Get tons of traffic from Twitter

How come Twitter is so simple and yet every social media expert on the planet tries to make it look so complicated?

Twitter marketing is not a rocket science, and obviously you don’t need a PhD to run your Twitter account, right?

However, many bloggers seem to misunderstand how Twitter works and as they try to milk it for traffic they end up doing totally ineffective things: change their profile picture 3 times, order a custom twitter profile design, and rewrite their twitter bio twice a week. But all of that doesn’t help. read more

How to Use Twitter’s Advanced Search Engine for Networking & Marketing

Twitter cannot be ignored, point blank. If you and your business have written it off as a site simply for teenagers or idle youngsters to rant, make noise and post about every meal they’re having, you’re dead wrong. Any website that has 645 million active users with 58 million public conversations per day is not something you should be ignoring in your marketing strategy; and if you have an account but are not using it, I’m going to convince you to start doing otherwise.

Beyond Google: 5 Social Media Strategies for 2014

Filed as Guides with 6 comments

Social media strategiesIt doesn’t take an expert to see that Google search no longer has the same reach that it had just a few years ago. Sure, Google still controls more than two-thirds of American search, but it isn’t the only platform by where people connect online. Thanks to social media, your customers may be just as likely to find you on Facebook or some other sites as they are using Google search. Here are five social media strategies (websites) for 2014 that every company should consider.

Facebook — What are you using Facebook for? Hopefully, your business has its own page there, perhaps multiple pages for different and distinct products that you sell. Facebook can no longer be ignored: there are more than 1 billion global users engaged. Use it post new information about your company, to elicit feedback from your customers, and make special promotional pitches. Encourage people to “like” your pages and to reshare your information. read more

Why Twitter is Awesome Like Bacon with Chris Reimer

Twitter

Chris Reimer is a longtime Twitter evangelist, and when not posting far more than 140 characters, he’s got his game face on as VP of Social Media at Falk Harrison.

Why is Twitter a great platform, and how is it different from other social networks?

Twitter is brilliant. It allows for direct, one-on-one engagement and outreach to anyone on Earth (who uses Twitter). Humans love to communicate, and want to be heard. There are countless case studies of people using Twitter to move mountains – to launch products, to gain exposure via someone famous, to sell products, to reconnect with old friends, to build something out of nothing with no ad budget whatsoever!

This is a dumb example, but I was watching Piers Morgan interview Kyra Sedgwick. I can’t remember what they talked about, but it was a great discussion. I was able to tweet “Hey @kyrasedgwick, I really enjoyed your interview on @piersmorgan.” In this case neither responded, and yet I still was very pleased to be able to say this to them. I don’t know why – it’s just how we as humans roll. I hope to be a guest on Piers’ show some day (seriously, why not). Could it help even a little bit that I tweeted him about his Kyra Sedgwick interview? I don’t know, and herein lies the problem for people. read more

You’re Hurting Your Blog: Get Involved in Social Media Before It’s Too Late

medium_3231178720

Maybe you’ve read an article with this same or a similar title before. You know Twitter and Facebook are important for your brand, yet you just haven’t made yourself sign up for Twitter yet. And your LinkedIn profile is barren, with an incomplete job  history and no portfolio examples. Your blog seems to be doing OK, but you know it could be better.

If this is you– I challenge you to get set-up with social media ASAP. And once you’ve done that, create time in your daily routine for social media. Even 15 minutes per day can help you craft a regular online presence.

You know you should be on social media, but if you are a blogger or representing any of your work online, not having a regular social media presence can hurt not only your blog traffic, but your online persona as well.

According to Twitter:

“Synchronized Twitter and TV ad campaigns make brand messages more engaging, interactive and measurable.”

Thanks to its acquisition of Bluefin Labs, the micro-blogging service now has the ability to closely monitor shared content in order to gain a reference point for television programming. The program works even if a user doesn’t explicitly reference the name of the TV show they just watched. read more

Twitter Two-Factor Authentication Is Now Available

Filed as News with 2 comments

Twitter SecurityTwitter, on Wednesday, delivered on its promise to bring two-factor authentication to its massive micro-blogging network.

The opt-in feature requires users to receive an access code on their smartphone via SMS text messaging.

Earlier in the month, it was announced that Twitter employees were currently testing the Twitter two-factor authentication setup. The tests began after several high profile accounts including Burger King and The Associated Press were hacked and disturbing messages were posted to their accounts.

There are some limitations to the type of two-factor authentication being used. Specifically, many high-profile account users have multiple workers who access their Twitter account. Because two-factor authentication relies on an SMS text message to a single smartphone, it won’t work for multiple users.  read more
