Twitter Like You Mean It: The Right Way to Tweet Your Brand
November 13

A Note to Readers
from Ann Handley
Chief Content Officer

Twitter Like You Mean It: Please Join Us!

You've likely been hearing a lot about Twitter these days. Maybe you heard about how CNN started reading users 140-character "tweets" over the air or The New York Times featured the service in a front-page story. Or maybe you heard about Twitter in the context of last week's election.


But an even bigger story is how some companies like Comcast, Dell, Zappos, and more -- are using it as a form of customer service.

This Thursday's 90-minute MarketingProfs seminar, Twitter Like You Mean It: The Right Way to Tweet Your Brand, will teach you best practices for using Twitter for your business. It'll show you everything from nuts and bolts techniques like how to set up an account and how to choose an appropriate user name, to how frequently to Twitter and what topics to cover.

The seminar is led by Alan Wolk, a blogger at his own blog as well as the MarketingProfs Daily Fix, who is, interestingly, one of the few Web 2.0 gurus with a traditional advertising background.

If you are curious about Twitter, or just want to know how to use it more effectively in your business, join me this week at Alan's seminar.

BTW -- if you are already on Twitter, follow Alan at, follow me at, and follow seminar Mission Control, Shelley Ryan, at

Hope to see you Thursday! (And on Twitter, too!)
