Yesterday I shared on facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter about a great tool that I have come across, which has been key in serving my social media marketing clients in an efficient way. The message was: “Awesome automated Twitter tool for getting 1000’s Twitter Followers & Customers quickly http://om.ly/rTwe ”
Today a comment on a LinkedIn discussion was: “Why would anyone want “an automated Twitter tool”? Seriously. Why?”
This was my response:
If you have a wish to connect with Twitter users with a certain profile (for example health coaches), or Twitter users tweeting about a certain topic (for example health issues), people who you would like to share your knowledge with – then an automated Twitter tool could be a very efficient way of connecting with them. Instead of getting recommendations or finding individuals one by one, you can make a search and start follow a number of them with one click. Similarly, you can make a search and find whom of them are close to your area, or located in the city where you will be for a presentation etc.
I for example will help promote a devise that will alleviate colic for babies. Help that is not available in the US today. If I can make a search and “automatically” follow those moms who has tweeted about that issue with their babies, and send a DM to those who choose to follow me (or the brand) back, that would be a very quick way of reaching out to someone who has that need.
Twitter today has $100M users. For most of them it is probably a very time consuming tool to use. For others it is a great way to find clients. This is the tool I am using to automate following for my clients: http://om.ly/rTwe , and I would be happy to provide you training on how to use it. Or – do it for you, should you choose to spend your time differently and still have the results.
Make real connections!
