Hi, now we all know that using social media is an absolute must in your overall marketing mix and certainly Twitter is a vital component of that. However, using social media is all well & good but to get the right level of return from your marketing can be tricky so in this article I’ll cover my top 5 Twitter apps.
There are so many Twitter apps out there you can go insane looking at all of them. Of course, what you need depends on what you do with Twitter. Instead of producing a huge, exhaustive list of every application out there, I’ve picked a few of the most-used Twitter applications to introduce to you, along with what they can help you do.
Tweet Adder is considered the gold standard of Twitter applications. The coolest thing about Tweet Adder is that it’s designed for managing multiple accounts. If you’ve got a couple of different niche sites going all with different lists of followers, this makes it really easy to manage everything. It’s simple and easy to use, and it’s a desktop app for both Mac and Windows.
You can also use it for more refined searches, auto follow and unfollow, stats and tracking, automated posting schedules, and just about anything else. Just like the site says, this program is used by lots of big names like Bill Gates, CNN and more.
TwitterFeed is another great app for marketers. Its main feature is that it automatically tweets your blog posts and updates through an RSS feed to all of your followers. Once you post it, the tweet goes out to everybody and you don’t have to repost it on Twitter.
It has a whole bunch of other features as well that help you with scheduling, updates, following, unfollowing, etc. Another awesome thing about TwitterFeed is that it’s free!
TweetBig has all kinds of different features, but the main thing that’s cool about it is that it gets you targeted followers. You can get over a hundred new followers each day.
One of its most popular features is Follower Time Bomb. This allows you to put a time limit on your follows. When you follow someone, if they don’t follow you back in a certain amount of time, it automatically unfollows them.
It also has features for scheduling, managing and looking at stats. A personal fave of mine is the Red Carpet Finder. It finds the people among your followers who have the biggest following themselves.
Hootsuite isn’t strictly for Twitter; you can use it for all of your social media platforms. It uses RSS feeds so that you can update everything at once and you can use it to schedule tweets and posts, manage bookmarks, and look at stats.
What I like about Hootsuite is that it’s cheap and easy to use. It offers a really good, inexpensive package, especially when you consider that you can use it for Twitter and everything else all at once.
Twollo’s another tool for getting followers. You choose keywords and it searches for people that use your keywords on Twitter, and then follows them (this feature is called Find & Follow). It also has tracking options and it’s really affordable. You pay by the number of keywords you target.
The good thing about Twollo’s auto-follow is that it doesn’t just follow anybody; you get more targeted followers because it finds them by keyword.
Just try some of these out and start to see your social media activity and presence grow. It’s an ever growing area of marketing that you simple must be using.
