#1: Unlock to Share Plugin

My favorite social marketing tool of all time is the unlock to share plugin. What is it? It’s a simple plugin that “unlocks” additional content when your web visitors share your stuff on Facebook, Twitter or Google+.

How to Better Manage Your Twitter Relationships

social media toolsDo you feel that you’re missing out on engaging with valuable members of your Twitter community due to the noise?

Or worse, do you wonder who the most valuable members of your Twitter community are?

If so, you’re in need of a relationship management tool for Twitter.

Twitter Relationship Management

There are a lot of people who simply do not have the time to figure out who to engage with on Twitter. These people include:

  • Solopreneurs or small-business owners who need to spend most of their time managing their business, not their social media accounts.
  • Social media consultants who find it difficult to remember who they have engaged with among all of their various client accounts.
  • Social media community managers and teams who have to backtrack to see engagement made by other team members.

Even as an individual with a blog, I find it difficult to keep up with my mentions and direct messages on Twitter. No matter how much you want to talk to people, you simply can’t figure out where to start or you just don’t have the time.

Instead of taking you to an overwhelming dashboard of status updates and analytics, Commun.it puts the focus on the most valuable part of any Twitter community from the moment you log in: people.

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.
