Medical Spa Medspa Advertising Marketing > Choosing A Twitter Name For Your Medspa

I've already written about how you should use your real name, NOT your business name as your twitter name.

But uhoh - with millions of users joining every day what if your name is taken?

Well let me walk you through a few examples.

One popular solution is the first name plus initials. Elizabeth Potts-Weinstein (while being a lovely person) has the misfortune of a too-long-for-twitter name. So she choose @ElizabethPW instead.

I'm another example, choosing my actual name @jeffbarson as my twitter name.

There are many ways to shorten your name but I suggest going with ONE of your names in full and the rest initials. So if you go by Anna Burleson Perez choose AnnaP, AnnaBP, ABPerez, APerez, etc. Don't get all crazy on me and choose something like AnnaBurP. It's confusing. Also, you just named yourself Anna Burp.

Another clever trick for choosing your twitter name is to go with something that combines your business/profession with your name. I suggested that my friend Liz Dennery Marks (another too-long-for-twitter-name - what is WITH you gals with the two last names!) go with SheBrandLiz which combines her company name (SheBrand) with her first name (Liz). A word of caution here - make sure you want to stick with the business name or profession that you choose. Don't be VideoJoe if you think you might move your business into audio instead. You will forever be "branded" in people's minds with your twitter name, so choose carefully.

If you've already chosen a twitter name that you now realize - let's be honest - is a big ol' pile of crap, it's not too late! Just go into your settings to change your name and everything will be automatically updated for you, and you will remain on the list of everyone who is following you under a new name. (I walk you through this process on-screen in Your Backstage Pass to Twitter if you need a little hand-holding.
