For me twitter looks completely alien to me. The blog system seems a bit complicated.

I don't get how some twitters have content but no replies, and others have little content and tons of replies making it even more complicated because I can't find the actual content.

Also the # thing kinda throws me off too, what is that thing do? Judging by reading my post you can tell how stupid I am with twitter.

I am preparing a blog post that will hopefully explain the proper business use of Twitter. I will be sure to link it up here when it's ready

Twitter also has an "official" guide that explains some ways to use Twitter for your business here: Twitter 101 for Business ? A Special Guide

myspace has worked for me but i also use twitter and i have not had any sales off of it but i do generate a lot of bonds with others in the business. for instance i built a good friendship with the marketing director of 4 wheel parts which is the largest 4x4 parts store in the country. i now have a link on their page as do they mine all because of twitter. so i would say there are pros and consof them.

I find social mediums are better for showcasing your products. For example, social photo sites are cool places to put up galleries of your tshirts and other merchandise. I do not personally break my back with social media stuff unless it has a specific purpose, like showcasing product galleries.

Hope that helps!

If I'm selling themed bike t-shirts, and I want to start getting people to buy it. I turn to tweeter and facebook. When writing these tweets or wall announcements, do I write stuff around the theme? For example, if I find a nice bike article on a website or a interesting video about a bike race, do I say a couple sentences and post the link where I found it? If I was to start with these sites that's the first thing I would be doing, is this the wrong way?

I learned to use Twitter and Facebook for business watching these videos from lynda.com

Social Media Marketing with Facebook and Twitter

The author gets you through the whole process, from signup, setup and how to manage both networks.

Both are good, if used properly and you dont need to spend your days on them, I usualy spend 30 minutes on each every day, 5-6 days a week.

They have more advanced videos dedicated to either Facebook and Twitter

Well worth the money if you are interested in social networking.

Here's a great article one of our members Q (who's doing pretty well using Twitter to promote his t-shirt business) wrote about 50 ways businesses can interact on Twitter:

That is a great article. About the only tip I don't agree with entirely is the one about tweeting what music you're listening too, but that's a personal preference. I think the list is right on other than that.
