The Twitter Shepherd


I’m trying Ringo. I’m trying real hard to be the Twitter shepherd

 

I admit I am not the greatest at Twitter. But I’m trying Ringo. I’m trying real hard to be the Twitter shepherd, and to lead you to better results from your Twitter interactions.

Here are a couple of articles to help us learn.

Twitter Infographics

My friend ComplexVisuals has sent me a link to Lori Taylor’s article “5 Twitter Infographics That Make CENTS.”

The first one is really interesting, showing that most Twitter users don’t use Twitter.  I think people who are into Twitter are really into Twitter, but I also think it should be an element of your social media plan that you work on only after you have a successful Facebook strategy going.

That said, her second infographic asserts that “Twitter done right can have more impact on your brand than Facebook.” Some stats that Taylor pulls out:

  • 17 percent of Facebook users are more likely to purchase from a brand after “liking” it.
  • 21 percent of Facebook users are more likely to recommend a brand after “liking” their page.
  • 37 percent of Twitter users are more likely to purchase from a brand after becoming a follower.
  • 33 percent of Twitter users are more likely to recommend a brand after becoming a follower.

Some interesting ideas going on here.  Please check out the article and let me know your thoughts on Twitter and where it fits into the social media plan.

One Big Mistake

While we’re on the Twitter topic, please take a look at Likable Media’s “Stop Making This One Mistake On Twitter.”

It notes a big error that many of us are making when we start our posts with the @ symbol.  Remember, even if you are doing it to give a shout out, putting @ at the beginning changes your tweet into a more or less private tweet.

We cool? Until next time…
