What Results Should You Expect From Twitter?

What Results Should You Expect From Twitter? | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

Twitter is a great way to build and engage an audience with short, timely, relevant messages, but if you’re trying to drive traffic to your website, what results should you expect in terms of click-through rates?

Check out this Infographic by Joanna Franchetti from Sign-Up, who analysed tens of thousands of tweets sent through Sign-Up’s Twitter marketing tools in the first seven months of 2012 to find out the answer.

Looking at average click through rates (CTR) from tweets and how this varied by the number of followers, day of the week and time of tweet.

They found that the average click through rate for a tweet is 1.64% (just over half the rate of email, which averages 2.95%), and that this declines rapidly as your number of followers increases. They also found that clicks tend to increase later in the day, peaking at around 6pm.

'When I got into SEO, I had a difficult time starting. It was not as much as the content, but where to find it and which one is worth reading.

 

There are bunch of “definitive” “essential” “step-by-step” or “basic” guides to SEO on the internet, and quite honestly not all of them are just as good.

 

To spare you the trial and error and your time, this here is a list of the best Guides to SEO out there'

Spundge is a cool new tool for creating visual presentations from the web or with your own content. Though it is aimed at business professionals , it can be used by teachers (aren't they professionals?) for creating educational presentations and for storytelling.

Spundge is free of charge.

Google is gaining a foothold in classrooms.  My former employer now has a Google Chrome program in place and used this past summer to educate teachers on their use.  The feedback was good.  I am going to keep in touch with some of my former coworkers and will see how the program pans out over the course of the school year.

David Swaddle's curator insight, August 31, 7:28 PM

This article got me thinking. It's about transitions in user interface design with some very nice animated examples.

 

Are the transitions shown here useful in a learning context, or are they merely window dressing that detracts from learnability? Personally, I think that while they look nice the first time, most of these transitions become annoying with time, simply delaying users. Mayer and others have shown how eye-candy can often be detrimental to learning.

 

Is it time for some generous academic to re-evaluate the situation in light of recent UX designs, preferably in a corporate setting? Or, maybe somebody already has and some kind soul could post here and point me in the right direction?

10 must-have IFTTT recipes for social media managers | Battenhall

10 must-have IFTTT recipes for social media managers | Battenhall | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

If you haven’t used IFTTT before, it’s like a dashboard of connectors that can make anything hooked up to the web work by itself, using triggers, or ‘ifs’, to power devices, social media and web services. The triggers include Internet of Things devices, time of day, weather, football results or social media pings. The actions include electricity switches, push-alerts, email, and pretty much any web service.


Anyone can create their own ‘recipes’, as IFTTT calls them, and if you are stumped for inspiration, you can browse open, shared recipes that have been created by other IFTTT users. There are over 136,000 of them here.


If you are looking to turbo charge your social media strategy, here are 8 of our favourite IFTTT recipes (with two fun ones for good luck):...
