1. Let the Tweets Dance Across the Stage

Muriel MacDonald, writing for Tint tells how the SFBallet uses Twitter to attract and engage their younger audience members.

I’ve used Tint with many of my events. The social wall is easy to implement. Just fill in your followed accounts and hashtags, hook up your projector, and the Tint app displays your best engagement.

2. Mean Tweets

Follow Jimmy Kimmel’s example and use mean tweets to your advantage say Jeannie Walters of Steamfeed. Maybe the mean tweets are true and you need to improve your customer service. Or maybe they’re not and you can get a laugh.

Use verbs! Humans find verbs much more interesting than nouns and they generate more click-thrus.

My favorite tip is don’t use hashtags that aren’t relevant to your brand. I hate clicking on a link that is tagged with my neighborhood and find out it has nothing to do with us. Really!

Tweet more – users with less than 1,000 Tweets usually have less than 100 followers

Benchmark your Twitter Analytics. If you’re training for a triathalon, you keep accurate records of your effort and results. Do the same with Twitter – what is your posting schedule, how big is your following, with retweets – how great is your reach. I currently average a little more than 100,000 reach on Twitter every month. My goal is to increase that to 200,000 by the end of the year. I’l track my activity and see what works.

Mention your town in a tweet and you’re likely to get noticed by other tweeters in your town

Twitter is public – be careful that your retweets are something you’re willing to stand by, even if your boss or customer disagrees. If not – don’t be controversial. Remember the high level corporate executive who lost his job after videotaping himself giving grief to the fast food worker at Chic Filet

How Do You Engage In Real Life?

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014

Someone buys a ticket to your show, comes to the theater … How do you connect with them? Do you ask for a Twitter follow, Facebook Like, email or text sign up? Does your audience immediately do what you ask?

What if they could see their fellow audience members interacting with you?
Use Tintup to display your social streams at your venue to encourage engagement

I’ve seen lots of applications that let you display your Tweetstream, but Tintup is the only one I’ve seen that can incorporate Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and more. If, you have a baby boomer audience, you really need to include Facebook, so the other applications aren’t that valuable.

You can also use Tint to create a page on your Facebook page or website to highlight your communication. I’m using Tint to show people my social media marketing on my website here.

Additional ideas for Tint use here …
