Even if I am being a little shouty! 😉 Ensure your content is 'social first' and of high quality, consider what will make your audience stop scrolling! #TwitterSmarter https://t.co/FFpPM5E0TZ

— Elizabeth KW (@LizzyRoseKnight) August 30, 2018

A2. The first thing to remember is do not automate your engagement in an inauthentic way. People can tell when you’re just copying/pasting a message

Once you’ve nailed that, dig into relevant hashtags or search terms. Find existing communities. #TwitterSmarter pic.twitter.com/gfgXEcN1Mm

— Lisa 👩🏼‍💻I like big gifs & I cannot lie (@lisaboylesmedia) August 30, 2018

A2. There are SO many tools available through #SMM that can target an ideal audience. Facebook ads have done a great job on pin-point accuracy when targeting those interested in your business. Twitter still needs a little work as far as location based targeting. #TwitterSmarter

— Cortez Brothers (@cortezbrothers) August 30, 2018

A2: The 2 most important I would say is 1) HASHTAGS! They are the heart beat to your tweet, and that is how your tweet can be seen my everyone! 2) The people you follow and the followers you are attracting. They should be within your industry! #twittersmarter

— kununu US (@kununu_US) August 30, 2018

— Madalyn Sklar 🚀 Digital Marketing Coach (@MadalynSklar) August 30, 2018

A3 – we helped one client use Snapchat in it earlier days to make $11,000 in just 10 days which arose to $67,000 over the following eight weeks, all about being innovative new technology #twittersmarter https://t.co/D9WKR0gxYq

— Tristan Griffiths #ImTristanG (@ImTristanG) August 30, 2018

A3: Do something that no one else is doing. Find your lane. It's easier to be the best at something no one is doing than something that's already done.#twittersmarter

— CHARGE (@CHARGEgoforward) August 30, 2018

A3. All content needs to be relative. Know your audience, and give them relatable info. #TwitterSmarter pic.twitter.com/9KJGPHwr6q

— Tamara (@itstamaragt) August 30, 2018

A3: Show people YOU, the person or team behind all of the efforts. •

Above all, I know that we should "always be closing" — but it never hurts to be nice to someone who might never convert into a client / customer. That ultimately says a lot about you 🙂 #twittersmarter https://t.co/Aiot9PZeQY

— Raquel Serrano ⚓ (@raquelserrano_) August 30, 2018

A3 Whenever possible, create content that highlights other people and give them credit. When publicizing what you produce, do it on an assortment of platforms, making sure to tag your subjects each time. #TwitterSmarter

— Tim Elliott (@TimElliottUK) August 30, 2018

A3

Create, curate and interact consistently.

Repurpose your content for each channel.#TwitterSmarter https://t.co/jZy3w02yz1

— Alberto Gómez (@alberMoire) August 30, 2018

A3: Polls are good on Facebook and Twitter. I have had some success with question posts with multiple choice answers. It’s quicker and easier for someone to post A, B or C than to think up an response at times #TwitterSmarter

— Suze Cooper (@BigTentSocial) August 30, 2018

A3 : As context, my target audience is intersection of IT/Energy Industry … What I find works best is original 'interesting' picture/selfie/video in front of new tech, a cool location photo that's different … otherwise your post could get lost in the noise … #TwitterSmarter

— Kevin O'Donovan (@Kevin_ODonovan) August 30, 2018

A3: Perhaps not “innovative” any longer but…– join in on chats where you can contribute & meet new people– use videos in your tweets, or a picture, at least (not just a text)– be a guest on a chat or podcast, co-host (or host) a chat,#TwitterSmarter https://t.co/EwKSEVdfkX

— Madalyn Sklar 🚀 Digital Marketing Coach (@MadalynSklar) August 30, 2018

— Shannah Hayley (@shannahhayley) August 30, 2018

A4. I'd say listen to your audience. As you develop your brand, you will receive input from your audience, never take that for granted. Listen to what they have to say and see if you can build ideas off of them. They are the secret weapon to growth! #TwitterSmarter

— Christopher Tompkins (@chrisgoagency) August 30, 2018

A4: Good funnel maintenance. Know where your audience is at, give them what they need at each step to go from awareness to closing. @hubspot is our favorite for this.#TwitterSmarter

— CHARGE (@CHARGEgoforward) August 30, 2018

A4: You have to focus on providing value and establishing a trusting relationship first. Don't immediately start pitching people on your product/service. #TwitterSmarter

— Express Writers (@ExpWriters) August 30, 2018

A4: Play the long game. Don't instantly ask for sales. People will buy from you anyway if they like you. #TwitterSmarter

— Kristina Adams (@KristinaAuthor) August 30, 2018

A4: I just ask. You have their attention. Ask what was it you said that appealed to them (because there's so much more where that came from). #TwitterSmarter

— Shawn Paul Wood (@ShawnPaulWood) August 30, 2018

A4: Listen to their needs, provide them with value, provide them with offers, and have strong CTA's where applicable. #twittersmarter

— Tamara (@itstamaragt) August 30, 2018

A4: Having clear & concise CTA's that are easy to understand & follow. Don't go overly "salesy" with it. People don't want to be sold — But they are willing to buy. Make it intising to where they have F.O.M.O syndrome #TwitterSmarter https://t.co/JNObQw7S4m

— Eddie Garrison (@EddieGarrison) August 30, 2018

A4: Dont' be spammy, be relevant, be consistent & add value. Ensure your social content is either gated or has a clear CTA so that your efforts fit perfectly into your overall customer journey / experience. #TwitterSmarter https://t.co/XIbeJQzZcU

— Elizabeth KW (@LizzyRoseKnight) August 30, 2018

A4: taking time to nurture relationships. For example video replies work well #TwitterSmarter

— Nicole Osborne 🍭 #SweetLikeSocial (@Lollipop_Social) August 30, 2018

A4: We look at our social media feeds as a voice and brand rather than just a flow of information. When people hear our voice and lean in closer to hear more by following us, then we are on a road to a relationship (that then sometimes converts into a lead). #TwitterSmarter

— Cortez Brothers (@cortezbrothers) August 30, 2018

A4. Create or identify their needs, learn who they are and respond personally. Insert yourself with quality service through promotion of ideas and solutions. Be of #Value #TwitterSmarter pic.twitter.com/mOLTcf7Ue3

— Dr. Dorrie Cooper (@sittingpretty61) August 30, 2018

A4: I really don’t look at social in terms of sales. Social is where I show what I do and love and I build and nurture relationships. Working this way I have had several leads and opportunities come my way #twittersmarter

— Suze Cooper (@BigTentSocial) August 30, 2018

A4: Give out something for free, such as tips, and ask them to sign up for more by visiting your website or subscribing to something you offer, then go from there. #TwitterSmarter

— Cindy Li (@ckyli) August 30, 2018

Q5: What marketing strategies can help you leverage UGC (user-generated content)? #TwitterSmarter pic.twitter.com/jlhOBeLUTE

— Madalyn Sklar 🚀 Digital Marketing Coach (@MadalynSklar) August 30, 2018

— Laura Pence Atencio (@SocialSavvyGeek) August 30, 2018

— Madalyn Sklar 🚀 Digital Marketing Coach (@MadalynSklar) August 30, 2018

A5 competitions are fantastic way to create even more user generated content however if you have a strong brand users will want to create it for you with no encouragement so concentrate on providing value as a #brand first !! #twittersmarter https://t.co/NgV6Pzs9IA

— Tristan Griffiths #ImTristanG (@ImTristanG) August 30, 2018

A5: If your business sells a tangible product you potentially give some followers free product and have them post it on social and RT. But if you sell intangibles then maybe you can look into testimonials and RT those! #TwitterSmarter

— kununu US (@kununu_US) August 30, 2018

A5. Use a competition to get it started. People are more receptive to sharing if they get something out of it. #TwitterSmarter pic.twitter.com/y348ieYli7

— Lisa 👩🏼‍💻I like big gifs & I cannot lie (@lisaboylesmedia) August 30, 2018

✨💫 It’s a Win-Win-Win! 💫✨

#TwitterSmarter

— Lori Anding👑 Smallbiz Social Media Advocate (@southbaysome) August 30, 2018

— Laura Pence Atencio (@SocialSavvyGeek) August 30, 2018

A6: We pretty much run everything through @Apple and @Google ecosystems and @Sanebox keeps my inbox near zero. It easily sorts and prioritizes email so that my assistant can spend her time on more high value tasks. #TwitterSmarter

— Laura Pence Atencio (@SocialSavvyGeek) August 30, 2018

A6: @Crowdfire and @Triberr help us find quality content to share that gets great engagment, shares, and clickthroughs. We aren't about vanity here. We want results. 😉 #TwitterSmarter

A6: Here's a few: @ManageFlitter @AgoraPulse @nuzzel @VideoshopApp #TwitterSmarter https://t.co/ZHWl4gjlvy

— Madalyn Sklar 🚀 Digital Marketing Coach (@MadalynSklar) August 30, 2018

A6: Not necessarily a marketing tool, but a great one in general: CALENDARS! I love @sunsamaHQ because it allows me to add tasks, events, and reminders! It helps me better manage my social, graphic design and PR projects! #TwitterSmarter

— Katie Orong (@ncs_katie) August 30, 2018

#Twittersmarter a6 Using Tweetdeck & Hootsuite are great because you can have a column for hashtags and whether you use it for a chat like this or just monitoring your brand, it's easy to use.

— QuestLearningOnline (@ArdellaQuest) August 30, 2018

A6:@canva for quick and easy design@SproutSocial for scheduling and analytics@teambiteable for animated videos@PomodoroTech for productivity#twitterSmarter

— CHARGE (@CHARGEgoforward) August 30, 2018

A6: Most shceduling tools such as Hootsuite, Sprout, Buffer, etc. all have Social Listening modules. Keeping your eyes there will tell you who & where your best advocates are talking about your brand on Social Media #TwitterSmarter https://t.co/Vr10dwC4MF

— Eddie Garrison (@EddieGarrison) August 30, 2018

A6: Of course I'm going to say @hootsuite when it comes to an integrated social marketing strategy, but in the name of shaking it up @answerthepublic is an awesome tool that really helps you understands questions being asked around particular topics! #TwitterSmarter pic.twitter.com/pRXUvu4srS

— Elizabeth KW (@LizzyRoseKnight) August 30, 2018

A6: @canva I can't live without that one! @LumenFive is pretty useful too! #TwitterSmarter

— Bug Bear Marketing (@bugbeardigital) August 30, 2018

A6: The go-tos would be GA (Google Analytics) and scheduling ones such as CoSchedule and Buffer. But another which we use for priority purposes is Trello! There are MANY more but these are my favorite..and they are cost effective (most are free)! #twittersmarter

— kununu US (@kununu_US) August 30, 2018

A6: I'm finally in a place business-wise where I could invest in @CoSchedule! It's the drag-and-drop scheduler I always wanted 💕

Check out my real review (+bonus) on my blog: https://t.co/CTPS6NMfqI #twittersmarter https://t.co/TjWemdCzQw

— Raquel Serrano ⚓ (@raquelserrano_) August 30, 2018

A6: We use @MeetEdgar for scheduling. In terms of analytics, built-in analytics from Twitter and Facebook are very helpful. #TwitterSmarter

— Express Writers (@ExpWriters) August 30, 2018

A6 @hootsuite @canva @buffer @wavve @anchor @vidIQ All game changers right now! 🙌 #TwitterSmarter

— Andy Church 📸 aka Red Beard (@wrestlingandy) August 30, 2018

A6: I use @ContentStudioio and love it. @airtable isn't a marketing tool per se but it's super useful to keep everything organized #TwitterSmarter

— Cecilia M. (@cmoraleswrites) August 30, 2018

A6: Of course budget comes into play for some small biz but– @TweetDeck for Twitter– @canva and @AdobeSpark for graphics– @bruceleetags for hashtags– @apple clips for videoSo many that are useful, just a few that I like#TwitterSmarter https://t.co/EzArSKx5jF

A6. @Buffer App@Hootsuite@CoSchedule @PostPlanner @hashtagify @Stencil#TwitterSmarter

A6. Cool tools for social:

👉@Hootsuite and @Planoly for scheduling👉@Trello for planning. 👉@canva and @picmonkey for images and graphics👉@Filmora_Editor and @imovie for video editing#TwitterSmarter

A6.– Scheduling tools for productivity (@Buffer/@hootsuite)– Analytics to check on effectiveness– Visual tools (@canva/@teameasil/@PicMonkey) – Link shorteners (so useful for link tracking)– A great ESP like @MailChimp – Content research tools ➼ @semrush #TwitterSmarter

Q7: What are some mistakes businesses make in trying to build their online presence? #TwitterSmarter pic.twitter.com/57UDizkJPY

— Madalyn Sklar 🚀 Digital Marketing Coach (@MadalynSklar) August 30, 2018

A7: Trying to go it alone is a huge mistake. Coaches, mentors, and masterminds all have key roles in building smart and scaling. #TwitterSmarter

— Laura Pence Atencio (@SocialSavvyGeek) August 30, 2018

A7: Not having a business plan, marketing plan, or budget for your business is crazy! You save so much time, energy, and money by planning ahead. #TwitterSmarter

— Laura Pence Atencio (@SocialSavvyGeek) August 30, 2018

A7: Waiting too long to bring in outside help is common. You can outsource so many things effectively. Stay in your genius and get help with the stuff you don't love. #TwitterSmarter

— Laura Pence Atencio (@SocialSavvyGeek) August 30, 2018

A7: I've seen Subject Matter Experts who undervalue themselves and wait longer than they should to step into their influence. It's okay to put yourself out there. #TwitterSmarter

— Laura Pence Atencio (@SocialSavvyGeek) August 30, 2018

A7: Done is better than perfect. You are human. Own that and show up! Be consistent. Way too many people just simply give up. #TwitterSmarter

— Laura Pence Atencio (@SocialSavvyGeek) August 30, 2018

A7: Biggest mistake – wanting it all now. It takes time. No one is an overnight success on social media. It takes time. Work it every day. Stay on track. Have a plan and get back to me in a few years. You'll be a rockstar. #TwitterSmarter https://t.co/x9ns0xQIIT

— Madalyn Sklar 🚀 Digital Marketing Coach (@MadalynSklar) August 30, 2018

A7: Trying to build an audience of 1 million in 1 day. Build the right way, which isn't usually the fastest way.

Also jumping in on every freakin' hashtag holiday. Do the ones relevant to you, not every one that trends.#TwitterSmarter

— CHARGE (@CHARGEgoforward) August 30, 2018

A7 – lack of research and thinking that everything is about them.

When you make it all about the other person, that is when the magic really happens on #socialmedia

#twittersmarter

— Tristan Griffiths #ImTristanG (@ImTristanG) August 30, 2018

A7: Failing to engage with their audience. If you aren't responding to people, you're missing out. #TwitterSmarter

— Express Writers (@ExpWriters) August 30, 2018

A7 Businesses go online with the intent to sell from the start — not understanding that social media is called social for a reason. Those who get the hang of it, will sell eventually after building relationships first. #TwitterSmarter

— Jim Katzaman – Get Debt-Free One Family at a Time (@JKatzaman) August 30, 2018

A7: IMO, pushing for a sale as soon as the initial connection has been made, particularly via auto DM’s. Depending on the content of the DM & the quality of the connection, I have stopped following some, immediately after the DM. #TwitterSmarter https://t.co/6lzF1lcwYx

— Mark Carruthers (@MarkC_Avgi) August 30, 2018

A7: In my experience, just posting randomly without a strategy for visibility — it's like yelling at a wall.

Easily the fastest way to grow frustrated in the business world. #twittersmarter https://t.co/6SUSEbAFPZ

— Raquel Serrano ⚓ (@raquelserrano_) August 30, 2018

A7: Joining every social platform immediately, without doing research or creating a strategy for content, distro or engagement! It's easy to think 'being on social' means being EVERYWHERE, but it's about being in the RIGHT place – where your target audience is! #TwitterSmarter pic.twitter.com/oDzTA7UhJZ

— Elizabeth KW (@LizzyRoseKnight) August 30, 2018

A7: Constantly selling without first offering any real value. #TwitterSmarter

— Kristina Adams (@KristinaAuthor) August 30, 2018

A7: They send auto DMs which is not a good practice. They try to do too much and get ahead of themselves sometimes leaving their audience confused #TwitterSmarter

— Justin Bienvenue, #ModernDayPoe (@JustinBienvenue) August 30, 2018

A7) They join irrelevant engagement groups and get too "spammy." #twittersmarter

— Roxanne (@rescuemom_nyc) August 30, 2018

A7: Relentless self-promotion is great content for you (and your mom), but you need to widen your messaging if you want more of an audience. #TwitterSmarter pic.twitter.com/xkySid1vGn

— Cortez Brothers (@cortezbrothers) August 30, 2018

a7 no strategy is the #1 mistake. i see it all the time: people / brands don't know why, what, when, how… they don't think or research. being on SM takes more than creating a profile. #twittersmarter

— Joana Rita Sousa 🦄 💩💎 (@JoanaRSSousa) August 30, 2018

A7: They copy others without adding personality – they blast without engaging – they annoy with irrelevant, useless, boring or too much content #TwitterSmarter pic.twitter.com/o7EcK5lpkE

— Sabrina Cadini (@SabrinaCadini) August 30, 2018

A7 starting off thinking communications & digital is marketing when it's one part of marketing … strategy 1st ! #twittersmarter https://t.co/clnJNhfirO

— Tim Elliott (@TimElliottUK) August 30, 2018

A7. The number of users you follow means nothing if they aren't within your audience. It's much more likely your content shows up in their feed and they skip right by it. If I was a barber and I used Twitter for that, I wouldn't care at all about #SMM accounts. #TwitterSmarter

— Justin Nartowicz (@JustinNartowicz) August 30, 2018

A7: Not posting consistently and only talking about themselves. The biggest mistake is assigning the wrong person to do the job, such as the boss, who does whatever they want without any #marketing knowledge; or the intern who doesn’t know much about the business. #TwitterSmarter

— Cindy Li (@ckyli) August 30, 2018

A7. – I'd imagine trying to be 'all things to all people" instead of finding their niche– Posting onto social media and not engaging with their audience– Seeing social media as a 'magic pill'– A lack of consistency and patience. It takes time! #TwitterSmarter

— Virtuoso Assistant 📩 🎨 (@VirtuosoAssist) August 30, 2018

Q8: What are your top tips for building your brand online? #TwitterSmarter pic.twitter.com/KRmcV0tqPB

— Madalyn Sklar 🚀 Digital Marketing Coach (@MadalynSklar) August 30, 2018

A8: Value your business from the beginning. Invest in your brand strategy. Have brand standards that allow you to present an intentional, consistent brand voice. #TwitterSmarter

— Laura Pence Atencio (@SocialSavvyGeek) August 30, 2018

A8: Your brand may grow and change over time. Do the best you can with what you have and keep improving over time. #TwitterSmarter

— Laura Pence Atencio (@SocialSavvyGeek) August 30, 2018

A8: Make sure that the brand you develop aligns with the audience you are attempting to attact. Just because you like something doesn't mean it will work. #TwitterSmarter

— Laura Pence Atencio (@SocialSavvyGeek) August 30, 2018

A8: Just because you can doesn't mean you should. Oursource your weakest skills as soon as you can, whether that's graphic design, copy writing, etc. #TwitterSmarter

— Laura Pence Atencio (@SocialSavvyGeek) August 30, 2018

A8: Overpromotion. It's not all about you. Make it that way and your audience will find someone else. #TwitterSmarter

— Laura Pence Atencio (@SocialSavvyGeek) August 30, 2018

A8: My top tips on building your brand online:

✔ be consistent✔ have a clear message✔ know your audience✔ start building your email list today✔ stay the course#TwitterSmarter https://t.co/ENujDiW3st

A8: They make it all about them. Engage with your audience, share content from others, don't just become a link farm. #twittersmarter

— Tamara (@itstamaragt) August 30, 2018

A8. I think patience is key. Don't get discouraged. Find your crew/tribe/network. Be plugged in. Support each other and grow together. No need for a competition mindset. Collaboration is the key these days. #TwitterSmarter

— Gene Petrov – headed to #INBOUND18 next week (@GenePetrovLMC) August 30, 2018

A8: Find a common theme of content, and being consistent. That way when an audience sees more of the same from you they can put a name to that content, and that creates more value and retention! #TwitterSmarter

— kununu US (@kununu_US) August 30, 2018

A8: Consistent @ handles, consistent brand voice, consistent frequency. Consistency is big. Also creating content that people WANT, not just stuff that you're trying to push. #TwitterSmarter

— CHARGE (@CHARGEgoforward) August 30, 2018

A8: Commit to taking your time, things don't just 'go viral' or happen overnight. Plan & respect your content pillars and what you stand for, listen to your audience and action feedback. Lastly – remember social is a 2-way convo so be prepared to chat! #TwitterSmarter https://t.co/IrovjoQ0Et

— Elizabeth KW (@LizzyRoseKnight) August 30, 2018

A8. In the words of Hamilton:“check it against your list and see, CONSISTENCY” ✋🎤 #TwitterSmarter pic.twitter.com/o78y6aKweH

— Lisa 👩🏼‍💻I like big gifs & I cannot lie (@lisaboylesmedia) August 30, 2018

A8: Be kind, no matter your industry or niche. Nowadays, social media can be such an angry place. Let your channel be a resting place for your audience 🌿 #twittersmarter https://t.co/q94Yp8qmDZ

— Raquel Serrano ⚓ (@raquelserrano_) August 30, 2018

A8 To build your brand online, be you. You are the product you're selling personally and professionally. Then be available and a trusted source of good information that will make your audience want more. #TwitterSmarter

— Jim Katzaman – Get Debt-Free One Family at a Time (@JKatzaman) August 30, 2018

a8– find your tone of voice– adapt that tone to each platform, taking advantage of their uniqueness– try new things– remember: you have to give, first – you'll receive later– don't usain bolt yourself: it's a long run– have fun– be authentic#twittersmarter

— Joana Rita Sousa 🦄 💩💎 (@JoanaRSSousa) August 30, 2018

A8: Consistency in your look/brand/voice. The endurance to see your goals through. Embrace what makes you unique. #TwitterSmarter https://t.co/iRpSzN0aFE

— Candice Champlin ⚕+🐾=💕 (@CandiceChamplin) August 30, 2018

A8. Consistency builds trust, which builds relationships, which in turn create opportunities #TwitterSmarter

— Caroline Webb 😊 Socialeyes for results (@uk_socialeyes) August 30, 2018

A8: Consistency, but also authenticity. Especially if you're building your own brand. It's easier to be consistent if you're not pretending to be someone you're not or trying to make a brand work with a voice that doesn't represent it #TwitterSmarter

— Cecilia M. (@cmoraleswrites) August 30, 2018

A8: Engage, Engage, Engage– Be yourself– Listen to your audience– Keep on top of changes#TwitterSmarter https://t.co/JbOeUC4GQT

— Jim Fuhs Digital Marketing Consultant #SMMW19 (@FuhsionMktg) August 30, 2018

A8: Build on your own speed, use time wisely and make the most of any opportunity you get to help build your brand #TwitterSmarter

— Justin Bienvenue, #ModernDayPoe (@JustinBienvenue) August 30, 2018

A8: Understand that it takes time to build a brand even with a great strategy. Don’t set overly high expectations like thinking once you start up an account to post, your business will skyrocket in no time. #TwitterSmarter

— Cindy Li (@ckyli) August 30, 2018

A8.– You CAN grow your business organically but it takes time 🌱– Use visual content to grab eyeballs online 📸 – Be consistent with your brand style and be true to your own personality– Don't copy others – it won't work– Do what you LOVE 💖#TwitterSmarter
