Twitter Tools for Business Building-Part 2

Twitter Tools for Business Building Part 2This is Part 2 of Twitter Tools for Business Building.

The best way to implement Twitter for lead generation is to first build a reputation as a trusted source of information or being seen as an expert in a particular subject-while simultaneously building relationships and remaining personal and approachable.

Pushing out one way marketing messages about your business isn’t going to work, people won’t listen. You must ask questions, be personal, and engage others naturally within the community.

Once you are the source of value and have earned their trust, you can then offer information about your business opportunity or service or affiliate products. Your followers now trust that whatever you recommend is going to be beneficial to them or their business. But only tweet these paying offers sparingly.

Also, a good technique is to do a series of tweets leading up to your offer or product or business opportunity. Intrigue them and peak their interest for a few days before you tweet your paying offer. (See Social Oomph post about scheduling your tweets).

OK, on to some more third party Twitter tools that you will find useful.

Twitter Tools for Business Building Part 2TweetDeck-

This is a desktop application which allows users to filter and group their own and others’ tweets. It can simplify things by separating the people you follow into groups that show up as columns on your screen—for instance, you might see one column for friends, one for prospects, one for co-workers, etc.  So if you are having multiple conversations, they will be much easier to follow in TweetDeck .

It also includes tracking tools that allow you to streamline functions like replying to multiple users at once.

You can add multiple Twitter accounts or LinkedIn, Facebook and MySpace accounts.

The iPhone version was released on June 16, 2009.

Twitter Tools for Business Building Part 2TwitPic -

This is a website that allows users to easily post pictures to Twitter.

If you have a Twitter account, you already have a TwitPic account automatically.

Comments to photographs are sent as a reply tweet.

Twitpic URLs are already short, making it unnecessary to use URL shortening.

You upload your picture via your phone, an iPhone app, or through a Web interface — and TwitPic posts a link to the picture to your Twitter account. So when you tweet it, it shows up as a shortened URL with your message. When users click the link they will be taken to your TwitPic profile to view it.

Twitter Tools for Business Building Part 2Bit.ly-

This is a URL shortner that can post directly to Twitter.

If you share a lot of links on Twitter, bit.ly makes it a fast process by letting you shorten the URL and post to Twitter within the same screen.

You can post to multiple Twitter accounts using one bit.ly account.

Bit.ly lets you attach a brief code to the shortened URL, which then allows you to track how many people click on the link. You can also see more-detailed information about those users, such as the country where they’re located and the time of day they clicked.

Day 3 of my Twitter Tools for Business Building series will discuss 3 online strategies that will help manage your online Twitter reputation by tracking what others are saying about you as well as locate keyword-targeted fellow twitters.

Twitter Tools For Business Building-Social Oomph

Twitter Tools For Business Building Social OomphTwitter is an extremely effective tool for free marketing and lead generation for your business. This is the first part of my 3 part series in which I will be writing about various third-party Twitter Tools which will help maximize exposure to your blog and your business. Whether you are a novice  or veteran Twitter-er, you will find your favorite tool and easily be able to implement it into your marketing efforts.

So on to Strategy #1….

Social Oomph (formerly tweetlater)-This is an incredible way to save time and boost your Twitter productivity by scheduling your tweets.

Some of the features I especially liked and that are included in the FREE version of this service are:

  • Schedule Tweets: Plan, set & Forget It! Like an autoresponder, you can keep your Twitter and StatusNet streams ticking over with new tweets even when you’re not in front of your computer. Publish tweets when you know your international followers are online and you’re asleep. An effective scheduling strategy is to prepare a series of tweets that lead up to a link you want your followers to click through.
  • Save and Re-Use Drafts: Save draft tweets, frequently used text snippets and URLs and reuse them in your scheduled tweets. Save tons of time by avoiding repetitive typing. Save a draft once and use it as a template for updates on Twitter and StatusNet accounts.
  • Send DM’s (Direct Messages) to new followers: Automatically send a nice non-promotional DM to new followers that focus on them and your future interaction with them, or simply to thank them for choosing to follow you.
  • URL shortening: This is an in-house URL shortening service, dld.bz, in which you can track the clicks on your shortened links, and get all kinds of useful and insightful click statistics.
  • Follow Those Who Follow You: Automatically follow people who follow you and save a ton of time while your Friends list builds itself.
  • Un-Follow Those Who Un-Follow You: Automatically unfollow someone when they unfollow you if that is how you prefer to manage your Friends list.
  • View @Mentions & Retweets: With more than one Twitter or StatusNet account it can become a real chore to keep track of your @mentions and everyone who has retweeted your tweets. They make it a breeze by showing your @mentions and/or retweets for all your accounts on one page, in one integrated timeline. Yes, that’s correct, you see your StatusNet tweets integrated with your Twitter tweets.
  • Private Tweet Viewing/Grouping Channels: With predefined tweet channels, you can view the tweets from selected breaking news sites, technology news sites, etc. grouped together for easy viewing of tweets that relate to a specific topic.

There is also a Professional version for the more advanced users of Twitter and who want to take this free marketing strategy even further.

This Pro version includes managing features of all your social accounts including a Facebook and ping.fm integration module, as well as your blog. Another very nice feature of Pro is that you are able to find quality friends to follow by using keywords and further organize and filter these friends. You can discover which of your friends is that special “power follower”  that has the most clout. It also has SPAM control, ability to manage several accounts and many other features.

The Pro version has a monthly fee of $29.97. However, there is also a 7-day free trial of the Pro version if you wanted to test drive it.

One other nice thing about Social Oomph is that they have an affiliate program that you can become a part of even if you sign up for the free account.

So I looked up the definition of  ‘oomph’, and it is actually a real word meaning ‘spirited vigor’ or ‘sex appeal’. So I thought it would be appropriate to say, “Get out there and get your Twitter Oomph on!”
