I have been trying to grow my lampwork bead business so in February I decided to do my Bead giveaway. I signed up several months ago for a Twitter account. I looked around, sent a couple tweets and then was done with it. I thought, this is not for me, I don't get it, etc. But how was I going to get the word out about my giveaway? So..... I tried Twitter again. Well it has been about a month now and I am so happy I gave it another chance! I have meet such wonderful, talented, nice people. Most are so helpful and generous with their support and knowledge. I was able to give 12 people some of my beads and many have send me pictures of their wonderful creations using my beads. I could not have been happier and will do it again!
I am selling my beads on Etsy and have found a great community of artisans that use Twitter also. called World Wide Etsy Sellers. Please visit http://www.worldwideetsysellers.blogspot.com/ to see about this group of artists!
Now I am getting traffic to my Facebook Fan Page also! More to come on that.
I am so thankful for having the opportunity to associate with a group of like minded people who are up beat, funny, supportive, creative and above all talented. So if anyone out there is not on Twitter, I strongly suggest you try it. It isn't for everyone but it definitely for me.
Thanks to all of you out there in Twitterland!
