How to use Twitter to drive traffic

Filed under: Uncategorized — Joe Turner @ 11:43 am
I just read an article "200 DeGeneres followers go to Dallas dealership" that made me realize that Twitter really can drive actual not virtual traffic to your store, you just have to get creative.  On Monday, October 19th, the Ellen DeGeneres Show start posting tweets telling her followers "If you are in (or near) Dallas, it’s a good idea to be following me on twitter…"
 
That started at series of tweets through Tueday.  At 2:00 PM she tweeted "Dallas followers go to Sewell GMC @7474 Lemmon Ave. Be there by 5:30! Write my name on a dollar, give it to Jeannie & you’re in the running!"
 
About 200 people showed up and she gave away a GMC Terrain and raised money for breast cancer research. 
 
My mind is spinning thinking of ways to use Twitter and Facebook to drive even more than 200.
