Twitter for the small business

Whilst surfing Twitter earlier today, can’t remember what I was actually looking for at the time, I stumbled on a tweet from a cleaning company based in London.

It grabbed my attention because it was simple and to the point, it also included some good keywords relevant to their line of business. The tweet was a great example of how a small business can use Twitter to advertise their business to millions of people online and help them find new potential customers who are actually going to be interested in their products.

In the current climate small business are always on the look out for low-cost ways to advertise their business and one of the best ways to promote a business online is Twitter!

I’m not sure which of their tweets I initially came across so I’ve just included a few below so you can see what I mean.
