"@ryan - yes, the Twitter app is brilliant. Definitely a "best in breed". I tend to use HootSuite a lot, on desktop and mobile, but that's mainly because I am used to the interface and because I use Twitter lists extensively to divide…"

"If I were an independent, I would suggest focusing on Facebook, FourSquare and UrbanSpoon. Twitter could potentially be a big time-sink it you don't have the time to dedicate to sending Tweets and maintaining Refollow."

"Great post Ryan - most restaurants are active in Social Media (or at least have a Facebook page!) but don't know how to effectively use them.  These tips are definitely helpful! "

Biography
I teach restaurants and retailers how to build repeat business and find new customers online through sites like facebook, foursquare, twitter, and YouTube. After working as a manager for a few years in the restaurant industry, I know first-hand the time crunch that owners are under. They wear many hats and marketing is usually not their main concern. I can help reduce that burden.
