My copy of Twitter Power: How to Dominate Your Market One Tweet at a Time, by Joel Comm arrived yesterday afternoon and I couldn't put it down last night. I've been Twittering for over a year and I know the basics. I know the fundamentals of tweeting and retweeting, Twitter etiquette and how to customize by Twitter page (I'm ted_prodromou if you want to follow me). I know there are a ton of Twitter tools that make my Twitter life easier and new Twitter sub-communities poping up everywhere.
Joel's book didn't teach me anything I didn't already know because I'm a techie and I spend at least 10 hours a day online working and playing. I discovered everything I know over a year and a half through trial and error. As I came across new tools and resources I bookmarked them and i use many of the tools today.
I love Twitter Power because Joel created the ultimate A to Z guide for all Twitter users. Whether you are an absolute beginner or you're a savvy tweeter, this book is for you. As a beginner, you are led step by step from setting up your account to making your first tweet. You'll learn how to create a profile that attracts followers, how to follow others, how to customize your Twitter background and proper Twitter etiquette so you don't offend people.
For the more advanced user, you'll learn how to do market research using Twitter and how to tap into conversations about your product or service. You'll see how major corporations are using Twitter to connect with their prospects and clients to build lasting relationships. Some major companies are even doing free tech support using Twitter. I guarantee you'll learn a ton of valuable tips that will enhance your Twitter experience exponentially.
You'll also learn about the vast array of 3rd party Twitter tools and communities that make Twitter even more powerful. Joel's compiled a comprehensive list of Twitter tools and resources so you have everthing you ever wanted to know about Twitter at your fingertips.
I highly recommend grabbing your copy of Twitter Power: How to Dominate Your Market One Tweet at a Time today.
