I remember it like it was yesterday. Setting up my Twitter account and Tweeting that first Tweet on Twitter. It was Friday, September 17, 2010, and it was like magic! I had mostly ignored Twitter previous to this day, but on this day, Twitter became a part of me, and me, a part of it. I dove in head first and was all in!
Mainly inspired by Scott Stratten of UnMarketing, my goal was modest enough, take Twitter by storm, show them who I was and become an overnight social media sensation! Or at a minimum, grow my personal brand enough that I could start public speaking at some of the better-known SEO, SEM, and Content Marketing trade shows and get my name out there. Maybe I was thinking I could go into consulting, and a large Twitter following would catapult me into that career along with a large client list that would be willing to spend thousands of dollars just for my opinion…HA!
