Advertising or propagating something on the net does not have to be a text communication anymore, though they have their own merits. You must already know a lot of ways to carry out the task but there is a fun way to do it. It is Twibbon. Which many of you must have heard of or even have used it.
Effect of Twibbon
A Twibbon, as you could have guessed, is a portmanteau of the words Twitter and ribbon. You can put it to use in Twitter and Facebook. You can support any cause that you have taken a fancy to. The central point of it all is having fun. Nothing serious about it though you can maximize the effect of your avatars by adding Twibbon to them. The timely addition makes your profile more appealing and can probably make your campaigns more effective.
For instance, if you had added the picture or caricature Oscar statuette to your profile during the recent Oscars ceremony, people would have thought you smart. The possibilities are endless. You can add Santa Clause during Christmas or you can add a football during the Super Bowl. Only, be sure to add something that the visitors would immediately see the connection of and which would bring a smile to their faces. You can cleverly use Twibbons to promote your business too. Say you are manufacturing and marketing baby bedding sets comprising of pillows, mattresses and Sleeping Bags …the works! You can keep changing the Twibbons from one item to another. This requires removing the current one that is to be replaced by the new one.
Go to Twibbon.com, log in with Facebook or Twitter handle. Find the Twibbon in Google or from your computer. After selecting, click on the Support This button you find next to the image. There you are! Your Twibbon is in place!
You should keep in mind that, by their very nature, Twibbons cannot be a permanent fixture in your Twitter profile. When the purpose of one is past its utility, you had better remove it so that your profile does not give a stale impression. A surprisingly large number of people who have created a Twibbon do not have a clue when it comes to removing them. It is no really a tough job; it indeed is an easy one.
Go to http://twibbon.com first and login with your Twitter or Facebook handle. You can see your Twitter of Facebook name in the corner on the right side of your screen and My Profile. Click on it. The page will now show your current avatar in the middle of the screen. There would be two tabs above it: Profile and History. Click on History. Now, choose the avatar you are currently using and click on the Revert button below it. The next screen will appear now. You will now have to choose the original avatar you had created earlier that was replaced by your Twibbon. When the next screen appears, you must confirm your action by clicking Make This My Profile Image.
That is it, have fun!
