Social media is an excellent way to advertise your product or service to millions of people totally free. There are a number of different social media networks but the most popular ones at the moment are Facebook and Twitter.
With millions of people / businesses with Twitter accounts and Facebook pages its important to stand out from the crowd and get yourself noticed. One of the best way to do this is to write relevant, engaging and informative information. After all if its boring and uninteresting who’s going to want to read it?
Another method of getting attention is to customise your account so that you are unique to all other accounts. This will surprise people and they are more likely to stand up and take notice. However there are limited opportunities to do this on a social media network such as Twitter because of the constraints placed upon the account holder.
There is one thing you can do on Twitter though and that is to created a custom twitter background. Use this to draw attention to your account, provide contact details and website addresses.
Take a look at a number of example of excellent Twitter backgrounds:
