And furthermore, how can I do it affordably?Three months ago I found myself asking myself the same question and so I embarked on a journey to try and solve it.

The Secret Behind The Most Innovative Tweeters

The Secret Behind The Most Innovative Tweeters | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Twitter can feel like a crowded subway station at rush hour—everyone pushing past each other to get where they need to go. But in the Twittersphere, where exactly is the destination?


"People really have defaulted in social media to just putting out content," says Gary Vaynerchuk, founder of social media brand consulting agency VaynerMedia. "That's no different than a newsletter or a blog. It leaves an enormous amount of opportunity on the table."...

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Well beyond hashtags and RTs, the people who have mastered Twitter have mastered these things.

Instagram Is Getting So Good at News, It Should Scare Twitter | WIRED

Instagram Is Getting So Good at News, It Should Scare Twitter | WIRED | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it
It’s raining in San Francisco. Hard. Trees have already fallen, and the skeletons of cast-off umbrellas are tumbling down the street. This is the kind of storm that drives a girl to social media to watch the drama unfold. And while Twitter historically has been the best place to unearth real-time updates and descriptions, it’s not nearly as compelling as the stream of images flooding Instagram today.

Don’t believe me? Go ahead. Try it. Pull up your app and hit the magnifying glass on the bottom left. That’s the explore tab. Now search for rain in San Francisco, or better yet, try searching for the hashtag #Hellastorm. There’s a photo of cars driving down a road so flooded their wheels are invisible beneath the water. There’s a photo of a sign on the door of Santa Rosa Junior College, announcing it’s closing at noon. And there’s the one I just posted of my friend Carla throwing sandbags into the back of her station wagon to stop the water currently gushing into her garage.

Embedded in the captions, many of which are dense with information, is the kind of local news I’ve seen before—in tweets. The puddle at 9th and Irving went up to mid-calf. This section of Highway 1 in Pacifica near Manor Drive is flooded. Instagram has become a visual version of the real-time news stream that Twitter invented. And with 300 million monthly active users, it’s beating out the little blue bird to become the dominant mass messaging platform.
Jeff Domansky's insight:

Good look athow Instagram is making news relevant and exciting and maybe putting fear and Twitter.

How to analyze all your 2014 tweets - Christopher S. Penn

How to analyze all your 2014 tweets - Christopher S. Penn | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Twitter’s Analytics tool has never been super forthcoming about all it can do. From its lackluster announcement of a stellar feature to non-obvious ways of getting at your data, it’s a goldmine without a map. As you start looking at the year’s marketing data, you might logically say, hey, can we analyze how we did on Twitter? From the default Analytics interface, the answer might appear to be no. Luckily, there’s a trick to get the answer you need.


First, log into Twitter Analytics by going to  ads.twitter.com  or  analytics.twitter.com,  depending on what your account is set up for (if you don’t see anything in one, try the other). Next, go to the Tweet Activity section....

Brands Wasting Time, Money on Facebook, Twitter Forrester Says | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Today market research firm Forrester published a report for brands titled “Social Relationship Strategies That Work.”


So: What works? Not Facebook or Twitter.


The crux of the research suggests that brands are wasting their time, effort, and money on Facebook and Twitter to diminishing returns. A study conducted by the firm from earlier this year found that posts from top brands on Twitter and Facebook reach just 2% of their followers. Engagement is even more measly: A mere 0.07% of followers actually interact with those posts....

The Lowdown On Twitter Analytics | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

If you’re a data wonk or just a social media nerd like me, you’re going to LOVE Twitter analytics. The good news is, its easy to acess and simple to use. Start by logging into your account.


Visit  https://analytics.twitter.com/user/[your twitter handle here]. You should see a blue box right up top that offers you access to your “Tweet Activity Dashboard.” Click it. If you don’t see the box, you can get to your analytics by visiting https://ads.twitter.com and selecting “Analytics” from the dropdown menu on top.


What Analytics Matter?
To determine what analytics are most valuable to you, start by revisiting your goals. What are you trying to accomplish through your social media presence? Is it reach (are you trying to reach the widest audience?)? If so, you’ll want to see when your tweets are getting the most organic reach and how your followers are trending. Are you growing your follower base? Is there a time when some tweets do better than others?...
