My regular readers here on freelance writing already know that I’ve kind of fallen in love with Twitter lately. When I first joined Twitter last year I never realized the true potential of the social media platform and after the initial excitement I totally flaked out on it. Back then I was a victim of social media burnout because I ended up joining about 20 odd platforms.
Twitter is by far my most preferred platform because of the simplistic user interface. I also like the fact that one can personalize their Twitter homepage quite easily and I have done this over the past weekend myself.
To do what I did I needed a few tools:
- The free Twitter background themes at Twitterbacks
- The free photoshop psd plugin from Frank Blumenberg
After downloading and installing all of the above I was ready for the task at hand – customizing my Twitter home page to something a little more attractive and unique.
By being different than the masses I hope to eventually attract more followers which allows me to network with like-minded people through social media.
I also created a personal video greeting to welcome new readers of my blurbs by going to Bubble Tweet and creating a personalized video greeting. You can see mine by clicking on this link. The result is pretty cool I think.
By using paint I was able to manipulate the free psd file I was given at Twitterbacks and create a nice “business card” type of Twitter homepage without pestering anyone to look at my websites.
In fact, people will have to type the URLs into a browser by themselves which shows they are wishing to find out more about me and what I do for a living.
Combining social media with business couldn’t be any easier than this.
I hope this will help you to become a little more creative with your own Twitter home page yourself. No more excuses.
Once you are done, show me the result by commenting here so that we can all follow each other and connect on Twitter as well.
