Over the past 2 years I tried, failed and tried again to understand how Twitter ‘works’. Now I run 2 highly successful accounts, several fast ‘growers’ and help a colleague with another.
With Twitter, one of the measures of impact is called Klout and has a score from 1 to 100. Justin Bieber with 52.7 million followers scores 100.
My main account https://twitter.com/parapalLearning drives people to my website, maintains a global reputation and sends a ‘tweet’ every hour. It has over 1,500 followers and a score of 53. It gets from 50 to 75 retweets a week, with a reach of up to 75,000.
My ‘work’ account https://twitter.com/CWilliams6007 maintains a certain reputation and I also use it to talk to some important people in the Further Education world. It has less than 200 followers, but a score of 47.
My growers have less than 100 followers, but have Klout of up to 30.
I help my friend with her Ladybird Book feed, https://twitter.com/LBFlyawayhome which provides unique content. It has about a thousand followers and a score of 51. Helen tweets pictures 2 or 3 times a day, but almost all of them get shared as they are very high quality. One particular image was shared 34 times with a potential reach of thousands of views.
All 3 accounts have only been being actively grown since the beginning of 2014.
In contrast, the account of a published and well regarded social media consultant has 46,500 followers and a score of 63.
I offer 3 services for twitter accounts.
- Retweet and follower support. Helping to build reputation, followers and retweet base through the use of various 3rd party accounts. *From £10 a month.
- Basic management, providing a constant twitter presence with optimised tweets for you, while you build your following and talk to your ‘customers’. *From £10 a month.
- Enhanced management, providing a constant twitter presence with optimised tweets, following targeted customers (location, business and interests), building retweet base and baseline ‘customer’ communication. *From £30 a month.
All managed accounts require a 4 month minimum up front payment as, depending upon the number of followers you already have, this is the minimum time required to build a successful account at the economical rates I offer.
* These low rates are available for small businesses with less than 5 employees.
