Tweet, Tweet! Greenifying on Twitter

July 16, 2009

The more we use twitter.com here at the Green Business Alliance, the more useful we see it being in efforts to Greenify.  You can catch us on there and at Facebook, several times per week.  We think it’s a great way to communicate with our members and friends.  But I want to point out some other aspects of these great tools. 

You can learn about other green businesses on twitter.  No, not those “businesses” who are interested in adding thousands upon thousands of other twitter “followers” on their accounts in an endless race for more connections that somehow allow them to make money.  Half of the time, it’s a little un clear what they are doing that somehow makes this money.

No, we’re talking about serious things you can learn about on twitter by glancing through some of the follower lists.  The community there is fascinating, ever-changing and evolving, and they are coming up with amazing ideas for green businesses that you might like.   Just some of these names alone give our imagination flight:

  • Treebanker, which is twittered by Dan Teft focuses on helping businesses with carbon footprint problems.
  • MsGreenDarling, which is twittered by Green Girl Woman as she focuses on making small, personal green choices.
  • BestGreenBlogs, that’s Tim in Tennessee and seems to be self-explanatory.
  • GreenDesignsTV, which has a very cute logo page and lots of green activities going on.
  • Bamboo_Clothing, sounds a little scratchy but so sustainable!
  • MyGreenEarth, updated by Maria Tobing with lots of bio-earth tidbits and interesting music.
  • TheSolarCompany, focused on encouraging people to go solar.  One of their recent tweets is about bodily liquids rescuing hydrogen cars.  Hmmmm.
  • USClimateLaw, who is a very cool environmental attorney in Seattle.  His tweets link to his very informative blog.
  • BuilderScrap, which links to a website about saving costs and saving the environment.

We could go on and on, but the point is that YOU should go on.  Get on twitter and join our community. We like to send out twitters when we post our blogs or for occasional other announcements.  And we really think you’ll like checking out our community of followers. You might make some friends.  You might even learn something among all the articles and information being tweeted.

And it’s so easy.  You can link to our Twitter and Facebook pages from our homepage.


Save Time: Join Us on Twitter!

May 26, 2009

We don’t usually toot our own horn here at the Green Business Alliance, but we do frequently Twitter.  That’s right: the Green Business Alliance is now on Twitter.

We’re guessing that you’re web savvy enough know what Twitter is: a social network tool that allows us to directly communicate with our members and supporters like you. 

Twitter is free and can save you a lot of time.  Are you aware that the average American receives 142 unwanted “spam” emails per day?  By 2011, it’s predicted we’ll spend 40% of our time managing email.  That’s a huge amount of wasted effort when you consider how much junk email (aka SPAM) is in our email boxes these days.

By signing up for Twitter’s updates, you can have Green Business Alliance updates sent to your mobile device or log in and check them yourself.   We’ll be “tweeting” about new blogs and articles.  The “tweets” will include valuable information to help you greenify your business better and more efficiently.  We’re hoping to post about other environmental news to help you understand your world and Greenify at home, too.  We believe it will be a whole new era of better communication with our members and readers.

And with the competition for business now tougher than ever, smarter greenifying could be the little extra edge that leads to success.

All you have to do to start this service is to visit www.twitter.com, and set up an account.  Then return to our homepage here at the Green Business Alliance and scroll down until you see the Twitter logo on the right side of the screen.  Click on that to request following our “tweets” and you’ll be linked in.

Happy Twittering!
