@Tweeting (touting) for business

Whether or not you tweet, Twitter is an online phenomenon all business people need to be clued up about – especially in the world of commerce where you're judged on your expertise. So, here's a useful little diagram that should get you right to the top of the Twitter learning curve – and in next to no time...

What is a Podcast?

A podcast, or podcasting, refers to the activity in which people create a series of digital media files and broadcast it online though internet streaming or by making it available for easy download as an audio file.

The majority of blogs cover a specific category such as Gadgets. Generally speaking a blog is made up of text, images, video content and links to other blogs, related websites.

If you have the default Twitter profile photo, you are immediately identified as a newbie and people may suspect that your account is a bot account. Some people on Twitter do not even follow you without a profile picture. Photos are more memorable and engaging but you can use your business logo if you prefer: I do to keep my business account and personal account separate.

Sounds fantastic, doesn’t it? It did to me.
