Listing my productive list of contact management tools for Twitter feat +Commun.it @Commun_it +Cyfe, Nuzzel, +TweetDeck, +Oktopost

#twitter #productivity #socialmediamarketing  
Twitter is one of the best contact building tools on the web. While Facebook will probably remain the number one go-to for small businesses looking to generate sales, there is just something about a Twitter account that makes it so simple to network with others who can be a benefit. However Twitter may be overwhelming …

Love the +Commun.it @Commun_it recommendation, +Ann Smarty. In fact, there was only Tweetdeck and +Cyfe on the list I'd heard of.

I remember trying Cyfe earlier in the year and, for whatever reason, I abandoned it. Can't think why.

I've never really used +Twitter, but am beginning to see the value in it. I think, until you've built a community on Twitter, it can feel like you're talking to an empty room. Watch out: big learning curve ahead!

My article for +Social Media Week on how to finally start seeing some engagement with your blog content!

Got this one go live at +Entrepreneur today praising the awesome +Anita Campbell​ and her "Influencer Awards" idea and implementation!
Marketers have a unique opportunity to get closer to their customers through emerging technology, turning the tables on traditional advertising techniques.

Do Social Influence Scores Matter?

This article has some good information on +Robert Wheeler 's concept. I believe this is going to be a huge value for- everyone in business, what do you think? I know who he is talking about in regards to the big "K".  I am not talking about Kmart. I believe this is more value in the long term then just a score. Please comment what your thoughts are after reading this info. Thanks . Please feel free to also pass on to your social networks, do it now :)

Just signed up to be a BETA Tester, +Ann Smarty - also Pinged #MyBlogGuest  on the comment on the +LinkedIn Pulse article, linked here.

I'd love to see how this goes head-to-head with +Hootsuite. For all intents and purposes, it's offering a similar service, but on first review, re:fluence is more focused on user activity than user volume (thinking "AutoSchedule" feature in H/S).

Nice find. Thank you.
