Batchbook is how we manage our blogger and media lists currently -- moving soon to GroupHigh for bloggers. Allows us to create a list, bloggers in general or by subtopic, e.g. green bloggers, mommy bloggers -- and export it.
What we did with the Fission account was then upload them into Groups So we can monitor what our target groups of bloggers are saying And when we're promoting a campaign -- we can actually search for a set of keywords within that set of bloggers to see who is talking about it Very similar to what you'd do for blogger research in general when promoting a campaign, but this is within a smaller group of bloggers we're trying to keep engaged over time, build a relationship.
The live feed in itself is not a lot of information, but if you make a habit of scanning through that daily -- segmenting by top activists and donors if you have those segments -- look at a few pages -- and you'll notice right away when something starts to catch on. Pay attention to themes, HOW people are talking about an issue. Right now, the top words and hashtags are all-time. In the next week or two, we'll be adding a filter by week and month -- so you can see how these are changing, what's popular NOW.
Do this every day -- search for the terms you're trying to promote (your org and campaign) and retweet 3-5 supporters.
once you have the lists in place, it only takes a couple of minutes per day to ensure you're keeping your best supporters and most critical media targets -- engaged on Twitter (and Facebook)
if you only have a few min/day - you can schedule these at the best times to tweet... (yes, there's a little penalty for posting from apps, but it's worth it)
