Basic Tips for the Not So Automation Inclined… Discover Twitter content on Twitter: Search By Hashtags, Keywords or @Handles, it’s all there for you and it really is my preferred method of using Twitter. Fully Present and Actively engaged. Some of these CRMs sound nice and some are really great, overall there are so many options and most of them fall into one of four categories:
- Emphasis on Analytics and Data
- Simple Dashboards/Management To Follow & UnFollow, Automate Tweets and Stay In Tune With Relevant Pages
- The CRM Systems Or Apps Really Designed for large companies, mid sized companies ad firms that depend on many employees actively using one or more account
- Direct Message Automation with some that have auto tweet features
Twitter is made to be used, and sure there are ways to save time and scale, but sometimes the best tools are also the worst enemy, breeding the dragons of laziness, overlooking the details, “skip it” attitudes, DM immediate messages on Twitter after an account has followed you with some crappy predictable canned message and a link the one thing that most of the automation lacks is a human touch. And while the time savers may use these tools some of the time at the end of the day nothing pays off better than being actively engaged on Twitter.
