Follow Others

Not everyone you follow will follow you back. Famous people definitely won’t

or it’s unlikely! Who is likely to? Marketing people, people with a business

product or service who are also looking to expand their audience and network.

 

Engage

Get involved with the conversation. If you know about the topic of conversation

get involved and be friendly. If you want answers there are so many people to

ask or listen to.

 

Share Posts

If you share posts, or add favourable comments prior to sharing. This will

be appreciated as not only does it give the author more weight on Twitter

but also aids their Klout score and SEO efforts. Klout scores you for your

engagement level, frequency of posting and your reach across all social platforms.

 

Tweet Frequently but not too Often

Every time I tweet I find that I have an increase in folowers (only due to

the fact that I use # otherwise you will only be seen by your current followers)

If you tweet constantly through the day or your tweets are irrelevant or not credible.

People will stop following and you’ll lose rather than gain an audience.

 

Tweet about Topical Issues

There are numerous tools that you can use to keep up with popular topics.

Twilert – Can be used to email you daily to update what your competitors

are saying on Twitter. Or it can also be set to follow a keyword.

Tecnoratti – Can prompt you to the top blogs and posts that are popular.

Google Trends – Lets you know popular searches.

Google Alerts – Monitors the Web for interesting new content.

Linkedin Groups – Managers choice highlights popular posts and topics.

 

Use #

Try out # you think may be appropriate e.g. #socialmedia in the search bar to

check that it’s a relevant or being used. Then add relevant # in your Tweet.

I have always found this effective in increasing my followers and reaching an extended audience.

From PinClout to PinReach: The Startup for Pinterest Analytics

PinReach or the startup formerly known as PinClout specializes in analyzing the up-and-coming rise of Pinterest. While the whole name “cease-and-desist” issue with Klout over the use of PinClout has been the major talk of the industry for now, PinReach LLC is still a very much viable startup that aims to become the analytics startup to go to for Pinterest. The original name boiled down what they did in more simple terms which is basically to see your clout in Pinterest but PinReach LLC is still a good name as it offers a simplified look at your overall Pinterest social media reach.

    Founded by Chris Fay and Daniel Schimpfoessl, PinReach intends to become the Google Analytics for Pinterest. Pinterest’s marketing potential is one of the highest compared to some of the other new social media platforms and so far such tools for Pinterest analytics are almost non-existant. Originally, PinClout garnered more than 6000 users within two weeks of opening but with PinReach they are set to forge new ground even faster with a more robust infrastructure. According to their main site, “PinReach is your source for Pinterest analytics. We are working to empower people and brands with the tools necessary to monitor trends, understand activity, and gauge impact, easily. That, and you get a Reach score updated daily!”PinReach covers the overall statistics of Pinterest, identi

 fying your main influencers, how you influence others, trends and social impact with a simple to understand single Reach score for each section. It checks referral links like Google Analytics but also monitors your daily stats, providing analysis on the impact of your pins, repins and the pins of your fans and followers that point back to your main site. It also offers the ability to check on your competition with built-in functions such as Compete. All you need to do is enter your competitors Pinterest username and you can get a look at their PinReach score. The statistics are presented using simple graphs and numbers in bold font for the relevant scores with the average PinReach score being 29.
