Does your social media marketing depend on Twitter?

Over the past couple of days, Twitter’s been down most times I’ve tried to use the service.

Others are frustrated too:

Twitter: Something Is Technically Wrong reports:

“I’ve mostly stopped bothering to post when Twitter is down like it is now and like it was yesterday (honestly, it’s news when they keep the site live for 24 hours at this point). But, seriously, they need to get their act together. It’s past embarrassing.”

If you’ve dived into social media marketing (SMM), perhaps it’s time to start looking for Twitter alternatives, but of the alternatives I’ve tried, they suffer from as much downtime as Twitter does.

Social marketing on Twitter – make friends, get business

Are you using Twitter to market your business? I hung back from using Twitter, as I know many other online marketers did, because I couldn’t see the sense of it at first.

Then I got wise… :-)

MarketingSherpa: Get Famous Using Twitter to Market Your Company & Yourself reports on Twitter’s uses:

“Companies use Twitter to post:

o News announcements
o Links to press releases
o Links to special deals, programs, promotions
o Links to blog posts
o Links to videos, podcasts
o Messages to Twitter community
o Survey questions to Twitter community
o Requests for feedback on website redesigns and beta sites”

I use Twitter to post links to the many blog posts and articles I write each day, as well as to tools and services I want to remember. Twitter offers instant updates, so you can get immediate feedback on anything you post to the site.

Try Twitter for at least a month, and see what results you get. Twitter may become one of your favorite marketing tools.
