Sometimes it can be difficult to keep track of every little mention, retweet, and conversation that is taking place on Twitter. That is why we have compiled a list of the top 5 tools to help manage your Twitter account and stay on top of your community at all times!
We personally love Hootsuite! Sure it can manage your Google+, Facebook, and LinkedIn profiles as well, but we personally love it the most for managing ours and our clients Twitter accounts. You are able to customize the feeds to your liking so that you can view what you want when you want. Some of the best features of this program are that you can schedule tweets, save your searches, and even schedule videos and images to be posted at any time that you desire. Another great reason to start using Hootsuite is simply because you can track the statistics of each of your links that you post on Twitter. This is great to see what links were effective and which ones weren’t.
If you are the owner of a social media marketing business, then you should definitely consider purchasing the premium version of Hootsuite right away! You will be able to manage all sorts of social media accounts, and work with your team members in and online based dashboard. Give this tool a try and we guarantee you will not want to use another social media dashboard ever again!
Although Tweetdeck has a few less features than Hootsuite, it still does not mean that is isn’t a great tool to manage your Twitter account. You are allowed to manage your Twitter account through an online based window that contains feeds just like Hootsuite. There is not much else to say about Tweetdeck that was not already explained above, but if you are looking for another free online dashboard for your team members to use, then this is perfect for you!
When it comes down to maintaining your community on Twitter, it can be a bit overwhelming. You are trying to keep up with all of your new followers, mentions, retweets, and conversations that you may lose track of whom are your true influencers and supporters of your business.
Commun.it is perfect to create some great connections and never lose track of who is really interested and engaging amongst your community members. In this online dashboard, you are allowed to track your most engaged members, supporters, and influencers. If you are looking for some suggestions as to who to follow, then you can view a list of people that you should consider following or unfollowing.
All in all, Commun.it is a great tool for maintaining everything going on within your community, and helps you add other beneficial members through this tools suggestion list. Commun.it is currently an invite only Beta, but you can visit the website to request an invite. We use this and truly recommend it to social media community managers everywhere!
Crowdbooster is a great tool for tracking your Twitter accounts analytics. You can view how many new followers you have, the amount of tweets you posted, how many mentions you received, and the amount of retweets that you have acquired. This management tool allows users to view the amount of impressions that each of their tweets has received on a graph dotted with circles everywhere. If you click on one of the dots you will be presented with how many replies, retweets, and overall impressions that your tweet has received.
The best feature overall is the fact that you can receive a weekly update feature that can be sent directly to your email. This is great for community managers that do not have the time to overlook all of the analytics themselves and want everything in one easily understandable email. Plus, Crowdbooster will give you a list of your top followers so that you can give them a #FF (Follow Friday) shout out. Also you will receive a list of influential followers that they suggest you should be engaging with.
If you are looking for a easy way to unfollow all of the people that are not following you back, then ManageFlitter is your best choice. This program shows a simple drop down list filled with all of the people not following you so that you can either manually unfollow each, or pay for the premium version and unfollow all of the them in one simple click.
There are also another few lists that you can choose from to see whom is and isn’t active on Twitter. Just like the “Not Following” list, you can view who is talking and who is inactive, which makes it easier to choose who you want to keep, or who you want to delete. This is a great way to keep your community free of inactive profiles, or even profiles that do not contain any images, since we all know those are usually the people that never visit their Twitter profiles.
