I couldn't resist with all the offline ____ gold as it is hot and a great way to earn money with our knowledge!
So just wanted to share with everyone a quick Twitter tip to your offline clients.
Heck, it just brought in a quick $1,000 check from an offline client.
For one of my new (just signed him up today!) offline clients, he is a bit in the public eye and yet didn't have his name branded yet online.
1. told him to register his name, firstnamelastname.com and forward the dns servers to my host
2. then uploaded wordpress with all the sexy seo plugins and a nice theme he liked with the option of getting a 'custom' graphic header for $100
3. then asked him if he know about Twitter...he said he has recently been hearing lots about it - heck - even katie Couric is on it and Joel Comm's recent big marketing push on his great book "twitter power" I just happened to have on my desk when he and I met.
4. Then had him 'claim his name' on Twitter - he loved it - and here is the kicker for helping with the offline goldmine - the integration between his personal blog and his Twitter - he was amazed and going to refer plenty of his business friends!
Here is how easy it was (can't believe I haven't done this yet for my own blog!)
Step 1 - downloaded the twitter wordpress plugin - it is FREE - Alex Kings Twitter Tools 1.6 - WordPress › Twitter Tools WordPress Plugins is the download link
uploaded via FTP to the plugin directory - the twitter.php file in twitter tools 1.6
Step 2 - activated the plugin once logged in as admin on the WP blog
Step 3 - went to 'widgets' on the WP theme and added the new 'twiiter tools' widget to the sidebar
Step 4 - went to the twitter tools set up in menu path and while on that one page easy configuration, asked him if he would like each tweets to be individual blog posts, or just his daily tweets to one blog post, or the entire weeks tweets to a blog post...then asked if he wanted any new blog posts to then be micro-blogged on his Twitter account....
... if you can picture yourself now as the offline consultant walking someong thru these questions, you can imagine how much of an authority status you've just put yourself in with your client...the referrals, the additional business...e.g. how about a custom twitter background to match your blog etc.
Just wanted to share that with all of you fellow warriors as I seriously did not know how easy it was to install the Twitter tool 1.6 and how slick it is!
