Follow Friday Top 10 Week 33

#FollowFriday Favorites

Great week on Twitter, Spring like weather and I’m creeping up on a huge milestone in my life… things are good :)

More on the milestone and possible Twitter Contest coming soon.

But as always I was able to connect with some great people this week and shared some of them below in this week’s Top 10. Butttttttttt let’s talk a little bit first… follow friday

My friend @AnnTran_ did a post this week on scheduling tweets on Twitter, if it was good or bad.

So I wanted to share my 2 cents on this.

For me, there is nothing wrong with scheduling your tweets, what you do after the tweets are schedule is what matters.

Scheduling tweets and walking away is bad, but scheduling tweets then being available to reply to any conversation that comes from that tweet is perfectly fine.

Your followers don’t care how the tweets get’s to them, they don’t care if you hand shared it or if it was scheduled. All they care about is if the share is helpful, relevant and if you are there to reply to any comments or questions they send you.

Look at it like this!

Many bloggers write up many blog posts and schedule them to go out thru the week. Now do you care? I know I don’t.

Chances are, neither do you!  All you really care about is if the post was good and if they were available to reply to your comments.

Need more examples?

Ok, the act of buying a gun isn’t bad, it’s what you do with that gun after that makes it good or bad.

Little more dramatic, but you get the idea :)

Now go connect and follow everyone on the Top 10 List! :)

Twitter Tip

 

 

To be more efficient on Twitter you should schedule your tweets ahead of time.

If you do schedule then make sure the content is relevant, timely and helpful. Also make sure to “Be There” after the tweets go out so you can engage your followers after the tweet.

Take 30 min in the morning to schedule up 10 – 15 tweets thru the day that way for the rest of the day all you have to do is pop into Twitter at the times of each tweet for about 30 min to be available to any replies or comment son your tweet.

This will free up a lot of your time and still have you present on Twitter thru out the day.

    Good stuff John, I schedule Tweets using Buffer and Tweetdeck (depending on which account it is for), but it takes me much longer than 15-30 minutes LOL…

    Also, I couldn’t agree more, it’s what you do after the fact. Add to that, don’t schedule all self promoting tweets, share good content and even just general info. Nothing like seeing an account that only tweets #quotes but has 10k followers. Where is the value in that?

    Good article. Scheduling my Tweets ahead of time saves me from spending my entire day on Twitter. I’m set up to receive alerts about any mentions or DM so that I can respond right away and engage in the conversation. But knowing that quality tweets will be going out over the course of the next day is a huge stress reliever.

    Long time no see Keith.. Hope things are good man.

    Yea some days I can find good things to share in 30 min and some days feels like it takes 2 hrs lol

    I’m not a big fan of the quotes,, I do share one a day on some days..but that’s my limit.

    I like motivation as much as the next guy,, but quotes all day every day is ridiculous, and agreed,, no value at all.

    I like to share what I like…some of me, some of you some funny and some news.. that way It’s all things I enjoy and I hit a lil bit of everything and shows my personality a lil bit..

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    Christy that’s the way to do it. Spend time scheduling that way you dont have to worry about what you will tweet all day. It just makes sense. The people that are against scheduling are the people that are not that busy and have the rime to manually share each tweet.. not a good thing :)

  • http://twitter.com/another_blogger Latief Pakpahan

    I tweet and RT what I think important for me and others, I don’t like quote so much
    Thanks John and Keith

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    I agree with you Latief :)

    Hi JP,

    Thanks so much for the mention buddy :) As for setting up tweets, it’s OK if you keep engaging. Remain human, resist the urge to turn into a bot 😉

    Do not be a bot – beep- lol

  • http://twitter.com/adrianslew Adrian Slew

    Being on the other side of the world from my primary target audience back home in the States, I find it convenient to automate some posts that would be more relevant at, let’s say, 2PM vs 2AM. (But, I don’t have a regular sleep pattern and keep weird hours, so it’s not unusual for me to be awake all night!) 

    Unfortunately, even though I have > 20k followers, I rarely get responses to anything I tweet.

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    Adrian.. scheduling just makes more sense all around. Try checking when your followers are online an.. and tweet at those times.

    Also makes sure you follow people that will like what you share or what your blog is about… not targeting the 2 is a big mistake ppl make.

  • http://luisgalarza.blogspot.com/ Luis Galarza

    Excellent point John… Automating your social media updates isn’t
    the problem is what you do after is what counts. So, it doesn’t
    matter your goals engaging it should be your strategy!

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    You got it Luis.. how the message gets there doesn’t matter at
    all.. its what you do once the message has been shared.
