    anyone use twitter ?
  2. If you want to actually generate business and relationships, use LinkedIn.It's made for business and free.
    I've used Twitter, doesn't seem to do a lot of good unless you're Shaquille O'Neal or have a complete internet strategy and get a large following.
    You just need to get your LinkedIn profile to 100%. You can look at my full profile by searching linkedin. (Steve Hoogenakker). If you're in the snow or lawn business, I'll accept your link, just type in that you know me from Showcase Landscape. Look at some of the groups I belong to, like IREM and IFMA, and the Irrigation Association, tons of resources and opportunities.

    I have dozens of property managers in my group, which I can contact anytime and local competitor friends.

    SIMA has a group that you can join, and a few of us in the lawn management business in different cities have been sharing regional and national property management information to help us
    get more business.

    If you want more information on Social Networking, they just did an article in Lawn and Landscape magazine October 2009, page 106, and a great resource is Jeff Korhan's site, www.jeffkorhan.com. Jeff sold his landscape business and has become an expert in this area. He has tons of free information on building your business.
