Twitter Marketing Tips: Resources to leverage your time using Twitter

Do you ever feel overwhelmed by all of the talk about Social Media? Are you spending more than 30 minutes max per day on Twitter Marketing? Facebook? You don’t have to spend most of your day on these sites. I’ll share with you a couple of resources that can assist you in leveraging your time.

Some of what I’m going to share can also be applied to other Social Media sites such as Facebook and LinkedIn, however, in this post I will focus on Twitter.

What is Twitter? Well, where have you been? LOL

Twitter is a great resource to enhance your marketing efforts and will definitely offer
Business Empowerment when you know what you’re doing.

Individuals communicate via what you might call micro blogging. You are limited to 140 characters, however, with a little practice you can communicate quite a bit within that limit.

When I was first introduced to Twitter I watched as people made recommendations on Fridays and they called it follow Friday. Well I had all of my 20 followers and my goal was to get enough followers so I too could receive mentions for Follow Friday. Well I reached 100 and soon took my eye off of the quantity but the quality of my tweets and before long I reached 1000, 2000 and now at the time of this writing I have over 11,000 total followers. You can imagine with that many followers it can become a little overwhelming to manage as the tweets go by fast.

I’ve gained clients and even met a few new friends as a result of Twitter. I proud to say that I was also recognized as 1 of 25 urban Entrepreneurs to follow on Twitter by Brand Maker News.

If you’re looking to increase your visibility and you should, Twitter is one way to do this.

You can set up an account by going to http://www.twitter.com. You’ll see prompts to guide you through the process. If you need support I do offer mini coaching packages to help you develop a strategy,get set up, and get targeted followers.

Now here are a couple of resources to help you leverage your time on Twitter.

Socialoomph.com

Socialoomph formally known as Tweetlater is a fantastic tool to use with Twitter. It allows you to schedule tweets for various times of the day. So how can this be of use to you?

Well you need to remember that the Twitter audience is constantly changing and the tweetstream occurs quite fast. The more people someone follows, the greater the number of tweets appearing and they won’t read them all, I promise you. It just isn’t possible. By using Socialoomph, you have a much greater chance of catching people’s attention throughout the day and in different time zones.

Let’s say you have written a post on your blog and you want to drive some traffic there. Rather than tweeting the link and subject once, you can do it every 4 hours for 24 hours if you like using Socialoomph. You will want to change the tweet up a bit. I’m sure you can see the power of this in terms of driving traffic or getting noticed.
There is a free and a professional version of Socialoomph. Start out with the free version and then if you need it, upgrade to the professional version when you are ready.

The next is Hootsuite.com

This does some of the same things as Socialoomph,however, there are other advantages. For instance you can have streams according to your settings. You could have one stream that focuses on the key words you’ve selected, another stream with your home page, RT or other selected and Hootsuite also has it set up where you can stream the featured twitter accounts. There is a free option which allows you to do the above as well as a paid option.

These are just a couple of resources available to you which will allow you to automate some of your activities. Although you’re able to automate you do want to visit Twitter from time to time to interact with your followers. It’s not called Social media for nothing.
