Brand new beginners to Twitter need a lot of help.
I remember how overwhelming and confusing Twitter was when I took my first peek at it and that's why I decided to write an e-book that explains every component: the who, what, when and why of Twitter and include a workbook that guides you every day, for 20 days, showing you what to do so you can make use of every minute of your time. [Be sure to scroll down and read testimonials of my Social Media work].
You might be a beginner or you might have been tweeting for a while now--remember when you started? I remember I saw a bunch of short messages with small pictures of people next to the messages. So I thought, "Are these people talking to each other? Is this like a chat room?" (No, Twitter is not a chat room).
The messages were like random snatches of conversation yet I could tell that none of these people were talking TO each other: they seemed to be talking to someone who wasn't visible to me. I was intrigued, confused and delighted all at the same time. But thought it was frivolous. I thought "How can I possibly find a use for this? I don't have time to twitter!"
Boy, was I wrong. Since then, I've made friends who feel like people I've been destined to know; I've increased my income substantially and I continue to get referrals from people in my Social Networks, especially in Twitter.
The more I use Twitter to connect with and promote other people (and sometimes myself), to teach people, laugh and cry with people, the more I see that Twitter is NOT frivolous, in fact, I think Twitter and Social Networking is evolving us as a human race. Certainly, Twitter is enabling me to reach an audience that connects with my message on different levels. Some of these people are leaders, politicians, celebrities---people I would never have had access to if it weren't for Twitter.
You're here because someone YOU know connected you to me.
Or you're here because you read my words and FELT a connection.
Or you're here because you saw my Twitter profile and FELT DRAWN to me in some way.
Bottomline: we are now connected to each other because of Social Networking via Twitter.
I'd like to show you how you can build your own community of people who'll become your friends, eager to help you and refer tips and resources and even work to you!
You'll also begin to see how you can use Twitter to build a legacy of your life: like a documentation of moments that were meaningful to you. Your children will be left a precious gift when you depart this life-your tweets.
My Twitter workbook for beginners, which is called "Become a Twitter Pro In 20 Days," is meant to help the business owner who wants to learn how to create a buzz around her/his company and get step-by-step instructions on how to do it: when to Tweet: how long to Tweet each day: and what to say.

"Lori is "the" epitome of "influential." I am lucky to have had many opportunities of engaging in conversation with her and I have observed her work. Knowledgeable, extremely capable and versatile. She will always greet you with a warm smile. A master of social media, she knows how to work the "scene."

In this section I virtually hold your hand and lead you through Twitter with checklists; customizable tweets that you can use to get started; tips on where to find content to tweet about; when to tweet about yourself (hint: it's not as often as you'd like to) and budgeted amounts of time; so you can easily manage your daily Social Networking and become a Twitter Pro in 20 days.
Bonuses include access to my Twitter friends, the Kings and Queens of the Twitterverse and instructions on sending me a tweet so you can get one-on-one help as you begin to tweet.
The First 8 Days: You'll spend these amounts of time to become a pro and in my e-book you'll find out exactly what you'll be doing with this time:
Sunday: 2 hours
Monday: 1 hour
Tuesday: 45 minutes
Wednesday: 30 minutes
Thursday: 20 minutes
Friday: 1 hour
Saturday: 1 hour
Sunday: Take the day off--if you want.
Then I take you by the hand (virtually) and guide you for the next 12 days, similar to the first 8 days above, except you'll spend much less time: from 5 minutes to 30 minutes per day (or more if you want to build your community more quickly).
The last section of my e-book is filled with my sizzling hot advice. I have a growing community of over 4000 followers in Twitter who've chosen to follow me--I did not use any robots to obtain followers.
