5 tips on ManageFlitter work smarter and faster with Twitter!

images

Hello all I’m a big fan of Twitter apps, some are interesting for a day or a month. Actually the only one that has kept my interest is TweetDeck until now! I recently heard about ManageFlitter.

It’s a very good tool for searching on Twitter, let me breakdown the 5 tips for using ManageFlitter:

1. First ManageFlitter breaks who you are following into categories so you can easliy see who hasn’t setup their porfile, fake followers, non-english, high ratio, inactive, talkative, or quiet.

2. Search people by keywords within all Twitter fields or refine to just their, bio, latest tweet, name, username, website, or location. In addition you can then limit results to only verified accounts, popular account, active accounts, or by the amount of followers.

3. Schedule tweets, with a built in peak time indicator determined by country, city AND by the people you follow.

Subscribe for $12 a month and receive

4. Tweet Search – Follow or engage with people who have tweeted a hashtag, have included a targeted keyword or mentioned a specific Twitter account (including your competitors!) in their tweet. Copy other Twitter account’s list of followers or the accounts they follow. Leverage other Twitter accounts to quickly find targeted people to follow.

5. Account Analytics – a quick overview of your current account numbers. View a graph of changes to your followers, following, tweets & influence over time. See who and when someone unfollows your Twitter account.

It’s pretty great tool, very excited to use the location search been waiting for this option forever!!

I came across this site Whil.com  “Meet Whil the New Face of Meditation”. I was intrigued and a little confused the site offers a free how-to 60 meditation how to. Quote from the site:

“With the speed of information coming at us today, whil is the tool to help you hit your reset button and reboot before you burnout. It’s 60 seconds of meditation to help you calm the mind, make an immediate measurable commitment to do something great, and the power to achieve it.” 

When you click on shop there is a big circle that says “but you already have everything you need.”  The site  is clean, well written, and lovely…..but why? what is it for? Then I figured it out, it a brilliant advertising  campaign from Lulumon! I love the idea, I can’t wait to see how far the campaign reaches, and the attention it receives. So far 175 likes of Facebook & 140 Twitter followers.

295193_340653212661128_1869150675_n

Brands for the People is an online branding agency for startups. Which I have a passion for 🙂  They founder Andrea Shillington taken the offline branding agency and built a business online. Their branding process starts with a branding course to give businesses the tools they need to get clear about brand messages. The platform then matches startups with their hand-picked graphic designers from all over the world. It’s a win-win for the designers, because they get connected with clients all over the world that they love working with.

Their Vision: We will rest when businesses make a profit without being greedy. We will exhale when we’ve helped hundreds of thousands of startups become world famous brands. And, finally we dream of a day when the discussion about branding is no longer about the logo design.

Oh they also have great Youtude videos and a helpful Twitter feed.

I’d love to hear from anybody who has taken the course!?
