How to Get Started on Facebook & Twitter

Yesterday I hosted an ANLA webinar Beginners Getting Started on Facebook & Twitter for 135 people. It was a huge challenge to condense the information on both of these 500 pound gorillas into an hour, but with the help of Amanda Flynn's great moderating and our Queen Beekeeper Tracey Brown's coaching, we managed to cram a lot in in a little over an hour.

Just check out these stats: Facebook now has an astounding 400 million users. People are tweeting 50 million times a day.

Just check out the stats on Updates/Posts
•Facebook status updates: 700 per second
•Twitter tweets: 600 per second
•Buzz posts: 55 per second

If you have any great ideas of how to use Facebook or Twitter to Grow Your Business, would love to hear from you and include your success story in our presentation.
Our favorite garden center promotion we ran across came from Grossman Garden in Penfield, N.Y. They are hosting a "You Sow 'em! We'll grow 'em!" event.

We will be doing a follow up webinar, and I'll be doing a 3-day work shop at P.A.N.T.S. in July.
Have a great weekend everyone!
