I found this really great article about using Twitter to find clients and thought I would share it with you. I have to admit I have thought of different ways to use Twitter, but I didn’t think to do a search like this.
Check out the article below and let me know what you think.
Those who pooh-pooh Twitter for business, simply have not taken the time to explore the possibilities or still think it’s only about what you’re doing now. Here’s one method I share with my clients–it’s called the Anyone Know Search (AKS)
Go to Search.Twitter.com and type this in the search box: anyone know [fill in the blank with your profession and location (unless you're national)].
Here’s an example:
This is a Twitter need . Send a tweet or Direct Message to this person. Since you are a fellow Twit, you already have something in common.Â See if it works.
But there’s more to the AKS strategy.
Get the RSS feed for this Twitter search inquiry and you will get an email every time someone tweets they are looking for a Realtor in Portlad (or wherever the heck you are).
Here are some other folks looking for Realtors in other places on Twitter:
So wise up and try using Twitter to help folks looking for you to help them. More Twitter marketing tips coming here soon– so subscribe whydontcha?
