Twitter ranks as one of the most popular social media tools today. While the name of the game is engage, converse and inform, there are things you can do to increase your off-page SEO and build authority while keeping within best practice.

Social Media Autoposting from your Blog – A Quick Solution

While, many will argue that social media is (of course) about your level of engagement, interaction, and networking, there is also quite a few of us bloggers who “prefer” an auto-posting solution “backed up” by engagement (as time permits).

For instance, a large organization can afford the luxury of a social-media focused individual who “can” take all day (or their 8 hours) and properly engage across media channels for a warm and friendly level of interaction.

The other model is the hard working blogger (usually a 1 person operation) who prefers to spend his or her time on the creation of content and fresh articles.

This article’s strategy “can” be utilized by both but is meant for the single entrepreneur who ALSO needs to alert their followers to fresh posts as they are submitted. This method is also a great way to save massive time (keeping your channels active with content) and driving traffic back from those who are alerted to your activity (your fans, LIKES and followers)

Without further ado, I have devised a simple 3 point plan that each uses a different method for submitting. Continue reading Social Media Autoposting from your Blog – A Quick Solution

Feeding your Twitter RSS Feed into Another Twitter account

First off you’re probably wondering why this is necessary? Why would you want to re-post your Twitter RSS to another Twitter account?


Say you have a music act that posts regular feeds from its Twitter account, and YOU want to repost them out of your own personal account. Theoretically this would give you 2 points of promotion, 1 thru the main Twitter account and 1 thru your own personal Twitter account.

Well this idea can be used for businesses in the same way with all sort of combinations.

Example 2:

Your personal account feeds in “common interest feeds” AND you’d like your business Tweets to come thru directly as well (thru your personal account that is)

OK so with that out of the way you have to solve a couple issues: Continue reading Feeding your Twitter RSS Feed into Another Twitter account

Social Media Deactivation options – Facebook | Twitter

There has been a little confusion over keeping, deleting social media pages in the event you want deactivate.
(Meaning you dont want to give up a page, but dont want it live either)
For simplicity I’ve included the options and a suggestion for Twitter

Personal accounts – can be deactivated and reactivated later (pay attention to prompts instructions when deactivating)
Business / Fan pages – can only be deleted – with no reactivation
Business / Fan pages – will delete if your only admin (personal profile) is deleted / canceled
                                         –  as long as it has 1 admin it will stay live.
(takeaway: protect your business page by having more than 1 admin)

Deactivating your account permanently removes your profile and information from Twitter
Before you deactivate your account, you should know: Continue reading Social Media Deactivation options – Facebook | Twitter

Twitter: How to access your Twitter RSS Feeds?

Sometimes, you will find the need to pump in an RSS feed from your Twitter account. This used to be pretty easy, though Twitter has been screwing around with the RSS buttons and options they used to show. So when you go to your page (logged in or not), this former function seems to be missing.

Have no fear as I have 2 shortcuts for you.
Not a big deal, use the 2 URLS below and replace the “XXXX” with your Twitter page name.

Ok, Welcome again to more Twitter techniques! As a social marketer, you of course want to stay relevant to your field, market or niche.
