  • Joined Twitter August 2009, was COMPLETELY clueless, thought it was pointless and useless, a bunch of people over sharing and talking about nothing One year, and 13K+ tweets later- met dozens face to face, referrals leading to business, referrals that have saved deals, business coaches- have seen ROR leading to ROI
  • Personally. I have NO one set for device alerts-the only device alerts I get are DM- direct messages, and to be honest even THOSE annoy me to some degree-I’d prefer an email or text at that point-but I’m quirky like that. Part of the reason I have no device alerts set, is that I want to use Twitter on MY terms…not anyone else's…I follow some people who tweet, a lot…I follow some news organizations that constantly send out tweets.

Twitter On The Run ! Twitter On The Run ! Presentation Transcript

  • K eep I t S hort & S weet Twitter on the run !
  • What is Twitter ?
    • Social networking and micro blogging !
      • Can you say it in 140 characters or less ?
      • Can you say it with a photo ?
    • Followers – who to follow, how to follow, WHY follow ?
    • KISS: Keep it short and sweet
    • Create content or curate content or distribute content
  • Tweet Terms
    • Follower
    • Following
    • Tweets/Status
    • DM-direct message
    • @ replies/messages
    • RT
    • URL shorteners
    • Hashtag “ #rebcrye”
  • What is a follower ?
    • Quite literally, someone who subscribes to your tweets
    • Device Alerts-you may opt to get device alerts from some people you follow- which means in short someone tweets, you get a text with their tweet sent to your phone
  • Who to follow ? What to talk about ?
    • Connect and engage with people you share a common interest with
    • Search keywords –great for “listening” to see what people say about industry, or what questions or needs they have
    • Know your audience, know your purpose
  • What is a RT ?
    • Re-Tweet, is exactly what it reads like, you re post something someone else already said-think of it like those really annoying chain letter emails people forward you-or some of the GOOD things you get-strive to stay on the GOOD side, if you annoy people, they won’t follow you as you pollute the tweet stream
  • Twitter Tools
    • You can send tweets from twitter.com, many people like to use tools like TweetDeck or Hootsuite from their computers
    • You can send tweets from your phone,via SMS ,or installing a client on your smart phone
  • Scheduling Posts
    • Completely automating your tweets vs. selectively automating vs. never automating
      • Matter of taste, and in my opinion control-my strategy is selective automation-in the sense where I schedule non time sensitive tweets, and the rest, well as it comes 
    • Tweeting listings –personal blend/balance.
  • Cross-posting to other social networks
    • You can post things to twitter/facebook/linkedin etc.
    • My thought- do so selectively-everything doesn’t pertain to every platform (especially the case with LinkedIn)
    • Some tools will allow you to cross post selectively –don’t connect them all if you can help it
  • Twitter on the run
    • I tweet from my computer or mobile device,(again,if you chose to follow me,device alerts may not be so smart  )
    • If you’re a blackberry user,from what I’ve seen most people prefer UberTwitter or Twitter for Blackberry- or twitter via SMS
    • iPhone : I prefer Tweetdeck or Twitter for iPhone
    • iPad : Twitter for iPad, Twitteriffic or Tweetdeck
  • How to get started on Twitter
    • Go to www.twitter.com
    • Choose a username-follow signup process
    • Create your profile- do NOT leave the “bio” section blank !
    • Add your mobile device OR (recommended) play around with twitter client
    • Search for people you already know via email
  • Have more questions ?
    • Feel free to connect and engage with me in any way you choose.
      • Tweet me : @NikkiBeauchamp. Follow me with device alerts at your own risk ;)
      • Call me : M: 917-528-6501 O: 212-300-1835
      • Email me : [email_address]
      • Grab me after the session and shake me down until I weep or laugh hysterically 
