P hoto this …
In many ways, Twitter is much like projectile vomiting – an energetic firehose and uncontrollable that it is
and the management of Twitter … well, it might feel like trying to take. a sip of this firehose.
Many of you dread Twitter for that reason alone, and I do not blame you.
So whatever has to a marketer ?
On the question if this is where your target audience.
Automate the life out of it?
No siree! Much that gap …
So what is the answer to this pain in the neck that is-it-suck-you-in-n-ever-you-spat-out situation Twitter?
Manage. Put yourself on a budget Twitter time.
Twitter presence Worth Building
Before discussing the management of your time on Twitter, I feel like I should say something.
If driving traffic, leads, sales Twitter is your goal to be on Twitter, then you need to focus on building a significant presence Twitter.
Otherwise … your time would be better spent elsewhere.
If Twitter is worth, it is worth doing well. Click To Tweet
As I mentioned in the resource of the movement of social media, I set up for traffic generation drives coffee (hey, you!) Put your time into it – say, 30 days – to learn everything there is to know about it, grow your presence, influence and reach.
Master, in other words.
- Be part of the conversation.
Listen. Think. To weigh.
- Focusing on others.
Quote. Promote. Share.
- Add self-promotion .
Your own program comes last. And moderation.
Of course, to do all this, you need a plan. A strategy. A routine that will keep you on track to achieve all of the above in 30-40 minutes a day.
Let me introduce you to your new best friend Twitter :. The daily routine Twitter
Twitter management: the daily routine
Your Daily Routine Twitter is for …
- to keep you on Twitter long enough to be productive
- so that you can freely attend to things that absolutely need your attention
- and some do things that are useful if time permits .
What you see below is the collective effort of several central Twitter users who seem “ still there ” – it almost seems like they do nothing but Twitter day in and out. Here’s how good and they are sensitive.
Of course, nothing is further from the truth: these people to run successful businesses, and Twitter is a small part of their daily routine
However,. everything they do on Twitter is working fine.
And now you can also work well Twitter -. with the help of daily routine Twitter
In reaching this Twitter management routine, I took my own daily schedule Twitter as a base, then balanced with what others Twitter power (you will hear them below) shared with me, and now – this very useful Twitter Daily routine was born
- blocks Schedule updates [ being ]
- Read @mentions and answer all [ 2-3x per day ]
- Scan Twitter timetable for conversations to jump in and content to retweet [ 2-3x per day ]
- See direct messages (DM) [ 1x per day ]
- profiles “Visit influencers; read, retweet, engage [ 1x per day ]
- Twitter Search for conversations of interest [ 1x per day ]
You should set aside about 30-45 minutes a day to follow this routine.
Let’s talk about this in a bit more detail.
Program your Tweet Blocks [ being ]
My secret not so secret (now that I told my Bite-Size traffic Hacks email subscribers about it!) to increase visibility Twitter is tweeting blocks 3-4 tweets with my upper block content.
In this way, my tweets stand out on time Twitter, I still book value since a 3-4 tweets is mine, and my own content more visibility by sitting in top of the block.
For more information on tweeting blocks, read How to make your Tweets More Visible [Twitter Traffic Hack].
I do not know what content to share? Read more!
Set up Google Alerts for your industry and sent automatically to your inbox.
You will have a lot of great content to share in no time.
I try to program as many blocks tweet in advance as I can, but since I read a lot every day, I inevitably end with a little programming content on the go as well.
For this reason, I keep my open buffer at any time and just add more content blocks to my tweet as I discovered. Of course, you can use the Chrome extension buffer practice for that too.
Read your @mentions and answer any [ 2-3x per day ]
Listen: This is the key to building a significant presence Twitter
Reply to those who share your content, ask a question, or engage with you in any other way.
Do this at least 2-3 times a day.
Do this even if you do not have time to do anything else on Twitter that day.
Do not think you have time for this? Ann Handley did.
Ann is the head of content MarketingProfs.com, author of the bestseller WSJ, Everybody Writes a girl and all around very busy.
Yet his Twitter timeline is something to admire about. It responds to ALL. UNIQUE. TWEET. his endorsements. Take a look:
You really follow her on Twitter and @AnnHandley learn that Twitter should be all about first hand.
This is another excellent example of responding ALWAYS EVERY single mention on every single platform EVERY single time.
Speaking of the King of theSocialMediaHat.com himself, Mike Allton.
The other day, he managed to surprise me even further by responding to something I posted it on not one, not two, but three social networks: Google+, Facebook, and Twitter (j use the application to help me FriendsPlus.Me share posts across the three networks – currently it is the only application that posts to your personal Google+ profile)
And he said to all. three stations within 10 minutes!
Wow … something to strive for all of us, do not you think?
You should definitely follow Mike Allton on Twitter and other social media network you will find it.
Scan your Twitter timeline [ 2-3x per day ]
This is another must for a significant presence Twitter and healthy: analyze your Twitter timeline to see what people you have chosen to follow updates about
in fact, I have a rule that I have read and retweet or otherwise engage at least three tweets from people I follow before I venture to publish any content of my own.
Good rule, do not you think? Something you might consider making your own daily routine Twitter? I think you should.
check direct messages [ 1x per day ]
I noticed many people on Twitter tend to ignore direct messages because of potential spam.
In my case, it is a big mistake.
You would not stop checking / responding to comments on your blog just because some of them will inevitably be spam, right?
In my personal experience, only about 5% of my Twitter direct messages appear to be spam. The rest is very helpful answer.
profiles “Visit influencers; read, retweet, initiate [ 1x per day ]
This part of your daily routine Twitter is also very important.
I’m sure there are some people in your niche that you are actively working on building relationships with:
- industry influencers,
- peers you want sign,
- back and forth bloggers might spark your interest.
Paying attention to their Twitter activities should become a part of your daily routine Twitter.
Do not expect to see their tweets in your Twitter timeline. Make the effort to specifically visit the Twitter profile of each influencer at least once a day.
This is your chance to take note of this type of content they share, they interact with what they tweet about, and yes, your best chance to engage them on Twitter.
Be knowledgeable, friendly, and consistent.
and share their content. Generously but tastefully, if you know what I mean.
For more information on marketing influencers and how to apply to your business, read:
A great way to make sure you stay with the construction of these relations, even if you can not follow your Twitter daily routine on busy days is to add the RSS feed for these influencers feeds an automatic service that tweets about their content when published.
A word of warning: do this if you are absolutely sure of the quality of content. No relationship is worth it if you start losing followers because you keep sharing mediocre content.
There are many services that will automatically tweet about the new specified RSS content feeds.
Buffer, of course, is one of them, but you must have at least their impressive buffer plan to do ( if you ask me, $ 10 / month is the sentence ).
I also used my Twitterfeed for sharing RSS feed for years -. It is free and simple to use
I know some readers Traffic Generation Cafe automatically share my blog RSS feed on Twitter. I can count on them to be there for me, and I am honored their trust.
If you decide to join them, I’ll sing my Yous Thank you for every time I see your tweet. Are you ready for this? Here Traffic Generation Cafe RSS.
Twitter Search for conversations of interest [ 1x per day ]
Now you go beyond your own Twitter Timeline to search for conversations to jump into.
Go to https://twitter.com/search-home, research your topics of interest, and enter into some conversations.
While you’re there, go ahead and search for your own name and / or company name to see if someone is talking about you.
And there you have :. Twitter daily routine that will keep you on track and in line with your goal – to build a significant presence Twitter without it becoming a productivity killer
As promised, you also hear a few Twitter pros who share how they ‘do everything’.
What Pros Twitter had to say about their daily routines Twitter
How do they do?
We’ll find out.
Larry Kim, Wordstream.com
1. Find interesting things to share.
I use tools like Nuzzel and Buzzsumo as Pinterest to find interesting things to share and understand what subjects are oriented at this time . This is usually 30 minutes in the morning and I plan things using Hootsuite .
It also inspired me with things to blog about.
2. Take Uber to / from work.
Last year I started taking an Uber to go to work every day (I do not even own a car) and is around 20 minutes on social media in each direction, the more me saves 30 minutes each way to not have to take the bus.
I use this time to respond to things, retweeting things, check DMs, the #ppcchat scanning, etc.
3. Are very lists of people I scan and respond quickly organized.
I follow a lot of people so it is virtually impossible to deal with this chronology. I have 5 lists of people I can quickly scan and engage.
They are organized according to the frequency they tweet and their level of influence. I’ll usually start with the people who tweet the least and the most influential.
I have notifications enabled for only 3 people, one of them is Rand Fishkin of Moz.
4. The biggest time sucks for me is mucking around with Twitter and Facebook ads .
I run over 1000 campaigns this month. Mostly test strange ideas. It is probably 2 hours a day!
But keep in mind that I do a ton of blogs on social media ads, so it overlaps my work day to day.
5. Also I have a management assistant helps me with other things like e-mail, scheduling, travel, slides, etc. This frees up time for me to do this stuff!

My daily Routine Twitter is actually quite simple:
- check mentions 2 – 4x per day using mobile Hootsuite;
- check direct messages 1x per day using Hootsuite office;
- I use to feed my SocialOomph evergreen share content and mix Hootsuite, Buffer, JustRetweet, Triberr and Feedly plus Twitter lists to generate actions and retweets curated.
Now a difference to me more is that I do not actively looking for business, so the follow-up conversations and that kind of social listening “for possibilities are not part my mix.
If I was looking for customers or concerts, I have to spend more time looking … and for that I used saved searches as currents within Hootsuite.

I manage only two @marketingprofs and @annhandley.
My approach to each is different – because of @marketingprofs I also represent the brand (so things like responsiveness and customer service come into play)
I feel less of. @annhandley on it, I’m just a person, not a big company.
A “Ann Day” in Twitter management of life is not unlike Ana, with some differences.
1. Read all @mentions and answer / all process (to the extent they require a response).
And by “process” I could decided not to respond if it is spam or coarse or rude behavior. “Process” also includes as, Follow, Unfollow, etc.
2. Calendar tweets using a buffer
On @marketingprofs :. Tweets are generally MarketingProfs programs / stations that we actively promote. (On @annhandley I planned tweets.)
3. Check buffers the previous day statistics.
rebuffer anything that either a) is popular based buffers and therefore wider use metrics, or b) is not popular, but should be based on my editorial sensibility.
4. Read news and industry news as well as posts from RSS / friends / publications.
Share (again, Buffer) and / or return comments on anything worthy of shares (based again on my own editorial sensitivity).
Then all day in low periods of time (my “time water cooler”):
- Repeat # 1 liberally
- Scan trending topics from time to time.
- Sometimes jump into the Twitter conversations and / or follow hashtags event or seminar. (According to my interest / day.)
- sometimes reading the general chronology, but lately I’m less and less of that. but sometimes I still do.
- immediately click “Moments” when I accidentally click on it. 😀
outside pad, I use the desktop or mobile for all this ^^.

the most effective way to manage Twitter is not caught up in the mania “Followback”.
There is no value in following people who you are not going to cooperate with. Doing this creates shallow connections and false sense of authority in your own work.
Following on individuals / brands whose content you want, Twitter as a communication tool and content discovery becomes extremely valuable.
That being said, here is my routine:
NOTE: I’m going native. No Twitter management application.
- Check @mentions
- Reply (using Twitter native video if I can)
- Scroll to my RSS interesting stuff
Repeat every 3 times a day above :. In the morning, day and night
I’m constantly using the app buffer to schedule Tweets articles that I found (or my own).
Much of what I plan ends up in my Sunday Seven Newsletter.
I also use some Giphy.com concerts to get eyeballs on Tweets of particular interest.

I tend to do a lot of content curation for myself and clients as Social Media Examiner.
I am always looking for good content that I might be able to share on other networks like Pinterest or Instagram.
I use a mixture of the buffer and Hootsuite to manage my Twitter accounts. Buffer because I can plan and share content that I find easily. Hootsuite because it allows me to quickly organize my Twitter lists and respond to comments and mentions.
I also use Hootsuite to schedule tweets for the content that I created. So Buffer is for curation and Hootsuite’s creation.
I also use SocialOomph share my tweets evergreen.
This is my typical day:
2. Check Triberr and share messages that I find interesting.
If it applies to other platforms like Pinterest or Facebook, I allocate.
3. Open Feedly and check these flows.
I carefully organized food to show me content that is valuable to my audience.
I find many of my content for the day. I fully entitled to Feedly in Buffer.
4. More coffee
5. Open Hootsuite and see if I have to respond to any comments.
I also try to thank the people I see have shared my content. Not perfect, but I try my best.
6. If I have an outgoing blog, I set out for the via Hootsuite.
This is when I usually anticipate customer tweets as well.
7. Add new content that is evergreen in SocialOomph.

My social media routine usually varies.
But I love it when my disciples happen to me on Twitter. I usually check my mentions several times a day, and it is easier to follow compared to email.
Sometimes I wish I could replace my inbox with Twitter . Ha!
Although I do not always want to exact routine, here’s what a typical day looks like.
1. Browse my power for anything from news and share it or program it with Tweetdeck.
I make this first thing in the morning. I rarely plan anything before 10 am and after 7:00 p.m. CT.
According Tweriod, this seems like the perfect time to my disciples.
2. Then I will plan some of my own tweets (if applicable).
I use TweetDeck.
3. I configuring notifications for mentions , so I usually skip and respond to those who, as soon as I can.
4. I am a few cats such as #emailchat of AWeber, so I will go through these foods throughout the day and .
