How to Use Hashtags on Twitter: A Simple Guide for Marketers

How to Use Hashtags on Twitter: A Simple Guide for Marketers | Social on the GO!!! | Scoop.it

A simple guide to understanding how to effectively use Twitter hashtags in marketing and how you shouldn't! [note mg]

 

Every time we host live webinars (and as this long list suggests, that is quite often), quite a few attendees get confused about what to do with the hashtag we provide. What is it? What does it do? How do you create one? Let me explain!

 

What is a hashtag?

 

A Twitter hashtag is simply a keyword phrase, spelled out without spaces, with a pound sign (#) in front of it. For example, #inboundchat and #ILoveChocolate are both hashtags.

 

What does a hashtag do?

 

A Twitter hashtag ties the conversations of different users into one stream, which you can find by searching the hastag in Twitter Search or by using a third-party monitoring tool such as HootSuite.

Hi students (and visitors). If you are having trouble with your profile photo changing every time that you post a new scoop, you can fix it by following these directions that a representative from Scoop.it sent me:
Indeed there's a setting to avoid that. Tell your students that on their Curate page, click on Manage>Customizations>untick "Last Post Image" box and click on Save.

A Stalker’s Guide to Competitive Research

A Stalker’s Guide to Competitive Research | Social on the GO!!! | Scoop.it

Competitive research is an area that’s either completely overlooked by a brand, or taken to an extreme level while missing the basic goals that need to be reached. Because competitive research becomes a cornerstone for strategy development, it’s important to research from inside the trees, and outside of the forest.

 

Overall, brands need to:

Identify what others are already doing in the space, and how successful they are. Identify areas of opportunity and weaknesses within their specific vertical. Identify what tactics a competitor is using to gain a competitive advantage.

 

What We’re Doing

 

We approach competitive research with these fundamental questions:

What is their link building strategy? How are they leveraging social media? Identify areas of weakness or opportunity in their strategy (notice whether they’re focusing strictly on their brand, or expanding into other social areas for maximum reach). How all these facets work together: focus on their overall “marketing strategy” rather than segregating them into “search” and “social.” Continuing the stalking with tips and tools.
