Q and A Help

Question by @hullsean

Still trying to get the hang of this Follow Friday thing, and avoid spam at the same time?

Answer: For me when I did Follow Friday in the beginning before this post idea, I did it for anyone that tweeted any of my tweets for that week, or tweeted me a compliment or that I had a conversation with. It was a small way to say Thank U again to people that were working Twitter correctly around me.

If you do that, and add as many people to one Follow Friday tweet as you can it won’t be annoying.


Question by @rsullivanlaw

What is the optimal number of content tweets a day that should be posted and what is a good ratio of original vs.shared?

Answer: There really isn’t an “optimal” number, but I will say 5 isn’t enough and 100 is to much haha

It comes down to how available will you be around the tweets you share. If you can only be available for 10 tweets, then only post 10 tweets.

Your goal is to be helpful and share great content, but doing that without “showing” yourself with those tweets is a mistake.

Try to stick to a 80-20 or at least a 70 – 30 ratio.

80% other peoples “shared” and 20% your stuff “original”


Question by @richiereveley2

How do you keep track of all your people to thank for RT’s?

Answer: I stay in my Interactions stream on Twitter most of the day, on my computer or if I’m out, on my phone. This way I see what is coming at me thru out the day like, retweets, comments, questions etc… 

Then all I do is in between other things I’m doing I’ll check in to see if anything new has come at me and I reply.

It’s not hard to do, but it takes work, and being available. But that work is what will help bring you more success on Twitter.

Ok, I hope the answers were helpful to you, and if not, then just focus on the 13 great people I shared below :)

  • Skip Prichard

    I’m glad to be in the influencer category and appreciate all of your good work, tweets and posts!

  • Rob Sullivan

    Thanks for the helpful information and featured folks.

  • John Paul

    Thanks Skip and happy to have you on :)

  • John Paul

    Happy to share Rob.. thanks for the great question.

  • Anneliz Hannan

    I like this #askjohnaguiar idea. I am confused on what your interaction stream is on Twitter? Do you mean the mentions stream on Hootsuite? What type of dashboard do you have to manage all the interactions on all the platforms at once…yup I’m looking for the end all to be all, and I know you are the guy to give me the absolute answer ;).

  • wchingya

    What a huge privilege, John. You are an influencer in my twitter community too! Thanks for all the wonderful posts and tweets you shared. Hugs!

  • John Paul

    TY Anneliz.. I’m hoping it works out. The Interaction tab is under the Connect Tab at the top on Twitter. I monitor the platforms manually, gives you more control and nothing gets missed… but lil more work :)

  • John Paul

    TY Ching,, Happy to have you on and connect :)

  • Jayden Chu

    I really like this Q & A and I really appreciate how you keep in touch to these people despite of your busy schedule. Keep it up John!

  • John Paul

    Thanks Jayden, good to see you here.

    Also glad you enjoy the Q and A part.. I think it will be helpful.
