Five Fun and Fabulous Twitter Tools for Small Businesses

November 16, 2009

The number of third-party Twitter Apps has exploded over the last year. Twtbase currently lists over 500 of them, and I have highlighted five of my favorites for small businesses:

1) TwtQpon: TwtQpon is an online coupon creator that helps you to create and distribute coupons on Twitter, Facebook and other social media sites.

2) Twilk: Twilk allows you to create a Twitter collage of your Followers that you can upload as a new background to your Twitter profile.

3) Trottr: Trottr allows you to record brief audio messages with your cell phone that are then hosted on the Trottr Web site. After you record a message, you are given a URL for the message that you can post on Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, etc. It’s a unique way to offer special promotions and occasional Tweet Outs.

4) BubbleTweet: BubbleTweet allows you to embed a video directly on your Twitter profile. It can be very annoying to go to a website that starts talking at you [even worse, plays music], so use BubbleTweet sparingly. Perhaps to post a holiday message or announce a new line of products?

5) TwitPay: TwitPay allows small businesses to accept micropayments from individuals on Twitter. Both the business and the individual needs to have a PayPal account.

In my webinar covering Facebook  and Twitter, I cover all five of these tools, as well as 10 others that are useful to small businesses. Tweeting and ReTweeting is powerful in and of itself (that’s been my experience), but using some of these third party tools can really transform your Twitter strategy!
