Use Twitter with a Goal in Mind

Customer Service: Respond to questions or complaints in real time.

Public Relations: Friend journalists or bloggers in your area or the DJ industry. Share resources and articles.

Sales: Offer specials and coupons. Promote new products or services.

Marketing: Become a resource: Share tips, links or other helpful content. Gather testimonials.

Research: Monitor what your clients and competitors are doing. Poll others about new ideas, products or services. Search for the buzz on keywords relevant to your mobile entertainment business.

Network: Follow industry peers. Make connections who can help troubleshoot problems or answer your questions.
