Invite your friends!
Please tweet the other shops in the tree. The more people that are tweeting, the more exposure for all!
Speaking of exposure. Did you know that you are creating back links to your items by posting in the twitter tree. You get a link from the blog and you also get back links when someone tweet, FB, Google+, RebelMouse, and uses other social media to promote your items. The more back links you get, the more relevant  your items are to Google.   Something to keep in mind.

    For quality woodworking: http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/studio/trochewooddesigns #artfire #retwt

  13. Everyone has been tweeted/scheduled for morning tweets. Will be back later to set up afternoon and evening tweets and to check for any new people.

  14. Boy there are some early birds here. Why do some use the @sign rather than #. I know I am slow at learning and behind the curve so to speak. Here are my two.

    Nothing but pure whipped shea http://www.zibbet.com/botanicalsforbeauty/artwork?artworkId=924717

    Sweet scent of roses http://www.zibbet.com/botanicalsforbeauty/artwork?artworkId=898445

    only use the #retwt tag, I don't need any others at this point in time. Now off to tweet the above.

  15. Laura

    The @ sign creates a mention to you. The # is a hashtag to group similar topics.

    Tweeted and scheduled all.


  16. Tweeted some and scheduled the rest so far through out the day. I'll be back around 2 pm to see if there are any more.

    Please bear with me as I learn and if you don't see some of the tweets please let me know cause it will help me learn.

    Can someone tell me why some of the links say @so and so? Because I am confused if that is part of the link or not, which if it isn't then I messed up. I am learning to use Hootsuite.

  17. I have tweeted thru Laura's

    Thanks for fixing Tom's links for me. Someone was trying to hurry up :-)


  18. The morning tweets have gone out. Have scheduled the afternoon/evening ones. Have a great Wednesday!

  19. I hope some more people join a little later. I will check back again around 7pm ET.

  20. Laura - you should be able to copy the whole tweet as each person listed it. Some people like the @ because it lets them know what is being tweeted to them. Some people don't include the @ because they don't want all the emails flooding their inboxes.

    Hope that explained it :)

  21. First Light Glass have you used Hoot suite, it has a field for the message and a separate one to put the url in and that's the confusion.


    I hope I didn't mess up too much. also I thought the #retwt was the way for us to find if our items were tweeted or not. I really don't know how to find tweets by hash tag.

  22. Just check my tweets and yep I really messed up, promise to redo everyone tomorrow. Just too tired tonight.
