Shining Your Light On Twitter

You may have noticed that Twitter is relentless – both in noise and speed.

As a small business it is hard to see how you will ever get noticed!

But there is a tool that can really help but many overlook … When used correctly Twitter hashtags are a great way to market your business.

Hashtags make it easier to network, to promote your brand and business, to share your content, to recruit the right people, and to learn and develop your business skills.

Tweets with hashtags get double the engagement compared to those without. And what’s more, if you start using them properly you’ll see your Twitter engagement soar and your social media traffic increase.

Here are just a few of my favourites …
