Title: Ready. Set. Tweet!!! Week 3 July 25-31
Post by: Blue Highways on July 24, 2012, 08:02:32 PM

Meemaws- if you read this please message me...i need some info.

Ok, lets make the last 2 weeks awesome! This weeks featured members are at the bottom of this post - I will be posting these directions every week as a refresher   


1) I will post each week on Tuesday (it used to be Monday but Monday didn't want to be the day.....that's my story and I'm sticking to it.


2) Make sure to follow all the people on the list.


3) Send at least one tweet per person in the following week.  You can send them all on one day or spread it out over the week.


4) Tag each tweet with the persons Twitter name @_____ and #HAFteam(Handmade Artists Forum)
 
For example...  "The most amazing crazy rock lady I've ever seen!! Shop@aimeesrockworks and see for yourself!  #HAFteam"


5)  Re-tweets are highly encouraged.  (That's why you want to tag with #HAFteam, so we can see what you're saying and also so you can see other tweets you might like to pass along.)


6) If you prefer to set up your tweets on one day, there are great programs out there to help you.  I really like Tweetdeck, but I know there are other services folks love too.


7) When your shop is featured please make sure to send out a shout for the forum...http://handmadeartists.com/forum (http://handmadeartists.com/forum)

I've got all of my tweets for this week set up through Hootsuite.....I think I may have left off the tags on some last week...because I almost did that this week!

I am a day behind, I am not getting my emails the day they are sent.
I have everyone in my Twuffer for 1 a daily through the whole week, everyone followed, and I did a S/O for the shop daily too.

I am not seeing many follow backs or Rt's. I use the hashtags to search and Rt anyone I see from HAF.
I think we are slow to get the hang of adding the tags and remembering to follow everyone, I know I left off team tags the first week had to redo them.
I have no idea what will help,the only thing I can think of is going to each person on the tweet list and checking there for #hafteam tags and Rt those.

Setting it up! 

 :-*

(p.s. Don't feel discouraged about not seeing a lot of tweets... sometimes folks simply forget to add the tags that allow us 'follower-types' to see them.  Or they just get too busy.  When I used to head this up, I'd have 35+ people sign up and only about 10 would be consistent  8))

I've tweeted everyone :) and thanks for the tweets from ya'll! Then I went through and did some re-tweets. you realize how hard it is to say 're-tweets'? anyway... Thanks for the reminder again, or this would have slipped by me. How can I make it so I don't need a reminder?

I sure wish you could give us a plan for that Karen ;) not needing the reminder I mean. Poor Andrea, really took on a job! I would not do it if I didn't get a reminder, I can not remember anything,lol

Could someone respond to this.  I understand that it does at least place us out there in a tweet, but I am not sure how this really helps anyone as there are not even generalizations about each person or place.

This looks like a follow Friday tweet, it gets people to click on your name and if they follow you  they start to see your tweets and Rt's ;)

Does anyone know if Twitter has a segregation method.  For instance. I have lots of tweets that come from followers and people that I follow just because I like to have the flow of information that interests me and some of it does not I agree but.  What I would love to be able to do is compartmentalize say HAF tweeters and FB tweeters etc. It would save me time searching for tweets of people I want to stay up on since I only get a small amount of time to search the tweets everyday., some days not at all.

Hmm, not sure if this is what you're looking for... but I use Tweetdeck so I can break up who Tweet's what.. but I only follow based on how they tag.

I see the option in Tweetdeck to make a group in my columns, so that might be what would work for your case.
