New York (Vocus) July 23, 2009
Geekpreneur, the entrepreneurial blog for geeks, today announced the release of "99 Ways to Make Money Using Twitter," a practical, case-study-rich guide to turning Twitter's popularity to your financial advantage. The 376-page softcover book, a follow-up to Geekpreneur's successful "A Geek's Guide to Twitter," is now available at Amazon or by visiting the Geekpreneur Web site at http://www.geekpreneur.com/twitter-business-book.
Loaded with insider tips and proven strategies, "99 Ways to Make Money Using Twitter" demonstrates how savvy Twitter users have successfully leveraged microblogging to build brands, win customers, earn extra income and more. The Twitter marketing book's case studies range from entrepreneurs who are making money directly through Twitter-based businesses, to established companies that are using Twitter to burnish their brands, build communities and improve customer service.
The book rates each of the "99 Ways" it outlines by level of difficulty, skills required and income potential, to help readers identify the methods that would work best for them. While every method won't be suitable for every reader, this Twitter book is the first to offer a comprehensive understanding of the full breadth of financial opportunities made possible by Twitter.
