Expand Your Brand & Career. Open a Twitter Account.


Some people just have a knack for simplification.  Meet Dan Blank. I just read Dan's post about Twitter and believe that I've found no one better able to define its practical benefit.  

Dan's post caught my attention immediately thanks to his opening line:
In this economy, the single most powerful thing you can do for your:
  • Career
  • Business/Brand
  • Industry
is to connect with others and help your industry connect with each other.

If you don't believe this then you most likely don't have a Twitter account either.  

Too bad.

Dan thinks you should get one.  Right now.  I agree.

If you don't agree then you should at least read Dan's post (click HERE) so you tell him he's wrong.  Better yet, just open a Twitter account and send him a note (@danblank). I'm guessing by the time you read the article the tone of your email will change a bit.  

I hope so. 

Your career and personal brand have high hopes as well.  Don't disappoint them.

Yo Dennis! I'm not sure I can move to Twitter... it's almost like overload!? I watched the CommonCraft video, I get it... but I'm still ramping up on Blogging, much less posts between posts... And really how different is this than the 'status' on FaceBook (for example)? It is seemingly redundant and I already have friends established there...

School me some more, and let's plan lunch soon!

YBIC,
Bill
