I'm just reading through the ETSY forums and there's a post about following people on Twitter. I always see people posting in the forums...."I won't follow someone who promotes their products on Twitter." This sort of blows my mind. Isn't Twitter for promoting and networking? Personally I don't think I would want to do business with someone that would exclude a person because of "Too much promoting..." I suppose I'm being hypocritical by making that statement , hmmm.
However, I see all these people that have hundreds of followers and they are only following fifty or so back. This makes no sense to me. If someone can explain this I would greatly appreciate it.
It seems to me you are turning away perfectly good customers by not following. All a person has to do is check their Twitter Karma to find out who exactly is not following them. Recently I have been checking my Twitter Karma to eliminate people that are not following me because I couldn't follow more than 2000 people if I didn't. Now I'm past the 2000 mark and I won't eliminate anyone else. What if they do decide to follow me eventually that might mean one more sale to keep my business going.
Just felt like venting today.... If you want to follow me on Twitter.... I will follow you back. Feel free to promote all you want. I want to see your products and I might not see them otherwise.
