  • 1. Digital & Social Media Marketing    Career  Resume  Consulting,  Tammy  Kabell,  Six  Figure  Pro  Webinar  Series  October  05,  2011  PowerPoint  Author  Notes  Setting  up  a  Executive  Job  Seeker  Twitter  Profile    PPT  Content  Signing  In  Go  to  Twitter.com.    Enter  your  Full  Name,  Email  Address  and  a  password  Recommend  you  make  a  password  decently  complex,  with  one  capital,  alphanumeric  and  1  character/  number.    Twitter  can  been  hacked  if  you  have  a  simplistic  password.        Want  to  make  a  mention  about  your  email  address.    You  may  want  to  consider  setting  up  a  dummy  or  social  media  only  email  outside  of  your  corporate  or  personal  email  address.    I  have  found  directing  one’s    social  media  “news”  and  email  updates  into  a  secondary  email  address,  such  as  willgladhartsm@gmail.com  keeps  one  from  being  overloaded  with  the  barrage  of  updates,  news  and  changes  every  minute  in  Social  Media.    Keeping  your  primary  business  email  inbox  uncluttered  really  helps  determine  what  is  important  and  a  non-­‐important  read.        Validating  Handle/  Name  Now,  you  will  see  a  screen  where  Twitter  is  checking  your  name,  validating  an  email  address,  checking  your  password  and  assessing  if  your  name/  username  is  available.    You  can  change  the  name  here,  but  recommend  keeping  it  simple:    eg.  @willgladhart  or  @willgladhart1  (how  you  will  be  identified).      Recommendations  1-­‐3  When  Twitter  creates  your  account,  it  gives  you  a  list  of  “recommended  people  to  follow.”    You  can  skip  this  step.    Next  you  are  directed  to  select  your  interests.    Again,  another  step  you  can  skip  and  return  to  later.  Next,  you  can  synchronize  your  various  email  accounts.    You  do  not  have  to,  but  this  step  will  verify  other  fellow  tweeters  you  may  have  in  your  address  book  or  corporate  email.        Confirming  Email  Address  Now  you  will  be  asked  to  confirm  you  email  address  (the  one  you  signed  up  with),  go  to  your  email,  click  the  link  to  confirm  the  address  and  you  are  directed  back  to  the  Twitter  user  home  page.    You’ll  also  receive  an  email  “welcoming  you  to  Twitter.”    Now  you  can  begin  creating  a  professional  profile.      Note:    If  you  are  going  to  use  Twitter  just  for  searching  jobs,  don’t  bother  going  through  the  setting  up  the  picture,  description  of  you  process.    If  you  are  going  to  Tweet,  participate  in  chats,  then  set  up  the  entire  professional  profile.        Twitter  User  Profile  Page  Here’s  where  you  can  upload  your  professional  headshot,  a  link  to  your  visual  CV,  website,  blog  or  LinkedIn  and  add  a  short,  160  character  description  about  yourself.    If  you  are  a  job  seeker,  then  put  a  description  of  the  exact  title  you  are  seeking  and  the  type  of  company  you  are  seeking  employment  with.          Otherwise,  put  something  relevant  to  you  or  the  company  you  work  for.      Again,  if  you’re  still  working,  yet  prospecting,  take  care  because  people  will  find  of  follow  you.      Will.gladhart@gmail.com www.willgladhart.com cell: 562-881-4484

Digital & Social Media Marketing  You  also  have  the  option  of  posting  Tweets  to  your  personal  FB  page.    I  don’t  recommend  it,  your  friends  may  become  highly  annoyed  if  you  are  in  a  chat  session  and  there  are  20+  tweets  on  the  FB  wall  in  30  minutes.  Overload!    You  have  options  of  choosing  a  background,  determining  if  you  want  mobile  text  alerts  and  modifying  other  options  to  your  account.    Will  leave  those  for  you  to  explore  and  personalize.          Twitter  Data  Management  Options    TweetDeck  Tweet  Stream  Platform,  http://www.tweetdeck.com    HootSuite  Tweet  Stream  Platform,  http://www.hootsuite.com    Seesmic  Tweet  Stream  Platform,  http://www.seesmic.com    Note:    Seesmic  is  a  more  robust  than  TweetDeck  in  terms  of  streamed  content.    If  you  are  not  a  full  scale  Social  Media  Marketing  or  tools  user,  this  platform  might  be  a  little  overwhelming  than  you.    Seesmic  allows  the  user  to  populate  Twitter,  Facebook,  LinkedIn  feeds  as  well  as  CheckIn  streams  like  FourSquare  or  Gowalla.    Pretty  much  anything  that  is  online  and  has  a  social  media  or  RSS  feed  is  game.        SmartPhone  Apps  to  Manage  Twitter    Smartphone  Apps  for  iPhone    Twitbird  Pro  Twitter    TweetDeck  Seesmic    Top  5  Twitter  Apps  for  iPhone  (March  2011)  http://www.tipb.com/2011/03/05/top-­‐5-­‐twitter-­‐apps-­‐iphone/    Top  7  Android  Twitter  Apps    (February  2011)  http://www.zdnet.com/blog/mobile-­‐news/top-­‐7-­‐android-­‐twitter-­‐apps/1164    Will.gladhart@gmail.com www.willgladhart.com cell: 562-881-4484
