19 Aug – Is Twitter for Trades?

Well, I am loving this experiment so far and what an interesting day!

Stats: Tweets=19, Following=184, Followers=49, Mentions=8, Reach 474 (Twitter Analyzer showed our Reach yesterday as 3112)  Blog Hits = 30 

Even though I feel like Briget Jones writing these stats every day and that the phone has not yet rung as a direct result of twitter, we are extremely happy with the levels of interaction and communication with our local community. 

Having a direct message today from someone up the road from us saying “Hi Tim and Max. Welcome to twitter. Great to see a trade firm using it.”  is very encouraging and supportive for us.  Thanks also to the people who have tweeted links to our blog.

Huge highlight today is that our blog has been viewed 30 times!  This might be teeny to some of you guys on twitter but for a tradesperson to get that many hits of people viewing info on our company, pictures of our work, services we offer, testimonials from customers,  is great!  Even the most boring page on our blog was viewed (FAQ)

We also had one referral to our blog from dailyrt.com which we didn’t recognise and had to look it up and apparently this is ”The most popular tweets on the web”. 

Apart from tweeting a lot today in general chit chat terms, we also sent out a link to our Offer exclusive to Twitter, a link to work done yesterday with pictures, and a twitpic of us working last week on a ceiling.

We have continued to follow other peoples followers, used saved searches, viewed # tags and wefollow.

Thanks everyone and looking forward to tweeting tomorrow.  If you come across anyone in Huntingdon or Cambridgeshire then feel free to tell them our twitter id is @floatld :)

In the meantime if you have a leaking loo, or want your ceilings skimmed, or your bathroom refitted, you know where we are :)

Regards, Tim and Max

PS – Oh, and since you are reading our blog… you may aswell comment now that you are here :) Any feedback and comments welcome.
