As I discussed at the first Las Vegas lunch tweetup, I’ll be trying to do a tweetup about every other week. We have a new location this week so make note. Everyone’s welcome so let me know if you’re coming so I can let the restaurant know.

This month will be at a nice little italian restaurant on Tropicana not far from UNLV.

Here are the details:
Location: Sergio’s Italian Gardens – websitemap
Time: Noon
Date: Tuesday, February 24th

Send me a tweet or leave a comment if you’d like to come. Everyone’s welcome as long as we don’t get too big for Paymon’s.

Las Vegas Lunch Tweetup – Tuesday February 10

After I experienced a bit of jealousy over all those people that were going to the Beer and Blog Las Vegas, I decided to do my own Las Vegas Lunch tweetup. Evenings are just too hard for me with my little ones. Here’s my original tweet announcing the Las Vegas lunch tweetup.

Here are the details:
Location: Paymon’s Mediterranean Cafe Mapwebsite
Time: Noon
Date: Tuesday, February 10th

Send me a tweet or leave a comment if you’d like to come. Everyone’s welcome as long as we don’t get too big for Paymon’s.

Twitter Marketing

I’m far from an expert on using Twitter to market. I’ve seen a ton of interesting ideas out there that people are using to connect on Twitter. You definitely have to be creative, but it’s a great place to apply your creativity.

The thing that surprises me the most about marketing something on Twitter is how an individual tweet can drive traffic. Certainly if you have 6000 followers and you post a link, then you’ll generate traffic. I’ve seen some traffic from that type of twitter marketing, but it’s never been huge (granted I have less than 1000 followers).

What I’ve found more interesting is when an old tweet generates traffic. For example, here’s a tweet that was generated from a blog post I wrote about Jason Mesnick getting engaged at the end of Bachelor.

Not only was this post done 15 days ago, but how many people look at individual tweets? The answer is not very many. I can only assume that the search engines have found that tweet and some search engine (most likely Google) has been driving traffic to that tweet which of course prompts people to visit my blog post.

I’ve had this happen multiple times. I can’t figure out the exact rhyme or reason to why it happens, but considering how long it’s taken me to set up a twitterfeed, it seems like a worthwhile addition to anyone trying to market an RSS feed.
