Tweet Smarter not Harder – Part Two

Tweet Smarter not Harder – Part Two | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | 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!

Finding Balance in the Age of Digital Overload

Finding Balance in the Age of Digital Overload | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

When the Author Dean Whitney says: "You need a “system” you can trust" I think it is right. Today we have so many information so that we really need a system [note Martin Gysler]


It's a new year and a great time to talk about goals and balance. If you are like me, your work is always with you. You wake up and check your email on the computer and if you're not near the computer, the iPhone or Blackberry is always within reach. As digital information becomes more accessible so to does our ability to communicate. For every actionable email there seems to be 10 emails with useful information and 100 useless cc's and spam emails. Then there’s the rest of life: mental, spiritual and physical realities. Our real world relationships, our dreams and our health needs to be in balance with all this digital information. Without proper and directed focus, years can go by without making significant progress.


Your life goals don’t ask you for permission to use “push notifications”


S.U.D.S or “Seemingly Unimportant Decisions”. Everyday we need to make hundreds, even thousands of decisions. From what to wear, eat, what time to get up, exercise, which emails to reply to, what to read, and how to spend our time. The problem is that all the really important and beneficial tasks don't bug you if you don’t perform them....

10 Content Marketing Goals Worth Pursuing

10 Content Marketing Goals Worth Pursuing | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

Content is the new buzzword, but content alone has no magical powers. It won't transform your business or get you where you need to go ... until you add one thing... Which? It's what you'll find in this excellent post with ten goals to follow! [note Martin Gysler]


Ever wonder why content marketing works so well for some businesses … and doesn’t seem to do anything at all for others?


Curious about why some content that seems great doesn’t do anything to build the business?


“Content is king” has been an online cliché for years now, but it’s not true. It’s never been true.


Content all by itself — even terrific content — is just content.


It may be entertaining. It may be educational. It may contain the secret to world peace and fresh, minty breath, all rolled into one.


But it has no magical powers. It won’t transform your business or get you where you need to go, until you add one thing …


Content marketing is a meaningless exercise without business goals.

6 Ways to Measure Your Social Media Results

6 Ways to Measure Your Social Media Results | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it
Social media measurement: how to develop a framework for tying your social media performance to your business goals so you can measure your social media results.

 

How much time are you spending on social media? Can you tell if it’s helping sales?

 

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a framework for measuring the impact of your social media efforts?

 

That’s where Susan Etlinger’s new research for the Altimeter Group comes into play. Susan did qualitative research with 60 social media marketers and vendors to understand how businesses currently measure their social media performance.

 

Her goal: to develop a framework for tying social media performance to business goals.

 

NOTE: Because Susan’s original research targeted enterprise-level companies, I interviewed her to add some small business insights. The following comments combine results of the research and that interview...
