I'm constantly amazed at how under-appreciated Twitter is as a relationship-building platform.
At Social Media Marketing World 2018 in San Diego, I earned the title of the event's No. 1 Twitter influencer. This distinction comes with no crown, no official prize, and no substantive fanfare – but I can assure you there is plenty of residual value to be had from that experience.
We all know that social media can be an extraordinary time-suck. Heck, I still spend way too much time sitting around watching Instagram Stories content, Snapchat stories, etc. …
But social media at its best – and especially Twitter – gives us an unprecedented opportunity to connect with the people that we need the most – whether it's prospective clients, successful industry leaders, conference organizers, or even just those with whom we share a passion and/or emotional connection.
All the answers are right there in front of you – and this document is going to walk you through exactly how I've mastered it.
