Twitter Tools for Maximum Productivity
Twitter has many tools available to improve productivity, but it’s hard to determine which ones are the best.
For me, two features are very important; the ability to schedule tweets in the future and to coordinate a separate message for my Facebook business page.
Ultimately my goal is to build the number of followers I have who may be receptive to my message. I’ve written about methods to increase followers in the past and having the right tools to acheive this goal is of utmost importance.
Over the past few months, I’ve been trying very hard to find the right Twitter toolset and I believe I’ve finally got it.
I use Twitjump to schedule tweets and get followers and there are similar tools out there. What sets this software apart is you can add people by keyword and get analytics on how many times a particular word is searched or tweeted on Twitter.
To complete my toolset, I use Hootsuite to schedule Facebook updates. That is the only missing piece of Twitjump. So I can schedule tweets through either software, but need to use Hootsuite to schedule for Facebook.
Both pieces of software have URL shorteners to save time and space and both are free. I learned about Twitjump, which is still in Beta, at the Utah Stompernet meetup and I asked around quite a bit before trying Hootsuite.
No matter which tools you use, if you don’t have a strategy, your social media campaign won’t be successful. Ultimately, the goal is to get in front of you prospect, customer or client. I read this article yesterday about a Tweetup in New Zealand –
I went to my first Tweetup on Friday night and had a ball. It was the first NZ National Tweetup and it was just fantastic. Over the past couple of months I have been developing relationships with some great people, and it was wonderful to meet so many of them face to face….and we had such fun!
For me, this was proof that Twitter is a fantastic tool for developing great relationships – personal and business.
That is the key to social media. No Twitter tool, as great as it may be, is a substitute for actually connecting with people in real life. If you’re looking for tools to help you on Twitter, I highly recommend Twitjump and Hootsuite.
