What a fun night last night! nearly 50 Wilmington residents assembled at Howe Creek offices near Mayfair to listen to some top notch Twitter advice. For a new twist, we also streamed the Meetup in live broadcast using UStream.tv, and had 10 people watching live from various parts of North Carolina, including Colorado!
Our focus on this Twitter MeetUp was to field questions from the audience people had about Twitter, then our stellar panel answered them.
Questions ranged from “Why use Twitter”, “Using Twitter for business” and “What are your favorite applications for Twitter." Some applications discussed last night included Twollo, Tweet Deck, twhirl, and Twitter grader. Do you have a favorite Twitter application? We want to hear, please leave it in a comment below!
One other neat announcement was Shannan Bowen telling us about the Star News launching a new section of their site listing their Twitter users, and local “tweeps”, here it is: http://www.starnewsonline.com/section/news41
Special thanks to our panelists Bruce Brown of Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Realty, Steve Harrell of Sophic, Shannan Bowen of the Wilmington Star News, and William Lang of Port City Color Copy handled the Ustream PC and fielded questions that came in via the Internet. Oh, I was there of course, Ty Downing with Perspective Internet Marketing and SayItSocial.
Hot off the Google press. They announced today that they will offer a online courses to people, and thus can become “Qualified.” At first glance this is very similar to their Google Adwords course. Looking forward to taking this..wait, is this going to cost $50 also??

Some of you out there are already experienced writers, and employ great SEO techniques within your articles, so these tips will just help emphasize the need to continue, or may be new thoughts. Oh, I also assume you are using Wordpress…..I “Heart” WP…
Obviously these are just guidelines, you can adjust to them as you wish, but I have found great success with my clients with these power points!
Do you have some additional tips? I and our readers would love to hear them, please leave a comment with your tips!
Content writing tips
- 300-400 word posts.
- Apply 2-3% keyword density level (For every 100 words, use key phrases 2 -3 times)
- Hyper-link keywords/phrases (Anchor text) and then link them to pages in main site (if you have one), or other blog posts, including deep level pages. Try to avoid if at all possible hyper-linking the phrase “Click Here” but rather use targeted words, and underline them in your post, people accept the underline as a linked word.
