Living In 140 Characters: 7 EASY, Fast & Helpful Twitter Tips via @Scenttrail

Living In 140 Characters: 7 EASY, Fast & Helpful Twitter Tips via @Scenttrail | Virtual administration | Scoop.it

Living In 140 Characters
Here are 7 of my favorite Twitter tips:

* NEVER use "the" unless too confusing without (rare).

* Never use "and" either, use & instead to save 2 characters.

* Best length for RTs: 110 characters.


* Reduce adjectives and adverbs modification. Stick with Subject, Object, Verb (Martin's 5 Twitter Tips: LINK instead of Martin's Awesome 5 Twitter Tips). Actually a double here because avoid bragging to. Be specific,  factual, and FAST. 

* Use Hashtags but mostly after your link (be careful since links, @s, and #s can become one confusing pile of blue).

* Use an extra space or character to create clarity especially between links, @attribution and hashtags. I slip in an extra # sometimes all by itself just for the spacing.

 

* Spacing help needed when adding photos and photos take a of characters so I add a hyphen at the end of the content and before the photo in this format " - ".

The 80-20 rule in social media (Infographic)

The 80-20 rule in social media (Infographic) | Virtual administration | Scoop.it

80 percent our your outcomes result from 20 percent of your inputs.

Nicole Paquet's curator insight, March 3, 2014 4:54 PM

This article delved into the idea behind the Pareto Principle, which is more commonly known as the 80/20 rule. Although this concept can be applied to anything in people’s lives, it relates to social media in what businesses should be focusing on. For instance, it is generally the very loyal and involved 20% of your customers who are going to drive more of your sales than say the remaining 80% who are also a part of your target market. Learning how to hone in on the exact customers who are going to make a real difference is the key to being successful. This does not mean that the consumers who are not as involved need to be forgotten about but rather, they do not require as much attention since their actions are not going to heavily influence the health of a business. This rule can also help companies in balancing the things that matter most to them. For instance, using the 80/20 concept for social media can aid people in finding the perfect amount of what content they’re posting. Perhaps the larger portion of their postings are curated from other respected sites and a smaller amount of statuses or tweets actually pertain to the company themselves. Overall, the 80/20 rule is a handy tool when it comes to understanding what a company should exactly be focusing on and eliminating any time waste could allow businesses to be able to further engage when it is really going to make a difference and with who it Is actually going to be with.

This infographic is a quick and easy way to understand the basics of the Pareto Principle as it pertains to social media.

Answer These 5 Questions Before Scheduling Your Next Meeting

Daniel Watson's curator insight, March 5, 2014 9:35 PM


Business meetings can consume far more time than warranted, and if the cost of conducting meetings was better understood by business owners, more care would be taken when scheduling them.


The cost of meetings is not confined just to the cost of the participants time in attending, and when all additional costs are considered, the return on investment is usually in negative territory unless the meetings are very successful in terms of the outcomes achieved.


This excellent article, discusses the true costs involved in conducting business meetings, and it suggests five questions every meeting convenor should ask before scheduling any meeting.

Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, March 6, 2014 8:19 PM

"The way meetings are run in your organization is a result of your internal cultural norms. These come directly from the skill or lack of skill of those leading and facilitating the meetings. New people conform and perpetuate those meeting norms."

Madhav Sharma's curator insight, March 6, 2014 9:10 PM

If the meetings are to the point and quickly identifies the action points and timelines, productivity can really be high, people feel motivated.
