Tweeting on a regular basis is a good way to keep your audience engaged and following, but that is not always an easy thing to do. This is where automated tools come in handy. Here are some of the best ones to help you keep your followers up-to-date even if you are busy with other things.
Buffer is one of the well-known social media automation tools available. Its Twitter scheduler lets you create and line up posts for a whole month. The tool also lets you adjust your posting schedule more precisely. You can set more updates for the days when your followers are more likely to engage with you, giving you better traction.
The tool even comes with its own analytics features. This tells you whether your devised schedule is working as intended so you can make adjustments. It also has a variety of apps and extensions, letting you integrate it further into your larger social media marketing strategy.
An important aspect of creating your Twitter schedule is listening to relevant conversations, which is where TweetDeck comes in handy. This Twitter client lets you quickly search for any profile and monitor relevant hashtags or keywords. It is also easy to use; all you have to do is set up a column for your target keywords to view the relevant conversations.
Tweetdeck has additional features aside from tweet monitoring, including:
- Tweet scheduling: The basic scheduling feature lets you add different media to your tweets and make changes to your posting calendar anytime.
- Tweet collections: You can use TweetDeck to collate tweets from your profile and display them on your website or blog page.
- TweetDeck Teams: This feature lets you easily assign tasks to team members and give them access to your Twitter profile.
- Link multiple accounts: You can link and track up to 200 different accounts to TweetDeck for monitoring and management purposes.
These added features make TweetDeck versatile either on its own, or as a support tool for other apps.
Divr.it is a useful tweet curation tool that will help you create a steady stream of content even if you don’t have enough original content available. It works by looking for different tweets that are relevant to your page and reposting them automatically. The tool has a variety of ways to get content, giving you greater curation flexibility.
One such option is EverQueue which lets you recycle the best posts from your other social media accounts. You simply fill the post schedule with links to your social media posts. Once you have lined them up, the system will repost and reshare it multiple times to gain more exposure.
Managing the list of accounts you interact with is also essential for maintaining a thriving Twitter page. ManageFilter is one of the various tools you can use to sort out the list of people you are following. It lets you easily unfollow people from a simple dashboard and find new ones to follow using specific keywords.
The tool also has its own scheduling feature called PowerPost. It lets you determine the times when your followers are active and schedule your posts accordingly. The tool even gives you the time when you get the most engagements for better planning of your posts.
The examples above are just some of the tools you can take advantage of to make Twitter account management easier. Explore each tool, and decide how to best use them for your needs. Remember though that you still need to be present to interact with your followers and audience so you can grow your Twitter presence even more!
