Twitter chat is an underrated marketing arsenal every business should be on. It is proven as an essential strategy to build trust, increase brand awareness, and enhance the relationship with your audience.
If you are wondering how to start your own Twitter chat, here and here are some great guides to follow.
WHSR has started our own hashtag #WHSRnetChat, reaching out to bloggers, influencers, individuals, brands, organizations, etc. to collect their views and feedback on topics related to blogging.
We started this Twitter chat campaign with a purpose – to help our readers build a better blog.
Let’s begin with our first Twitter question.
#WHSRnetChat Q1. What is your no 1 tip(s) to grow your blog in 2016?
2016 continues to be a challenging year for the blogging industry. With new guidelines from Google on how to rank better in searches, bloggers are expected to put in more hard work to achieve excellence.
One of the important element is the need to add a true level of authority to the content.
A blog should focus on providing better and more useful content to readers. In another words, bloggers may need to do more research and writer longer posts.
Here are some of the responses WHSR received to the question posed in our first Twitter Chat tweet:
produce good content and engage with readers. Also make a plan and work really hard.
You have to read articles, do in-depth research, plan your blog post, promote your blog, etc. Your schedule is packed! As such, you need tools to help you to do things better, especially to manage your social media.
Managing social presence is one of the important parts you can’t afford to lose. It is also true that managing social presence will consume much of your time and energy. We have @mentioned this question to bloggers and marketers and here are highlighted answers.
We have come up with some unofficial stats on this question. Take it as a reference if you have yet to decide which social media management tool to choose.
Hootsuite and Buffer are the two most popular social media management tools among our Twitter community. You can see the rest here.
In case you need some quick hacks, here’s what you need to know when you are using them.
You can link up all your social media accounts in one place and schedule your posts. Let Hootsuite work out when to send them out. You might want to save the useful posts to re-use later.
Buffer allows you to add RSS feed to your Buffer social profiles and share links directly from your blog. You can also optimize your Buffered timings with Tweriod in order to create a customized posting schedule.
It is a great tool when you manage multiple Twitter accounts. You can create a queue reservoir for your tweets. It helps you to schedule the same tweet written differently each time it is posted.
The interesting part to me is there are a lot of great tools worth mentioning. Most probably you don’t have enough time to explore them all.
Let see what other social media management tools the Twitter community is recommending.
hiya, I use Social Oomph and Tweetdeck but don’t use any tools for Facebook.
Here are some great social media tools to explore:
A powerful online website that helps you to grow your Twitter and Instagram account reach. From the website, you can see who has engaged the most with your account. It also helps you to find relevant users to follow.
It is a robust Twitter management tool to boost engagement and generates potential leads. You can track all your important interactions in your community within a dashboard. The best thing is, you can set and run different campaigns according to your own schedule.
It is simple to use. Just add all your updates to the library and create a posting schedule. Edger will use the updates in your library to create a queue. The best part is, it will “automagically” fill and refill itself and your updates is not going to waste.
Here are some points to conclude on our second question
