Facebook and Twitter were made to work hand-in-hand. With the new ways that businesses have learned to connect through social media, as both “friends” to like and follow, and as whimsical tellers of interesting stories that they hope will launch them to be viral, it has never been more important for a business to learn the social side of self-promotion. Twitter is a great way to give tastes of this- pithy, 140 character tastes of what a link, a video, a website, or a longer facebook post might promise. But the double work of both sites may seem like a lot of wasted time in the hope of hitting the jackpot. Luckily, there is an easier way. By following these steps, you, two, can be double-posting your tweets in a matter of minutes.

1. If you don’t have one, get a facebook site. All you need is a valid email address, and you can launch additional business sites through the same email account, without any of your personal information dragging it down. You can even create the business site as an adjunct to your personal site, so that all of your information comes to one place. This is often easier for everyone. Once this is done, keep your login information handy.

2. Get a twitter account, and choose a name that is either related to your business, so you are easy to find, or so hilarious that people will want to be your friend just because. Start following many people, and saying really positive things, and you will find that they will quickly follow you back. Now, here is the linking part: At the bottom of each twitter post, you will see the little blue facebook f. Simply push the button, add-in and remember your facebook login information, and voila! You have officially double-posted.

3. The systems are designed to be flexible, because you may want to avoid all tweeting (and facebook posting) to be doubled. If someone is following both of your sites, you will quickly find that they get bored with you, as you become a little too repetitive- kind of like the person who puts 9 million photos of their dog, baby, or favorite political slogan on their website. To keep people interested, just choose the most poignant of the facts to double-post, and keep them wanting more. A regular presence that isn’t overbearing seems to be the best strategy to keep regular followers reading.
