View Full Version : Twitter advertising idea

05-21-2008, 04:43 AM
For those who don't know twitter is like a (micro)blog but you post through text msgs on your cell phone. I can embed this blog in the side bar of my website. What I was thinking of doing is using twitter to update my availability or offer incentives.

For example I would post- "On job in TOWNNAME, next opening 2pm, call to schedule!" or I could offer reduced rates, my rates go by distance....so if I'm working 30 miles away and charging $75/hr. I can post something like "working in the TOWN area, if your live near by call in the next 30mins and get 20% off"

What do you guys think?

Thats actually a pretty good idea. I like it! Would be great to use during quiet parts of the day.

Good idea... downside is you only get the people that are on your website at the time. How many uniques are you getting a day?
There's another service that you might like called pinger:
Add all your customers in and then when you are in their area you can send out a voicemail blast with your "Hey I'm in your area... if you call by X:00xm I can give you a X% discount"

Sort of an immediate and free telemarketing.
