A little social media training

Just spent a great hour going over the basics of Twitter for our good friends at Tikk’s Thai Kitchen, @TikksThai.

Starting out on Twitter can be a little daunting – learning about hashtags, handles, messaging and how to start generating followers. Our advice followed:

  • What do you want to use Twitter for?
  • Who is the audience?
  • What is a Twitter handle?
  • What is a hashtag and how do you use them?
  • What and when should you Tweet?
  • How do you get noticed?
  • How do you reach influencers?
  • How do you know if it is working – measuring success?

Not bad in an hour – all finished off with a sample of the new Pad Thai recipe – excellent!

And somehow we seem to have volunteered to help out in the van at an upcoming festival – Craftworks in York, 29 April–2 May at the York Railway Institute. See you there?
