TwttrList: Growing Your Social Media Presence

  • Rating: No Rating
Those of you currently using or investigating the benefits of using Twitter for your business endeavors are probably also looking into other Social Media Marketing opportunities.

It can be quite intimidating; the prospect of having to update your Facebook Status, write posts to your blog, monitor your Linked In account and, of course, stay active with Twitter, certainly seems like a significant amount of time that you could otherwise be spending doing things like, for instance, selling!

Well, life has just gotten a little bit easier. I am going to assume that you have already read all the Twitter techniques I have offered to help make Twittering easier and less time consuming (particularly writing a Tweet Plan, using Tweetlater and TweetDeck).

Now, you are able to expand our Social Media reach without really spending too much time creating new and unique content.

If you have not been introduced to Squidoo.com yet, this is a great introductory method to become active in a new outlet.

Squidoo.com is very similar to blogging sites, except that there are templates available and many, many more widgets to make use of. (Take two minutes right now to visit the site. You can view one of my lenses here: Liquid Solar Pool Covers)

I will freely admit that creating a Squidoo Lens (page or post) takes a heck of a lot more time than quickly writing up a blog post. However, it has enormous potential because it has a very far reach.

Enter TwttrList. (Take another 30s to visit this site, right now)

Since you are already on Twitter, all you have to do is pick your favorite Tweets, Twitterers, or Tweet Topics and follow the easy fill-in-the blank guidelines on Squidoo and voila, you are now extending your social media reach.

Not only will your Twitter followers thank you for the extra publicity, but your Tweets will now be available to a whole new audience with only 10 minutes or less time investment. Finally, your Twitter Name is automatically added to the bottom of the lens, thus creating an outlet to gain you many new followers without you having to actively search and woo them.

I strongly suggest, however, that you do spend a few minutes creating a Squidoo Bio page, because that is the most important part of any social media outlet. People want to know who you are and why they should be reading your stuff.

Monique thanks for your articles. We at Leisure Pools believe that Social Media is a segment that needs someone managing our presence. Since it is very difficult for my Marketing Department to keep up we are exploring this avenue with someone that knows and that usually comes from someone under 25. When we bring this person on i will definitely have them visit your articles.
Alex, thank you so much for your comment. Hearing such positive reinforcement is incredibly motivating, and I will do my best to live up to your faith in me!

I find that more and more people over the 25 year old mark are starting to delve deeper into the social media realm, especially with the economy the way it has been. Social media can be entirely free, if you've got no money to spend. If you do have money to spend, and you are really good at what you do, you may have better results, but not necessarily.

The audience for social media marketing, or internet marketing, is much larger than traditional print methods. That is why you are able to view most of your favorite industry magazines online now. They need the audience as much as you do!

The over 25s look at the time it takes to set up a good social media campaign and wonder how anyone expects them to get any 'real work' done! That is what I try to focus on with my tips, because it is exactly how I felt, and still often do feel, about marketing that needs to be updated 1-5 times a week, minimum.

The under 25s are usually just starting out in their formal careers, and so they view the social media marketing as the 'real work'.

I truly believe that, all things considered, you need a healthy balance of a variety of forms of marketing.

When you find someone who fits the position in your business, I will be more than happy to offer any help I can.

Thanks again for your nice words.
