Tune in to this podcast in which Elsom Eldridge Jr. interviews Ron Davies. Listen any time you like (it’s a podcast, after all, for your convenience) and learn from a true Twitter Master how you can use Twitter as an uber-marketing tool to help you reach your market. It’s easy. It’s free. It will take you less time than any other social networking tool to learn to use effectively … and most importantly, it will do things that are going to blow you away.
Large businesses, Ron explains, hire people to attract more business, but smaller businesses (such as consultants, coaches, and entrepreneurs) can use the social media networking power of Twitter to build, grow, and expand their businesses. It’s not a hard sell to your market. It’s probably not even a soft sell … good Twittering (aka, tweeting) is about building networks of listeners. And Ron Davies, in remarkably simple terms, teaches you how to make Twitter do things you never knew it could do as you create followers, relationships, and most importantly, LISTENERS.
Why Twitter to Build Your Brand and Share Your Social Media Market?
Why Twitter? …Twitter because who has time to learn all the social media platforms out there? Certainly not today’s hard working, over-working businessperson.
Going beyond that answer, Ron explains that the answer to “why Twitter” also includes the very valid response that Twitter offers you tools other social networking platforms just don’t have.

Surprise Twitter fact #1: In March, Twitter had more content searches than did Google!
Surprise Twitter fact #2: Not only are mainstream media figures like Oprah and Aston Kutcher jumping on the Twitter bandwagon, so are major corporations. Examples of brands you will know that are using Twitter either as the cornerstone of their marketing campaign, or as a major element of their marketing and branding efforts: Land Rover; Hotel Max (also offering coupons via Twitter); Quest Communications (using Twitter for a customer service platform); Vista Print; Digiorno Pizza; DeLL;
Surprise Twitter fact #3: Twitter is being used as a policing tool and a way to enhance community security.
Surprise Twitter fact #4: The tool “Tweet Beep” (www.tweetbeep.com) may be more valuable for monitoring your market than Google Alerts.
Surprise Twitter fact #5: Twitter is not Chat. First of all, good Twitter has meaning; it has content; Chat may not. Secondly, Twitter lives on. Unlike Chat, Twitter is stored on the internet and therefore is read by the search engines.
Surprise Twitter fact #6: Twitter is the number one choice for return on investment of time and money for a social marketing tool, in part because Twitter is so simple to use.
