then see your stuff as well x x. Good luck have fun .
