How to Spend Only 10 Minutes Per Day on Twitter

How to Spend Only 10 Minutes Per Day on Twitter | Working With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

The No. 1 complaint from businesses new to social media is: “I just don’t have time.” What these people don’t realize is that social media doesn’t always require a huge commitment, especially Twitter.

As Facebook constantly changes its algorithm and increases preference for promoted posts and ads, turn to Twitter for free and effective small business social networking. Your plan of attack involves two main tools: Hootsuite andTwitter Lists.

Peter Calamia's curator insight, February 23, 4:33 PM

Finally! Businesses can navigate through Twitter in only 10 minutes, but effective minutes. How? By using "Hootsuite". My only question is, would a company find this helpful? I get social media is big, and growing each and every day. But are the big companies finding such things as "Hoosuite" beneficial? I am getting confused by the amount of social media use and shortcuts, connections, and "#hashtags" that people and websites are coming up with. It seems as if these platforms are getting over used, and companies are going to start to hire 9 year old children so they can effectively compete and use "#hashtags". That's right, 9 year olds! How will President Obama possibly fit people as young as nine years old into minimum wage and unemployment debates and policies?

Abbey 's curator insight, April 7, 4:45 PM

These are quite interesting statistics! I am one of those 52% wanting special offers/promotions and also the 33% that are hoping for freebies! I tend to only like a brand on Facebook or Twitter if I initially see advertising for a competition /discount. Lots of brands make statuses saying something along the lines of "like this status for the opportunity to win......" So if I see something like that I will automatically like it and then generally forget about the brand until something promoting the brand pops up on my news feed, where I will more often than not unlike the page! The fact that only 33% of a branders "Likers" are current customers is really interesting, to me that shows that the facebook page is creating brand awareness for the other 62% that are not initial customers. So all though majority of that 62% just wants something free our a special offer, they are still learning and become more aware of the brand which is a huge positive.
