10 Types of “Tweets” That Encourage REAL Connection | SM | Scoop.it

 Great post by Kim Garst, Twitter can be a very powerful tool to build your business if you use it wisely.

 

Intro:

 

The purpose of Twitter and all social media, is not to make money, but to brand YOU and your business and build relationships with potential and existing customers. The money will follow if you put your customers FIRST.

 

**Mix your "business" talk with "life" talk

 

Excerpt::

 

"Twitter challenges personal brands to reach out to their audience differently than they would in traditional marketing and/or social media platforms."

 

Here are some highlights that caught my attention:

 

**The resource sharing tweet - Find a great article or a resource that you know your target audience could benefit from

 

**The quotable tweet - This one speaks for itself

 

**Tip of the Day Tweet - great way to provide relevant content to your target audience by providing them a valuable piece of info that they can use either personally or profesionally. This also builds vlaue for you as an expert within your niche.

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!

10 Amazing #SocialMedia Statistics [INFOGRAPHIC] | SM | Scoop.it
Did you know that Twitter is grabbing more new registrations than Facebook, with more than half of its entire userbase compromised of people who have signed up in the last year, compared to just 19 percent for Mark Zuckerberg’s baby?

What if I said that almost a quarter (23 percent) of Facebook users check their account five or more times each day, Twitter users are 33 percent more likely to be Democrats or – sorry Foursquare – that 74 percent of Americans are unfamiliar with the concept of ‘checking in’.

 

These, and several other amazing social media statistics, can be found in the infographic on social media statistics...

Twitter Content Strategy Guide

Twitter Content Strategy Guide | SM | Scoop.it

Twitter has quickly become a favorite part of content marketing strategies employed by most businesses. The 140 character limit means that it doesn’t take much work, users have little inhibition about following quality profiles and it’s already optimized for mobile. Curating a quality Twitter feed lends itself to an answer for so many marketing questions that it would be hard to list them all here.

 

Still yet, lots of users have no idea how to make 140 characters count. What we end up with is Twitter feeds consisting primarily of links and quotes. Quotes are an obvious place to start when you want concise snippets of text that convey wisdom and evoke strong emotions. In fact, the most successful Twitter users are almost always inspirational, funny or educational in nature. However, followers don’t want to follow a copy of someone that’s already in their feed, and as an online influencer you don’t want to be pigeonholed.

Twitter Background Design How-To and Best Practices

Twitter Background Design How-To and Best Practices | SM | Scoop.it
Check out this overview of best practices to stand out from the crowd with your Twitter theme and follow the tutorial to create your own profile from scratch.

 

With Twitter quickly becoming the hottest site to be seen on, everyone wants to stand out from the crowd. There has already been a range of quality designs showcased on various sites, which has shown an emergence of trends such as the ‘sidebar’. Let’s take a look at some of the best practices around Twitter background design and get to work creating our own.

 

We all recognise the default blue Twitter background right? It’s not a bad design, it’s clean and trendy but it doesn’t stand out when the majority of Twitter users also have the same look. Furthermore, if you’re keen to achieve more followers, removing this background would probably help out by showing that you’re an active user, or if you’re tweeting on behalf of your company or service, it helps prove that you’re not a spammer.

 

Generally speaking, there are three main approaches when it comes to creating your Twitter background (other than a boring solid colour!):

Are Brands Wielding More Influence In Social Media Than We Thought?

Are Brands Wielding More Influence In Social Media Than We Thought? | SM | Scoop.it

I selected this piece by Steve Olenski  for Forbes because it's good for B2C marketers to see the results of their social media campaigns.

 

This article is specifically aimed at B2C marketers where their consumers want instant gratification - promotions, giveaways, etc. Having said that, part of the purchasing cycle can include content in some cases depending on what you're selling and who your audience is.

 

Here are findings of a survey recently conducted by Market Force - a worldwide leader in customer intelligence solutions.

 

12,000 consumers in the US and UK were asked how they engaged with varying industries via social media: Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and Google+

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

**81% of US respondents indicated posts from their friends directly influenced their purchase decision

 

**80% of respondents “tried new things based on friends’ suggestions.”

 

**78% of respondents said the posts by companies they follow on social media impact their purchases.

 

**consumers are not all that interested in content but rather want something i.e. a promotion, giveaway, etc. when it comes to social media and their favorite brands.

 

Are Brands finally "getting it" when it comes to social media?

 

**They are getting more and more cognizant of the fact that what they post, share and so on can and will impact what the end user does – in this case, make a purchase decision.

 

**out of the 12,000 who participated 75% were women. This is incredibly significant given the fact that women account for 85% of all consumer purchases
