Many people are great at sending tweets, emails, text messages and so on but the best way to take Twitter to the next level is connecting with someone on the phone or in person.
Taking Twitter to the Next Level
Why is it so many people are willing to engage through tweets, emails, texting etc. but hesitate when it comes to meeting someone in person or talking to them on the phone? Even when I call my kids they don’t answer the phone but when I send them a text they get right back to me.
I see people everyday on Twitter engaging with people through tweets but how many of you actually talk to people on the phone that you’re tweeting with. I have engaged with hundreds of people through tweets and when I find a connection with someone I want to build a relationship with I will ask them if I can call them. Tip: Always ask for permission to call someone! This has worked for me every time, you just need to know when the timing is right.
I have talked with dozens of people on the phone that I have met on Twitter. I can get more done and take the relationship to the next level. But it’s much more then that, you can hear what the persons voice sounds like, listen to them laugh, and start building a bond with that person you can’t just can’t do through sending tweets.
If you’re like me, you don’t have all day everyday to spend talking to people on the phone. This is one of the benefits of the 3rd party tools like twellow that integrates with Twitter so you can locate people in your niche. When possible connect with people on a local level and when the timing is right meet them for lunch. Put on a local TweetUp in your area and send out some tweets letting people to know about it.
When meeting with someone or talking to them on the phone for the first time never try to sell them anything. Use this time to learn more about the person and find out what their looking for. People love to buy but hate to be sold, simply provide them with some information to learn more about your product or service.
Book a follow up and never be late for your follow up call or appointment.
