Use # to try and promote a viral following for a specific topic • Engage followers and influencers by including @mention in your tweets that resonate with the influencer. Tweet + link + @mention + #topic – Vicki often does the @mention at the start which excludes her other followers. There is a private message option on Twitter which is a better option. Take a look at how Andrew Dempster used @mention. You need to be apart of the flow of information from one source to your audience. – Tweet events but include an action, some information or a quote – always question the value – Ian O‟Connor is often tweeting about events. He should contribute more to the conversation. A little self promotion is good but if your entire history is about you then you have got it wrong. 4-1-1 rule by the Content Marketing Institute. For every 1 self servicing tweet, retweet 1 relevant tweet and share 4 pieces of relevant content written by others. Most websites enable you to share their content.

The more you engage with your top influencers, the more they will continue to promote your content. – Vicki‟s influencers are Andrew Dempster (667 followers) , Joanna Mather AFR reporter, The Conversation, Kevin Rudd and a few MPs. Tweet Tips
    40. 40. Messaging • Make sure you are contributing to conversations? • Build relationships, reciprocate • Engage and be engaged • Be part of the flow of information • Don‟t be repetitive – Jan Thomas has often tweeted several times in a row about the same thing – Andrew Dempster tweets are varied – Vicki Thomson has a lot of emphasis on politics at the moment • Know what your influencers are tweeting about and respond accordingly • Create VALUE, retweet material to be helpful to your network, but write your own material too – Vicki Thomson is often retweeting or sharing other information and not writing her own material • Tweets can be a mixture of educational and entertaining and soft/hard promotion (come to Open Day vs. register for Open Day or download the schedule)
    41. 41. Following Tips • Import your contact databases • Follow people your competitors are following • Follow those your followers are following • Search for experts in the field tweeting • Establish a set of subjects you might be tweeting about and key terms used online – Scan Twitter or Google to find out the key terms being used use these as #topics • Spend some time trying out different searches and # that are relevant. When you find the people contributing most to the conversation, follow them. • Find people talking about the Uni, industry or subjects you are interested in • Try and follow back those following you • Read the tweets of those following you and search for keywords relevant to you
    42. 42. Followers • Becoming someone‟s follower accomplishes four goals: – You are identifying accounts that will be relevant and interesting to you, the Uni and the sector – You let people know you are on Twitter, and encourage them to follow you back – You associate yourself with a specific group of industry experts and thought leaders, demonstrate your interest in the space – You are getting to know influencers and they are getting to know you • Easier than starting a conversation at a cocktail party but remember the relationship can be paper thin. – Don‟t clutter your newsfeed if you don‟t like someone‟s content unfollow them

Create a list • University newsrooms • Media, journalists (higher ed and overseas) • Business leaders Rupert Murdoch, Bill Gates • Ministers • University Networks – here and overseas • Associations • LinkedIn influencers • People in LinkedIn discussion groups
