The Do’s and Don’ts of Twitter’s New DM Feature | Social and Content Marketing Best Tips | Scoop.it

On October 15th, Twitter released a new feature that gives users the option of receiving direct messages (DMs) from any follower. This means that I could send a direct message to anyone that I follow who doesn’t necessarily follow me back.

 

I decided to test this feature out of curiosity as an active Tweeter (seeing if any of my followers who I don’t follow back would actually DM me) and from a consumer’s standpoint (would businesses send me direct messaging of their services?).It’s been two weeks since the initial release and from what I have experienced so far with this feature, I’ve made a quick guide of how you should go about using the new DM format, AKA the Do’s and Don’ts....

11 Lesser-Known LinkedIn Features You Should Be Using

11 Lesser-Known LinkedIn Features You Should Be Using | Social and Content Marketing Best Tips | Scoop.it

We often hear marketing and sales reps expressing their love/hate relationship with LinkedIn. Are you one who views the site as social stalking for business professionals?


 

If you’re a user that only checks the site to look up a prospect’s credentials or check a connection request email, you are missing valuable opportunities to grow professionally, to grow your sales leads, and -- ultimately -- to grow your business.

 

The benefits of using LinkedIn go beyond prospecting and recruiting. The site can also be an incredible inbound marketing tool. I tapped into the knowledge of LinkedIn expertWayne Breitbarth, who shared a few tips on the following features that you should be utilizing....

Curation de contenu et SEO, must read !

Rachael Johnston's curator insight, November 19, 4:54 PM

Curated content is not the same as duplicated content. Although it is put on websites that are not its original, it is not duplicating because it is linked to the URL of the original source, therefore it drives traffic for the original owner and it beneficial to the creator. The curated content adds value for the readers and encourages SEO in Google. Google is against duplicated material but is strongly in favour of shared content, Google views the sharing of URLs and content as a way to determine reliability and  relevancy.

 

As curated content adds value for your readers, here are The New Rules for SEO when curating, as stated in slideshow:

- Freshness - keep the content current and up-to-date. You want readers to see value in what you are sharing, and it will not do that if it is out of date.

- Relevance - you want to share content that is relevant. Sometimes things can get off track and you can lose track of the initial goal. Content curation helps organize your topics. Because you separate your content into categories, it makes it easy to rank long-tail keywords and keyword combinations within the niche. 

- Quality - you need to have value and quality in your created and curated content because that is the only way to get readers interested and seeing you as a leader and expert. Quality can be seen through Social Proof. Social proof is seen when readers share, indicating they found the content valuable and worthily of passing on to others. This can be measured by number of inbound links and social shares

 

Best 8 Content Curation Practices for SEO

- Focus on well-defined fopics

- Be relevant and consistent

- Curate from reliable sources

- Keep snippets short

- Add Insight

- Attribute to original creator

- Share to social networks

- Integrate Google Authorship with your content curation hub - add link when posting (helps SEO by creating Social Proof)

 

* All of these practices are very important in content curation and SEO. It is very important to start with a specific topic. You can choose this by determining the right keywords through the Google Keywords Tool, in order to help with SEO. You also want to make sure that you give credit to others for work that is not yours. It is imperative that once content is created and curated that it shared on the appropriate social networks in order to gain attraction and traffic.

Content inspiration and creation is an art and a science of revelation, experimentation, and testing. You need to discover the type of content that resonates with your target audience and this is an online game you have to play. It means finding what works on Facebook, Twitter, and now even LinkedIn.

 

LinkedIn discovers contentLinkedIn has been providing a publishing platform for 100 global influencers since 2012, which it expanded to 500 in 2013. They announced in February 2014 that it was opening it up to another 25,000 members and then over the next few months giving access to all its members. As a creator of content this is great news. It brings LinkedIn to life!

 

Do you have access to LinkedIn’s publishing platform?If you go to your LinkedIn homepage (not your profile page) you will need to look at the “Share an update” box and look for a pencil symbol next to the paper clip...

Want to increase engagement on Twitter?


It’s a great question, because Twitter can sometimes feel like a tough nut to crack.


The answer is in Belle Beth Cooper’s article. She has spent quite some time observing Joel Gascoigne, the CEO of scheduling app Buffer, in action.


In this case study, she reveals the types of Tweets that Gascoigne posts, how he formats and optimizes them, and what he does to find the content he shares.


“His Tweets regularly even outperform the ones posted on the @buffer Twitter account, which, at around 162,000 have roughly 6-7 times the following of Joel’s at 25,000 followers.”

A decade into the social media revolution, fatigue has set in. There are lots of ways to interact, but there are still only 24 hours in a day. What social media network is still worth your time?

 

For a growing number of brands, Pinterest is making the cut. According to Cincinnati-based marketing company Ahalogy, some 22% of Americans are now monthly visitors to the site, where people pin and share pictures and articles like you might pin magazine clippings on a bulletin board. While men are starting to join, the vast majority of Pinterest users are women, and they are generally younger women. If you’re marketing fishing equipment to retired gentlemen, then this is not your medium.
