Twitter is one of the biggest social media platforms. But is it good for marketing your product/service? My answer is yes. There is a lot that you can do with Twitter.

Take a day or 2 and post all of that content, and determine which one gets the highest engagement. Post the best of the best on Instagram and then Facebook.

Twitter is a great place to “jab” (courtesy of Gary Vaynerchuk). Jabbing is a fancy way to say “give”. You have to give, give, give before you can ask for the sale. Provide value. That’s what you have to do. I will use my landscaping company example once more. Give some tips and tricks on how your…
