The Power of Building a List in Twitter and Following Thousands5:26 AM
P art of marketing my new product, is reaching out to potential channel partners (companies that have a database of my target market) to ...
To gather a list of potential channel partners, I used Twitter lists. Why? Because it’s easy to use, time efficient and I can keep an eye on what my potential channel partners are saying on Twitter.
A Twitter list is a group of users. The list is curated so that you can listen to a certain group of Twitter users, without having to go through your main Twitter stream. I have a number of lists (some of which are public, and some that are private) and I will turn to a specific group of contacts for a certain reason.
One of the biggest reason why building a list in Twitter is powerful is because you can cut out the noise, and focus on the information I need at that time. If I need a great article to share with my audience, I will go to my influential bloggers, if I want to share information that a friend or employee has been posting, I will go to my focused list based on this.
There are so many lists you can create. You could create hashtag lists, client lists, employee lists, personal lists, influencer lists, news lists, journalist lists and much, much more. It doesn’t cost anything to create a list so why not save time, and be intelligent with the people in your community.
Here are 3 ways you can use the power of Twitter lists for your business;
- Journalist/News Directory
- Event/Trade Show Directory
- Recommended Accounts for your community to follow
Use Twitter lists to help your business grow online. It is one of the best social media features that is still not being utilized.
