So how does someone spread the word about their company, product, or brand on twitter without being too pushy or annoying? I saw a good example this week by @SharelOmer who slyly introduced himself and genuinely interacted with me which got me interested in him and his product.
It all started when I got a shout out mention from one of my favorite social media all stars @TacAnderson. This is where Sharel saw a chance to get noticed by all the people Tac mentioned while congratulating him on his blog post.
I thought that complementing the whole “gang” was a great and subtle way to chime in on a conversation. I made sure to thank Sharel for the mention and after briefly looking at his twitter profile I decided he’d be a good person to follow. I assumed though that he would soon be bombarding me spam tweets. So I was surprised with what he responded back with.
The Follow Up
It was a genuine response instead of an auto-responder and it didn’t include a sales pitch. I was shocked, and it wasn’t until this point that I decided to check out his website Commun.it After I signed up for his program his direct message was sincere in wishing i found it helpful. I definitely learned some tips from @SharelOmer on how i can better engage with those on twitter.
