Without proper planning Twitter for business can be a complicated and time consuming activity.  In this how to stay productive on twitter
post I break down how you can become more productive with Twitter on a daily and weekly basis and some tips on how to make the process a little less time consuming.

Twitter Productivity Daily List

{While this is a daily list- I encourage you to take days where you ‘un-plug’ and don’t worry about your Twitter account. Unless you use it for customer service, in this case simply checking your @ mentions is a good idea for your ‘days off’.}

  1. Share Something (x3)
  2. Retweet Someone You Follow
  3. Engage With At Least 2 People
  4. Check Your New Followers and Follow Back Those Who Interest You
  5. Check Your @ Mentions and Respond

BONUS TIP: Sort your followers into lists on Twitter. It is much more manageable to engage with others on specific topics that interest you when they are already sorted into lists.

Twitter Productivity Weekly List
  1. Unfollow inactive accounts or users that don’t follow you back (if you are not interested in their tweets)
  2. Follow new and interesting users. I generally follow about 50, but follow however many you are comfortable with.
  3. Schedule your sharing posts for the week. In case that you don’t have time to share a lot of articles throughout the week, you will know that this task is taken care of.
Tools to Help You Along the Way
  1. I love and use Hootesuite daily for multiple Twitter accounts. Love it!
  2. Although I don’t personally use these, many people have great experience using them on a daily basis. Checkout Tweetdeck and Buffer.
  3. I also like Friend or Follow to pick out the accounts that you should be un-following.

There are many other tools out there, I’d love for you to share your favorite Twitter tool below in the comments!

Get More Followers
  1. Staying consistent on Twitter is one way to ensure you get quality followers. Share great content and engage with others. Don’t Spam people please :)
  2. For a quick way to make new connections and followers join a Twitter chat. {A Twitter chat is when a group of people follow and use a specific # to discuss topics at a scheduled time} This week I joined in on #ContentChat at 3pm EST and had a great time with the knowledgeable people involved.
  3. No matter how tempted you are, just don’t buy followers. You won’t get any real engagement and you will be missing out on the social aspect of this social media platform.
  4. I also just read a great article with lots of Twitter tips, you can check it out here.
