Ride the Twitter wave with these tips

Twitter has washed over Asheville and Western North Carolina in a big wave. It’s been embraced by local mainstream media, and it’s been growing in a number of local publishing entrepreneurs who are building networks and audience with the micro-blogging service. It’s also a great way to promote and follow events like this weekend’s Bele Chere Festival in Asheville.

A couple of good examples of local small businesses using Twitter include Blanchard Hyundai and AskAsheville. You can follow Iwanna at

But for most small businesses, Twitter remains somewhat of a mystery. Just in time, Twitter has released “Twitter 101 For Business” that is a great primer for small businesses.

To show you how simple it can be, we’ve created an Asheville Tweets page that includes an Asheville Twitter feed and a Pack Square-based webcam courtesy Wilcox Travel. Check it out.

Don’t agonize over your job search

Don’t spend too much time agonizing if you don’t get a job that you were convinced you were perfect for. People do make hiring mistakes, of course, but chances are good that the hiring manager made a solid decision about who was most likely to thrive in the position. And that’s a good thing, because you don’t want a job in which you won’t excel, or a culture that would make you miserable.

Get a bigger bang on the Web

If you’re an entrepreneur or business owner, you’ve got to get the most out of the audience that is on the internet. It’s mostly an 8-5 workday crowd looking for a diversion, and there are many ways to reach them. Social networking, video, auctions, microblogging, etc., all have become new ways to engage people who may want  your product, service or even garage-sale item. At Iwanna, we’ve produced an internet marketing guide that you can download here.
