However, if we look at how conversations happen on social media, it has become primarily a means for broadcasting. In this session for Marketing Profs' Digital Marketing World April virtual conference on Social Media Marketing, I discussed the concept of narrowcasting and how to mine your followers for the people and conversations you're really trying to reach.

  • We use hashtags, very often, to help filter that broadcast and also to find other conversations
  • The word has been around a long time; the overall concept is not new, and it seems every time we create a new means of communication, we have to re-learn narrowcasting/targeting/segmenting.SLIDE 16
  • Search by bio, location, other aspects. PRE-REQUISITE: You need to know who you’re trying to talk to.
  • What topics is Steve tweeting about? If he’s not involved in conversations relating to your topic, it likely isn’t worth reaching out over that topic.
  • Don’t have to just look at who’s following you, and look at different kinds of people, locations.
  • See what other topics they’ve self-selected as specialties
  • These are the topics I want to be associated with
  • Twylah helps find content in the subjects you ask them for
  • oneQube content
  • See who your friends are talking to
  • See what topics a person is talking about (not just what they *say* they are talking about) on Twylah
  • I love Tweetdeck for daily engagement.
  • Monitor your Twitter lists on Hootsuite
  • IFTTT helps me automate the small details of tasks so I can focus on *finding* the content instead of moving it from one place to another
  • Buffer allows me to schedule so I don’t bombard people with a ton of content at once.
