Alas some sweet sweet brevity within the whirlwind world of Social Media.
3 effective Twittering tips that are real quick to implement:
Put your Twitter bio to good use: people check out your Twitter bio before following you. So make it good. Make it fun. Make it real. Choose words wisely, use the max available. Include your picture.
Include an image in your tweet. Of course you want your tweet shared, but first you have to get people to read it. In a recent split test conducted by @Buffer, tweets with pictures received 18% more clicks, 89% more favourites & 150% more retweets.
Engage with others on Twitter. Don’t just build it and wait for followers to come. Find, follow, like, retweet and instigate interesting Twitter conversations.
What can I say? I enjoy coming up with lists of ATTENTION grabbing words. Which happens to be a good thing when you’re into Social Media.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again and probably again a few times after that. Words do matter! They should jump out at you.
Here is today’s list of whacky attention grabbers.
Notice the theme? Yup, suggestions from a thesaurus for the word wacky/whacky. Let’s see what else can I share in 49 words or less? I know, here’s a terrific #Twitter tip from @KimGarst. “Make your Tweets stand out – be funny, poignant, or otherwise unique”.
The way I figure it is, if I’m myself when I tweet then I know I’m being “otherwise unique”.
Social Media may be all the rage over video right now. Tweets with pictures are wayyy more engaging than those without. Opened and read newsletter e-mails can deliver powerful results BUT bottom line is the “words” you choose to use.
They get the click or they don’t.
Words have to SCREAM read me. Words are the central driving force behind getting the response you want to your calls to action.
Tweeting has taught me how to make my point using carefully chosen attention grabbing words. A combination of powerful words that gets people to read and react. Fun words that encourage engagement.
BUZZ! BUZZ! My mind is a buzz with so many social media buzz words. Maybe it’s time for a little breather? Hmmm I wonder. Does blogging my little social media rant count? It’s a slippery slope.
I’ve decided that I’m allowing myself 140 words then no more #SocialMedia speak. How best to summarize? Must think carefully. I’ve already reached the halfway mark.
So, what’s been happening on the social media front this month? EVERYTHING!!! If I had to narrow it down to the top three buzz words being bantered around on social media I would have to say video, video and more video.
Eeeek only 27 words left to. April’s been a busy month in social media. Many exciting changes but at the same time WOW the energy it takes keeping up.
