I've recently had the pleasure to teach a seminar in Palm Springs, California on the benefits of social networking for business. Twitter is one of the most viral and effective social networking tools available for business. Many people dismiss Twitter because you can only post short messages, but there is a lot of hidden potential to promoting and supporting your business behind this microblogging tool.
One of the features that helps Twitter become so viral is the usage of hashtags. Hashtags are used to help give context or relate tweets to a particular subject. They are simply added at the end of a tweet using the pound (#) sign and then entering the trending term that the tweet relates to.
We wanted to provide some additional resources for using and tracking trending hashtags for our students at our latest seminar in Palm Springs. Find the list below and see how you can utilize hashtags for promoting your business on Twitter.
