Social media provides marketers with the long sought after holy grail: direct access to the thoughts of the consumer and the ability to target content or advertisements to consumers based on interest, location, and other variables. Access to consumers' minds and the ability to target consumers in a highly calibrated manner is very useful when wanting to "sell stuff" in a cost effective manner.

Organic Marketing on Social Media: It's Not as Simple as We Thought.

Despite popular belief social media marketing isn't free advertising. It's also a lot more than simply crafting a "cool" post ("viral marketing" died off for a good reason).

Twitter is a real-time social network that allows you to communicate with people in 140 characters or less. Twitter gives you the ability to follow or be followed by other Twitter accounts in an asynchronous manner.

This means that if you follow a specific Twitter account they don’t necessarily need to follow you back in order for you to see their tweet stream. → Read More

‘I can’t follow you back because I’ve reached a limit.’

‘I’ll follow you back once I figure out why Twitter won’t let me follow anyone else.’

Sound familiar? Or maybe you have followed over 2,000 people on Twitter and then can’t follow anyone else. Well, guess what? You’re not stuck at following 2,000.

Let’s deconstruct.

Let's Get You Dressed For Business

The Twitter profile is an important and often overlooked element of a Twitter account. The content of a Twitter profile is even more important when it applies to an account that belongs to a business.

Steps to optimizing your Twitter profile

The benefits of optimizing* your Twitter profile include the following:

  1. With the right keywords, more people you want to find you will find you (because you will show up in search results)
  2. Most likely, a higher percentage of people who view your profile will follow you if you have a well crafted profile
  3. More people will take the actions you want them to take upon finding your profile (such as clicking through to your URL

4 Good Reasons It Makes Sense To Grow Your Twitter Follower Numbers

Editor's note: Evan Dunn is the Social Media Marketing Manager with Marketeering Group in Seattle, WA. He can be found on Twitter and LinkedIn.

 

Twitter follower growth provides concrete, measurable benefits for your digital marketing efforts. In order to prove this statement - and to respond to those who disagree with it - we need to first make an important distinction.

Fake Followers vs. Real Followers vs. Targeted Followers:

  1. Fake followers are fake Twitter users, usually "bots" (program-generated and program-run accounts). They generally have two purposes: to distribute spam links in order to get clicks to advertisements or malware, or to be sold as followers.
  2. Generic followers are - for the purposes of this post - generic non-fake Twitter users who are not necessarily interested in your brand.
  3. Targeted followers differ from real followers in that they are not only real but also interested in your brand. You know this because of what they choose to place in their Twitter bio or what they Tweet regularly. You can search for them using Manageflitter's "Account Search" or "Tweet Search" functions.

You get the best results the more targeted followers you have. But some of the following benefits also come from having more real followers . → Read More

ManageFlitter NEW PRO FEATURE!

Sometimes it is neccessary to block another Twitter user. 

Harassment by another Twitter user, or SPAM/bot/fake accounts following you may all be best dealt with by blocking.

According to information on Twitter's website blocked users cannot;

  • Add your Twitter account to their lists.
  • Have their @replies or mentions show in your mentions tab (although these Tweets may still appear in search).
  • Follow you.
  • See your profile picture on their profile page or in their timeline.

Twitter doesn't provide any direct way via the main or mobile Twitter.com site of reviewing a list of who you have blocked.

Twitter's rules, limits and regulations can at times be a little vague and confusing. These limits are put in place to stop people, businesses or automated programmes from abusing the Twitter network.  These rules are vague by design in order to prevent reverse engineering by parties who want to abuse the Twitter network.

Whilst these rules have been put in place by Twitter to prevent genuine abuse of their system, legitimate Twitter users can sometimes inadvertedly fall foul of these Twitter rules.

Having an understanding of some of these Twitter rules can help prevent your account getting suspended by Twitter.

Below we have listed 3 guidelines to help prevent your Twitter account from getting suspended by Twitter.  Please note that these guidelines apply regardless of whether you are using ManageFlitter to manage your Twitter account.

1. Introduction
 
If your information is publicly displayed anywhere on the internet, I can (and will) find it, and can (and will) find the perfect excuse to contact you, if you might buy what I’m selling.

To some people, this seems like a really annoying thing to do. But it’s not a bad practice in and of itself.

If the people I’m contacting want my product or service, then I’m doing them a favor. The transaction is mutually beneficial.

What does this have to do with job hunting?
