Part of growing your business is doing market research. This was probably one of the first steps you took before you even started your business. You looked at your industry to see what was going on and what was missing, and from there how you could fill that gap with your service or product. You probably started online using Google or other search engines to see what was out there. But did you think about checking on Twitter?
Twitter allows you to create and join in on conversations centered on your market, your industry and your message, all around the world. This is not only extremely helpful for networking, but also so useful for market research. It means you can create relationships and learn more about your marketplace all at the same time.
