Why businesses should use Twitter

Earlier today I came across a Tweet asking why businesses should use Twitter. As I thought about it, I could come up with countless ways that I see it as beneficial, bot only for my sake with my company, but also for businesses of all sizes.

I also was asked a few weeks ago as to how using Twitter could be beneficial for my company. The obvious first question posed to me was Can we make money off it? Which was quickly followed up with Can this be automated?

While I had answers to the later questions, I was stuck verbalizing how it could be beneficial. As a PR guy, this should have been easy, but I found it useful to show the positive interactions that I had with our customers, and also showed a way to bring in some money and even better vibes among our customers.

Back to the tweet, the previously mentioned query linked back to a post on HighTalk titled Why Twitter? A Here’s Why Guide for Business. Not only does the article give some great reasons for using Twitter, but also has an embedded PowerPoint from Highland Communications on the uses of Twitter for business.

If only I had this a few weeks ago ~ hopefully it can help some of you if you have to answer the question for your bosses.
