Increasing Engagement #SocialCafe 20160503

  1. @KivanaFord from what I understand of SEO, & I'm no expert, it helps bring to the page and could lead to conversion #SocialCafe
  2. @Sherry_FG I wanted them to go to Twitter. There was a possibility of Twitter blocking my posts since I was so new to tweeting #socialcafe
  3. It often depends on who RT you. If they have a huge legit following there can be lots of action @KivanaFord @SarahJ_Copeland #socialcafe
  4. I wonder why it didn't go through. Were you trying to post to Instagram, I've had trouble with it #socialcafe  https://twitter.com/SarahJ_Copeland/status/727673428644274176 
  5. @KivanaFord engagement is tricky but could be easy. Depends on audiences and platforms #socialcafe
  6. @Sherry_FG it was on Hootsuite when I first began using it. Out if fear I have not tried again #socialcafe
  7. If a post pre-scheduled has not went as planned. What happened? Which platform? #socialcafe
  8. I'm up to continue chatting. Anyone have any social media topics to discuss? #SocialCafe
  9. Not sure! I actually just learned of it about two questions ago lol that may be a question for @socialwebcafe @catiesanchez #socialcafe
  10. It's been fun! Thanks for joining us for our 30 min #SocialCafe Look forward to chatting next week. (& feel free to keep on chatting :) )
  11. Another great tool, to keep it "real" is @commun_it >> building Twitter Relationships #SocialCafe
  12. @SarahJ_Copeland @Sherry_FG yeah I can't agree more to that too! attention span are so short nowadays and it's even harder! #socialcafe
  13. @Sherry_FG @socialwebcafe very true, attention spans are so small these days, you gotta grab it quick or not at all #socialcafe
  14. @mavsocial is another one, especially if you want to work with media #SocialCafe
  15. I use @hootsuite quite regularly. Yet I am interested in other scheduling platforms. #SocialCafe
  16. A3 I like Hootsuite. I want to upgrade but I need to be more $ stable and actually have more content and reason b4 I do #socialcafe
  17. @vocalroots Anything specific, or did you come up with your own algorithms and formulas? #SocialCafe
  18. A3: I don't have any, I am still trying to figure out Hootsuite #socialcafe
  19. A3. As mentioned in previous post, I am familiar with hoot suite- just learned of buffer. Any other suggestions? #SocialCafe
  20. Scheduling is essential when you have a lot of products or info to push @socialwebcafe #SocialCafe
  21. A3: When I was in HS, most of us used to use Metrics to track our followers. #SocialCafe
  22. Quotable Tweets >> Your personal advice based on our topic tonight. Then, I embed it and you get credit :) #SocialCafe
  23. I figure if I don't target my audience. They will not respond. It is important to keep that in mind. #socialcafe  https://twitter.com/socialwebcafe/status/727670149948432384 
  24. Based on that.. does anyone have any quotable tweets that they want me to embed in that article? (this may become a thing :) ) #SocialCafe
  25. As we are nearing the end of our 30 min, I'm sensing an article coming out of this Twitter Chat #SocialCafe ...continued ...
  26. It sounds like #automation (i.e. scheduling) works for some & for others, it needs to be balanced in other ways, less time, etc. #SocialCafe
  27. @Geoff_Hauppier I couldn't completely do away with it. All my groups that constantly post drive me insane but I need 2 know info #socialcafe
  28. Just guessing here.. Two scheduled posts that were important to go out at that time? @SarahJ_Copeland @Sherry_FG #SocialCafe
  29. A2 I don't make restrictions. I try to respond to as many people as possible on all platforms. #socialcafe
  30. @Sherry_FG I tend not to like scheduling my posts. I had it not work twice and that was enough for me to quit #socialcafe
  31. A2 No, I don't put any restrictions on. I try to respond to people as much as possible. #socialcafe
  32. Q3 What are some of your favorite tools to help you stay "balanced" in #socialMedia and #socialNetworking #SocialCafe
  33. A1 I use socialmedia platforms to schedule, remember who my audience is before deciding on a platform #socialcafe
  34. There are so many platforms and they come and go. Some I was following 10 yrs ago don't exist anymore @socialwebcafe #SocialCafe
  35. Good one, @KivanaFord I love hootsuite! I also use buffer and many other tools. #SocialCafe
  36. A2: No actually I've never posted restrictions on here. Is it better to do so? #SocialCafe
  37. @Geoff_Hauppier @socialwebcafe I feel the same. I don't often have ppl needing/wanting to reach out to me #socialcafe
  38. A2.No, but if necessary, you could always throw that disclaimer in your bio or something #SocialCafe
  39. A2.2 I may start asking ppl not to tag me in comments on FB anymore, too many shares of random things going on #socialcafe
  40. In other words, it might be a pipe dream to think we can do it all? @Geoff_Hauppier #SocialCafe
  41. yes because nobody likes waiting for a reply forever. & it's always good to leave a contact that you can be best to reach out to #socialcafe
  42. A2 If I were more popular I might but for the time being instructions or restrictions are not necessary @socialwebcafe #SocialCafe
  43. A2 no, I probably should have when I first started using Twitter since I was unfamiliar with how to use the platform, tho #socialcafe
  44. A2) I don't post it but I do mention it to people prior to giving them information on contacting me. #socialcafe
  45. Q2 Do you ever post "restrictions" or "instructions" (like .. best place to find me.. or "I don't respond to Twitter DM") #SocialCafe
  46. A1.2 I think it's also important to remember to view other platforms. Sometimes I forget to check a couple #socialcafe
  47. A1: I try balance and respond to everyone, but it is hard to keep track of everything #socialcafe
  48. @socialwebcafe I think it works best for me because it's easier for people to access for some reason. #socialcafe
  49. Nice way to put it! @Geoff_Hauppier I could get lost (i.e. like on Pinterest!) if I didn't find some balance lol #SocialCafe
  50. A1 I would balance mostly on Facebook because the platform has a bigger sharing range. I can post and connect links on FB #socialcafe
  51. That is a good idea @catiesanchez Does that work well for you? Like, "Hey, find me on FB.." #SocialCafe
  52. Judith @vocalroots - have you ever thought of (or tried) like a timer method.. (I get 60 min to social network) #SocialCafe
  53. @socialwebcafe that's good. Also, try and show acknowledgement of all posts even if u can't get to all. Like = I saw this #socialcafe
  54. A1. Using different tools to manage and schedule social media post.Sorta like hoot suite #SocialCafe
  55. A1: I would definitely limit my interactions in order to keep track of the progress #SocialCafe
  56. A1 balancing is difficult. Want to answer all but there may be too many. #socialcafe
  57. A1 Time is always an issue. You have to pick your platforms according to what your interests are. #SocialCafe
  58. A1) I usually just spend time most on Facebook over all other social media accounts I own. #socialcafe
  59. A1 I use a combination of automation; selective networks; time management #SocialCafe
  60. I was thinking of deviating slightly. Q1 How do u #balance social media engagement? #SocialCafe Ex: only focus on a few; spend a few min ea
  61. Ok, so lately, #SocialCafe has been sort of mirroring #LinkedInChat.. opening the topic to all of #socialmedia and not just LI
  62. ... then @conpsweeney came along and saved the day and really has been doing an excellent job of co-moderating, hasn't he? #SocialCafe
  63. Wow -that is wonderful. @Sherry_FG Yeah, I started #SocialCafe abt 5 years ago. There have been different partners along the way & then..
