In my opinion, the whole conversation about what is the right way to use Twitter or who’s using it wrong just adds to the confusion of those on the early stages of social media.
There are different styles and it seems that we tend to go one way or the other. What’s important is that the objective of using Twitter for your business is clear to you. Your voice, as some call it, will develop naturally.
What I want to do with this post is provide some basic understanding and clarity on the different styles to see if there is in fact, a right way to use Twitter. If you navigate through some of the accounts of the biggest names such as @guykawasaki, @chrisbrogan or even @aplusk you will be able to see the differences in style very clear.
What tools do you use to handle your Twitter activity? This is one of the questions I get asked a lot…
And while I think tools should take the backseat in social media, they are still important in helping you be more productive, engage better, measure and just make your life easier. Besides, let’s be honest, tools are cool.
That’s why I thought of making a little list of 10 of the free tools I use on a daily basis, not just to share with you what I use but for you to participate and make this a useful discussion. So, add your tools in the comments section of this post to share with everybody and maybe learn from others too.
Today is a very exciting day at SocialMouths, we are finally launching our new redesigned home and, of course that means some weird stuff happening in the front-end. Please excuse us if you experience longer load times or you see stuff out of place, we are working very fast to go back to normal as soon as possible.
Giving stuff away is a great way to raise brand awareness. Get yourself in the map.
Running a contest on social platforms can also give you great opportunities to start interacting with people and showcase your product or service.
While running a contest on Twitter offers some juicy advantages like very low cost, the opportunity to interact with the user on real-time or the possibility to go viral, you should also consider taking the time to have a strategy in place. After all, getting no response at all is no fun and, it can even make you look bad.
