Background - Instructor is Tom Cross - developer of TwitterTutors (http://twittertutors.com) - a MARCOM-marketing-communications provider.  For example, here are the Top-10 business benefits of Twitter and online/onsite TwitterTutors Tips training.   “Twitter is a very exciting social networking, social media and business opportunity for business and all organizations,” noted Tom Cross – CEO.  “We focus our training on key management performance issues such as using Twitter for selling, customer support and communications.”  TwitterTutors Tips is an hour of onsite or online actionable information to help organizations realize the potential of Twitter to reduce the sales cycle, reduce customer support costs, react to customer crises in realtime and overall improve customer satisfaction.  TwitterCheckUP is an eight category analysis of your Twitter account in three levels – Good, Fair and Poor.  TwitterTuneUP is an eight category analysis with a personal written evaluation or written and verbal with Q&A In addition, TwitterTutors Guide to be published in early 2011 will provide an ebook version of the online/onsite training.
Here are our TwitterTutors.com Top-10 Reasons to Twitter for your business, enterprise or organization:
1 – Most important, Twitter is like everything you do, it’s about people.  Search is about finding things.  You search for things, you buy from people.  Even online, you want to make a personal connection with the provider.  Because you want to know “if” you buy something from them, the will “be there” to help you if it doesn’t arrive ontime, is broken, needs repair and maybe get a replacement or new one when the time comes. Twitter is all about social, not search.  Simply search is where people look (browse-search) for you, whereas, Twitter is all about push out ideas, help, commenting to your fans (followers), letting people know about your business and everything else.  Key point is, with Twitter, followers must choose to follow you and can unfollow just as easy.
2 – Upsell – certainly and obviously, you can add “French fries” to your “Happy Meal” product.  Customers don’t just want to buy once, they want to buy more and create a “social relationship” with the companies they buy from.  One great friend Roger Toennis is building a social networking company called Loyal2me.com based all around customer loyalty and how providers can use loyalty to not just gain but retain customers.  In other words, Twitter can help build that “be social, get close” strategy.
3 – Pitchsell – many companies have great “pitchmen” who are in the media “spotlight.”  Not even company liked Carl’s Jr. can hire Paris Hilton to “push” their product but every company can have a Twitter-Talent pitching on their behalf.  Twitter is very democratic, you build followers “one at a time” and they can with two clicks, unfollow you.  If you are boring, not “on target,” not helpful or just waste people’s time with gibberish, then they will unfollow you.
4 – Resell – You can easily test new products or add (resell) other products to your product line quickly and easily.  Since Twitter keeps you in touch with your follows instantly you can let them know what you are thinking and while you only have 140-characters, you can easily push them off to your website, blog or link.
5 - Cross-sell - one of the really creative and frankly, very social aspects of Twitter is “cross-selling.”  Love the name as it’s my name but cross-selling is being so social you help your followers with other ideas.  “You bought those shoes, then this hat, coat, makeup, spa, trip, skincare, iPhone app, car, etc. would go nicely with that.”  Cross-selling is helping your customers be better people and in turn be better, more loyal customers to you.  At TwitterTutors we think by showing you and telling you all we know, we can help you be more successful whether you use/need our help or not.
6 – Follow-up sales – Are you happy with the product you bought or just merely satisfied.  Follow-up is not support, follow-up is about what can I do to help you improve your use, application or train you on the product.
7 – Shorter selling – We have provided tutorials for nearly a decade now proven to reduce the sales cycle.  Twitter gets you “in the game” faster than other means.  In business, you have, other than your product/service, only two principal means to marketing – time and money.  Lady Gaga has been around for seven years but it’s only been a little more than a year that she skyrocketed to success.  It may take that long to get your product/service to market.  If, however, you have a gazillion dollars, you can let everyone know on the planet today what you have.  Twitter gives you a “time warp factor” that can shorter the time to market and the customer sales cycle to purchase the product.
8 – Outselling the competition – if you are not talking (Twittering), they have the “microphone.”  Your competitors will be talking to your prospective or current customers without you even walking in the door.
