I’ve got a question: “…which traffic source works best for you?” Might be a simple picture or poor few words would be the answer. But! But this is such important question, that it is great to write little bit more what I am doing over social networks. Maybe for somebody cautionary tale, maybe good idea to involve to own social being.
First of all, I am relationship believer. For sure, as You want to involve large communities to Your daily life, there is no doubt to miss possibility of daily communication to everybody. You can stay with truly small community of people that You know relatively well and to develop some more personal relationship. But in this case, Your possibilities of next steps are limited to this community.
Of course, there is an approach to “buy” followers. That is crazy in most cases. We can easily imagine a business that is not as much dependent on relationships. Then this approach is usable to some extent, however I would not use it anyhow.
Thus, let us take the case, when we are daily developing own network of people with some extent of relationship to us. How to achieve this? Simply we have to look for something, what is as common for people as possible. I recognize the music as this glue, that puts people together. Furthermore I love the music of many different styles.
The music as a common glues is great but also has own disadvantage. There are many many people using the music also for marketing purposes. It leads to relative “silence” of Your voice in this community. It does not matter how often You post some new tweet on music, there are plenty other tweets surrounding that Your one. In other words, nobody will “see” your tweets because of huge amounts of others.
All of these circumstances I have recognized still before I posted the first “musical” tweet. So I have decided in first stage to post some amount of “musical” tweets not expecting any feedback. Of course, there was some feedback however, but marginal as expected.
In next stage, when there were amounts of my own tweets on music I prepared search request, that is collecting all of my previous “works” to one whole. Still leaving to people possibility to search directly for other music or content, if they were somehow “tired” of theme proposed. I am not afraid to open to people other doors to leave me, because I know, that exactly those people, that I am looking for will come back again. It is not any scientific fact, there is nothing mystical about it, simply my experience tells me so. I believe to my people, and You believe me. Simple relationship.
What is it all good for? I say, I am relationship believer. In huge competition of people, webpages, blogs and rather important impressive news that You can be daily overwhelmed with, in this competition it is much more effective to build relationship between people than between a human and some webpage. I prefer to learn people to look for me as regularly, as I look for them and offer them as an option to look at the webpage I want to. Not as a duty, but as the option. And as I see, You love this approach, what makes me happy.
It was absolutely clever too, that I am not able to put together so many content of different genre to attract really big number of users to visit also my webpage. So I recognized, that still it is possible to bring the people where I want to simply collecting information on tweets with really valuable content. The people have not so many time to read everything, think it over and some times they have also no idea to look for some information themselves. That is the former beginning to mark some tweets with valuable content by “I strongly recommend” mark. Of course, I am not alone who does this, there are plenty others. The difference is, that I use these words rather carefully so as to keep high level of evaluation. Furthermore, for next steps I use to take into the account also Your preferences given by how much You were engaged in previous honored tweets.
But this would be worth nothing without possibility simply to collect all these valuable articles to one whole again. That is why I use specific search for Strongly recommend reward. And this not only brings people to one place, but it does bring them to this place regularly. In other words, instead of posting tens or hundreds tweets with small engagement, I need less tweets to get people involved. And that is my bonus.
But I knew also, that I will not succeed to find some really very important article everyday, but still there is a way how to bring people to one place simply by their own activity. As I found, there are many people interested in collections of tweets, but they often have not enough of own skills to put things together. Really, not all the people were born with data manipulation and data searching capabilities! Thus if we put together some collection of searches that allow to people to find really important and relevant information they are looking for, it will be helpful.
And this idea is simply the frame around which “What the Others Say” is build.
All these three interest collections allow me to bring people to information they are looking for and as a bonus to build own marketing channel to get people involved into.
For sure, I have next plans and will do what is possible to keep the level that has been set-up. But I do not use to reveal my plans, just follow me, I promise You, there will be interesting things done that will be Your bonus of this crazy connection.
