Twitter Analytics: How to Know if Your Twitter Marketing Works http://bit.ly/2ar8xsr

Great podcast from +Social Media Examiner featuring +Ian Cleary talking about understanding your #Twitter analytics.

It's important to be able to understand how you're doing with all marketing efforts and although social media analytics still have some room for growth, there's much you can do to quantify and learn from your current efforts using the current tools available.

Here's what we typically like to look at in our Twitter Analytics:

- How much content did we post?
- What was the engagement on that content?
- How much traffic did our content generate?
- What did the traffic do when it got to our site from Twitter?
- How many conversions/goal completions did we get from our Twitter traffic?

Now, of course you can't do all of this with Twitter's native analytics, but Ian does a great job at talking about how to get deeper insights using +Google Analytics and some other third-party analytics tools.

5 Ways to Get Noticed by Influencers on Twitter
Creative and fun ways that anyone can do! http://bit.ly/2ar72KK

If you do your job right, you don't have to reach 1 million people on any social network. All you need to do is reach 10 people who have a reach of 100,000 each. So much easier than trying to reach all 1M by yourself, right?

Well that's the power of connecting with influencers-- and on Twitter it can be especially simple due to the open/public nature of the platform. However, because it's so simple to reach out to influencers via Twitter, you'll have to get creative.

In this article on +Content Marketing Institute the author suggests some great ideas, including:

- Send a Boomerang
- Send a personalized video
- Create an maintain an "influencers" Twitter list

And if you're not sure how to find these influencers, the article also goes through how you can seek them out and identify the right influencers for your brand.

Our 10 Most Successful Tweets and the Psychology Behind Why They Worked
And no, it's not just because you add an animated GIF http://bit.ly/29QzuCQ

Smart social media marketers understand the application of psychology in marketing. It seems that when it comes to social media, however, there isn't enough teaching in this regard. That's why this is such a great and timely article from the +Buffer team.

They break down their most successful tweets and the key factors that made them successful. You can then reverse engineer their results for your own tweets and see how your own audience responds!

Not every audience is going to respond the same, so it's always great to be testing. And with this kind of methodical approach, you can be sure you'll gain much better insight than just throwing tweets against a wall, hoping that they stick.

A fun big data visualization for #GameOfThrones fans

If you are a fan of #GoT... or just like #bigdata, this interactive data visualization released by Twitter this week shows how each episode was talked about on its platform, down to the characters and emoji used for them.

See how popular each character was, and the emojis used to describe them. Each circle represents a character with its size proportional to how often they were mentioned in the Tweets and color representing affiliation of the character. The most used emojis for each character are displayed under the character name.

See how the characters relate to each other. When two characters are mentioned in the same Tweet, we infer that there is a connection. The thickness of each line indicates how often the two characters were mentioned together.

See which part of the plots were talked about. Plots, in a way, are connections between characters. Clustering the characters based on the connection effectively reveals the different storylines in each episode, and helps us spot the parts that caught the most attention. The cluster color also represents affiliations, so you can see different groups making their moves.

Explore. Drag circle around to change position. Hover each character to see amount of mentions over time and recap related to the character from current episode on the left. Select another episode and see the visualization changes.

It's very cool! Check it out: http://gplus.ly/24mElQU

Social Media Audit #SEOcafe Twitter Chat
w/ +SEMrush and +Rival IQ 

"Whatever is worth doing at all is worth doing well." - Philip Stanhope,

We love it when a Twitter chat host takes the time to put their chat into +Storify AND especially when they go the extra mile to actually edit it to remove bots, spammers, and irrelevant chit chat. The result is a very easy to follow and actually useful "story" that is filled with real tips and actionable takeaways.

Thanks for the invite +SEMrush, it was a great chat and we look forward to future chats!
