Searching Social Media for Your Message
As social media continues to dominate marketing, media and PR conversations, I keep getting the same question. It's a fun tool, but what's it really have to do with business?

Tweeting for Business
Tweetdeck offers a nice search function that some entrepreneurs (hello #Bradford Shrimp!) are using to find business leads on Twitter. How? Type in a search phrase like "Wordpress help" and find everyone who's talking about your topic. Then follow them and offer interesting content/tips they can use. Run a restaurant? Try searching for the phrase "happy hour," or if you're a grocery store chain, "coupons" or "groceries." It may take a couple tries to get the phrase or keyword that works for you, but a little research could yield a new customer/client you weren't reaching yesterday. If you're not in the business of directly selling something, you can use the search function on Tweetdeck to network within your industry.

The advantage to using Bit.ly is how it doubles as a marketing tool for departments and companies investing their time and money in Internet marketing and social media.
