Tweet Smarter not Harder – Part Two

Tweet Smarter not Harder – Part Two | SM | Scoop.it
Introduction

 

If you read Part One of this series, you recall I discussed targeting and third-party applications to save you time and help you market you business and product or service more effectively.

 

Goals For This Post (Part Two)

The beauty of Lists and how they can help you use Twitter more effectively Discuss branding, content tweets, and promo tweets and why you need to understand the difference A note on targeted following

 

LISTS


I mentioned lists briefly in Part One for the purpose of finding targets but they do so much more. Here are my top ten reasons you should be using lists:

 

1) The number one reason to use lists: each list allows you to add up to 500 people aka tweeps. You can have up to 20 lists (public or private though I recommend public). I suck at math but even I can figure out that’s 10K people!

How to Determine the Best Times to Post on Your Facebook Page

How to Determine the Best Times to Post on Your Facebook Page | SM | Scoop.it
Do you know the best time to post on your Facebook page? I’m not talking about the recommended best times, or the times when most of your followers are online, but the times to post that garner the most reach and engagement on your posts.

I’ll admit that for a bit too long, I ignored our page’s insights. They’re confusing, hard-to-follow and time-consuming. I keep up on social media best practices, so I figured that I knew the best times to post based on everyone else’s studies.

One day, that strategy stopped working. I was posting roughly three to five times per day (the general recommended amount), and I was posting at peak times when our audience was online, and one time in off hours, since we have an international audience.

Then, all of a sudden, Facebook’s algorithm hit our Facebook reach. Hard. Our posts went from being seen by 2,000 to 3,000 people to just 200 to 300 people. Even worse, they were getting no engagement. Something had to change.

Storytelling Tips When Speaking To The Same Crowd Again And Again And Again | SM | Scoop.it
I usually write about the challenges of professional and executive speaking, but there’s one speaking gig that presents difficulties even most pros don’t have to face: preaching.

More than Keywords: 7 Concepts of Advanced On-Page SEO | SM | Scoop.it

Most on-page SEO tools still rely on keyword placement to grade pages, and while it remains a good place to start, research shows its influence has fallen. 

 

While it's important to ensure your page at a bare minimum contains the keywords you want to rank for, it is unlikely that keyword placement by itself will have much of an influence on your page's ranking potential.

Here's a look at the social marketing basics and how to avoid some very common mistakes.

William Weise's curator insight, October 23, 2:19 PM

I think it is very true that many businesses don’t do enough focus on the quality of their followers, but rather on the quality. They judge themselves by the number of their followers, but they don’t take into account whether their followers are actually paying attention to their posts. It is important to keep posting content regularly that engages the audience. If you don’t keep making interesting posts, you are bound to eventually lose your audience. It is a common mistake that marketers make that once they have followers, they have customers which is not true. It is their responsibility to make the followers their customers. I believe it’s also wise to limit a company to 3 or 4 platforms and too just use the ones that are highly relevant instead of being all over the lower tier ones. Your brand on social media needs to have a personality. Personalities are what make people unique and they are, also what can make a business unique.
