How To Tweet All Day & Still Do Your Job

Tweeting Links = More Followers

Tweeting Links = More Followers

According to studies by Hubspot’s Social Media Scientist, Dan Zarrella, Tweeting more often has positive results on the number of followers you have and the number of ReTweets you get.

In his first report Dan details how including links in your Tweets can lead to more Tweets being ReTweeted by your followers. In the second report his research shows that the amount of links you Tweet and the amount of followers you have are positively linked too.

So, sharing more information via Twitter, with links, results in a positive outcome. Finding relevant content to Tweet, content curation, can be time consuming. But curating content can be a powerful marketing tool, how do you manage this cost effectively in your busy schedule?

In the video below I show how, in 20-30 minutes a day, you can use Google Reader combined with BufferApp to Tweet all day without it effecting your job.

    Sean, the video is quite useful and easy to follow. What I’m wondering is how do you manage to read 10-20 articles, and post them, in 20-30 minutes? That allows 1.5-2 minutes per item, not counting the time spend scanning items you decide are not worth posting. It took me about 8 minutes to absorb this post alone. Do I need to enroll in a speed reading course? 🙂

  • @google-15473762dd8a72a14f03541c8ba53872:disqus Most of my Buffer work is done whilst having breakfast, replacing reading the newspaper. It takes a bit of practise, but as long as you choose the feeds to include in Google Reader carefully then scanning the titles is really quick. I will then read the articles, scanning longer ones (saving to Instapaper if of interest), before adding to Buffer.

    On speed reading, it is really useful for business books and articles; I can recommend The Speed Reading Bible by Jan Cisek. With some of the techniques in the first few chapters you can improve your reading speed considerably.

    Give it a try, Sean.

  • This is a very interesting study. I read it when it came out and started tweeting at particular times of the day for both here in Europe and the States. I was surprised by the time effect; Friday afternoons seemed to be the best time to get retweeted which surprised me. Here in Sweden people finish super early on Fridays and are out of the office. But in the US I tend to get more RTs Friday afternoon if I post for 15000 EST. 

    Scheduling tweets inspired by Zarella has also seen an increase in traffic: I wrote about it here:

  • @jonbuscall:disqus I am a HubSpot fan, love their studies and whitepapers. Great to see you’ve trialled it and applied it to your specific time zone.
