Welcome to the weekly wrap for another week. This week I focus on some interesting websites I’ve found that help you use Twitter more effectively.
Twiends – Twiends is an interesting concept. You register and link your Twitter, Facebook and YouTube accounts. You set up a profile and add your interests. Then, based on your interests, you’ll be matched with people with similar interests – so on the Twitter page, you’ll see other Twitter users with similar interests to you. If you follow them, you’ll earn some ‘seeds’. A seed is the Twiend currency. You can earn up to 9 seeds for every action you do – following someone on Twitter, liking a Facebook page, or watching a YouTube video. Once you’ve accumulated some seeds, you’re able to offer your seeds to others in exchange for them doing similar actions on your social media pages. That’s a very broad overview – I’ll do another post on this over the next week.
Triberr – I’ve had a brief look at Triberr.com. Basically, you register and get to join a ‘tribe’ of people who blog about similar things to you. You hook up your blog’s RSS feed and every time you write a new post, it gets re-Tweeted by your tribe. You, in turn, re-Tweet the articles the other people in your tribe write. This seems to be a good way of finding new readers and helping others out. If you’ve got any experience with Triberr, leave a comment and let me know what you think.
Tweriod is an interesting website that analysis your Twitter account, looking in particular at your followers. It can tell you what times the majority of your followers are online. Because I live in Australia, I’ve always suspected that when I’m sleeping, most of my Twitter followers are awake and Tweriod confirmed this. Now I know the best times to schedule my important tweets.
FollowFridayHelper.com – I came across this site last week and used it today for some #FollowFriday tweets. You login to the site and give it access to your Twitter account. It’ll then track all the people you’ve interacted with on Twitter, all those who’ve re-Tweeted you, mentioned you etc. You can then select the people you want to mention in a #FF tweet, write it on the website and submit it. I’ve never got into the whole #FollowFriday thing in the past, but this site makes it easy to do and I’ll probably use it a lot more now.
Finally, I talk about pricing of products, particularly those in the internet marketing world. Watch the video to see what I’ve got to say.
That’s it for another week. I hope you enjoy the video – leave a comment below to let me know what you think.
