Technology. Automation. Twitterbots. Have you ever awakened one morning, only to find out that you have made that all important milestone in your life, linking yourself to Guru status? Well, this is how this very thing happened to me. It was that moment that my sister, a Northwestern University graduate, never had time to explore how to make her presence successful on social media. I built her very cumbersome and highly invigoratingly successful website for her candy store back in 2012, only to realize that we both wanted to see her candy store grow even further. Then comes forth Chase Bank and its attempts in re-establishing its universal likability while contributing to small businesses in re-stating its claim for not just a Big Bank. I awakened to the early morning challenge. It was a Sunday morning just like this one. (Btw, her first international order came from a Japanese business traveler who had already been to the states and was online surfing for great belgian chocolates in Chicago, since the receiving party already resided in the Windy City. My sister's site was beautiful, but since replaced when my sister launched her belgian KC Chocolates Candy Store in the Lakeview area of Chicago in 2012. (she sells strictly in-house, and the current generic site isn't my design).
Let me say right off, (look at the impressions on the right). Many of my friends did not even respond to my post, however, their friends-of-friend whom reside in the ethervilles of the unknown cyberspace, made the connection for me. (I'll never know who voted for my sister's little candy store. But I imagine it was a bunch of really cool people placed under the Twitter spell of reaching out in the spirit of crowd funding. To all of the unknown voters: my sincere Thank-you! It was a resoundingly successful kickstarter campaign!
It's was a beautiful summer Sunday morning in southern Nevada, a place that is currently my sultan paradise with it's green palm trees, brown mammoth mountains, and indigenous blue skies. I should be out hiking right now, but it's hitting me, (right now), that I'm a maven, a true Twitter Guru. This is my kind of usual weekend morning, with fresh buttery croissants and hot Italian coffee, (but I thought), why not share about this potential Twitter empire that I'm building? Hey, why not? I mean, I just got through reading a fabulous Twitter article on blogging for Twitter, by the Traveling Circus, here. It's a really fab article, and I certainly recommend it for making that turn from a run of the mill Twitter account, to operating and celebrating your new Twitter universe! At the very least you should be building your little bit of island paradise. By the weigh, I just finished my June 1st blog post about Tin Lizzie's adventure 300 miles up the straights of Mackinac. Catch it here.
I opened my first Twitter account in September 2011, as it is so proudly displayed on my Twitter site, and then I subsequently opened another Twitter account like just one month later. Why? I suddenly realized the Power of Twitter, of which I always heard to be the case, and boy, was it astoundingly true! Firstly, I discovered the power of Twitter when I'd simply Google my blog name, and discovered that not only was my blog name high in the SEO rankings, but it was the gosh darn Twitter that was actually helping the rankings of my blog! Site name: ESL Carnival Academy. By the weigh, this was all free! I didn't have to pay some SEO giant in India to help me, I did it by myself. Now, this article is about Twitter, but I'm purposely telling you how I did it, so that you can get it done too. But aside from even that, at current I'm blogging for my sister using Twitter right at this very moment. You've heard of Kickstarter and the other online campaigns that one can run to Help Fund Me, towards a way of exploiting a great enterpreheur idea that pays for the idea through the support of people who believe in you? There are a few really great campaign sites out there, but of all suspects, my sister found Chase Bank to be sponsoring a campaign to help small business owners with business grants. Ironically, Chase Bank is working with Facebook with this one though, I mean you have to physically log into your facebook account in order to cast you vote for your favorite small business shoppe in Chicago. Facebook it is, but it's Twitter that is allowing for my sister's votes to climax the great social media vote tally.
As far as accumulating followers, no need. I strictly enjoy the nomadic life, which extends taking many unconventional routes. So, I decided to go with Round Team almost a year ago. Round Team is, by far the best in retweet automation. All I had to do was to take ten minutes on their site, open an account, link both my Twitter accounts, and insert my favorite Twitter lists. The impeccible social media giant blast out retweets from my favorite #travel and #ttot lists using their renouned twitbot. Ahh, life cannot be simpler, laying back by the pool on this Sunday, and allowing for the power of Round Team and Twitter to create my little piece of paradise in the sky. Now, you can befriend all of those buy instant followers if you like, and I respect the Traveling Circus for going this route. But, at current , I'm very close in reaching the number that my sister needs to help expand her business via the Chase grant, but even more developing, I'm establishing myself into the dynamic world of Twitter Guruism.
