Friday Fun Flick - Twitter Parody (Twouble with Twitters)
Enjoy this fun little flick about Twitter. Sorry for the late post but enjoy Friday, over the weekend or even on Monday morning when you get this in your RSS feed. What better way to get your week started.
All jokes aside, as Twitter continues to grow, your credit union can use Twitter as a communication channel to connect and build relationships with members. Here are three quick thoughts about how your credit union can use Twitter as a communication tool.
1. Listen - if you are just getting into Twitter, listen first. Set up an account then sit back and observe the conversation and see how Twitter really works. Like the video above shows, there is a big misconception that Twitter is a waste of time. Twitter has grown to more than just people spouting off random and pointless tweets about their lives.
3. Discover - as you begin to listen to the conversation on Twitter, you will begin to discover new things. Maybe someone is tweeting about an experience at your credit union. You can even discover new and innovative ways that other credit unions are using Twitter to communicate with their members.
2. Engage - just don't jump into Twitter because it is cool and everyone else is doing it. Find your purpose and reason for wanting to use Twitter. I recommend using Twitter as a communication tool and not a marketing tool.
You may feel overwhelmed at first but start slow. I'll be honest that I have laid off Twitter for the past two weeks after Twittering for two straight weeks at credit union conferences. I needed to disconnect and take a break.
However, as I get caught up on the day to day, I will slowly get back into Twittering more again. Feel free to follow along here: www.twitter.com/jrwlay
Shout back and let us know if and how you are using Twitter at your credit union.
