While the creators of Twitter may be wondering still how to actually make any money from their platform, big business can see dollar signs already! According to the article Tweets For Hire! More Big Businesses Hire Tweeters:Multinational corporations, such as Ford Motor Co. and Coca-Cola Co., are beginning to use social media to increase positive sentiment, build customer rapport and correct misinformation, says Adam Brown, Coca-Cola’s Atlanta-based director of social media.
Unlike Twitter, these firms already have mechanisms in place to make money. They just need a way to connect with their existing clientele, build rapport, and give their brand some “persona”.
Smart companies also use it to respond quickly to customer ideas and complaints by searching Twitter for mentions of their names or products. Even Washington DC monitors Twitter to see how much they can get away with unawares. Despots in Iran hated it so much they tries to shut down access to it of course.
Can you engage people on Twitter? It may allow you to create your next work at home business opportunity!
