Since I launched PlusYourBusiness, I’ve focused on one main tactic: include as rich a multimedia experience on the blog posts as I can, while remaining useful.

One of the best ways I’ve found to do this is to take an interview and structure it into a mini-course.

So, this is what I do regularly:

Run a Google Hangout On Air. For example, an interview with someone in social media or social SEO.

Run a Google Hangout On Air and then turn it into a mini-course on your blog.

social media how toDo you want more email subscribers?

Have you tried using social media to grow your email list?

One of the most powerful aspects of social media is just how well it integrates with building a strong email list for your business.

Of all of the various platforms, Twitter offers some of the best (and most unique) tactics to use if you’re looking to increase email sign-ups.

In this article I’ll go over 3 tactics to utilize Twitter’s massive audience to grow your email list with qualified leads.

Let’s get started!

Amy Porterfield does this well. She links to her webinar page in her Twitter bio so followers who are interested can opt in right away.

5 Twitter Tools to Enhance Your Marketing

social media toolsAre you looking for new and creative ways to use Twitter?

Here are 5 lesser-known Twitter tools that your business should be using.

Each of these tools has unique capabilities that may help your business get an edge over your competitors. Oh, and all of these tools are free.

#1: Commun.it—Manage Your Community Efficiently

Commun.it is probably one of the best relationship-management tools out there. It helps you to cultivate your followers on Twitter and make important connections to build your business.

My favorite function is that it will look into your most up-to-date feed and organize your followers into three groups:

  • Influencers
  • Top supporters
  • Engaged Twitter users
community groups

Cultivate your relationships on Twitter based on groups.

By grouping your users, you’re able to focus on not only influential users but people who have previously shared your content and have taken the time to engage with you.
