In the Tech division of Hal Leonard, we’ve been branching out to discover every possible way of getting information into your hands—all with the intent of helping you be better informed so you’ll know the trends, understand the technology, and be able to better succeed in your retail businesses.
In that quest, we’re using social media to provide you with timely insider information that can help you to stay in the know and be prepared for customer questions and inquiries.
Social Media Tools
Twitter provides an instantaneous point of contact between the informational pool at Hal Leonard and you, the retail professional. If we run across something that you should know about right away, Twitter is the right tool for the job. But, you need to be following us for that process to work. If you have a Twitter account, please follow @HalLeonardTech.
If you don’t already have a Twitter account, please sign up. It’s easy to create a Twitter account and to establish your own Twitter handle—hopefully your store name will be available. Just go to www.twitter.com and press the “SIGN UP” icon.
Once you’ve signed up, go to “Settings” from the main pulldown list found by clicking on the icon in the upper right corner of your Twitter page.
Then select “Email notifications” and make sure that you’re getting all of your updates and tweets immediately once they land in your account. Since I have all of these same options selected, I’ll also instantly see any comments or questions that you post.
