Twitter and Hootsuite for business

Support provided by Business Gateway

What does this involve?

Twitter is one of the best social media platforms for making B2B and B2C connections. But in this fast-paced environment, messages – or ‘tweets’ – typically have a lifespan of less than 20 minutes. This means investing considerable resources in developing a following on Twitter, but using social media management tools can save your business time and effort.

Hootsuite is one such tool, which you can use to view all of your social media channels in one place, schedule content for posting, respond to messages, monitor trends and more.
