Slide6

What makes twitter unique?

“Twitter stands in a class apart from other social media because of the open invitation it gives us to talk to the world at large. On Facebook, Tumblr, or Instagram, you have only two options if you want to meet new fans and potential customers..First, someone might find you..and decide to follow you. Second, a customer might share a piece of your content and [someone] might be intrigued enough to follow you. Either way, you’re stuck outside until that person decides to let you in….Everyone else is off limits”Gary Vaynerchuck

Slide7

Caveat…

Don’t abuse that open-ness and use twitter to do overt selling or self-promotion

Tell a story

Provide value in an authentic manner

Slide8

Twitter Basics

Tweets and direct messages

Replies,

retweets

, modified tweets, and quoted tweets

Hashtags

Followers

Images, Video, Animated

GIFs

Lists

Twitter chats

Twitter Search

Your Profile

Twitter for Websites (extending reach)

Slide9

Tweets – they happen in real-time

A tweet can be no more than 140 character.

A tweet can be addressed to someone (an @ mention) by including their @username

A tweet does not need to be addressed to anyone at all

A tweet can include a hyperlink (usually shortened so it uses up as few characters as possible)

Tweets are PUBLIC by default and practice. ANYONE can view all of your tweets by going to your profile or by using Search

Your FOLLOWERS can view all of your tweets in their TWITTER STREAM or TIMELINE

However - If

you start a tweet with @username it will be seen only by those users who follow both you and the person you are tweeting

to (unless someone looks directly at your tweets via your profile)

Starting a tweet with a ‘dot’ or a word means that it will be seen by everyone following you

Slide10

Direct messages

DMs are private messages, viewable only by the sender and the receiver

Start a tweet with DM or D then the person’s @username

You can send DMs by default:

only

to users who follow you

you can receive direct messages from any user that you follow

BUT you can opt-in to allowing anyone to DM you

Be

careful about how CASL might apply

Slide11

Replies, retweets, modified tweets, and quoted tweets

Replies go to the person who authored the tweet (and usually) anyone else who is mentioned in it

Replies are public just the same as any other tweets

Retweets

(RT) are just what they sound like! A repost of a tweet from someone you follow

Modified tweets (indicated by MT) are

retweets

that have been altered slightly to make them shorter

Slide12

#Hashtags

Hashtags

are words that become hyperlinks if they begin with a #

They create a way for tweets to be followed and connected – via link, search, trends, lists etc

You can add an existing

hashtag

to a tweet to add to a conversation – your tweet will have a better chance of being seen that way

Or create your own #

nospaces

– short is best as they use up characters

What’s the challenge with this?

How

Hashtags

Work on Twitter,

Instagram

, Google Plus,

Pinterest

,

Facebook

,

Tumblr

, and

Flickr

Don’t overuse them (The Tonight Show

"#

Hashtag

" with Jimmy Fallon & Justin Timberlake

)

Slide13

Followers and Following

Follow relationships do not have to be reciprocal

When you follow an account, you will see the tweets from that account in your timeline

Twitter does not algorithmically manipulate your timeline

The list of accounts you are following is public and can be viewed via your profile

Yes, we are judging you….

If you find someone interesting, look at who they are following to find more (potentially) interesting accounts

Slide14

Images, Video, Animated GIFs

In late 2013 Twitter introduced inline images from its own pic.twitter.com service and then video from Vine –

examples from Buffer

Tweets with images get more engagement

Instagram

photos and videos that are tweeted do NOT appear inline and need to be clicked to be opened

Animated GIFs introduced in June

2014

Periscope for live streaming introduced in March 2015

Slide15

Lists

Lists are used to slice and dice your twitter stream to focus on what is most important to you

You can add twitter accounts to your lists even if you don’t follow them

The number of lists that your account has been added to is another good measure of success

Using Twitter Lists

Slide16

Twitter chats

Really useful for increasing your exposure and building a professional network

Real-time discussion using a

hashtag

so you can follow the conversations

Very wide range of topics

Schedule of twitter chats

Slide17

Twitter Search

The native Twitter search is rather cumbersome

Search by username, keyword,

hashtag

Advanced search

provides more options

When we look at

Hootsuite

we will take a more detailed look at the data that can be extracted into separate streams and how we might use it

Slide18

Profile

Have one! Fill it out

For professional purposes you should have a photograph of yourself or at least a logo – your objective is to make connections

Profile should contain information about your interests and who you are

Should contain a link to another online presence of your choice

Think about how your profile looks on mobile and on the desktop

Slide19

Extending the use of twitter – website integration

Twitter provides a variety of widgets Buttons for following an account, hashtag etcWidgets for embedding tweets on a web pageEmbedding a timelineTweet buttons on a pageCode for tweeting a text snippet – ClickToTweet tool generates the code. Some examples of how to use it

Twitter for Websites

Slide20

Owned, earned, and paid media on Twitter

Owned – an organization’s own twitter account or accounts

Earned – follows,

retweets

,

favourites

, lists, mentions

Paid – Twitter for Business:

Promoted trends

Slide21

Questions to ask about your twitter content

Is it to the point?Is the hashtag unique and memorable?Is the image attached high quality?Does your voice sound authentic? Will it resonate with the twitter audience?

Too many disasters to choose from…..for example

Chrysler’s famous critique of Detroit’s drivers

Slide23

Twitter successes and disasters – your turn

Work in small groups

Do some research

Find one example of a fabulously successful use of twitter

Find one example of a terrible twitter #fail

Be ready to demonstrate your findings to the class

Slide24

pinterest

Slide25

What is distinctive about Pinterest?

VERY visual

Female demographic outnumbers male by a wide margin

Very fast growth rate since launch in 2010

Very effective for actually selling stuff…via direct click through to product

Some

worries about copyright issues

because of image placement on third-party website without permission

Slide26

Think creativity…

“Unless you sell a product that no woman in a million years would want for herself or any person in her life – and that’s a pretty limited list of products – or your legal department is dragging its feet, you’re a dope if your brand is not on Pinterest”Gary Vaynerchuck

Slide28

What is Pinterest?

Place to create online collections – primarily images and video

Pins are “visual bookmarks” that link back to the site they originated on – a

referral

for a brand

People add pins directly from websites or apps via a “Pin-It” button

Users create collections of “Pins” into “Boards”

Any pin can be “re-pinned”

Home feed – pins from people you follow appear there

Slide29

Interaction and engagement

Likes

Follows

Re-Pins

Comments

Slide30

Business accounts

Identify yourself as a business

Verification available (adds to consumer confidence)

Create a range of boards with different themes related to your business (people follow individual boards according to their interest)

Naming of boards is important (so they can be found via search). Keep the name length to 20 characters or fewer (so it doesn’t get cut off). Be clever and creative

“Secret” boards available – create a collection before you publish

Slide31

Best practices

Don’t just pin your own products

Pin related products from others

Be creative – tell an inspiring story

Make sure your own product pins link back to somewhere useful (NOT just your home page)

– food and aspirational kitchens

How realtors are using

Pinterest

NHL

hashtags

Slide33

What’s important

High quality content – especially photographs

Good

descriptions (used for search too)/

aspirational messaging

Encourage a sense of authentic community – not overbearing selling. Think long term

Make sure the link goes somewhere useful. Every photo should have a relevant hyperlink

Slide34

facebook

Slide35

Facebook

11 years old (founded in 2004 – became a public company in 2012)

At the end of Q4, 2014

1.39 billion active users (log in once a month or more)

890 million daily users (745 million of them on mobile)

Over 1 million advertisers

Revenues for the full year 2014 - $12.47 billion

Mostly from advertising

Slide36

So, what is a marketer to do?

Marketers use

Facebook

for owned, earned, and paid media because….

“Familiarity breeds acceptance.”

Vaynerchuck

“Hard to dismiss a platform as skewing too young, or too experimental, or too trendy, when your niece, your brother, your seventy-two-year-old dad…are on it”

Vaynerchuck

Slide37

Paradoxically, it is the size of the platform that causes the problem for marketers

With that massive amount of content streaming into a users Newsfeed, it is almost impossible to get and keep attention.

Marketers need to understand how

Facebook

manages the Newsfeed algorithm, called

Edgerank

Slide38

The Edgerank algorithm tweaked to reduce organic reach

Analysis of more than 100 brand pages - organic reach was around 6 percent, a decline of 49 percent from October 2013

For large pages with more than 500,000 Likes, organic reach hit 2 percent in February 2014“Organic reach of the content brands publish in Facebook is destined to hit zero. It’s only a matter of time.”Marketers being pushed to paid media

Slide39

Other significant Edgerank changes aimed at reducing spam
