How To Triple Your Production With Each Tweet You Post
Social networking has quickly become the new “in” thing to do in cyberspace. Whether you’re using it to organize your social life or you’re trying to expand your reach as an author, social networking can help you reach those goals because it allows you to reach an audience you might not otherwise reach. Plus, if you’re using it to promote your business, the interpersonal nature of social networking sites gives you the chance to interact with a much more personal voice.
The trouble is that there’s no set conventional wisdom on the most efficient ways to use social networking. It takes time to understand the benefits and potential uses of each platform, so getting comfortable doesn’t always happen right way. That comfortable feeling comes eventually, but in the meantime, you need to manage the time and effort you spend on social networking for your business. You can do that by trying new things and regularly evaluating the strategies that work best for you.
Another way to manage your time is to connect your networking profiles together. Save yourself a significant amount of time by connecting your Twitter account to your Facebook and LinkedIn profiles with these steps.*
Connecting Twitter with Facebook
- Have your login information for both Twitter and Facebook handy.
- Login to Facebook.com.
- Search in the top search bar for the Twitter Application.
- Add the application to your account.
- Then, allow and authorize access for Twitter and Facebook.
- Enter your Twitter login information and select the option to update your Facebook status.
- Choose your preferred settings and click “Allow.”
Connecting Twitter with LinkedIn
- Login to LinkedIn.com.
- Click on the Twitter icon below the “Share an update” box.
- A pop-up window will ask if you want to allow access to Twitter – allow and authorize.
- If you’re logged into Twitter already, it’ll connect right away. If not, you’ll have to enter your login information.
- Choose your preferred settings.
- Complete the process by selecting “Save Settings.”
With these connections alone, you’ll triple your production with every tweet you post. Your Twitter followers, Facebook friends and LinkedIn network will all be alerted to what you’re sharing.
Just keep in mind that these are just two steps in the process of engaging on each platform, so you still need to log into each account regularly to keep up with interactions.
