Two Great Uses of Twitter in 24 Hours

I have a collection of over 150 best of the best marketing tactics. When I see something outstanding, I simply take a screenshot, add it to a PPT and add some commentary. I usually follow the tactic for a few days and try to understand the resulting outcome. How often was it shared? How many comments did it generate? What do free/paid tools say in metrics?

Here we see the great people at Spin Sucks taking #FF (Follow Friday) to the next level.  A blog post about the thoughtleader they are highligting.  Excellent – and likely to generate a giant thank you and possible link from a thought leader.  Well done.

Example two.  I love Twitter Chats.  I have been “chatting” in organized Twitter chats since 2009 and by far my favorite it #B2Bchat on Thursday Nights 8pm ET.  In this example we see a blog post from B2Bento – (A brilliant Marketer based in Singapore – and one of the leaders of #B2Bchat).  He simply took his favorite Tweets from last night’s chat and used Storify to create a blog post. He then Tweeted the link out to some of the folks he curated some Tweets from. Smart. Efficient. Well done.

While I would love to make every chat – I don’t.  I did create a chat -that has been running successfully for months….more on that another day.  I would be happy to advise anyone that want’s to start a chat in their industry.
