Branding Tip: How to Add a "Follow Me at Twitter" Button

While looking up something for myself, I ran across an AWESOME video this morning.

How do you get and add that Twitter Follow @ YourName button?

It's easy!

Actually, this video by Isaac Wardell ( MAKES it easy!

You can watch the video, or you can read these instructions.

Benefits of Adding Twitter Follow Button on Your Website

You probably know since you are trying to do this for yourself (and you took time to read my post and watch the video), but I'm excited about this, because...

A. Users NEVER have to leave MY website.  They can just FOLLOW me.
B. It makes it EASY for me to stay in front of people who want to learn more about my ideas.
C. It provides an additional Call-to-Action that you can tell people.  (Not everyone wants you to send email!)
D. People cannot see your Twitter posts--UNLESS they are following  you.  Make it easy for them!
