Lately I have been again playing around with Twitter. One thing to do on Twitter is to get followers, second thing is to compose tweets. It can be vice verse as well (Actually it should).
Since your Twitter followers are growing you start realizing that not only you are getting more followers, but your followers are following way too more Twitter accounts. And if you keep posting once in a day, there is huge possibility that nobody will hear you.
Of course this depends on many factors, including what is the reason you tweet - is it just for fun, or is it to drive new visitors to your website, or just keeping up with your follow mates. It indeed depends. But in case you are using Twitter to drive more visits to your site, you are thinking of more ways to a little to automatic this process.
There are many options out there, to help you automatize your Twitter stuff. I will name few of them - Hootsuite or Tweetdeck.
For now I personally prefer Tweetdeck over other solutions. There is no plain reason why it's so, but it's so.
Perhaps it's because of I'm using just one Twitter account, and Tweetdeck is created by Twitter itself.
View from my Tweetdeck account with scheduled posts
With help of Tweetdeck I'm scheduling my tweets to next 24 hours, but I'm not limited to it. I just like to observe quick results in my Google Analytics.
With Tweetdeck you can
- use #hashtags
- Add Photos to your tweets
Few tips using Tweetdeck
- If you have tons of followers schedule your tweets after every 10/15/20 minutes.
- Use #hashtags
- Repeat your tweets 4-5 times in a day
- Repeat your tweets after every 5-6 hours
Your Tweedteck habits may be different depending on your needs. I have found using Tweetdeck with repeated tweets over a day + in combination with hash tags very powerful way to drive more traffic to my blog and other sites.
