#Twitter Rocks, So why ARE Your Tweets BLOCKED? [Infographic]

Twitter

 

We are in an age of information sharing, transparency and engagement. You select to involve yourself with social media, with the goal of sharing information, engaging and having people share with you, right. Ok so your Tweets are BLOCKED, Private or whatever the hell they are? Why bother?

 

I understand it as much as I am possibly capable of if Twitter is used for personal usage. Umm…ok, I’m lying I really don’t but lets pretend I do just so I won’t get hate mail and hate comments. LOL.  I have only run across this a few times and I always wonder why a person would even bother to use Twitter under these circumstances. I really REALLY don’t understand it if business people chose to go this route.

 

As I am very transparent in business and personal practices I would never use a service that I felt as if I couldn’t utilize in a transparent way.  With Facebook there are options in place to allow certain degrees of privacy according to who is following. Under those circumstances I guess I understand to a certain degree, because information that you’d like to share with family and friends may differ from what you would want to share with business colleagues.  So maybe this is the same sort of thing?

This blog post is a way for me to gain an understanding of the need to block Tweets?  More of a way to find out why? Are you curious too? Well lets open the door of dialogue.

In the meantime, take a look at the Funny Twitter Infographic below and think about what kind of Twitter user you are.

#Triberr: 8 Steps To Being A Great Tribe Mate

Triberr

 

I found out about Triberr a few months ago after being invited to a group by Michael Q Todd, before then I had heard very little about it. I must admit that I was a bit skeptical about it initially but there were so many amazing people from my social circles involved that I thought what the heck, let me check it out too.  I had just moved my blog from Posterous to WordPress and lost a bit of traffic with the move so I went for it and I have been very pleased with the results.

Everyone wants to increase the reach and traffic to their blog and Triberr is a platform that allows you to do that.  Now that it is open to the public and no longer in beta the potential of blog growth is HUGE. In a nutshell, Triberr allows you to create a tribe, add members of that tribe  and share blog content through RSS Feeds through the Twitter feed of your tribe mates.

As you share content you really get to know the people that you are in tribes with. So a few things that I’ve been doing to become a better tribe mate:

  • Check into Triberr at least once per day depending on how many tribes you belong to. I try to check in twice per day because I belong to quite a few tribes.
  • Give Karma.
  • Load share buttons and share content using +1 and StumbleUpon.
  • Follow all of your tribe mates on Twitter and other social media channels.
  • Get to know your tribe mates!
  • Check out and follow the blogs of your tribe mates
  • Leave comments on the blogs of your tribe mates.  [I’m working on this one]
  • Share great content of your tribe mates on your other social media channels.

Have fun and enjoy!

Internet Marketing C.O.D.E. #SocialMedia Marketing Beyond Status Updates and 140 Characters

Social Media is quickly taking the place of traditional media, so shouldn’t there be a conscious effort to step up the INTERNET MARKETING game beyond just a Facebook post and 140 characters and link by way of Twitter.  There are so many other channels that need to be tackled if marketers are NOT to be viewed as people just playing on Facebook and Twitter.

One of the benefits of obtaining advanced training, certifications and or Terminal Degrees in Internet Marketing is having the tools and strategic ability to  provide services beyond the page update and tweet.  Social Media can be a very powerful tool if used properly to promote a brand, increase awareness and engage current / potential customers. If your Internet Marketer has more of a strategic background, they will have the ability to uphold and rock the Internet Marketing CODE:

Content: One of the first things that must be planned when creating a marketing strategy is planning the kind of content that will be provided to a particular social media channel. One thing that must be a given, the content must be GREAT. No matter what Content is still King.

  • Original Content: Creation of original blog content is a great way to provide relevant and useful information to followers. It allows a way to put a spin on a topic while providing information of value.
  • Shared Links: There are so many blogs, websites and new sources online that supplying relevant and useful content is easy to do by sharing links to friends, followers and customers by way of social media channels.
  • Curated Content: This is one of the fastest growing segments of social media and it is really growing in popularity due to the ability to supply an abundance of relevant information to followers. Additionally content curation allows the ability to share a variety of opinions by sharing different content from an abundance of sources.

Optimization: There is an abundance of different social media channels, so much so that it is almost overwhelming. When creating an Internet Marketing Strategy it is highly recommended that a selection of different social media channels are selected and the content is then optimized. This involves merging traditional SEO/SEM strategies into the social media marketing plan.

Delivery: After creating great content, then optimizing that content for social media channels the next step is creating an effective way to deliver that content to your followers.  Facebook, Twitter and Stumble Upon is a great vehicle to deliver your content.  These channels should not, by any means be the extent of your Internet Marketing Strategy.

Evolution: One of the most important thing in any Internet Marketing Strategy is to continue to evolve, grow and add more services to your company capabilities. Evolving beyond social media, status updates and 140 characters is something that we all must aspire to.

Internet Marketing CODE: Content, Optimization, Delivery and Evolution is a MUST!
